ElderGadget's Top 10 Boomer & Senior Friendly Tech Gadget Gifts for 2010

Leading trusted technology review and news site geared toward the dynamic senior citizens and aging boomers, ElderGadget.com releases the Top Ten technology gifts for the 2010 holiday season.
Los Angeles, CA (12/7/10) - ElderGadget.com a leading, trusted technology review and news site geared toward the dynamic aging boomer and senior, has released their top ten tech gadget gifts for the 2010 holiday season.

ElderGadget.com Seal of Approval Logo
ElderGadget Seal of Approval
The list was compiled by assessing each product based on two fundamental aspects.

First the ElderGadget.com team tested each product with the criteria for the ElderGadget Seal of Approval which is determines if it is: Easy to See. Easy to Hear. Easy to Use. Easy to Understand.

Second, does the product help the individual maintain their competitive edge. ElderGadget.com is founded on the mandate of competitive functional aging. In essence, an individual is assessed based on their ability to successfully compete at whatever they do, whatever age they are. Is a lawyer less effective because he is 75? Quite to the contrary, however a gymnast most likely can not compete after the age of 18, nor could a professional basketball player play after the age of 37 or 38.

ElderGadget founder Elie Gindi, a frequent "elder expert" guest to television shows nationwide and himself a boomer is redefining our understanding of what the words "boomer" and "senior" really are. The mandate at ElderGadget.com is to assess individuals by what they can do and how competitive they are in the marketplace, not by the age printed on their birth-certificate.

"I wouldn't give Gene Simmons (KISS) a remote control with massive keys, but he's 61 - so where does that leave us but fundamentally resetting our thinking. Certainly some people may prefer bigger keys, or something a little louder but today's aging boomer and senior is active, dynamic and they certainly want to be cool."

Here are the cream of the crop in digital goodies that everyone is going to want! Get your browser warmed up, let's do some shopping.
