Vivek commented on THE HALF-CENTURY

I had very similar thoughts! I was even thinking about Incubators & co-working spaces for people above 50. It would be really interesting to see the hobbies they would want to convert into a business or the problems they would like to solve at 50 years of age.

Vivek commented on Make more or Cash Out?

He'll let the other partners run it (its just a small business). The yoga camp is where he goes for an hour every morning. I don't think my dad will be doing any form of consultancy. 

I think he has planned his retirement really well financially. He has earned enough, will be getting enough pension, so he is looking forward to having a relaxed life from now

Vivek commented on The Generation Tech Forgot

I believe the attitude towards tech is drastically different between youngsters & 50+ folks. For e.g. while I do a lot of exploration & Discovery on mobile; my parents do very few & specific activities everyday. When we bought a tablet for them recently, I genuinely felt that device experience (consisting of apps , lockscreen , audio & more) should have been more curated. 
UI is a part of the puzzle & should not be looked as the primary problem I feel.
