Technology is not just meant to spoil millennials, but also make life easier for the older members of our community. For example, this 104 year old man rediscovered the pleasure of reading Connecticut Post Local News thanks to tablets.

His name is Antonio Gaiotto and it’s his 104th birth day today. His grandsons gave him the tablet, that replaced a fastidious work of having to use a magnifying glass and a paper journal. Now he can zoom in and read the latest news, from all over the world. Antonio’s favourite news sections are politics, international news, stock market and sports. Reading newspaper makes you well informed. It enables you to take part in every discussion pertaining to the world’s current events. Reading newspapers will improve your knowledge in general and it will be easy for you to relate to other people who often talks about current events and politics.

The elderly citizen hasn’t been fortunate, having lost an eye during a work accident. Sadly, over the last years, the other eye had some problems, so he had to give up reading. Antonio was a prisoner in Germany during World War II and was forced to work in agriculture. Even then found the time to sneak some newspapers and read them. When looking to stay on top of the latest news, start by checking this post about Jimmy John Shark.

I can’t exactly make out the tablet that Antonio is using, but from what I can see it’s most likely a Samsung Galaxy Tab model.  We wish him many years of continued use of that tablet and good health.
