Not that you really needed another reason to want an iPad, but research now shows that technology actually makes us happier.

A study out of the UK has found that those who have more access to technology, particularly technology with Internet access, report greater levels of satisfaction in areas such as work, social life, and home life.

Women in particular reported that the more access to technology they had, the happier they felt.

By collecting data from 39 countries around the world, the researchers concluded that “IT has a direct positive impact on life satisfaction, even when controlling for income and other factors known to be important in determining well-being.”

I for one always suspected my iPhone made me happier but now that research verifies it, perhaps I can justify that iPad after all.  (via HotHardware)
