Re: Digital Divide
For those with a "higher level", there is a question of apathy too--because anticipating what they actually desire is a bit of a challenge.   I was thinking about it in the recent reporting,for instance, about Apple actually getting on the curved cell phone bandwagon.

Re: Digital Divide
I'd be curious how much average income vs. age vs. network quality/availibility vs. ubiquity (e.g., countries where technology is more dominant in their education systems or specific industries) & other cultural qualities impact the results on a global level.

Re: Digital Divide
@faryl - Indeed, though I suspect we'll see the same trends, but far more pronounced. Norway is a pretty advanaced market -  if we compare it to certainly the emerging world, but even some of the less advanced EU markets, like a Greece for example, I would expect we would find the level of technology fear would be much higher.

Re: Finding Telenor
@Ariella - it's a good point, and certainly the market must decide how useful or necessary a technology really is. But I think this study was more focused on technologies that have been widely adopted. So it's not the next "big" thing, but rather basic Internet navigation and usage, as well as using smartphones and basic apps like maps and calendars. Those are the areas that Telenor's education initiatives are aimed at. It's taking families that for (I'm guessing) economic reasons haven't got online and senior citizens intimidated by the Internet and smartphones.

Re: Digital Divide
It would be interesting to see a similar sort of survey done on a more global level.

Re: Digital Divide
I found the gender-related gap particularly interesting. I understand that females make up a smaller portion of the STEM industry, but it's interesting that there's a significant gap on the consumer side as well.

Re: Digital Divide
It may well be a myth--but the Grand Canyon is ever so part of the reality as I see it not just locally--but also Worldwide due to the agitation that the majors have in extending their reach.
