  • Yes I know several ... ... a few are just too poor and on welfare, a few are mentally handicapped and can not seem to understand them, a family I know are Hutterites and reject most technology on a religious basis, including electricity and therefore computers too, and several more people I know are Canadian natives that live in remote arctic wilderness areas without electricity.
  • One of my friends doesn't have a tv or a computer. She thinks technology ruins a lot of people, plus she is not home too often so it is just extra bills.

  • my best mate doesn't have one and thats because he's too tight to buy one!!...no seriously..he doesn't feel the need because he uses the computers at work when he needs to.
