As at all times, any ‘tech’ for Child Boomers is medical tech.  I’ve written concerning the silliness and shortsightedness of this advert nauseum:

There are a dozen extra posts. I’ll spare you.

Again to the start – the pull quote from my 2005 e-book:

“It will likely be the Child Boomers who would be the first to choose and select, to disregard or be seduced by modern know-how advertising and marketing. There’s a easy cause for this. We’ve got the cash to purchase these items. Specialists say we’ll proceed to have the cash for not less than the subsequent twenty years. Write us off at your individual peril.”

I’ll go away you with this…
