Recently, the Russ Parr Morning Show cited a study by information technology research company Gartner, Inc. that included a surprising fact about young adults: 46% of 18-24 year olds would rather have internet access than a car. The same study was referenced on scoopthemag.com and quoted Theo Koslowski, lead automotive analyst for Gartner, as saying, “The iPhone is the Ford Mustang of today.”
“I disagree,” senior Adam Zalewski said. “I would much rather have a car because I can get out and go places.”
Junior Sam Bechtol does not feel the same. “The internet opens up so many doors and there are other options for transportation than your own car,” Bechtol said. Although he says having his own car would be convenient, he could get by without one.
“If I had to choose between internet access and a car I would pick the internet,” senior Rebecca Heise said. “I could easily get rides to where I need to go but I don’t know what I would do without social sites like Facebook and Stumble upon.”
If the option were given to you, what would you choose?
