    10 Things That Will Be Obsolete When Our Children are in College

    Our generation has been called a lot of things over the years, and not all of them have been particularly flattering. But I think we can all agree that we are the generation that thrives on technology. They call us the "thumb generation" because we're always texting or typing, and that's not really something we can argue with. We are the age of the internet, the cell phone, and the ipad.
