I have noticed a gap in the market and have decided to write a book for people aged 45+ guiding them through phones, computers, gadgets etc. Many people have asked about what you can do on the internet so it is to show people what they can do as well as how they can do it. Please can people suggest names for this and if they have expertise in any of these areas and are good at writing and then can you comment below and I can follow these up. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

I'm supposed to help my grandmother learn how to use the computer, varying from how to turn it on to how to check her email. I don't know if there are specific things that you've already decided to include, but I can help with some of the basics, and my writing ability tends to be considered fairly high by some people. If nothing else, I can help edit... But I think this is a great project idea, and would greatly enjoy helping in some way.

Why is everything getting smaller, although I stopped growing long ago?

I'm not entirely sure about a title, but i have a CINS 101 Certification (basics in computer hardware and software) I can give troubleshooting tips for hardware and software, and how to work with several of the big Operating Systems out there.
I'm also pretty good with english and grammer, if u ever want an editor of sorts.

Over the Hill Online
Online and Over the Hill

Steam Engine People In A Quantum Physics World (a bit of a mouthful, but maybe something similar in theme might be good)

Pluggers In Toyland (obviously Babes In Toyland -- I'm not sure if the term pluggers is well known enough for the book title)

From Gas-Power to Google, learning the ropes in a new age
Oh the Things You'll Know! (from the Dr. Seuss title Oh the Places You'll Go)

Let Me At 'Em! Getting the most from new-world gadgets.
Picking Up Steam - learning to use new technologies

Features For Fogeys! or Fun For Fogeys! -- wold probably need a subtitle
Fogeycraft (like "witchcraft", etc.)

These last few are my personal favorites

Smart Phones For Donna Reed - a technology guide for an older generation

Okay that's it from me for the moment... all the brainstorming I've got right now. :D
