It's hilarious but also pretty enlightening. I also feel really old now.
Ugh, these videos always make me feel old.
I like these videos, though, because I enjoy watching the behavior of the different teens. It's funny seeing what kind of knowledge they bring to the table beforehand and what they're willing to learn.
I don't miss Windows 95, that's for sure.
I wonder how these kids would survive in the wild with the Wi-Fi turned off.
Kids today aren't given enough credit, they're pretty smart to begin with but they often lack knowledge of context--understandable with the rate of change making it harder to keep up with past information. If you put a 12-13 year old against one from 1930, the kids from today will seem a lot smarter..contrary to what the GOP would have you believe.
I can barely survive without my wi-fi.
It could be a fun reality show. Create a town from the 1990s and drop some teenagers in it. No wifi. No cellphones. Give them some tasks and watch them attempt to accomplish them 90s-style. Make the bastards use a payphone!
They'd probably be upset that they couldn't document the experience with selfies.
Are we done with the youth-bashing yet? That's always way more tiresome than how kids actually behave.
There was a show like this on, but my wife and I only watched one episode. There were something like 4 groups of kids, they had to pick a leader, and make decisions based on challenges, like Survivor. They were dumped into what looked like a TOS set with rudimentary buildings.
Nobody's youth bashing. I'm just kidding around, old man.
It helps when jokes are funny.
Be less grumpy.
I agree about the context thing. '90s kids would probably have found it hard to get along if they were suddenly dropped in the '70s, because they were not exposed to that environment and way of living when growing up. And we would all have trouble getting along if we were transported to Edwardian England, no matter how much Downton Abbey we may have watched.
To this day I still worry about turning my computer off if it doesn't give me permission first.
Or when you have a sense of humour.
Kids today, man. I'll tell ya.
I don't understand why these kids thought that turning the monitor on would turn the computer on, this hasn't changed today on desktop computers.
Windows95 was actually very easy to use, every OS that came after was just an upgrade. Now before win95 things were really tough. I remember having to locate the win.exe file using norton commander to turn windows 3 on.
win.com you mean?
Should have shown them windows me - they'd have really felt sorry for us then!
Having used BASIC, 3.1 and 95, just utterly glad we've moved so far past those awful platforms. They were a pain in the ass when they were new.
