Default The problem with the takeover of the mobile scene.

This includes everything from mobile gaming to the whole concept of fast downloads to text messaging.

Instant gratification.

The new generation (you, me, you sister, your turtle) are products of society and how society acts in the present. It's natural that you will act the way you do as a direct result of being around certain people with the same ideology as you and the same behavior.

So now we're being brought up in an environment with computers and whatever the hell else we have where we can have whatever we want in a matter of minutes (if that). The problem with THIS is a few things:

1) Nobody knows how to do anything anymore: If you told a kid to fix his bike or skateboard (if they even use it ) they wouldn't know how to. Even if their wheel just needed have some air pumped into it. And if their trucks were too loose, they wouldn't even know what trucks are.

2) Everyone is absorbed in their phones: I feel like with the rise of technology, people are definitely taking advantage of it in ways they should. I feel like the idea of text messaging quickly turned into something bad. Now you have people in the same room texting each other and nobody is talking. Interaction with human beings is something that everyone is going to need at one point or another. Social media is overtaking face-to-face interaction.

3) It breeds a spoiled generation: Since everyone is now grown up and their parents gave them their crappy iPhones, they've been living in a screen for their entire lives and don't know any other way than instant gratification. They're spoiled and lazy.

So yes, in a way, the economy might be thriving now on this kind of shit, but what about in 50 years when your parents and grandparents are all dead and you have no choice but to try to work yourself, but don't know what to do? Sure, you could sell iPhones since that's the only thing you know about. What happens when there's nobody smart enough to build that iPhone? Factories need workers, and nobody is willing to learn now because they're too absorbed in Angry Birds or Temple Run to learn the inner workings of what they're using.

And nobody cares.
We're doomed.

I feel like I barely missed this trend. Either that or I just got raised right.

This isn't trending. And none of us missed it. Just think about it. You guys don't like that the forum link was moved over a few inches and you're demanding that it be changed. We're all like this. This is the way society is now.

I probably would have been shot if I said some of the things I said to people today about 200 years ago.

I never said that it should be changed. I just questioned why it was done. (You guys implying me and others.)

Everything you said is certainly true to an extent, but hardly applicable to everyone.

To your statement #1 I can fix my bike, didn't know how at first just kept tweaking at it till I figured it out and I use it and I've seen people fix up their bikes and skateboards. But yea I can see how kids who are like 10 right now who have been on technology the whole time wouldn't be able to.

Yea I agree with 2 and 3, I hate it when someone is texting someone but the person is like a 3min walk away. Also I can see how it can make people lazy.
