The pervasive vision of future technologies raises important questions on how people, especially the elderly, will be able to use, trust and maintain privacy. To begin to address such issues, we conducted focus group sessions with elderly participants aged from 65 to 89 years. The groups were shown three Videotaped Activity Scenarios  depicting pervasive or ubiquitous computing applications in three contexts: health, commerce and e-voting. The resultant data was coded in terms of stakeholder, user and system issues. The data is discussed here from the user perspective -- specifically in terms of concerns about trust and privacy.
