HIGHLIGHTS:  A new study has confirmed what you knew deep down . . . the average six-year-old now knows more about technology than the average 45-year-old.  Overall, 14 and 15-year-olds are the most confident about new technology.  The average 18-to 45-year-old knows slightly more than a six-year-old, but less than a teenager.

FULL STORY:  Next time you're having trouble getting an app to work on your phone, or figuring out how to get Netflix on your smart TV, you know what to do . . . run outside and grab a first grader.  Actually, don't do that . . . ASK a first grader.

A new study has confirmed what you knew deep down . . . the average six-year-old now knows MORE about technology than the average 45-year-old.

Overall, 14 and 15-year-olds are the most confident about new technology . . . understanding what it does, why you need it, and how to set it up.

And that makes sense . . . they were born around the year 2000, so they don't really remember a world before iPhones, DVRs, and high speed Internet.

The study also found the average adult between 18 and 45 knows slightly more than a six-year-old . . . but less than a teenager.
