How dependent are you on technology? A new survey by Harris Interactive provides a bit of a chilling answer. As reported by the study, U.S. adults would rather do without sex than without their technology.
The power of tech
The Harris survey charted the percentage of adults who said that they could not live without certain items. Food -- a wise choice -- topped the list, with 73 percent of adults saying they could not live without it. A total of 42 percent of respondents said that they couldn't live without their cars, the second-place answer. The next four top answers were all tech products. And respondents deemed each of these tech products as being more important than sex.
The Harris survey found that 20 percent of adults said they couldn't live without sex. Coming in ahead of this? The survey found that 28 percent of adults couldn't live without Internet access, 26 percent without their mobile phones, 24 percent without their laptops and 23 percent without television.
What's it mean?
Should the results of this survey concern us? The Harris survey does illustrate how our world has evolved. Tech devices such as laptops and smartphones connect us to each other, entertainment and news. Some, though, might worry that tech is becoming too important in our lives.
