Only 9% have of the average person – including grandmas and grandpas – have never heard of adware or RSS? Totally unbelievable. Did they do this survey on a university campus?

AC, they did it on "internet users"... so at least they had a basic understanding of the online world. That's why this figure is rather high.

Ah, sorry, I missed that. However, I still find the numbers doubtful. A term like "podcasting" is just not used enough on the Web to account for that many people who have at least heard of it. Or people didn't want to admit their lack of knowledge. Oh, well.

The only thing that would let me doubt the inaccuracy was the spelling error :) "Please tell me if have a good idea what the term means"
