Brits left cold by mobile internet

Having one of those "so what" moments in reaction to the

following story:

Brits left cold by mobile internet

"Apart from iPhone owners More than three-quarters of Britons don't use their phones to access the internet, a study has found. Worse, almost 40 per cent of smartphone owners - the very folk you'd expect would want to surf the web on the move - have never done so, or gave it a go once but won't do so again."


What's the story then? Not everyone uses everything that technology puts at their fingertips?  So all those 4-by-4 owners spend their weekends thrashing up and down mountain sides do they?Personally I find the mobile Web invaluable in the same way that having a wok and a spice rack is invaluable when I want to cook up a stir fry.  Doesn't mean that I don't use the local take-away  though. I do, and because they do it better.  As for the Iphone users angle – maybe it's because you can't do anything on the IPhone without being forced to pay for an add-on that you have to go find and install yourself.  I'll stick with the Smartphone afterall thanks.
