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...
