Uh oh! Zetty wants a smart phone.
Play • 26 min

Zetty throws J Smiles off with a request for a cell phone. What seems like a simple ask turns into a quest for the holy grail.  For Zetty, J soon realizes it is a dignity issue too.

J Smiles takes listeners on a rollercoaster journey of communication product assessments. She points out design features created to improve the lives of  seniors. Question is does J agree. Will any of the items help a dementia/ALZ sufferer like Zetty?

J Smiles leans into her product design and engineering expertise to dive deep into the market --- putting Zetty first, she finds a solution in the oddest place.
