Remember the Y2K bug? You know, the one that cost billions of dollars (US$) to fix? Wasn't it strange that the countries that did not prepare for technological disaster had exactly the same experience as the countries that did? Right -- nothing happened.

Thank you. You covered it perfectly. Some may get upset, but you nailed it. People with out computers? What no library? Some schools will even let you use their systems. Many who are not connected don't want to or choose not to. Do you choose a $100 pair of shoes or a $200 outfit. You can buy a nice entery level PC with internet service for 2 pairs of shoes and an outfit. The other part is, what are the majority of people doing on the Internet? Who registers the most hits everyday? Probably not Foxnews, CNN, or ECommerceTimes unless they have gotten into porn or pirated music.
