NEW technology is making us forgetful, a survey has found.
The under-30s, who rely on phones, BlackBerrys and ipods to store information are the worst.
Only one in three could name four telephone numbers of friends before they had to look it up.
And a worrying five per cent of under 30s could not even remember their home address. But the over 50s did the best - recalling six numbers.
Prof Ian Robertson, expert in neuropsychology, said: "People are relying on technology for their memory. But the less you use your memory the poorer it becomes."
