Seriously, for a generation of people who pride themselves on "doing it themselves", I've never seen something turn them into whining, fit throwing babies like technology does.

You'll understand when you're 90 and your great-grandkids are trying to teach you shite.

I would not underestimate old people. They may not do things as fast, or as efficiently, but they can hang right there without the tech. Think about that.

I'm 57 I am NOT A Tech guru... I do have to depend on certain modes of Tech to do my job and such... however I have A Cell phone because I have to have one for my job.... again though I grew up in the 70's where there was no such thing.... now today's generation there are very few who could not live without a cell phone or computer. FACT.

I’m in my 30’s and already feel like technology is quickly outpacing my ability to keep up (or I quit caring about trying to).

Us old people are to busy living out the last of their lives to be concerned with mastering gadgets. Plus, we like to interact with people directly.

I imagine it's very similar to the way young people can't grasp hard work and not having everything handed to them.

If you don't grow up exposed to it, you have trouble understanding the concept.

The older you are, the more difficult it is to learn and grasp new, unfamiliar things. It's always been that way.

Same reason I don’t like shorts up to my thighs. It’s stupid and I’m not used to it

Fair enough.... however you are a punk kid who grew up with this..... I am old fashion..... take it for you want but it is what it is....


Yes I enjoy TD...... it gives me an outlet.... but it's not the end all be all...... it gives me the chance to voice what I think....

But you're an idiot, and no one cares what you think.
