AARP is not with the times -- is this a surprise?
I just turned 50 years old, and tried to apply to AARP. Twice, using my Mac Firefox and Safari browser. Turns out that the good old AARP is still stuck in the days of accepting only folks using Internet Explorer on a PC. I finally realized this, applied using IE on a PC (using VMWare on my Mac, a really cool solution to the whole Mac/PC thing), and successfully applied. But now I seriously doubt that AARP is going to have much benefit for someone like me, if they can't even get their website together to allow folks with Macs to apply for membership without a huge hassle.
