Not all of us are kids here at DVICE, so we could relate when Stewart Wolpin talked about the different priorities of the Internet Generation (or Generation M, for Millennials) and their ‘rents. But there’s hope for the oldsters. In fact, Stew himself admits to sending a text message or two from time to time. See how you measure up in this generational pecking order in this week’s SHIFT.
This week we learned about things that seemed impossible not too long ago, such as loading passengers onto a train that never stops moving, a working projector the size of an iPod, and the other extreme, a 10 million-pixel display that cost $22 million to build. Meanwhile, tempers flared in the comments section when we told you about the discovery of Super-Earths around another sun, sparking a near-holy-war over one of our most commented-upon stories ever.
