How The World Spends Its Time Online [INFOGRAPHIC]

The web is diverse and users obviously log on for different reasons. From reading news, socializing on social networks, email and search, advertisers are always trying to understand where people usually spend their time on the web.

Using data provided by a recent Nielsen study, the infographic below provides exactly that.

So, which web services are used most actively? Email and search are the answers. More than 4 out of 10 users are using emails or/and search engines when connected. This data also explains the boom in search engine marketing over the past decade, whereby Google is the undisputed leader in this segment.

Getting news is also one of the main reasons why people log on to the web as users find it more convenient to consume news digitally.

Does the Internet Need a ‘Kill Switch’?

A proposed bill could effectively give the president an Internet “kill switch.”

Senator Joseph Lieberman has proposed the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act (PCNAA), a bill that would give the president the power to control or even shut down the Internet in emergency situations. Citing the need for cybersecurity, Lieberman said in a press release that the U.S.’s “economic security, national security and public safety are now all at risk from new kinds of enemies — cyber-warriors, cyber-spies, cyber-terrorists and cyber-criminals.”

The bill requires that U.S.-based companies such as Google and Yahoo, as well as broadband providers and software firms, comply with any and all measures that the government sees fit in an emergency.

Technology trade association, TechAmerica, has already expressed worry at the level of control the bill would grant the president if passed — levels that could have “unintended consequences.” Other countries are also decrying the bill, fearing the impact on their own security if the U.S. were to shut down essential parts of the Internet.

Verizon iPhone Rumor Refuses to Die

If you want an iPhone, AT&T is the only wireless game in town. And if you think Apple is shooting itself in the foot by limiting the iPhone to a single network, the numbers suggest otherwise. The Cupertino company on Wednesday said there have been more than 600,000 pre-orders for the new iPhone 4, the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day. Be that as it may, why then do rumors persist that Apple’s iPhone is coming to Verizon?
