Some people would rather live without sex than live without some forms of technology, including their mobile phone and their TV.
A new infographic from Statista illustrates a Harris survey that measured how much we love our tech. Harris polled two groups -- 315 IT folks and 2,210 from the general population. Those in information technology ranked tech high for improving quality of life, encouraging creativity and enhancing their social life -- and more than half in the general population group agreed.
A majority of those polled in both groups also said technology was way too distracting, it's doing a number on our interpersonal communications -- and it's making us all lazy.
So it's a love-hate relationship. But when it comes to doing without tech, some of us would rather not. See the infographic below, or here's a version for mobile users.
