Internet? Meh, say 23% of American households

John Moe Nov 10, 2010

Maybe it’s too easy to think that the internet is a part of everyone’s lives. But then you see a report like this new one from the Department of Commerce and you’re not so sure. 23% of people in the survey say they just don’t want or need the internet every day in their own homes. The most popular reason why not? They’re just not interested.
