Why does the older generation often blame the younger generation for being too immersed with technology?

When in fact, it's their generation who created most of the technology? Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are not from our generation. Okay, Zuckerberg is, though, so you can blame us for using too much Facebook.

The older generation ddn't have it. My dad talks about when they finally got cable TV, & it only had around 10 channels.

Because we are too immersed with technology that we forget about the simple things in life. There is more to life, than just checking Facebook every 5 minutes and updating your Twitter about your every single move.

It goes much further back than that. We were building tube computers when I was a boy in high school. PS, that was in the late 1940`s.

Because the fact is, there's always going to be more technology than there was in the previous generation. Admit it: we're going to be saying the same thing to our kids.
