Get ready for this:

Mediacorp (Singapore) will be screening its first ever TV series with the focus on the 50+. Comprising 13 episodes, "Silver Lining" will premiere this August 10 at 8.30pm. A dramedy, the series give viewers a peek at life in the golden years as experienced by two grandfathers and their neighbours. Click here to read more.

Another piece of good news to share. The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has announced two new schemes to increase IT training and spur PC ownership among the older segment of the population.

The first, called Silver Gen PC Specials, will offer desktops, notebooks and netbooks to senior citizens at discounted prices. However, purchases must be from IDA-appointed PC vendors.

The second, the Silver PC Incentive Programme, will give a further $100 off to the first 8,000 eligible citizens who complete 30 hours of IT training.

With these incentives kicking off today, senior citizens in Singapore have little excuse not to pick up some pc skills. They can start a home-based online business, embark on lifelong learning, or extend their network of friends online.

With their own pc, a whole new world is theirs to discover and explore.
