European Internet Usage up sharply
Well I donīt want to beat the dying horse more then necessary but a recent report suggests that people are looking more and more to the internet for their news and entertainment fix (and therefore must be spending less time in front of that massmedia thingy that will suffer in the short future). 24 percent of all people asked in a recent study (german) say that they are spending more then 16 hours weekly in front of the net. The usage time has increased 17% when compared to 2004. Mighty numbers with lots implications. Twelve percent of the users in Europe load Podcasts at least once a month.
Oh and the man on the picture wonīt be converted so fast with his 5000 television channels.
