mobile phone and internet access are more important than having a partner
Here's an interesting survey from Germany. In the age group of 19 to 29, 97 percent said that they can't live without a mobile phone, and 83 per cent would let go their partner or a vehicle than forgo the internet connection. This result shouldn't be surprise to today's high tech geeks.
I found myself having difficult times when I was in Tasmania early this year. My Vodafone was out of reception in many many places. (I know I should have got a Telstra backup phone when I go out of major towns, and I will do that next time.) Although I did bring Telstra's PrePaid Wireless Broadband, there are still areas without any coverage.
I still remember that I promised to post a small list of gadgets I carried with me for the Tasmanis trip. The photos have been taken, and I will post that soon.

TWENTY-SOMETHINGS in Germany would ditch their spouses and do without a car in a heartbeat if it came to choosing between having them or web access, an industry study has found. About 83 per cent of respondents aged 19 to 29 said they would rather do without their partner or an automobile than forego their internet connection, in a survey of 1000 people by broadband association Bitkom.
