Sesame Street song digs at our app dependence

By Pam Carroll

Nov 04, 2010

Sesame Street endures because it has always tapped into the zeitgeist and it does so again in its "There's an app for that" song.

Guy Smilie, Telly Monster and friends wax poetic about the iPogo -- we're not sure what the kids watching will think, but it does give adults pause.

Will coming generations be so reliant on technology that they truly will think they need an app for absolutely everything? Will every problem be solved and every decision influenced by the apps they're using? Do you find this exciting, frightening or simply the way of the world?

Watch the clip and let us know what you think.

    ...YYYEEEEEEESSS!!! Finally, even Sesame Street has decided to cash in on the incredible technology our world has to offer, though this particular item might lean more towards teens, since apps and i-stuff is what they live for.
