New trend of modern electronics among elder people

As we observe the ever-increasing use of modern electronics such as iPhones, iPads and Tablets, all devices most commonly used by younger generations, we are starting to see the older crowd getting on the electronic bandwagon as many now use such technologies for entertainment purposes.

Mr. Pich Phea Nira, 51, said he uses an iPhone for communication as well as entertainment during spats of boredom or free time. “My children taught me how to use it and I think that it really has a lot of benefits,” he said.

Phea Nira said that he entertains himself and often quells his boredom by using his mobile device.

“‘My children have some old and classical music that I like to listen to. So I can listen to it when I have free time. Also, I can use it to play around on Facebook with my children who live abroad,” he said.

Phea Nira is able to get local news and information too. “I recorded some of the news website as well as some radio news websites also, then every morning I can check them and be up to date with the news,” he said.

Moreover, Phea Nira also can savour family in his iPhone.

“I take photos of my children and my family every time we hang out somewhere together. Then when I get bored or sentimental, I just go through all the photos so I can remember those times,” he said. PheaNira said once he knows how to use modern electronic devices, he has access to many advantages and uses the devices on the daily.
