Some Trends…

In reading the most recent BusinessWeek, I encountered some intriguing statistics:

  • Last year we produced more transistors than grains of rice (and surprisingly, we can produce a transistor at a lower cost than a grain of rice)
  • Over 2 billion mobile phones are in use worldwide, compared with 820 million PC’s
  • Online activity is fairly level until the 65+ age category, where it drops from 74% to 32% (the highest is the 19-29 age group, at 88%)
  • In the US, the size of the blog-reading audience is at 20% of the size of the audience of newspaper readers.
