I agree and throw the X-Box types in there too.I think the issue is that someone raised on phones/tablets has been shown an ecosystem where every application only has visibility to its own file store. Such a person could download something to a phone to $random_download_directory, then open an application, not see their files, and not know what to do.
Your last bullet is correct. Companies are absolutely looking at your social media before they hire you. People have lost their jobs over stupid tweets.In watching and comparing some older friends of ours (wife and I are nearing 50 ourselves) - we've noticed some key differences.
The first set always bitches about the world going to pot, wah wah, kids can't even read analog clocks anymore... etc.
The second set partially embraces the new - appreciates the good parts, doesn't worry about not understanding every change.
It's not their world anymore. They get it, they roll with it.
Every generation of olds thinks it's all going to hell -
It's all good...
- Cars? witchcraft!
- Tractors? heck, no, horses will be used forever!
- Rock & Roll? Ah, it's poisoning the minds of the youth!
- Keep that computer off my desk, it's just a fad
- Social media? oh, no, you'll be judged on what you posted as a teen in a job interview when you're 40!!
(except the wife's Honda touch-screen UI... argggg)
My Sympathies. Its my fear as well as my Daughter is starting college this year.Yup. I find it very disturbing. But not as disturbing as my 18 year old daughter thinking she's an "ADULT". Therefore, she knows EVERYTHING!! She thinks she can party every single day and still succeed at University. Can you say EPIC FAIL?! First semester, all Fs. What a waste!! I'm told she didn't attend a single class.
