I love this generations for all of the benefits afforded by modern technology. Almost all of my chavrusas are skyped and all my shiurim are mp3'd etc. etc. etc. More important than my own personal benefit, so many people benefit in so many ways.
But it is sickeneing to me to watch people glued to their stupidphones day and night. Einstein is quoted as saying "I fear that technology will surpass our human interaction. We will have a generation of idiots."
