Submission + - Does vacation mean quality time with a laptop? (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "So the summer vacation season is upon us. And what will you bring along? Well if you're like a lot of other geeks out there you're gonna pack up the old laptop and cellphone and hit the beach. A study out today says one in five people carried laptop computers and 80 percent who said they brought along their cell phones on their most recent vacations. The AP-Ipsos poll says many people are interrupting their unwinding time to check in at the office and, even more so, to keep up with the social buzz. About one in five of 1,000 randomly chosen adults said they did some work while vacationing, and about the same number checked office messages or called in to see how things were going, the poll showed. Twice as many checked their e-mail, while 50% kept up with other personal messages like voice mail. http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/1577 4"
