Designing For The Elderly

Quite a long post at Smashing Magazine on the usability and accessibility the elderly (and everyone else with accessibility issues) have surfing the web.
Quote:
If you work in the tech industry, itís easy to forget that older people exist. Most tech workers are really young, so itís easy to see why most technology is designed for young people. But consider this: By 2030, around 19% of people in the US will be over 65. Doesnít sound like a lot? Well it happens to be about the same number of people in the US who own an iPhone today. Which of these two groups do you think Silicon Valley spends more time thinking about?

This seems unfortunate when you consider all of the things technology has to offer older people.
