According to a rather grim survey, the Internet is making grandparents obsolete. Reportedly, two thirds of grandparents feel that "their role is being eclipsed by Google, Wikipedia and YouTube, where kids go for advice on traditionally grandparent-y stuff like dinner recipes, household chores and historical insights."
Grandparents believe they are being sidelined by Google, YouTube, Wikipedia and the huge resource of advice available on the internet, one researcher told The Telegraph. They are aware that their grandchildren ? already with their noses buried in a laptop, tablet computer or smartphone ? find it much easier to search the internet for instant advice.
