We spend 4 hours on Christmas understanding gadget instructionsDecember 20th, 2010 - 5:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 20 (ANI): A study has revealed that we will spend more than four hours on Christmas Day unwrapping presents, removing packaging and struggling to understand instructions for new gadgets.
“Gadget rage is a common Christmas condition,” the Daily Express quoted Fran Sorci, of technology advice experts Geek Squad, as saying.
“The last thing you want is to spend hours setting everything up,” he said.
The study of 3,000 Britons found that toys, games consoles, mobiles, laptops and televisions cause the biggest headaches. (ANI)
