Source: IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) – In an age when most information is just a quick search away, some corridor residents say that we’ve become too dependent on our gadgets. But the reality is, it’s hard to go through the day without being at least a little tech savvy. "It would be like somebody who didn't bring their hearing aids that day,” said IT Professional Greg Johnson. “You're going to be out of communication with people because that's how people communicate." The US Census numbers show Iowans are more connected to the internet than other states, but many in the state still struggle to learn how to best use it. "Technology fluency has shifted sort of a job requirement to a life skills requirement,” said Johnson.
