    Im embarrased to say it,because I try to keep abreast of technology,But had an iphone for a year,and an ipod touch for nearly 2 years-the other night was just saying to my daughter that the thing I found most frustrating was going from one app screen to the other using the tiny dots at the bottom of the screen-she then leaned across and swiped her finger on the whole screen and moved it to the next one-I simply cannot believe I had spent so long trying to flick those tiny white dots at the bottom of the screen!

    Oh,and maths-forget it! Its completely unrecognisable to the work I did at school.

    My 11yr old regularly helps me with my mobile phone when I am trying to upload videos from it - I would happily go back to an old style mobile!

    Barky - I sailed through school/college no problems but the maths my son gets is way over my head and he is primary 6 lol. He was struggling a bit with maths and I now have a teacher come to my home every Wednesday for 1.5hrs to help him:oops:

    Mind you that was more for his benefit obviously than mines - and made a huge difference for him!

    My 9-yr-old had to show me how to set my ipod to play in the car using one of those wireless FM transmitter thingies :oops:

    it gets more confusing I promise you!!! This private tutor has been coming to our house for only 6 weeks now and his maths has improved amazingly. My failure was trying to explain things to him - found that very difficult because I knew the answers, but to explain it was my downfall! Now he is telling me lol

    80's & 90's kid....... we've all had the email about how you can tell that you were a 90's kid, what they miss off is that all your homework was copied of Microsoft Encarta.
