According to recent research, it seems that more and more Britons have come to rely on Blackberrys, Ipods and mobile phones to store information. Many people have come to rely on them as a “memory substitute”. Unfortunately the downside to this is that all this reliance on modern technology is making us forgetful. A recent survey found that only one in three people in the under 30’s age group could remember the phone nos. of friends before they had to look them up. In addition a worrying 5% couldn’t remember their own home address! Unfortunately when people use all this technology, they are not using their own memories. It’s obviously true what the experts tell us, the less you use your memory, the poorer it becomes. You have been warned!
