Cell phones render household items obsolete 


There's a litany of products killed by Apple, but a new poll by CouponCodes4u.com, a coupon code website in the US, finds that the iPhone and others of its ilk has found that cell phones are replacing many traditional household items, with the average American no longer possessing items such as calendars, calculators, alarm clocks or landlines.
 
CouponCodes4u.com carried out a poll as part of ongoing research into the lifestyles of consumers around Americans. Approximately 2,362 adults from around the US took part and respondents answered questions about the gadgets and items around their home. All those taking part were cell phone users.
 
Those taking part in the study were shown a list of devices and items normally found around the home and were told to select the items that they felt they no longer used due to the same functions being available on their cell phone.

According to the study by CouponCodes4u.com, the top 10 items from the home that have been rendered redundant due to cell phones are as follows: alarm clock (89%), calculator (775); calendar (61%), address book (52%), landline (44%), MP3 player/iPod (38%); laptop/desktop (29%); camera (13%), notepad (13%) and watch (11%).

When asked what they thought cell phones might render obsolete in the future, 57% of those taking part said credit/debit cards and 45% of those poll said handheld games consoles. Thirty-six percent said "SAT Navs" wouldn’t be around much longer thanks to cell phones.
