Smart Phones for Dummies

It's hilarious how some people think using a smart phone is some sort of skill.  They have no idea what makes the thing actually work... they just TOUCH it.  The user interface is designed so that nearly ANYONE can figure it out.  

These things are basically computers for people with learning disabilities.  See what you want?  Point and stab it with your index finger.

Everyone just clicks 'ACCEPT' on user agreements, too.  I tried reading them.  It's no use.  Even if you read enough to find the bad stuff, your only recourse is to not use the app.

I've got a lot of respect for people who put smartphones down, or just get a simple phone for making calls or texting.  Too many people do everything on their phone...  Things that should be done on computers with better security, or in person.  It's really a wonder there isn't more fraud.  The crooks are probably just too inundated with data.
