According a Daily Mail story about a new Google survey, folks in the UK surf the Net more than they watch TV. As amazing as it sounds, residents in the UK spend 164 minutes online every day compared to 148 minutes watching television. The survey, which covered more than 1000 adults, also found that men are the biggest Internet users, averaging 172 minutes a day compared to 156 minutes a day for women. Most spent much of their time on the Net shopping.

No surprise there. You can now download your shows, watch movies on your computer, check the news on your computer. Pretty much everything!
