* Within days of the introduction of Pokemon Go news outlets passed along a number of stories relating to it, including people being robbed while playing the game, a woman stumbling on a dead body, and people playing in inappropriate areas such as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. In most cases the problems encountered stemmed either from a lack of common sense while playing or were risks one would take by simply going outside.

** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1153097-pokemon-go Political]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1153448-pokemon-go cartoons]] depict ''GO'' players as dull and colorless people blindly enslaved to virtual monsters ([[SmallReferencePools specifically Pikachu]]) on their phones. As you can tell from the links provided, ''GO'' players respond by pointing out the irony of this trope applying to a game intended to get people outside and socializing.

-->These talking machines are going to ruin the artistic development of music in this country. When I was a boy...in front of every house in the summer evenings, you would find young people together singing the songs of the day or old songs. Today you hear these infernal machines going night and day. We will not have a vocal chord left. The vocal chord will be eliminated by a process of evolution, as was the [[YouFailBiologyForever tail of man when he came from the ape]].
* Not long after Piano rolls came the phonograph, which could record any sound, not just piano music. The musical establishment predictably threw an even bigger fit, fearing that recorded music would drive live musicians to extinction and deny them proper compensation for their work. [[FridgeLogic No one, apparently, realized that musicians would still be needed to record the music, and would become even more in demand as records allowed them to sell their music to more people than ever before.]]

** In a stroke of FridgeBrilliance, Chatroulette was actually created by a Russian teenager. Perhaps that's why the journalist forgot that there's a kind of roulette that does not involve a firearm.
** To be fair, the site ''is'' full of people waving their dicks around onscreen. Unless you're really lucky, you ''are'' going to see at least one random guy's penis.

Added DiffLines:

* The first model of the iPad actually represented a somewhat bizarre inversion of the usual generation lines: Many young people compared it, unfavorably, to their laptops. However, the interface was so easy-to-use many older people found themselves becoming computer literate for the first time.
