Thumbs Are The New Fingers For Kids

from the my-thumbs-are-useless! dept

Suddenly I feel old. My thumbs are useless compared to today’s younger generation. Sure, I can touch type upside down underwater in the dark (no, not tested), but hand me a mobile device, and my thumbs slow me down. However, these kids today who have grown up with mobile devices are extremely capable of using both thumbs for typing purposes. Whereas us older folks are more likely to be a fan of the trusty old index finger method, the kids of today find the thumb to be the digit of choice.
