Valerie Singleton launches PC for the elderly

“The SimplicITy computer has no log in screen and features just
six large-text buttons for users to access basic functions such as
email and web browsing.

“Users also receive video tutorials presented by Singleton,
which come pre-installed on the machine and give a step-by-step
guide to using the different tools.

“SimplicITy is the brainchild of Discount Age – the
money-saving website co-founded by Singleton – and Wessex
Computers. It is aimed to address the fact that only around half of
over-50s have access to a computer and the internet, compared to
over 80 per cent of 29- to 45-year-olds.”
