According to a recent Simmons Market Research Study, the nation's 78 million baby boomers are being overwhelmed by an avalanche of increasingly intimidating high-tech gadgets. And, with more and more of them becoming empty-nesters as they age, the youngest of whom turned 44 this year, they can no longer rely on their tech-savvy Gen X or Y children for help.
