A study conducted by AP-Ipsos unveils that one in five people took their laptop with them on their most recent vacations.
Along with the 80 percent who said they brought along their cell phones, the survey shows going on vacation no longer means being out of the electronic loop.
Sizable numbers are interrupting their unwinding time to check in at the office and, even more so, to keep up with the social buzz.
About one in five said they did some work while vacationing, and about the same number checked office messages or called in to see how things were going, the poll showed. Twice as many checked their e-mail, while 50 percent kept up with other personal messages like voice mail.
