One condo, four people and eight computers

It dawned on me this morning that my family has brought on vacation  1 laptop, 3 net books and and 4 smart phones with us on vacation.  In other words we have 8 computers for 4 people.  It seems like just yesterday we were sharing one PC in the basement with a dial up connection.  Now we each have a wireless computer and 3g connected smart phone. So I guess you could say we are a "connected" family.  The last time we were all on vacation together we took turns checking email on my wife's old dell 2600 laptop.  Now I use my phone more for email and text messaging than I do for phone calls.   So are we a normal/modern family? or an high tech anomaly?  What do you think?
