When I was growing up, I viewed adults aversion to the new thing as a result of laziness.

Then I grew up. And I am noticing that many of the problems we are facing on a daily-basis, have shitty new solutions. When I look into before my time, I often find out there is a well tested, mature, and efficient solution, with its only fault being "not as shiny".

I become less and less contempt with what I get with "new" stuff. The old stuff is also new to me. But they are not new to the world.
