This picture represents the polar opposite of the person in this story.

George Williams owns two computers. He also has an iPhone, and now the new BlackBerry Playbook. He’s a tech savvy guy and it turns out he’s turning 91 years old. “It’s always been a challenge to me,” he says of his fondness for buying the latest gadgets and sitting down with the owner’s manuals to figure them out.

Williams comes from Moncton and was born in Canada. It must be interesting from someone of his age, having lived through World War II and seen the incredible technology advancements we’ve made in the past 70 years. Everything from the Atomic Bomb to the Internet has been invented in his time and the smartphone era is in some ways an equally big technology shift. There is a lot of potential in everyone carrying around a computer in their pocket, and we’ve just scratched the surface of what’s possible.

And how cool would it be to have him as a grandfather? While most of us struggle to get our grandparents to check out photos of the kids online, gramps over here is asking you to upload a 1080p copy of Inception in a torrent file and “quit leeching”.
