I hear you - and it more of a pride thing than a technology thing for me.
But I've been a serial technology entrepreneur for 35 years. I wrote code on an Altair Micro Computer using Altair Basic - which was Bill Gates first product. I've been on the bleeding edge of most of the technology revolutions and I love me some good tech.

But my Father in Law just bought a new TV. It's his first "Smart" TV. He called from Florida tonight because he was afraid to plug it in for the first time :-). The Instructions said that it would start configuring itself when turned on for the first time and that made him nervous.

I totally understand....the crazy thing is (all ages) you would be suprise how many men do not know how to back-up a trailer with no technology. Growing up my dad taught me use the mirrors and not turn around and look out the back window. The back window will not always be there, but your mirrors will. There are less and less good old boys. With times getting harder you are getting more city folk buying campers and they have never backed up a trailer in their life. Ford is targeting these people with this technology to help them feel more comfortable.
