Some interesting points from a Sony executive presentation posted recently on YouTube:
- The first text message sent was in 1992. Today, the number of text messages sent/received each day exceeds the total population of the planet.
- It took the internet 4 years to reach a market audience of 50 million. Facebook took 2 years.
- There’s over 200 million users on MySpace (if it were a country it would be 5th largest)
- One out of 8 couples married in the USA last year met online
The number of internet devices in 2008 was 1,000,000,000. The cost of an eee Network PC in Australia is down to $375. Every school child should have one – but be quick we’re running out of IP addresses.
