Also, if I speak with my grand parents they complain about the new phones that are available in this world, like mobile phones and stuff. So complicated etc. Take my cousin with 10 years. She plays with them and has no issues at all... who's wrong?
Don't get me wrong: change isn't appropriate all the time. But not changing / improving / enhancing / removing / etc. means to stand still, which in the end means to fall back because everyone else marches forward. Perhaps an intermediate mode where you get a migration guide, which video tutorials or something would help?
I think a lot of cellphone interfaces are more complicated than they should be, and a lot of users simply accept that because they're good with technology.
On the other hand, all of this is easy to learn and use if you're in the right frame of mind, people who are intimidated by technology just have trouble learning it.
