Lost your iPhone? You’re not alone

by Evil HR Lady on December 18, 2012

It’s Monday morning, do you know where all your electronic devices and data are? If not, you’re not alone. Fridays and Saturdays at 6:00 p.m. in December are when you are most likely to lose your smartphone, laptop or stack of business paperwork, according to a new survey by Mozy. As people transition from the work day to holiday party season, they are particularly likely to drop or forget their electronic equipment. In fact, 70 percent of people have lost a smartphone, laptop or other electronic storage device in the past 12 months.

I don’t buy the “70% have lost in last 12 months” bit. Of all the people I know, and I feel they are pretty representative of normal, no one has lost a cell phone or laptop in the last year. Maybe one or two thumb drives.

I’m curious what the source of this statistic is.

Thumb drives count as electronic storage devices.

Agreed, that’s why I mentioned them. But look at your own friends, coworkers, acquaintances; have anywhere near 70% lost something like that in the last 12 months?

Maybe I just hang with especially responsible people. :-)

I thought it was ridiculous as well. But then I realized that my husband left his laptop at security at an airport. (He got it back.) And I lost a cell phone (a dumb one, but still, what a pain) on a tram (didn’t get it back).

I imagine thumb drives and such is what brings the number up high. Start asking around.
