Teach Parents Tech From Google

Website of the Day: TeachParentsTech

Heading home for the holidays can be stressful for a number of reasons, but when you've been designated as your family's tech support person, it can feel like you never really left work at all. Thankfully, you can cut off tech questions at the pass with Google's new fun and informative website. Called TeachParentsTech, it lets you send email "care packages" to your computer illiterate family members. Just select a how-to video from a number of subjects like "how to transfer files between computers," and "how to tell if an email is fake," then personalize your message with names and salutations.

This way, you can let a smarty-pants from Google walk them through how to resize and/or upload photos before you even arrive, so you can relax after Christmas dinner for once.
