i guess that's progress
A recent survey found that while workers spend an average of 8.3 hours a week surfing the Web from work, news sites have supplanted pr0n, gambling and shopping as the most popular destinations, with 23 percent reporting news as the most addicitive versus 18 percent for pr0n. (What about *cough*blogging*cough*?)
Experts speculated that companies monitoring or blocking pr0n or gambling sites might have contribute to the upswing in news' popularity. That doesn't explain all the people who come here looking for pictures of a certain Miss America contestant, though.
Many respondents also said they'd sooner give up coffee than the Internet. Ooooh...that'd be a tough choice.
