This image says it all... Does Vodafone think there are no 40 - 50 year olds in New Zealand? I can't check the box if it's not there!


That's when I was updating my profile online...

For those who didn't see The Perfect Age last week, each age group was required to set up a laptop with a wireless modem and use it to book an air ticket to Brisbane. Unfortunately, the 'baby boomer' group had huge difficulties, so Vodafone have obviously decided that they're not worth bothering with!

Alasta, I think you will find out "Baby Boomers" are the people at the end of the 50s entering their 60s now. I can hardly classify as a baby boomer.

According to wikipedia:

A baby boomer is someone who was born during the period of increased birth rates when economic prosperity rose in many countries following World War II. In the United States, the term is iconic and more properly capitalized as Baby Boomers and commonly applied to people with birth years from the span 1946 to 1964, which may comprise more than one generation.


So I think I escape this label by about 3 years...

I identify with Generation X, though I would be at the latter end of the range (Gen x "ended" '75-'77 or so).
