The IPOD Generation

The young generation of Europe is being called the IPOD generation by their press.

Why IPOD you ask? Well, it's like this:

I: insecure

P: pressured

O: overtaxed

D: debt-ridden

I think we're pretty close to it too in America. I'm insecure at times and struggle with my goals (or lack there of) and feel pressured to achieve and acquire... As far as overtaxed goes, yep, that's true too. I actually owe money, even though I earn less than most people I know in New York. Debt-wise, I'm ok so far, but that's only because am not buying a house or car right now. Is that true for you too?

I agree that it's the iPod generation because of the iPod. Okay, sounds inane. But the iPod very well represents the connectivity and stimulation that youngsters these days come to expect (or completely covet if they don't have it). I'm not too sure how old you are, but if you're as old as I am (late 20s), we've missed it by a few years since we can remember the "good old days" of simplicity and voluntary connectivity.
