TV remotes and ADD

zenith_spacecommand.jpgIt seems to me that we have breed this generation of children to have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). The attention span of an Internet user is measured in seconds, it is amazing that they can watch a youtube.com video that is more than a couple of minutes long. I blame the TV remote control.

With the addition of 150+ cable and satellite channels, teenagers of today can waste and entire hour just flipping through the channels a single time. This in combination with fast that and instant this and a few extremes and you are all set to have your mind change channels a thousand times a minute. OK gotta go, I need to set my TIVO.

    Sorry, I stopped paying attention as soon as you mentioned youtube, I had to go over and look at todays’ videos. I saw this one of a fat dude, which reminded me that I was hungry. After I ate someone’s food in the breakroom fridge. I noticed that the TV was on. That reminded me to finish reading your post.
