Coming soon: One medium, on-line

This fascinating study shows that broadband Internet users watch TV two hours less a week than those who aren't connected. Some might say that on-line time isn't any more productive than boob-tube time, but it's at least not as passive. Such distinctions will mean less as the Internet becomes faster and encompasses both TV and movie watching, radio listening and who knows what else. Interestingly, Internet use seems to slightly affect the time people spend reading but not the time they spend listening to the radio.
