Thankfully this comic wasn’t inspired by my mom getting an Android phone, but my heart goes out to my good friend A.M. His mom recently got an Android phone after her 7 year old Nokia phone died. The guy at Radio Shack sold her on the Motorola Cliq citing that “All phones will be like this soon.”

If I were a cell phone salesman and I saw an older person who was clearly not tech savvy come into my store I’d like to think that I would have the foresight to get them a phone easiest for them to use that would put a bare minimum of stress on their young offspring that would inevitably be tasked with providing tech support if I were cruel enough to give them a mini computer for a phone. Seriously, you don’t give a tech unsavvy person a device with a simple purpose which has an infinite number of buttons.
