Further and further behind

Those of us who are middle-aged know only too well the challenges that our parents face in dealing with modern "conveniences" like the VCR and computers -- perhaps it's inevitable that our children will find us hopeless too, but I like to think that we have a bit of an edge in being Internet savvy, even if some of our knowledge is wasted in the realms of ftp and html, rather than texting and chat.

Anyway, was much amused that it was my mother who sent me to this video depicting the dread that she and many like her feel in anticipating the forced switch to digital cable in another few months . . . (The subheader of the page cracks me up.)
