Aussies Spend More Time Online than TV
Google CEO, Dr Eric Schmidt's visit to Sydney today just happened to coincide with the release of the latest Nielsen Online poll which shows Australians are spending around 13.7 hours per week surfing the net, while average TV viewing time was about 13.3 hours per week. For the first time ever Australians are spending more time online than watching TV. The poll comes just one week after Google head of television technology Vincent Dureau delivered his "long tail is even longer" address at the IPTV World Forum in London.
