Most hated technology: The Internet
Date: July 4, 2009
All signs point to a musician detesting modern technology when they prefer recording music on analogue tape instead of digitally. But that comes as no surprise to White Stripes fans, as lead singer Jack White has for years bemoaned everything from the Web to the use of smartphones: "I want to be part of the resurgence of things that are tangible, beautiful, and soulful, rather than just give in to the digital age...But when I talk to people about that, they just go, 'Yeah I know what you mean' and stare at their mobiles. The general vibe I get is, 'Quit being a drag. We're progressing here.'"
