joke's on you kids, FTP servers are the new WWW!
This one gets depressing around 5:20 and then again around 6:20, but their "Kids React to Old Computers" is even worse. None of the dumb kids can even figure out how to turn a computer on.
At this rate, if a device doesn't load at the touch of a button and take kids directly to Facebook, they won't know how to operate it. It's sad to think that, as our technology becomes simpler and more convenient from the end-user's perspective, the average youth seems to be developing fewer and fewer technological survival skills.
I'm pretty sure kids on average are more knowledgable now than my generation was but at least when we didn't know stupid fairly basic shit we had an excuse for it.
I've been out of school since 2004 (wikipedia was around but just barely.. still in the "America was founded by Mr. T and Chuck Norris in 1983" infancy.. how do teachers handle the fact that a majority of students' reports could be done with a simple wikipedia search now that the big articles are monitored carefully for errors and such? I mean, cutting and pasting would be obvious cheating, but true facts are true facts.
competent teachers wouldn't allow citing Wikipedia directly as a source when I was in school and at the level where we did research essays.

What really surprises me is that for a generation born with the internet and who supposedly knows everything about it you meet a disturbingly high number of kids and teens who have no clue as to how Facebook's privacy settings work (yes I know kids now don't even use FB anymore, but when they did...) or who when they need to figure something out will post an embarrassingly stupid question on twitter (OMG GUYS HAD DID THE TITANIC REALLY EXIST AND SINK IRL?!?) rather than doing a google or wikipedia search.

I cannot wait for the day my holoputer allows me to reach through the screen and punch that dork in the face.
Also, fuck you other guy, Egypt is AWESOME. If you're not looking up Egypt, you're basically garbage.

I was born in 1982 so I was used to seeing more color TVs than black and white ones, and VHS was pretty common, but my dad was telling me about his grandpa who had (I think) the first TV set in LaCrosse Wisconsin, and had to take his antenna down because he interfered with low-flying airplanes. Just for one channel that barely came in from Minnesota on a 6'' screen surrounded by 5x5 foot tubing.
Not sure if the entire story is true, but it wasn't funny: I was fascinated.
App-cattle laughs obliviously at the history of their slave pens.
What a weird description, none of these people look 30.
I think the definition of Millennial goes into the early 2000s, so someone as young as 13 could technically be one. But yeah, I normally associate the word with people in their 20s or early 30s.
so why would someone born in the 80s be a millennial? that doesn't make any sense.
I don't know why I did that.
My understanding of millennial is someone who became an adult after 2000 but was born before then.
