I agree that it is exaggerated, but there will certainly be differences in the way the next generation approaches the internet.
On a similar note, over the winter break I realized that my 12-year old cousin has almost never been exposed to any headphones except earbuds. As a result, he was talking about Beats with such awe as if they were treading new ground with headphones that actually covered your ears and sounded decent.
New trends in tech are shaping the perceptions of generations that didn't know what came before. Sometimes it's a regression.
