Technophobia is the fear or dislike of advanced technology or complex devices, especially computers. This Forbes article reveals that:
  • Christopher Walken doesn't use cell phones or e-mail.
  • Simon Cowell says he doesn't know how to work a computer.
  • Paul McCartney has admitted he doesn't know how to use ATMs and prefers writing letters over e-mail for "aesthetic" reasons.
  • Elton John suggested that the Internet be shut down for five years to spark better quality art and music.
  • Orlando Bloom has revealed that he doesn't e-mail or own a computer, because he "just [doesn't] want to deal with it."
  • Larry King says he has never done an Internet search
  • Actor Casey Affleck said his fear that cell phones cause cancer caused him to pitch his handset into the Hudson River. But within a few days he bought a new one.
Do you know anyone who refuses to use a computer, cell phone or some other techno device? I'll bet the list doesn't include HDTVs :)

  1. I have a neighbor who refuses to have an air conditioner. Does that count?
