If you were taking an all-day flight, breathing in circulated air and possibly losing hours of your day, you’d probably wish you had ……an iPad?
In a recent study of more than 1,300 iPad owners, 44% said they’d go without water (41%) and food (48%) than go without their iPad on a day-long business trip. If you think that’s an intense iPad addiction, check out this stat: 35% said they’d forgo bathroom breaks. Now that’s roughing it.
Traveling is not the only place people desire to be hands-on with their iPad: 60% of survey respondents said they use their iPad while on the toilet; 34% use their iPad while naked.
There is a long list of stats that show just how attached business travelers in particular are to their iPads. One in three said breaking their iPad would be more painful than getting a root canal — we’re guessing they mean emotionally. Nearly half (46%) would rather lose their credit card than their iPad, and 20% would rather lose their wedding ring, afterall, wedding rings can’t access airport Wi-Fi.
This online survey of over 1,300 iPad owners was done for Brainshark, a cloud-based software company.
