A Portrait of the Modern High-Tech Family [INFOGRAPHIC].
The average modern family still has two children, two cars and two TVs, but cutting-edge gadgets are moving right on in and making themselves at home.
In fact, according to a new study by ABC’s popular TV show Modern Family, families now own three mobile devices and three computers — for a total of six devices.
The study was conducted on 2,000 British adults in a four-person family.

“Technology plays a major part in modern households now with several TVs, computers and mobile phones owned by each family,” a spokesperson for Modern Family said in a statement. “Children in particular are taking over the household gadgets, not least what’s on TV, with more than half saying it’s kids’ programs that are on screen.”
For a full look at the modern high-tech family, check out the infographic below.
The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will be broadcast tonight (Sunday, Sept. 23) at 7 p.m. ET on ABC, and if you’re like us, you’re probably wondering who’s going to win.
You can guess who might be taking home the Emmy hardware tonight, but guesswork won’t be enough — we figured the best way to get a more accurate reading of the pulse of the American public would be to get a gigantic sample of TV watchers, celebrities and people in the entertainment world to tell us who they thought would emerge victorious.
To do that, we turned to digital magazine distributor Zinio, which polled an impressive 250,000 digital magazine subscribers, asking them who they thought would be the big Emmy Award winners tonight in the major categories. With such a large sample, it will be interesting to see how close these predictions are to the actual results.
Meanwhile, if you’re interested in a free second-screen experience while you watch the Emmys live, go to “Backstage Live” at Emmys.com, where you’ll see candid red carpet and backstage moments via your choice of 15 cameras. We watched it for the past couple of years, and even though that multitude of cameras won’t show you what’s happening on stage at the awards ceremony — you have live television to do that for you — it’s quite entertaining and revealing, a perfect supplement to give you a comprehensive overview of the proceedings.
Enjoy the Emmys, and may the best show win! Which show or actor do you think has a lock on an Emmy tonight?
