What's more important to your life . . . having super fast Internet at home, or being able to eat food that isn't spoiled? The more popular answer is, obviously, super fast Internet.
A new survey asked people what technology they couldn't live without, and high-speed broadband came in first. The Internet itself came in second. In other words, we like the Internet, but we like it coming in FAST even more.
The top 10 are: High-speed broadband cable . . . the Internet . . . the washing machine . . . email . . . the fridge . . . the freezer . . . the microwave . . . the dishwasher . . . satellite TV . . . and glasses.
(Actually, it's a British list, so "tea kettle" was in the top ten. But let's get real.)
The rest of the top 30 continues that same mix of super-modern luxury gadgets and basic life essentials.
Like, the iPad came in 13th . . . Facebook came in 17th . . . the dryer came in 19th . . . the toaster came in 20th . . . the Kindle was 21st . . . high definition TV was 25th . . . and air conditioning was 28th. (Daily Mail)
