Computer Active (UK) - - News -

Dig­i­tal me­dia play­ers like Google’s Chrome­cast and Ap­ple TV have been added to the bas­ket of items used to cal­cu­late the UK’S rate of in­fla­tion. They’ve re­placed dig­i­tal TV re­ceivers and recorders like the Free­view box. Dig­i­tal cam­corders have also been re­moved, as peo­ple in­creas­ingly record videos on phones in­stead. Items are added and re­moved ev­ery year to re­flect chang­ing pub­lic tastes and habits. Read more on the Of­fice for Na­tional Sta­tis­tics’ site: www.snipca. com/27305.
