Aloha Friday



Tough choice but I'd take a pass on my cellphone.

In a global survey ( I was paid USD2 for participating ) ,11 of 15 countries say they'd turn off the TV before they'd silence their mobile phone or log off the internet. Women, especially, will forgo their favourite shows, voting to do so by a greater percentage then men in all but 4 countries. Younger respondents are more likely to take a pass on TV, but older folks don't necessarily shun the online experience. In Singapore, not a single person over 45 voted to stop surfing.

Interesting statistics! I'd have to say I'd give up the tv in a second. Of course...the kids might not agree with that one!

This is an easy one for me. I'd turn off the TV! And I only say that "now" because we don't have regular TV in our home anymore. It's alot easier to do than people think.

TV for sure! I don't even remember the last time I watched it--maybe for weather the last time we had a tornado in the area.

I would turn off the TV! The only thing I ever get to see on TV is Max & Ruby or Spongebob :-)

Jennifer said...

Oh noooooo! I suppose I would have to say... TV! I can't live without internet or my phone! LOL! ;-)

Okay, in all honesty, I would choose the cell phone but only because I don't really use it. If I was giving it up to make a life change, I would say tv. (well, now that I have a blog, I am on the computer more.) Gosh lady, was this like a test in how much time we are spending with our families? I am feeling guilty! JUST KIDDING (kind of, did get me thinking!)

Bestes Buddie, I can easily turn them all off now. LOL
