: The Pew Internet & American Life center releases no end of great, if sometimes frightening, studies of the online us. Take a look at this chart from the latest, which looks at the technology and media consumption of relatively techy segments of the population. They asked which of these media it would be “hard to give up.”
Note poor ol’ print down at the bottom of the list. Most would sooner give up newspapers and magazines than PDAs.
With that in mind, read the post below this…
: UPDATE: Tom Mangan, in the comments, says this is apples/kumquat comparison. Fair enough. Also note that the PDA question was asked only of people who have PDAs; the people who don’t have them would give them up easily. Still, I was depressed at the low number of people who would find it hard to give up their newspaper. That’s the sad part.
