Brits are forgetting how to write

About 80% of Brits are so married to their gadgets that they are forgetting how to write, according to a recent survey.

The YouGov poll found that people feel they just cannot get by without their favourite gadgets: only 16% of us write anything by hand in a week, and a few even admit to feeling powerless and frustrated if they’re not connected all the time.

This is a worrying conclusion if you also read the Nasa blog, which warns that in 2013 solar activity is going to clobber most of Earth’s high-tech kit.

Downtime suggests you keep your pencils sharp, and dust of the abacus.
