Top three mobile application threats

A little-used newsgroup that calls for the annihilation of the Internet has received a lyrical endorsement from a Net user in Norway. Arve Kirkevik said people should walk mountains instead of being hooked up to the Net. He also called for TV to be scrapped. He aired his feelings in the newsgroup alt.destroy.the.internet. "Ten per cent of the Internet users develop Internet addiction disorder," he wrote. "Man is not meant to sit in front of a display unit all day long, therefore TV should also be abolished. "Walking tours in the mountains is a far better spare-time occupation and infinitely better for your health. It is said that Internet connect people, but instead of meeting each other, alienation from real contact with people is the outcome." Since alt.destroy.the.internet was created last month, it has only received three postings focused on destroying the Net. Seventeen were related to the pursuit of topless sport for women. The rest had nothing to do with anything in particular. ®
