The generation gap has always existed – children always grow up in different worlds than their parents. It’s not hyperbole to say that that has never been truer than now, with the staggering pace of technological advance today. People who grew up in a time before personal computers are having children who will never know a world without computers that can fit into their pockets. One day, we’ll tell our kids of the time before the Internet, and they won’t believe us or be able to wrap their minds around the concept.
I’m not exactly sure why kids’ fingerprints are so much more sticky and dirty than everyone else’s, but they are. That combined with smartphones makes for lots of unhappy parents and nasty looking screens.
