Bitbuzz, a hotspot operator in Dublin, conducted a user survey to find out more information about its customers and came up with some interesting findings: Women make up 45 percent of Bitbuzz users. Bitbuzz also found that 69 percent of the Wi-Fi users also have broadband access at home and 52 percent of them have portable MP3 players. Those two items definitely indicate that Wi-Fi users here are technology early adopters, especially given how hard it can be to get broadband access in Dublin. Bitbuzz also found that 26 percent of its users connect via Macs and 28 percent use PDAs. That figure is especially surprising to me because I have a general impression that while more and more PDAs ship with Wi-Fi these days, not many people really use it. I must be wrong about that, at least among the population of PDA users here in Dublin.

>not many use PDAs
I do, most of the time. Much faster than my laptop. Right now I'm at Starbucks on 42 Street with my iPAQ 2215 - of course. One other person here: a woman (!) with a laptop. So much for stereotypes.
