YOUNG PEOPLE WITH THEIR GADGETS

We're not that surprised at the Ofcom report published today which discovers young people use new technology, but we did raise an eyebrow at this finding:

Half of the group owns a games console and/or an MP3 player.

Which doesn't seem that odd until you cast it into pre-digital terms: Half of the group own a football or a tape recorder.

Er, could this be something to do with the fact that decent games consoles or MP3 are a damn sight more expensive than tape recorders or footballs ever were?

Next: shock, horror, you mean some people's mummies can't afford to buy them a house when they go to university!

But my point was less about half of them owning one, more that lumping together electronic games and music players was a strange thing to do...

Ah, sorry, I completely misunderstood you.
