10% of Users Drink When Gadgets Stop Working

10% of Users Drink When Gadgets Stop Working

From my pals at Gizmodo:

This just in! Malfunctioning technology causes anger! That’s according to a new British survey, which finds that 73% of people have hurled a gadget in a fit or gage, while 75% admit to swearing or losing their temper. A really desperate 10% admits to turning to booze when their gadget isn’t working. Only 10%?

What we need is a study matching gadget problems to specific drinks. Those with broken ThinkPads probably drink doubles of Scotch, while I imagine the busted iPod user is morosely swilling a warm Heineken.
