Customers With Disabilities


Before I married, I lived in an apartment.  Nestled by tall trees, and surrounded by people chiefly in their 20s and 30s, I liked my bachelor pad.  Due to the lack of gadgets and Internet-connected devices in the early ‘90s, however, my free time was spent at the local golf course, hanging out at the pool or relaxing on the patio.  But the thing I most remember from my apartment days was watching the infamous police chase with O.J. Simpson.  As a newshound, I was riveted.


Rewind 20 years and the contrast looms large.  As a 20-something, I had no high def TV.  In fact, I watched the O.J. drama unfold on my modest 19-inch TV and prayed my spotty cable TV service wouldn’t croak.  My remote control was dumb.  I had no high speed Internet connection to stream video content or zip emails to friends.  I didn’t own a cell phone; I couldn’t post comments about the slow white Bronco to Facebook; and the only things that tweeted back then were the birds in nearby oaks.


Fortunately, today’s apartment and condo dwellers have a lot more going for them when it comes to enjoying technologies’ riches.  Too often, however, people think you have to live in a single family home to get the best in broadband and entertainment services -- not so.
