I work for a large well known technology company, and daily I see people who are so dependent on their machines…sometimes, I turn mine off go somewhere quiet and read a good book…a much needed modicum of serenity indeed!

Preacher, I somewhat agree with you. This study must have been made with people who are connected to social networking etc...but that should not really sway the data by too much. I commute to work everyday, the number of "older" crowds on their phones (Blackberry's, iPhone, Galaxy etc..), is surprising. Age doesn't seem to make a difference. If parents are on Facebook, than the social networking, technology and gadgets not too far away. This infographic is a great illustration as to how dependent we have become.

Obviously the study had been made with people who are into social networking, technology, gadgets, apps, etc. The results of the study would therefore vary depending on how a person is attached to these things. I know people who do not have facebook or tablet; people who consider computers and technology as mere instruments for their work to be done. They do not care if there is such a thing as android or ios 7 coming out in the next months. I doubt if they actually know what ios stands for. Surely this study would not reach them. I salute them, though. The lesser things we have, the lesser we desire for more. The lesser we desire, the lesser we suffer.

Agreed! Too much technology reliance these days. It should be treated as commodity not necessity. Soon, people won't even know how to tie their shoes without an app. Technology is great, but do not let it consume you.
