Tim Berners-Lee, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Ray Ozzie and Eric Schmidt were all born in 1955.
I don't think they will be reading a couple of new books by one Jim Gatenby, "especially written for the over-50s". Excuse me dude, the Internet was written BY the over-fifties.

But at the least the over-fifties can read books, innit? I expect Jim will be deluged with letters from fans pointing out the grammatical error on page 17.
Finally, here are some elderly people getting excited about Vista (via Seth Godin).
