Survey Says Email Trumps Spouse, Coffee and Chocolate

Uncategorized Posted Apr 23, 2007 by metropolis

InfoWeek recently picked up on a survey by IncrediMail Ltd. that reveals just how devoted to our email we’ve become. More than 10,000 IncrediMail users completed the survey, with 73.8% indicating that email is essential to their lives.

When asked what they would rather give up for a day instead of losing email, the surveyed said that they would rather forego:

  • chocolate (54.4%)’
  • coffee (50.2%)
  • television (41.4%)
  • their cell phone (38.4%)
  • their spouse/significant other (14.9%)

In the interest of marital harmony, I will not be asking my Blackberry-wielding spouse the survey questions.
