Do you get tech separation anxiety?

Apparently the 'majority of the population' in Britain suffer from extreme anxiety when parted from their gadgets. Is this true? Are you? Are your kids? [Source:]

I experience this on occasion but I can also feel the complete opposite. If I am expecting an important email, call or just feel I may need to contact somebody for some reason I can become anxious without my phone or some sort of device (even though emails don't disappear, I have voicemail and payphones still exist).

On occasion however I can get completely sick of technology. I am forever receiving messages and emails about a million different things: sometimes I want to put a sledgehammer through everything. On these occasions I usually find doing some exercise or taking a walk in the country remedies the situation nicely.

Definitely, and also a bad case of broadbanddownitis a while back - not just the tech itself, but if you're not online, it just isn't happening.

Though, must admit, on day rate for mobile data, it would take a lot to make me activate a day's charges, when there's a perfectly good broadband at home.
