This is a 2011 movie apparently made using a 20-year old script. How else can you explain the fact that every man and his dog has an iPhone, yet they're never used for anything more than sending *texts*. No, not even "chatting". Texts.
And despite the availability of iPhones wherever you look, every time someone wants to look up a website or watch a video they go indoors to switch on a big, old computer.
Oh, and you know how more than half the photos taken in the USA are taken on an iPhone, if Apple's marketing is to be believed? Not in this town. The only photos are being taken by the high school girl using a camera with rolls of film. Which she develops and prints in the high school's lavishly appointed and huge photo lab, before scanning them in to upload them to her website.
Like I say, this script was obviously written 20 years or so ago, and someone at Disney must have come across it stuck to the bottom of the barrel while they were giving it a good scrape. Adding the letter "i" in front of every occurrence of the word "phone" in a script doesn't qualify as an update.
