This is an important article, but more attention to detail is needed. The first smartphone made its debut in 1992 as the Simon Personal Communicator, which was not even called that until 1994. As far as widespread adoption of the smartphone, that would be the Blackberry in the mid ’00s. Smartphones are not 30 years old, as asserted this article. This is an especially important point because they have *practically* been in our (and seniors’) lives for only around a decade or so. Not 30. Thus, there is an even bigger divide between seniors and smartphones (and, honestly, many non-seniors to include Generation Xers and older Millennials) due to smartphones’ realtively new existence and rapid evolution in computing power.
