If Sen. John McCain is really serious about becoming a Web-savvy citizen, perhaps Kathryn Robinson can help. Robinson is now 106 that's 35 years older than McCain and she began using the Internet at 98, at the Barclay Friends home in West Chester, Pa., where she lives.

The popular search engine Google announced plans Friday to launch a new site, TheGoogle.com, to appeal to older adults not able to navigate the original website's single text field and two clearly marked buttons. ...
