Life-enhancing devices and apps are available at the tap of a touchscreen. All that's needed is a little old fashioned one-on-one to get up and running with confidence. And, if you're the one on the "teacher" side of a lesson in tech education, being able to share these modern day time-savers is a real gift you can give to those special people in your life who may be hesitant to let go of doing things the way they have always been done.
