16 Hilarious (And True) Tweets About Technology, #4 Will Make You Feel Like A Dinosaur.
When I was a kid, there was no such thing as an "app." Well actually, there was: buffalo wings at Applebee's. When I look at kids today, I realize that they have an entirely new definition for the word - one that's less wing and more widget.
I also realize that there is an entire world of things that today's kid missed out on. They're not exactly replacing old technology with new, because they weren't even alive when the old technology existed. That being said, these tweets perfectly sum up how I feel about the relationship kids have with technology today: They know so much, and yet, so little.
