Re: Consumers Struggle with New Technology
Yeah and I think it's great that they have technology at their fingertips. It could be so useful. However, I don't know if they're using it in that way.

Re: Consumers Struggle with New Technology
I agree.

A lot of the older generations don't even know how to use the simpliest devices. Not saying all are like that, but the majority. Not because of their intelligence level, but becaue they never had it growing up like the young people today had.

Consumers Struggle with New Technology
Consumers will continue to struggle with new technology for many reasons some such as:
  • age
  • gender
  • locale
  • computer/internet skill level
  • interest in technology vs. lack of interest
  • learning curve
  • economic disaparity
  • educational differences/biases based on race, income, locale
  • decreased attention span

If companies want to gain new customers and retain customers other than millennials they will have to provide training on new technologies (products and services) to customers (free of charge) and answers technical support questions (free of charge).

These statistics are alarming since over 90% of the country has access to the internet. Statistics for countries will less access will be even higher. There is a global gap that is widening regarding the use of technology and access to the internet. Companies, vendors, suppliers and customers will have to work together to close the gap and to ensure everyone who wants it, is able to access at least basic technology products and services including the internet.

Re: Digital Divide
Only the Paranoid Survive--the great Andy Grove reminded us of it all--and look at just in the media space what's going on (With the demise of Gawker, NYTimes now being discontinued by the NY Times) etc.     So, the current Giants have to be watchful...wont' they?

Re: Digital Divide
@mpuraryan true, I was just discussing this with someone. Some of the hot tech companies of the last century don't even exist in their original forms now. If theyexist at all, they are often submerged in the company that acquired them.

Re: Digital Divide
For sure M'aam...and that's how the "leading lights" hope to continue to razzle and dazzle us--but what is "hot now" won't be as hot tomorrow.    Look at IBM & MSFT :)

Re: Finding Telenor
A staggering amount of the World--50%--is yet to have basic access yet alone have access to a simple computer--hence that's why I continue to be fascinated by the efforts by the likes of Keepod (that is now selling its' computers for $ 7) is what we have to look forward to.
