Who has a better life – this generation or the previous?

Answer by Bharath Kumar Balasubramanian:

I would answer this question from a technology perspective:
My generation – 80’s born (Gen Y) have seen a sea of change!
– We moved from 8-inch to 5 1/4  inch to 3 1/2 inch floppy disks!
– We jumped in glee at using the shiny CDs, followed by DVDs and then Blue-rays!
– We saw ‘Thumb’/Pen drives proliferate along with external HDDs
– We saw Moore’s law in action – performance of systems getting better and better while becoming smaller and smarter!
– Mobile phones metamorphosed from brick like devices to the smart snazzy devices that we use today!
– From Dial-up modems and their classic connection noise, that we would patiently handle   we have moved to superfast broadband!
– Websites and Applications for each and everything – you name it, it is available!
– Laziness and convenience got a boost with on-line shopping. Anything and everything delivered at the click of a mouse!
– We are connected more than ever before – very social!
– We are in the knowledge proliferation age. All that you want to know is available and all you have to do is just ask! (Quora for example!)
Isn’t this a great time to be!!
