23% of Americans Think an MP3 is a “Star Wars” Robot
When it comes to modern technology, I'm far from the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I feel much smarter since reading the results of this survey form the Los Angeles Times.
Now, I use a computer just about all day, every day, and for the longest time I felt bad that I understood how to use them, but not the 'why' of computers. Now, I have a different attitude about that. We all watch TV or listen to the radio and very, very few of us know how they work. I mean, other than the fact that it's magic.
See if you don't feel 'tech savvy' after reading this survey.
11% of people think HTML is a sexually transmitted disease.
12% of Americans think USB is an acronym for a European country.
18% think Blu-ray is a marine animal.
23% think MP3 is a "Star Wars" robot.
27% think a gigabyte is an insect found in South America.
42% think a motherboard is the deck of a cruise ship.
And finally, 61% say it's important to have strong knowledge of technology in this day and age.
Feel like a computer genius now?
