    Hello.

    Is it OK for old people (elders like retired people) use iPhones for old
    fashion phone communications, Internet, pictures, etc. and easy to use
    (computer newbies)? I assume iOS can customize visual (bigger DPIs) and
    stuff?

    Thank you in advance. :)

    Maybe I just don't understand your question because of course it's ok
    for anyone to use an iPhone for in all those instances.

    In the last episode of <>,
    No, once people are retired and therefore considered "old", it is
    socially and morally inexcusable to allow them to use iPhones.
    The DPI (dots per inch) is a physical description of a screen, based on
    decisions made before manufacturing, and literally cannot physically be
    changed. However, you can set iOS to display everything in a larger size
    for ease of use, so iOS makes for a fairly ideal solution here.

    You asked this exact same question about the iPad a few days ago. The
    iPhone is no different - it's simply a small iPad with added cellular
    phone functions.

    Those geriatrics long past their useby date are not allowed to
    use the new fangled toys, only kids are allowed to use those.
    And quite decent accessibility settings too.
    Stop that smirking.

    He obviously means how useable they are likely to find them.

    Which is more a function of the user's intelligence, aptitude,
    interests, motivational patterns, and personality, etc., rather than
    than age...

    "Is it OK?" doesn't say that. Then the abrupt ending of the
    sentence...."and easy to use (computer ewbies"?)... is left hanging.

    Then, how old is old?

    Not really when you consider that many do have deteriorating
    vision as they get older and need to be able to have it use
    bigger fonts and more contrast on the display.

    Yes, he didn't phrase the question very well.
    Its obvious to most what he was asking.
    He elaborated on that with the bit in brackets.

    Again, how old is old? Deteriorating vision because of age usually
    happens to the much older. I would say mid-eighties or so. Aldo Raine
    has the right idea.

    I never have any trouble understanding what he means.
    More just the way he does things.

    Again, he spelt that out in the bit in brackets.
    Still included in the bit in brackets.
    You'd be wrong. I know plenty who have vision
    problems well before that in the sense that the
    bigger fonts and more contrast is useful.
    Not on the question of whether the iphone is
    trivially configurable in the settings for those
    who do have less than 20/20 vision and who
    want to be able to see the screen better.

    There are no brackets. Are you referring to parentheses?
    You mean by saying "elders like retired people"? Ridiculous. They
    aren't necessarily the same. All retired people aren't elders and
    vice-versa.
    No I wouldn't be wrong. Because of age was the qualification made.
    That was nowhere near the issue. The issue is that it was a stupid
    question and very ill defined. I know that you live to argue, but
    find another topic.

    Aldo Raine nailed it.

    Then you have a real eyesight problem yourself.
    Nope, brackets.
    You quite sure you aren't one of those
    rocket scientist terminal fuckwits ?
    Its one way of stating who he is talking about.
    You quite sure you aren't one of those
    rocket scientist terminal fuckwits ?
    Nope. There for all to see.
    Corse you are, just plain wrong.
    Even sillier than you usually manage.
    Wrong, as always. That's clearly what Ant was talking about.
    Wrong, as always.
    Wrong, as always.
    Corse you never ever do anything like that, eh ?
    Go and **** yourself.
    Wrong, as always.

    Here's his post in it's entirety. Show a bracket or for once in your
    miserable life admit that you're bullshitting.

    "Is it OK for old people (elders like retired people) use iPhones for
    old
    fashion phone communications, Internet, pictures, etc. and easy to use
    (computer newbies)? I assume iOS can customize visual (bigger DPIs)
    and stuff?"
    Translated: I have no answer for facts.
    LOL. Mr. Know-It-All blabbers on, as usual.
    I'd rather **** with your concrete brain.
    Now let's have your usual idiotic and poor English line when it's been
    proven that you're full of shit. You know....

    "the puerile shit that always
    pours from the back of it when its got
    done like a fucking dinner, as it always is."

    ROTFLMAO at this forum's laughing stock. Rod Speed.

    One on either side of the phrase (elders like retired people), cretin.
    Nothing to admit, fool.
    You wouldn't know what a real fact was
    if it bit you on your lard arse, fuckwit.
    Corse you never ever do anything like that, eh ?
    Just another of your pathetic little drug crazed delusions.

    QED. You don't know a bracket from a parenthesis.
    You really are stupid.
    Not from the laughing stock...Rod Speed.

    Only the pathetically anal insist that those can only be called parentheses.
    You are actually stupid enough to think the name matters.

    You need more than bifocals when the eyes deteriorate badly enough.
