Considering we live in the so-called "Digital Age," you would think most people are pretty well-versed when it comes to technology! However, a recent study found that was NOT the case!!
A website known as vouchercloud decided to put Americans to the test by giving 2,392 men a women ages 18 and up a list of both technology-related and non-technology-related terms. Participants then had to try and pick the correct definition of each term out of three possible options, completely unaware of what they were being tested on.
42% defined "Motherboard" as the deck of a cruise ship
23% defined "MP3" as a Star Wars robot
18% defined "Blu-ray" as a marine animal
15% defined "Software" as comfortable clothing
12% defined "USB" as an acronym for a European country
A couple different websites have question the validity of the survey, however vouchercloud claims that the results are 100% real!!
Wow! Apparently tech-talk does not compute in the states!
