Gotta Take Your Gadgets Along
from the can't-leave-home-without-them dept
Our gadgets may be becoming increasingly disposable, but that doesn’t mean we can deal without them. A study of British backpackers found that they tend to take their gadgets with them. The vast majority had their mobile phones, and many brought along MP3 players and laptops. Most backpackers also make sure to find an internet connection somewhere on a regular basis to email home. A few even claimed to email to colleagues and respond to work emails while backpacking. Ah, the 21st century vacation.
