Chris, face it - you're getting older. This phenomenon started years ago in the video game market, and then exploded with the advent of smartphones. "UX" designers are creating modes of interaction that 'tweens and twentysomethings seem to inherently understand from prior exposure, but anyone older hasn't a clue how to use. The move toward the 'modern' UI, with flat monochrome graphics and little or no guiding text, is symptomatic. A lot of smartphone apps require dexterity that older folks can't achieve, due to small icons and close positioning. I've even seen desktop apps that call for triple-clicks WTF | :WTF: to perform certain actions.

The end result will be a divide between those that can speak to the machines, and those that cannot. Those that cannot, the aged and the poor, will therefore not be full participants in the society being created.
