We’re Running Out Of Memory


What did they say again the other day? I can’t remember….

Our memory doesn’t look so good, according to a recent research conducted by
Ian Robertson. 3000 people participated in a poll with quite shocking results:
the younger ones were less able than their elders to recall standard personal info.

When Robertson asked his subjects to tell them a relative’s birth date, 87 percent of respondents over age 50 could recite it, while less than 40 percent of those under 30 could do so. And when he asked them their own phone number, fully one-third of the youngsters drew a blank. They had to whip out their handsets to look it up.

Anyway, who needs a memory when we have Blackberries & Google…
