According to a recent report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, the overwhelming majority of Americans (92%) use multiple platforms to get their daily news with the internet now being the third most-popular news platform.
Canadians are well aware of the tremendous achievements by our Olympic athletes but another incredible achievement is the telecommunications network put into place the Vancouver Olympic organization.
The Number Resource Organization (NRO), the coordinating group that oversees the allocation of Internet number resources around the world, announced today that less than 10 percent of available IPv4 addresses remain unallocated.
The group is warning that with so few IPv4 addresses remaining, immediate planning for the implementation of the next-generation Internet Protocol (IPv6) is now required or the world could run out of internet addresses.
A telephone survey conducted by Ipsos Reid has found that over four in five Canadians (82%) now have Internet access at home.
The researchers say this represents a 6% increase from the second quarter of 2008 and a 4% increase from six months earlier.
