Kids to spend a quarter of life watching screens

Posted on Tuesday, February 19 2013 @ 14:57:03 CET by


Digital Spy spreads news that a new British study predicts kids growing up today in the UK will have spent almost a quarter of their life watching non-work-related screen technology by the time they reach 80.
The inaugural Halifax Insurance Digital Home Index reveals that three-quarters of Brits (73%) would struggle to last one day without devices such as smartphones, laptops and MP3 players. Almost a quarter (23%) would feel "uneasy or worried" about switching off their devices, while one in five (19%) would feel concern about "missing out".

Over 22 million of Brits (45%) now use devices to communicate with friends and family even when they are in the same house, while 22% prefer speaking on the phone or via social media rather than face-to-face. The research found that 12 million (25%) people check technology devices from their beds, and one in ten take theirs into the bathroom. Over 35 million (74%) check emails and social networks before starting work in the morning.
