People Don't Know What A Browser Is!!

One of my favorite blogs for unofficial Google related news is Google Operating System. I came across this post about a former intern at Google asking internet related questions to people in Times Square, New York (video below). Most people didn't know what a browser was, they thought that a browser equals a search engine, and no one heard of Google Chrome (this is possibly acceptable since Chromes market share is ~1.8%). Our society definitely needs to increase their TechEd (technology education). I know some people, who I'll classify as younger (less than 40), that do not have an email address, have no desire to do online banking, and have no clue what a MP3 player is. The gap between low TechEd and high TechEd is growing, how will the low end survive?
