Tech and Gadgets Increasingly Part of Life, Poll Shows

An AP-Ipsos poll, reported in Wired News, shows that Americans inreasingly consider technological gadgets essential parts of their lives.

Almost half of personal computer owners say they can't imagine life without their computers, with roughly the same percentage of cell phone owners saying the same thing about their phones.

Almost four in ten people with high-speed Internet consider it essential, and about two in ten feel that way about their DVD players, digital cable and CD players.

A third of American households spend more than $200 per month on tech. Forty percent spend between $100 and $150 per month. Forty percent of homes have game consoles, twenty five percent have MP3 players.
