New music has always sounded crap. It's a case of Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crap) combined with survivor bias (the 10% that isn't crap is more likely to be remembered and still played much later). For every great song you can remember from a prior decade, there are nine more that were such complete crap that you don't even remember that they were briefly popular.
Also: Kids will always tend to prefer things that make their parents angry. It makes them feel like "rebels".

How about a compromise?
How about the US gov. makes an official tracking app available for download on the app store. You can install it and it'll send your exact location to them at all times to make you safer.
ie. It's voluntary.
I pray you don't have a heart attack and need 911 tell first responders how to find you in a hurry.
"pray", yep that tells me a lot.
How about it's voluntary. You can download and install "Official government tracking app" if you want.
That way you'll be safe, OK?
Because at the end of the day I can uninstall Uber
Because at the end of the day I can not even install Uber in the first place.
How about we make the phone software only send the information if 911 is dialed.
That would work, yes.
Remember: The current politicians are the ones who write the laws. It's no wonder their crimes aren't illegal.
They also plan to not have other types of people in office, hence Chelsea's predicament.
First, mining is dominated by a small group of individuals/organizations with expensive specialized hardware (ASICs). This makes a 51% attack plausible should a cartel form, note that a mining pool reached 50% a few years ago. Secondly, 70% of miners are located in a single country and dependent upon government supplied inexpensive electricity.
And that government has recently announced it's going to shut them all down.
Time for a power-grab... one person with enough resources could literally steal all the Bitcoins ever.
(although they wouldn't grab 100% because they'd be worthless if they did, they have to strike the right balance to take away everybody's life savings)
It's almost as if you know nothing about the design behind the QWERTY keyboard...
You haven't actually read Judge Dredd, have you?
Though I believe too that it is in a bubble I believe bitcoin is too well known to drop to zero value. Instead, it is quite likely that it will become the equivalent of penny stock -
Nope. Bitcoin transactions aren't free. Would you buy penny stocks if the transaction fees were several dollars?
The NASDAQ is tied to things that generate profits. Actual money. For the NASDAQ to go to zero all those companies have to vanish.
Bitcoin, on the other hand... isn't. It's 100% speculation.
I would point out that Bitcoin has popped, quite a few times by now. It doesn't zero out tho and keeps coming back
Dreams are hard to kill. People still want to believe they can be magically rich.
Remember though: Every time somebody cashes out and makes a profit, that money came from somebody else's savings. It wasn't because Bitcoin generated some value out of nothing.
Bringing computers into the home won't change either one, but may revitalize the corner saloon.
