Are you obsessed with the latest technology and have a burning desire to own every new device? Or are you a prolific Tweeter or TV addict?

The study also found that the UK has become a nation of geeks, spending more than £50 billion a year on technology products such as phones, tablets, TVs, laptops and other devices.
