A new survey has revealed the extent to which Americans are attached to their computers and mobile phones. Nearly three-quarters of people want to access to their computers, smartphones while they are on vacation.
Seventeen percent went so far as to say they wanted access during their honeymoon.
AdvertisementTeamViewer, a provider of remote-access software, and Harris Corporation jointly conducted the survey of 2,300 Americans.
"These findings show that no matter what the situation, an overwhelming majority of Americans believe they should be able to remotely access all their devices, use applications and look for data anytime, anywhere," Livescience quoted Holger Felgner, general manager for TeamViewer, as saying in a prepared release.
The research also examined the growing trend in the individual use of multiple computers.
Nearly two-thirds of the survey respondents are now using more than one computer, smartphone or tablet on a weekly basis, with 15 percent using four or more, according to Harris.
That number tilted toward men, with 35 percent saying they use three to five devices, compared with 27 percent of women who said so.
Overall, the vast majority of respondents - 83 percent - said they wanted access to their computers while away from the office or house.
