Study: Teens optimistic about innovation

From USA Today:

Teenagers have some seemingly high expectations about what technology might bring over the next decade, according to a new Massachusetts Institute of Technology study.

For example, 33% of teens predicted that gasoline-powered cars will go the way of the horse and buggy by 2015. Just 16% of adults agreed.

Meanwhile, 22% of teenagers predicted desktop computers will become obsolete a decade from now, while only 10% of adults agreed.

Adults, on the other hand, were far more certain about the demise of the landline telephone by 2015 (45% made that prediction) than teenagers (17 percent).
