SMSing while you Drive -- the Coming of the Multitaskers

I came across this (slightly old) post on Textually.org -- a blog that "covers the latest news on texting or short messaging (SMS) and multimedia messaging (MMS)" that talked about how a part of our coming generations might be successful multitaskers. The post quotes a study by Pew that reports that many youngsters today surf the web or play games while they use the instant messenger. Some even watch TV.

Does this mean that soon we will have a generation that will surf the web, text message, and maybe drive a car at the same time?
