Conclusion
DIGITAL DIVIDE FUTURE IMPLICATIONS

The potential for changing the dynamic is as
great as it is for the technology. The segments
that do not have computers or Internet access
represent potential for market expansion. The
seniors entering retirement in the future will be
increasingly more computer literate as they exit
the workforce.
