My Favourite Surfing Spot

With this P1 Wimax, gave me pleasure to surf internet everywhere at anytime I want...
Obviously 2 places where I always do a web surfing;

In the bedroom...
very peaceful..
when tired...or dizzy..just sleep...
very comfortable...hehe
In the office..
surf plus do some office activities..such as prepared student notes, quizzes etc
I got this information from one site telling me the truth behind of the internet usage either in the office or at home.
One study finds that people spend more time at home on the Internet for work purposes than they spend on the Internet at work for personal reasons.
The Center for e-Service at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business and Rockbridge Associates, Inc. co-sponsored the National Technology Readiness Survey (NTRS). The survey is based on a "representative, random sample of U.S. adults (18 years or older)", and was conducted using the telephone in December 2002. The survey sample was 501 adults and is quoted as having a statistical margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

The survey found that employees with Web access at both the office and at home, spend an average of 3.7 hours per week engaged in personal online activities while on the job.
However, they spend more time - an average of 5.9 hours per week - using the Internet at home, for work-related purposes.
The survey concludes that the Internet seems to have a net effect of shifting work to home more than personal activities to work.

The authors of the survey hypothesize that "many people may conduct personal business at work because the workplace offers more desirable infrastructure such as high-speed connections. And, most modern PCs still require an effort to boot up, so consumers may be more likely to conduct personal business on the job where their computer is on all day."
On the other hand, "computers give workers newfound freedom. For example, a person can now leave the job early enough to have dinner with the family, and finish up business on the Internet afterwards. This might include checking email, conducting research, ordering travel or purchasing things for work. Workers may also telecommute, and telecommuting may be spontaneous or temporary, such as staying at home in the morning to catch up without distractions."
As conclusions.
We can be sure that there will be more studies and information about people at work using the Internet. However, it seems that the results may be more complicated than we might predict. The line between work and home can become more blurred in the case of Internet usage, and productivity can be harder to track or predict. Employee's using the Internet for personal purposes at work is a reality that won't go away.
Ha..Ha...(exactly like me)
