Pew: Mobile usage sucks users deeper into online world

A new report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project finds that  the more people use wireless devices (smart phones) to access the online world, the more they want to.

Mobile connectivity is now a powerful differentiator among technology users. Those who plug into the information and communications world while on-the-go are notably more active in many facets of digital life than those who use wires to jack into the internet and the 14% of Americans who are off the grid entirely.

Did you get that last statistic — 14% of Americans who are off the grid entirely?

That means three of out of every 20 Americans are not using the Internet at any level! No email. No surfing. No Facebook or LinkedIn.

Know anyone like that under the age of, say, 85?
