  10. 10. “Technologists, designers and marketers must refocus to seize this crucial opportunity. They have created and sold products targeted explicitly at an already-saturated market of financially poor “digital natives” in Generations X and Y. This emphasis on the young is unsurprising, since many technologists are themselves part of these younger age groups. However, it is a very serious mistake, because it neglects the most promising technology market demographic of all: the affluent, increasingly technologically sophisticated older generation we are calling the ‘silver surfers’.” Gartner.
