Technology as an indicator of aging

Two ways technology makes me feel old...

1) When I adjust controls on VCR/DVD player, I bend over, get my face about 12 inches from it, push a few buttons, and then see if it works. My sons, on the other hand, walk by and do the same thing without breaking stride on their way to the couch.

2) A weekly ritual for me is looking at the Sunday Best Buy flyer and gaping at the cool electronics. Well... I've noticed that with each year, I recognize a smaller percentage of what they are selling, or, at least know what's special about it.
