Phooey on the Web?

Here's a fascinating story. Seems a Dallas technology company did a survey and found that 29 percent of U.S. homes don't have Internet service and don't plan to get it. It's not a matter of money. Most of these people just see little point to having access to the Web. 44 percent of them say they are not interested in anything on the Internet. Only 17 percent said they don't know how to use it and 14 percent said they used it at work so they didn't need it at home.

Fascinating. It's easy to fall into believing that just everybody has Internet access these days, but almost a third of Americans say they're just not interested. I don't know if I'm sorry for them or mildly envious.
