What is sad about kids today is they can't seem to walk through a parking lot or a store without having to be "connected". Instead of being in the here and now they're off in cyberland.

Which also adds to a lack of social skills and manners.

I thought I had died and gone to heaven when our high school put in typewriters that had "auto correct---you could backspace up to 20 characters to fix a mistake . Then we discovered erasable typing paper

When I got to college--OMG an Apple II computer....but no spell check.

Kids have it so easy today

Yeah but who really cares to be disconnected in the store?
Grocery stores are the most miserable places to go, long lines, people's whiny kids, the annoying beeping of the scanners.
It's much better to "connect" and ignore all that crap.
