You Can Take Our TV and Cell Phones, But Don’t Touch the Internet

PewInternetProjectDon’t let the throngs of people clamoring for the new iPhone 3G S outside your neighborhood Apple store fool you. A new study from Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that in this time of economic hardship, people are giving up cell phones and TV.

One thing Americans aren’t willing to part with, however, is Internet service. In fact, even in the face of financial turmoil, more and more people are purchasing high-speed Internet.

A few key stats from the study:

Maes introduced a yet-unnamed product that, since its demo last week, has created a lot of buzz in the tech world for its far-reaching capabilities.

This wearable device, which Maes refers to as a “sixth sense,” contains a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. When we saw it, we immediately thought “Minority Report.” You remember the futuristic Tom Cruise/Colin Farrell sci-fi thriller where they never touched the computer, but rather manipulated the screens by simply moving their fingers in the air.

Firefox 3.0 Got the "Colbert Bump"

Back in June, Firefox 3.0 got some free publicity on its release date because Jonathan Zittrain mentioned it during his interview on the show, The Colbert Report. Zittrain is a professor and a researcher of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, which investigates Internet policies. His new book, The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It, focuses on what Zittrain believes to be disturbing web trends that threaten future innovation on the Internet.
