The Internet can make you smarter.

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Though it may not always feel like it, the Internet is actually making us smarter, at least according to a new survey of scientists, business leaders, and technology developers.

A collection of 900 experts interviewed for the Pew Internet report The Future of the Internet IV, released last Friday, were asked their views on how the Internet is affecting us–now and in another 10 years. Though most felt that the Internet can and would improve our reading, writing, and overall grasp of knowledge, some were reluctant to jump on that bandwagon.

“Three out of four experts said our use of the Internet enhances and augments human intelligence, and two-thirds said use of the Internet has improved reading, writing, and rendering of knowledge,” said Janna Anderson, study co-author and director of the Imagining the Internet Center, in a statement. “There are still many people, however, who are critics of the impact of Google, Wikipedia, and other online tools.”

Windows7 is a winner!

After conducting an analysis of actual inventory data collected from more than 450,000 corporate PCs between November 2008 and August 2009, Softchoice (via ComputerWorld) has concluded that 88 percent of them meet the minimum system requirements to run Windows 7. The sample consisted of 248 individual organizations representing a wide range of industries from across the United States and Canada, including financial, health care, manufacturing, and education. In comparison, when Windows Vista was going to be released, Softchoice found that only 50 percent of corporate PCs were able to support the minimum system requirements.
