I Love You, Honey, But Not As Much As The Internet (or Twitter)
from the how-sweet dept
An in-no-way-biased survey from a German broadband trade group says that 84 percent of German twentysomethings would rather give up their partner or a car than their internet connection. No word on the breakdown of that 84 percent between partner and car, but given the fantastic experiences I’ve had on German public transport, I’ve got to imagine cars are probably much easier to give up. Although if you ditch your partner, you can always find a new one online, though just eight percent of respondents said they’d done so. Don’t buy it? Just check out the travails of recently split up celebrity couple Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer. Apparently she dumped him because Mayer would make time for Twitter, but not for her.

Was the survey done by the same people that discovered that 80% of German males have slept with their best friend?
I have to say, I almost agree! In fact, I’d give up my computer before I gave up my broadband!
Without providing either the survey methodology or referencing the source for this article, it’s as bad as the sort of reasoning that is usually criticized by techdirt.
Show your readers a little more respect, please.
No no no, you got the Mayer/Aniston thing wrong. She said he was twittering himself, which is something completely different, I can assure you.
Seriously? Germany’s internet connections aren’t exactly amazing anyways, except perhaps in a few limited areas. When I lived there (as a US military member) I cancelled my DSL account with T-Com for a five-month deployment. When I got back, there was a waiting list for DSL in my town… this being a 384 kbps connection that cost around 50 EUR (just under US$70) per month, limited to around 5 GB/month of traffic. I ended up getting HSDPA through O2, for half the cost, with higher speed, and no monthly limit.
To me, it’s kind of sad when the cellular option is faster and cheaper than the landline can offer.
Love is tough so give love a gift
There is no place like home

People now just love social networks, whatever happen, before doing anything they tweet and FB it, even when there is earthquake.
