More Than Half Plan to Reduce Tech Purchases
As the economy continues to struggle, over 50 percent of U.S. households plan to "cut back" on high-tech purchases this year. That's according to research released Monday by Forrester Research, as cited by the Wall Street Journal.
When asked if they would spend more or less overall on tech, 51 percent said "less," 44 percent the same, and just 5 percent said "more."
To a variety of questions in the online survey, taken in November, more than 60 percent of customers answered "less likely" on the question of whether they were more or less likely to purchase a smart phone, satellite radio, hand-held videogame player or portable GPS, while less than five percent of respondents called themselves "more likely."
