It's suspicious because
A.  That's a highly specific charge that seems to reflect a knowledge of computer networking that didn't even exist the year he died.
B.  One can't find that quote attributed to Einstein anywhere but an image.
C.  Einstein wasn't in the habit of criticizing  technology as the cause of social ills
D.  Einstein almost never called anyone idiots

It all adds up to the same sorta shiat you see with the "And that student was Einstein!" type chain mails.  I.e. the "My beliefs suck too hard to stand on their own and need to be attributed to a famous intellectual"

It does, actually.  The month you are born has a huge predictive value for your academic success.  The maturity you show against your age group when you start school gets misconstrued as intelligence(or physical ability in sports) and you tend to get fast tracked to success, with a positive feedback loop.

Certainly not, in terms of his accomplishments in physics.  But personally as a physics student, I'd rather emulate Feynman than Einstein.  In addition to being a genius, Feynman was one of the greatest teachers ever, and lived an extremely full and vibrant life.  Einstein was more of a "everybody shut up, leave me alone and let me think" kind of guy.

Fully agree.  Feynman was a great physicist, great teacher, and great person.  While Einstein was a loner.  Even his research was done with very little help from others.  But I think he was talking about the pure genius part.  In that respect, Einstein  was in a whole other level.

Albert Einstein has nothing to do with the bagels - it's his brother who does all the work in that business. It's all a publicity stunt, he just lends his name. He doesn't even have an office at the corporate HQ - I've been there. If they were telling the truth they'd call the place "Einstein's Brother's bagels", but you won't be seeing those apostrophes any time soon. It's all about the money.

It's true that lot of people make that judgement based on the relative importance of their discoveries, but I'm not sure that's really fair.  Huge discoveries like Relativity are a product of genius, certainly, but also of environment.  Einstein did his work during a period when physics was ripe for a revolution.  Feynman did his in the wake of a groundbreaking discovery, amid a veritable flood of opportunity.  It's only natural that even if they were of a similar degree of genius, one would make progress in a more general way than the other.  Einstein created one of the most impactful theories in the history of science.  Feynman created arguably the most successful theory in the history of science.   They were both amazing men.

FWIW, their contemporaries saw Einstein and Feynman as fairly equal in their deeper understanding of the physics behind the mathematics they worked in.

It looks like they had a bad meeting and E was being a jerk.

After Princeton

During March and April 1959, at Wheeler's request, Everett visited Copenhagen, on vacation with his wife and baby daughter, in order to meet with Niels Bohr, the "father of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics". The visit was a complete disaster; Everett was unable to communicate the main idea that the universe is describable, in theory, by an objectively existing universal wave function (which does not "collapse"); this was simply heresy to Bohr and the others at Copenhagen. The conceptual gulf between their positions was too wide to allow any meeting of minds; Léon Rosenfeld, one of Bohr's devotees, talking about Everett's visit, described Everett as being "indescribably stupid and could not understand the simplest things in quantum mechanics". Everett later described this experience as "hell...doomed from the beginning".
