British Choose Internet Over Cars and Washing Machines
The study revealsÂ that 90% of 18-24 year olds own a notebook with 73% saying that they “couldnâ€™t live without” it.
I fear for Halfords – I really do!! 😉
Britons apparently consider access to the internet (67%) as more important than access to a car (54%) or a washing machine (58%).
AMD suggests that theÂ “constantly-connected” Brits are shunning face-to-faceÂ get-togethersÂ in favour of social networking sitesÂ and catching up with TV online.
The report states that almost half (41%) of men enjoy watching BBC iPlayer on their notebooks.
Men are the ones most likely to download music (71% men v 62% women) and the ladies are more interested in chatting with their friends and family on Instant Messenger (75% v 72% of men).
Now – I must get back to Twitter, check my email, see who’s online on MSN, AOL, ICQ….
