Right there in paragraph three we can see the source of this particular story – computer memory specalists Crucial.com. Why are Crucial highlighting how ignorant parents are about technical terminology, when compared to their children?
“Adults aren’t just lacking confidence in their technology acronyms, many also lack knowledge about the simplest of tasks, such as upgrading their computer, which could help it run quicker and more efficiently,” said Roddy McLean, computer upgrade specialist from Crucial.com.
“Asking children for their help with technology could be easily avoided if adults realised just how easy technology DIY upgrades can be.”
Take note adults: don’t ask your children for advice, ask Crucial.com – so they can help you discover what they can sell you.
