There simply isn't big generation left that is so old they don't want to use computers. Not in the west.
No, but there are a great deal of people from certain generations that won't touch them. Case in point, most of my relatives (parents, aunts, uncles). My dad, for example, will use a Windows PC when forced to but absolutely hates the things. In contrast, he loves his Android smartphone. It's hard to believe this trend until you've actually seen it, but there it is, and it has nothing at all to do with a generation gap.
