Still having trouble explaining video chat to your grandmother? Google's got you covered.

Google's been putting out some pretty decent informational videos over the last couple of years, and yesterday they turned their sights on the hardest targets around: Our grandmothers. Granted, the idea behind this video likely applies to more mothers than grandmothers, it's still a good point that Google's making here -- the generation gap is pretty wide when it comes to technology.

So, aside from making yet another cute video to tout one of their many services, the folks over at Google have made a solid, timely point in bringing up how easy it is to implement visual chat in today's tech-saturated world. If your parents, grandparents, or tech-illiterate brothers and sisters have so much as a webcam and an email Gmail account, then you can give them quality face-time no matter where you are in the world.

Unless, of course, you can walk your grandmother through a Skype installation.
