Poll Results: On the Road Again

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: On the Road Again -- Last week's poll asking which computing and communications gear people find most useful while travelling came up with a somewhat surprising winner: while respondents were able to choose among high-tech items like cellular phones, PDAs, laptop computers, and pagers, old-fashioned pen and paper was cited by nearly 70 percent of the respondents. Mobile phones, PDAs, and laptop computers were in a tight heat, being cited by 51 to 57 percent of respondents, while other options like GPS devices and pagers were far behind with only 4 and 8 percent response. Only seven people thought none of these devices were useful. [GD]
