Post Survey Says Web Has Little Use In Their Lives! Do You Believe It?

A little under one-third of U.S. households have no Internet access and do not plan to get it, with most of the holdouts seeing little use for it in their lives, according to a survey released Friday.

Let me guess how those hold outs might be

The same folks that are on the public dole ? Who want their government entitlements ! Energy supplement checks ? I think they are called road kill on the internet highway They will never be on line and they will be left behind doing what they do best ! Nothing :nono

I wouldn't say that entirely. My grandmother is an elderly retiree who put many decades into hard work. She doesn't have Internet access because she doesn't know much about computers. She has never been in a chat room or forum. She does all of her banking the old-fashion way. She entertains herself via television.

There are those who just don't have a use for the Internet because they have yet to experience its benefits. There are things that would benefit my life, but I neglect them because I have yet to appreciate them.

That's like saying one-third of US households are computer illiterate. I would believe that. It is difficult to own a computer (and keep it up to date) without Internet access nowadays. So I'm thinking these household also have no computer and do not plan to get one.
