Intel Survey Finds "Outlet Outrage" and "Peeping-Techs" Are New Travel Norms

A new survey conducted by Intel Corporation and commissioned by TNS to explore American attitudes towards travel and technology finds U.S. vacationers feel anxious when traveling without their mobile computing device, angry when they cannot access power sources to charge these devices and annoyed when others take uninvited glimpses of their computer screens, potentially compromising their personal information.

The "Intel Survey: Tech Norms for Travelers," exposed the deepening love affair between travelers and their Ultrabookآ™ devices, laptops and tablets, revealing Americans feel an emotional bond with these mobile devices to the point of feeling calmer and less stressed when they have access to this technology while vacationing.
