This is a short article, you have to read it. People get paid real money to come to conclusions like this? This gets the award for being the most obvious study on planet Earth.

I mean, are you serious? "... People who go online frequently are more familiar with these terms than users who spend less time surfing the Web" Wow, amazing.

Hell, I am just glad I can say URL without explaining myself these days. Now it seems all I do it explain what RSS is.
