Carson Daly Tests Producer Angie’s Technology IQ

According to a recent study, Americans are pretty clueless when it comes to technology.

The LA Times recently reported that when surveyed about common tech terms, 11% of people thought HTML, a special type of code used to create websites, was a sexually transmitted disease!

We consider ourselves to be a smart bunch here at AMP Radio. At least half of us graduated from community college!

With that said, Carson decided to quiz Producer Angie on her technology IQ. He asked her to define the following terms: HTML, gigabyte, motherboard, mp3, Blu-ray, and software.

Think those over for a minute. Do you know what all of those words mean?

Find out how Producer Angie fared:

Looks like we’ve got an Einstein in the house! Producer Angie went 5 for 5, but here are some more hilarious findings from the study:

  • 27% described a “gigabyte” as an insect commonly found in South America.
  • 42% said they believed a “motherboard” was “the deck of a cruise ship.”
  • 23% thought an “MP3” was a “Star Wars” robot.
  • 18% identified “Blu-ray” as a marine animal.
  • 15% defined “software” as comfortable clothing.
