I will perform by speech in side of that they are different, and I'll wait from you interesting and debatable answer, let's begin from that thirty-two years had been elapsing from the 80th to the nowadays. But this short time was enough to make global changes. When our parents talk to us about their young life in 80th, for us it seems like the story from remote past, because we didn"t see that time, and feel that experience which felt our parents, we just compare their young life and our life nowadays, and notice that the life has strongly changed from that period. It wouldn"t be so without some aspects, as the Internet, Independence of our country and etc. Exactly these changes have changed life and people"s life style.
In both period of life people are well informed. Sure, they did it in their own way. In 80th it was famous to find information from books or newspapers. It was harder to find something, so they looked through many newspapers and books to find only one thing, but nowadays as I said earlier people do it with the Internet. The Internet is everywhere and available, so we could find the information, just typing what information we need in "searching line" in the Internet, and after the several seconds we are already informed.
Of course, the communication of people in 80th and the communication nowadays are done by different ways, but the fact is that people have communication. In people"s life style in 80th, people had communication face-to-face, and not all people had phones. Only some famous and influential people had them. People had to communicate face-to-face to solve something and just to communicate. And there was non-verbal type of communication called letters. When someone went to far place, relations wrote the letter to him, and the recipient waited for the letter for one week to get it.
Nowadays, people have many types of communication. Except of communication face-to-face, people communicate with each other by online conversation and talk to the phone. Even people less use the communication face-to-face than online conversation, because the majority of people use the Internet and spend the most of their time in the Internet. Also it is comfortably to communicate, because people don"t have to wait for one week to get the message, the message comes immediately after its sending.
The one difference is how people achieved their needs, works. As I said people of 80th, didn"t have the Internet, so they had to go to the certain place to make their needs, for example to do shopping, to save their money in bank, to order some important documents, like a ticket to somewhere, and it was spending much time of people at that time. Nowadays, people can do it just sitting at home, they call to somewhere and buy something or do online shopping in online markets. They save their money in the Internet banks, so they can easily use their virtual money to pay for the items from the online markets. Also it spends a little time, which shows us that the changes were done to make today"s life easier and more effective.
Another difference is people. These changes have changed not only people"s life, but also changed people, their character. In 80th, people were more hardworking, because they couldn"t sit at home, they did more activities themselves, but nowadays people aren"t such hard workers, because the so high level of technologies allows us not to be active. We can even see how the majority of teenagers nowadays spend their time only in front of computers, so we can say that today"s people have lazier style of life than the people of 80th.
We can easily notice these changes which have changed people"s life style. Some aspects made people"s life easier and effective. We can"t argue with it, because it made our life better, but there is only thing which is bad consequence of these changes, it caused people"s becoming lazy. People know that the technology is getting advanced day by day, it means that people will become lazier than nowadays, and there might be not only changes in characters of people, also there might be the changes in body construction of people, they might become weaker, so we can"t be against it, because the future requires from us these changes.

Well the life in the eighties had different concepts such as it was the big hippie era but it had the sam 'interests' such as new cars, technology and music. so say we had a building we have the foundations and then the actual building is changing and continualy getting refurbished. So the foundations to human life is the same but the types of the critirea are different.
