Good example of how technology evolves faster than the minds of our elder people. I wonder how, us Snotr's, will perceive technology in 30-50 years from now, given our current understanding of it's development.

She: "Hey Dad, I didn't ask you yet, but how do you like the new IPad we gave you yesterday as a birthday present?"
He: "I like."
She: "You cool with handling the apps?"
He: "Hm…? What apps? Could you step aside, please?"
He: "What?"

Obviously, if all else fails,read the directions. If you are capable of making fun of someone who was not handed computers to use in school, and you didn't have to pay form them. You were taught because it was required of you, not because it came to you as a toy. In time,you will be the one who is learning a new device, and you will be in the same spot this man is. I wonder how you will be. Huh. My guess is, your children know more than you.

A great example of how little use these devices are to most people. They got along without an iPad just fine for decades. Why would they suddenly need one now? People like this guy should be applauded for not requiring to be "plugged in" at all times. He has learned to live life without needing all those money pit gadgets and is probably much happier in life because of it. Most people who consider themselves technologically savvy are actually creatively challenged because they lack the ability to entertain themselves without the use of flashy and colorful pixels to create their day for them. You can never experience something by reading about it online.

I will be more than happy to stack my toys up against yours, both now and in the distant future, when you get to be my age (assuming you ever get to be my age after making such asinine statements as this one). I will also test my general knowledge against yours any day of the week, including weekends.

I am a "mature" adult and needed help to learn to use a cell phone and thought this was really funny...simply because I could identify. Granted I would know enough to recognize it as a tech toy and set it aside to ask a grandchild to help me but the clip sure does resonate with the frustration my generation often feels with new technology. Laughed out loud. Funny!

I wonder if this will seem so funny four or five years from now? I can make more for old imac's by gutting them and making fishtanks than I could get leaving them running. I've got a booting macintosh that's probably going the same way. In about 5 years this will probably be the most effective use for an ipad. Corning glass has an investor presentation on You Tube called 'A Day Made of Glass'. These content viewers aren't gonna be the bricks they currently are too much longer. Google's coming with the "glasses" already. And notice that even in the slick Corning production the content is being viewed and shared but not produced. Nobody is making their ipad app on an ipad. Maybe the father knew all along what it was supposed to be for and still chose to use it that way. I quit bothering to learn phones years ago. No point when your likely to end up with something very different in a year or so.

I found the humor in this immediately, recognizing this as a spoof. I think humor is lost on the younger generation to a large degree.

It is just a matter of what you do for a living and how curious a soul you are. When I was born, there were no color TV's yet, however at age 65, I have been using computers on a daily basis since 1971; 41 years (probably longer than most of you have been alive). From IBM mainframes, to PC's to my favorite “The very smart Phone" small and does everything! And I love my 6’ X 6’ X 1 inch thick TV that hangs on the wall that I have been talking about wanting all my life.

I wash it all the time, and my iPad works better for it--and with no finger prints! Apple products simply can't be beat. And my freshly washed iPad brought top dollar when I sold it and picked up a 2nd iPod. (An iPod is a better camera, it fits in my shirt pocket while I'm tread-milling while listening to music, and I don't mistake it for a cutting board!)

Regarding the previous comment--maybe it's because I'm older (there weren't even black and white TVs when I was born)--but where's the humor? The guy was either routinely washing his iPad, or he's a movie-maker who confused his editing screen with a kitchen cutting board. There's an app with a GPS sensitizer and SIRI activater that says:"I'm an iPad, not a cutting board, you idiot!" But I would never install an app that: 1.stopped me from cleaning my iPad, even by accident; 2. insulted my intelligence; 3. cost me 99 cents.

money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPod.'

Typical high-tech story. Bravo to the old man for NOT knowing what an iPad is. I am a prolific genius inventor (you probably use some of my devices everyday and don't even know I invented them) and my direct experience with most high-tech techies is that they cannot even fix their own malfunctioning toilets. They are all just a lot of virtual reality fluff-and-puff.

The vegetables he's chopping will help him live a longer and healthier live, that iPad will not!

#38 I just turned 62 and I, too, grew up in a one, black and white television home. We were so excited when my mother bought this 'clicker' thing and she could turn the tv on and off (she was in bed with a back injury). I remember when talk about a TV set that could be hung on the wall like a picture made the news! Oh, I could not wait to buy THAT! 30 years later, the flat tv has arrived, and guess what....I can't afford one.. But, I'm happy they exist. MY daughter bought an IPAD which I enjoy in my limited way. Now, she's determined to replace my broken Blackberry with the iPod 4. Wish me luck!

I think the "dad" was just being difficult with his daughter.....if he watched TV or opened a newspaper he would have seen an Ipad advertised.

Another example of new technology in the Computer age.....In the late 80's and 90's I used to set up PC's in my Engineering Company and never forgot the call from a user complaining about the cup holder on his tower. It seems the darn thing closed with his styrofoam coffee cup on it and spilled coffee on his slax and shoes. I had to break the news to him that it was a new fangled invention called a CD player and not a cup holder. He was one of the Supervisors in that department.

A lesson learned then and now is very simple. Never ASSUME the recipient of the Computer device actually knows everything (or anything) about that device when you present it to him/her.
Technology can be dangerous!
