I heard on the radio that millions of people are filing their taxes by computer from home and I also read there was a huge increase of sales over the Christmas holiday via Internet.
It got me to thinking.
How common is a computer at home?
I realized that all of my friends have computers at home, with email addresses. Even my 80 year old aunt just got an email thingie from her kids for Christmas this year.
The only people I know who DON’T have a computer are a few older friends in Europe, and three elderly women at work who work on computers all day, live alone, and see no reason to have one at home. (They do, however, use the Intenet at work to look up things and order stuff on-line.)
So to answer my own question:
Only about 1% of the people I know do NOT have a computer at home.
