Dear readers,

Over the last couple of decades, smartphones have grown in popularity from being rare luxuries to something that the vast majority of adults (and some kids, too!) own. These magical little devices have changed the way we live day-to-day life. Gone are the days of booting up your computer to Google something or shoot off an email to a friend. Now, it’s as if the entire world is at your fingertips in an instant.

These days, most people have a pretty good understanding of how smartphones work. Heck, they pretty much run themselves! But we’ve reached deep into the Not Always Right archives to procure fourteen stories from over a decade ago when dinosaurs roamed the land and struggled to navigate those new-fangled smartphones. Enjoy this trip down memory lane!
