Some of these stats don't suprise me.
For example, I don't have an iPod, although I have a b-day coming up next month, so I hope to change this soon :-). I also use a modem. I do use an RSS reader (Pluck), thanks to Andy, but I'm still not sure exactly what it is. To top it all off, I haven't use Digg, ever (nor can I claim to actually know what Digg is).
Apparently, the only things that redeem me from being a backwards technophobe :-) are that I do have a blog and I do have internet access.
But really, I think what these stats show is that there is a never-ending learning curve when it comes to technology, and that even if you're at the cutting edge on some parts of it, you could be light years behind in other aspects. And that's okay.
I remember 6 months ago when someone tried to explain to me what a blog was, and I was like, "Yeah, right, whatever..." I didn't get it then. Now I do.
We all learn at our own speeds, and when our minds are ready to accept the next tidbit of technology, then it opens wide enough for us to take it in.
