Losing our edge

There's nothing like a bunch of clearly quite intelligent children baffled by Walkmans (and indeed cassettes) to remind you of your steadily advancing years. "I feel bad for the people who lived in the 90s, I really do", says one. I wonder how bad she feels for someone who not only lived in the 90s, but also the 80s and 70s, and who has a large number of beloved albums only in cassette form...

Still, now these kids know how I feel when confronted by much modern technology. Given we're the adults and we're in charge, why are we developing things that make us look stupid?
