Do you ever find yourself eyeing that new iPhone 4S or Kindle Fire a fellow co-worker is using?
Captivate Network, a leading digital media company, recently surveyed more than 580 North American white-collar workers and found that 30% reported being “very envious” of their co-workers who use high-tech devices. Among this “envious” group, 60% consists of working moms over 30 years old with an annual household income of less than $125,000.
“With the prevalence of personal technology around the office, and the high frequency that it’s shared, it’s not surprising that tech envy occurs,” said Scott Marden, research director at Captivate Network.
Smartphones, tablets, e-readers and HDTVs were identified as respondents’ four favorite devices.
