PS-having run hundreds of focus groups over the years, I can tell you that most people instinctively reject the new or anything they are unfamiliar with, but often, over time ( and observing other people accepting the idea) change their minds.  This is particularly true of older people.

I was in focus groups that roundly rejected smart phone aps when the idea was first introduced, saying they just wanted a phone.  Needless to say, most people have now come to a very different conclusion.
