Troubleshooting Skills

Is it me, or do the younger generations lack troubleshooting skills?  Growing up in the early days of the modern generation of home computers with Windows (mid-90’s), if I wanted to do something, I had to figure it out.  Google did not exist yet.  I could search for something via Yahoo or other “first-gen” search engines, but there was not the plethora of data there is today.  With everything at everyone’s fingertips, does one need to have troubleshooting skills?  The answer is still yes.  I do not know how many times I have seen a young person just sit there and wait for someone to tell them they need to look it up via Google or Bing when that person has done so countless times.  What good is all of that information if you do not have the proper skills to actually look it up?
