Then again every now and then, she calls me with questions I can't answer. "I ordered dog food on Amazon.com and it never came."
Did she order it and it never came? Or did she think she ordered it, but never did?
So I end up logging in to Amazon under her name and I launch a search and rescue operation.
Problem is, she isn't sitting next to me, so no learning has occurred. I can try to explain what I did to fix the situation, but I can tell she is not getting it.
WAIT! She can virtually sit next to me thanks to channel.me.
This is how simple it is:
1. I go to the channel.me website
2. I enter the url for Amazon.com in the space provided.
3. I e-mail my mom, and tell her to join me.
4. Tada! My mom and I are now seeing exactly the same web page, including each other's mouse movements.
Now she can watch me, as I demonstrate how to search her account and find out what happened to that 25 lbs bag of Science Diet.
Using channel.me, I can also:
- Join my college aged daughter as she shops for her Halloween costume (must not pay for something too skanky.)
- Watch a presentation with a colleague in Washington DC.
- Look at summer rentals with my real estate broker.
You try it.
