Hi, just have one small comment this device is of course aimed squarely 
at seniors and veterans I think it is called money. It’s a term that 
has been often used by one of the list members when he and I discussed 
why some things in adaptive technology seem to be pointed at certain 
groups and/or certain situations. Just my two cents worth.

Sincerely Maurice Mines.
