Paradigm shifting

Two things I have had to get my head round recently that the average twelve year old will probably take for granted.

1. Not deleting stuff. Who needs to, when you've got Google search technology? Chuck it all in a bucket and then look for what you want when you want it. You'll never need it again? No big deal. Space is cheaper than time.

2. Not having a stop button. iPods don't need one, there's nothing to wear our or stretch. You pause it, or you turn it off. I looked through the user guide seventeen times before this finally occurred to me. And it still feels weird.
