We are not a patient people.

    Ah yes, my beloved infographics, there you are! I missed you!

    25% of people ONLY browse the internet on their phone?! Really? wow!

    I'm bored

    Takes too long to boot up a computer. :D

    Sorry I lost interest after I read I'm +Gregg Sakauye

    What is this thing you speak of "boot up"? Aren't computers just always on?

  7. March 19, 2012 at 10:57

    Well they are in my house +Becky Cox. But I hear tell of the power button.

  8. March 19, 2012 at 10:58

    Ahhh, the legendary power button. It's only real use is to remind the darn computer who's in control, not matter what it thinks.

  9. March 19, 2012 at 10:59

    power button??? Is that like the refresh button???

  10. March 19, 2012 at 11:00

    No.. it turns the machine off! nods head enthusiastically

    And then it doesn't work any more until you turn it on again!

    gasp the horror!!!

    Who is the Google generation? Are we?

  14. March 19, 2012 at 11:12

    Hmm. technically I'm too old aren't I? I was born in 1972. I don't think I get to claim to be the generation of something that didn't arrive until 25 years later

  15. March 19, 2012 at 11:14

    Where I worked at before…people were expecting service like I was a computer some times.

  16. March 19, 2012 at 11:14

    Well then that puts me out of the running too, having arrived in 1969. So, if we are not the Google generation, who is? My boy? He's 14 and is still needing instruction on how to find answers to questions using Google….

  17. March 19, 2012 at 11:16

    My kids know to use google already (they're 7). Maybe it's them?

    They certainly have no damn patience what so ever. :D

  18. March 19, 2012 at 11:17

    Does this mean the infographic is based on % of all 7 year olds in the US? Or that it is probably quite a dodgy infographic? ;-)

  19. March 19, 2012 at 11:18

    I remember the days I used the dewy decimal system. Who else does?

  20. March 19, 2012 at 11:19

    Dewy decimal system +Jennifer Isaacs ?

  21. March 19, 2012 at 11:20

    Perhaps they are trying to refer to the Google generation as in this decade or something referring more to people currently alive, than it is to specific people born in said year-year timeslot?

  22. March 19, 2012 at 11:21

    Soooo glad I don't have to rely on Dewy anymore!

    Now the libraries use computers to do all the searching.

  24. March 19, 2012 at 11:23

    It's an infographic. Of course it's dodgy +Catherine Maguire.

    Real stats don't come with pretty pictures. :D

  25. March 19, 2012 at 11:25

    ohhh headache inducing +Jennifer Isaacs I'm in need of a filing system, my desk can't take the load anymore…

  26. March 19, 2012 at 11:26

    Can you imagine the days when mail was traveled by horse only? I am thankful I don't have to wait that long to learn or know something.

  27. March 19, 2012 at 11:29

    Sometimes I'd like to give it a try +Jennifer Isaacs
