LOS ANGELES, California ( The Adobo Chronicles ) – Technology has definitely caught up with America’s new generation of teenagers. Or is it the other way around?

Today, the Field Poll released a new nationwide opinion survey involving 5,000 Americans throughout the country — aged 13 to 19 — asking them one open-ended question: “What do you know about the G7?”

The Field Poll, or the California Poll, was established in 1947 by Mervin Field and has operated continuously as an independent, non-partisan, media-sponsored public opinion news service. They cover a wide range of political and social topics.

An overwhelming 85% of respondents thought that G7 was Google’s new smart phone.

Only 5% correctly answered that the G7  was the seven-nation informal bloc of industrialized democracies that meet annually to discuss issues such us global economic governance, international security and energy policy. Even then, none of those who answered correctly could name all 7 countries — United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.  The G7 has just concluded its 2015 summit meeting in the Bavarian Alps in Germany.

The remaining 10% of respondents did not venture to give any answer.

Because of the overwhelming numbers, the poll has a zero percent margin of error.

The last major poll of American teens was almost a decade ago. That survey found that as many  as 70% of young adults  could not locate Iran or Israel on the map.

Remember this 2007 Miss Teen USA moment?

GOOGLE ACCUSED OF RACISM

imageSILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles)  – Technology giant Google is in deep trouble.  It is being accused of racism.  Not just racism, but racism against the current occupant of The White House.

Netizens who try to do a Google search using the terms ‘N*gga House’ will be directed to a famous address on Pensylvannia Avenue in the nation’s capital.

Go figure.

 

 

APPLE TO RELEASE CHEAP AND DISPOSABLE VERSION OF GOOGLE GLASS

Cupertino, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Move over, Google Glass. Here comes iGlass, and it’s cheap and disposable!

Apple announced today that as part of its venture into wearable technology, it is releasing a Beta version of what it hopes would be its answer to the $1,500 Google Glass.

The iGlass will be released together with the Apple watch in early 2015.

Apple’s iGlass will do just about everything that the Google Glass is capable of, except that it is cheap — at $39.99 — and disposable. And did we mention recyclable?

The iGlass is made of collapsible cardboard that attaches with a ribbon (included) to a baseball cap (not included). Giants fans, this is for you!

When not in use, iGlass can be collapsed and neatly stored in your drawer or your car’s glove compartment. However, iGlass must be partnered with either an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus (sorry Android fans, you just have to stick to the more expensive Google Glass).  The iPhone is then attached, snuggly, to the cardboard casing and all you need to do is download the iGlass app from the Apple Store to make it work.

Pre-orders are now being accepted, just in time for the gift-giving holidays. So, delay your gift-giving for now and send your loved ones a raincheck for the iGlass coming in January to an Apple Store near you.
