'Technology is changing my life.' Apprentices take advantage of technology, using the internet often to get needed information. New gadgets enhance their lives to a large extent, but there is still room for them to expand their usage. Apprentices are willing to learn and incorporate new technology into their lives, but they are sensitive to price and often make their purchase decisions based on this rather than desire alone. In fact, affordability is one of the few barriers that prevent this group from buying the newest technology.

'Technology is an important part of my life.' Journeymen have become skilled users of new technology. They are very confident with and knowledgeable about technology and willing to experiment with new features, benefits and devices. For Journeymen, the internet is a source of information, commerce, entertainment as well as a means of connecting with others. While cutting-edge electronic devices may help Journeymen organize their busy lifestyles, new technology is not always their top priority.
