technology cave

Slang for a tween's bedroom, staples in "the technology cave" include a TV, computer, stereo, iPod, and cell phone.

Historical perspective: In 2010, it was hardly news that young people are fascinated with social media, video games, TV, and iPods, but a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found the average young person from 8 to 18  spends literally every waking moment outside of school on the Internet, watching TV, listening to music on MP3 players, texting, or using some other electronic device. That comes to kids spending an average of seven and half hours daily consuming media in some form, AND, when you include multitasking, kids actually consume close to 11 hours' worth of content in that time!
