Say society was to do away with all modern technological devices. Which would you miss the most?
It probably depends on your age. A new study by Ofcom, which is the UK’s version of the FCC, showed there’s a big difference between which device people would miss most based on age.
As seen in the chart below, younger people value their mobile phones more than any other device, with 59 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds saying they’d miss their mobile device more than any other device. Meanwhile, 68 percent of those aged 75 and up would miss their TVs most, according to the study.
“[T]he grandparents can’t live without the TV, and (surprise surprise) you’d have to wrest the smartphones from millenials’ cold, dead hands,” Gizmodo reported.
