"New Internet Computer (NIC) Monday says it will work with a Southern California ISP to give older Americans a cheap way to get on the Net.

The San Francisco-based pet project of Oracle CEO Larry Ellison says Senior Explorer will use NIC as its preferred device for Internet connectivity. The ISP specializes in serving customers aged 50 and older.

As part of the agreement, Costa Mesa, Calif.-based Senior Explorer will offer the NIC as part of a complete Internet solution for seniors. For only $29.99 a month (for 36 months) customers get an unlimited connection to the Internet and an easy to use NIC loaded with pre-selected software. The dumbed-down units usually retail for $199.99 without a monitor."
