Yesterday, Google launched TeachParentsTech.org, a little spin-off web site that features 50 how-to videos, all designed to answer your parents' basic tech questions. Your father wants to know how to share a big file? Your mother is trying to figure out how to bookmark a web page? Simply head to TeachParentsTech.org, find the appropriate how-to video, send it via email, then free up time to teach yourself more heavy-duty tech.
Many of these videos showcase Google software. A coincidence? Hardly. Think of this as soft Google marketing to the Boomers.
