Fortune.com - Personal Fortune - Geek Eye for the Luddite Guys.
The experiment: Let loose three tech experts in an average family's home.
OK. Before I read the article, I'd say this family needs a TiVo and a Macintosh.

Doesn't everyone?

OK. Now I read the article. Here's a weird highlight for you:
The geeks start walking him through his house. Larson shows Mike how to hook his camcorder up to the PC and make movies that he can send to his brother in Japan. He explains the difference between "slurping" (video), "ripping" (music), and "shoving" (the camera's media card into the PC media server). Larson tells Mike that when he wants to print a photo, he should simply "connect the squiggly one to that thing-a-ma-doodle." (Larson also refers to the PC media reader as a "front-loading deelie bopper.")
Weird.
