People prefer Wi-Fi connectivity to iPods

A new study by the Wi-Fi Alliance claims that wireless internet access is more popular and desired than even the hot selling Apple iPod digital music players.

Considering the source of the study, not many people might agree with their findings but it is indeed true that not many people would like to give away the capability to connect to internet wirelessly.
The Wi-Fi Alliance conducted this study along with Kelton Research and found that almost 80% of survey respondents said that they would rather give up their Ipods rather than their home wireless local area networks.

Similar number of users were even prepared to give up their home telephone connections for wireless internet connectivity at home! A lot of people said that they end up doing work from home 2-3 per week and they love the convenience of using the power of wireless connectivity.
