Would you?

Slashdot | When Does Technolust Become An Addiction?

Would you give up the use of a mobile phone (for life), for £1 million? Apparently 1 in 3 young Britons wouldn’t. Wow. I think I grossly underestimated the technophilia of the English. When I was there, people were happy to live without the internet for weeks on end. Some *gasp* didn’t even have email addresses. This was around the same time that the Koreans declared “email is for old people.”

Surprisingly, I think I’d take up that offer, depending on what the definition of mobile telephone was. Would an internet tablet count?
