Are you a dick, Ted?

At what price, if any, would you willingly give up your Web access? For 14 days, let’s say, a mere fortnight? Yahoo conducted a (very self-serving) survey which showed that 48% of respondents could not possibly forego this earthly pleasure for any such period. In fact, 750 people had to be approached before just 28 subjects were recruited to actually go through the rigors of it, despite being paid $950 for their participation. Not surprisingly, they uniformly regretted their decision, filling their experiment diaries with the bile and bitterness of frustration and withdrawal, rather than dreams of spending that thousand-buck bonus. Are we addicted to DSL? Are we forging new links (so to speak) or nuancing the negatives of the digital divide?

Δεν ξέρω τι αηδίες κάνουν αυτοί οι ξένοι. Εγώ θα σου το πω πιο λιανά. Πριν από λίγα χρόνια, όταν η πόλις μαστίζονταν από τα γνωστά "Ολυμπιακά έργα", υπήρξε ημέρα όπου είχα μείνει δίχως φως, νερό ΚΑΙ τηλέφωνο μαζί! Ευτυχώς, κράτησε λίγες ώρες. Διαφορετικά, τούτη τη στιγμή θα συνέχιζα την αορίστου χρόνου "εκδρομή" μου στα γύρω σπήλαια...

Λοιπόν, ένα πληκτρολόγιο με ενσωματωμένο "fuck it" key would be just what the doctor ordered!!

(Αυτή την πατέντα γιατί δε τη σκέφτηκε/υλοποίησε κανείς?)

'Εχω εντυπωσιαστεί από τα ελληνικά blogs που βλέπω εδώ, ωραίο να μαθαίνεις κάτι new every day :-)
