Post Grankids live far away?

Hi - My name's Will and I'm a product manager at a startup called <snip>

We've been thinking about how to make it easier for families who live far apart to stay in touch. Many of us can't travel as much as we'd like, and existing communication tools can present technical and scheduling difficulties.

We think we have a solution, and are looking for families to participate in a test. If accepted, you would receive a physical device running test software. There is no compensation or cost. We'd like testers to give it a shot for at least 6 weeks.

If interested, simply email me at<snip> to get started.

Thank you!

What's the matter with the old fashioned telephone? Surely grandparents who are too old to do skype remember how to dial a number.

Re: Grankids live far away?

Nice idea. However, there are plenty of opportunities available for families to stay in contact already.

Sorry, I'm just not interested.

Good luck on your idea. Maybe you could advertise it on fb or something like that.

or...

People could move closer to their grandkids. Or even have the in-laws move in with them. Parents would love that. All that family closeness. Gosh... I can feel the chills running up my spine now.
