Submission + - Sweden Unseats US as Top Technology Using Country (

eldavojohn writes: Reuters brings word of professor Leonard Waverman's annual Connectivity Scorecard study that looks at nationwide usage of telecommunications technologies (networks, cellphones and computers). For the first time the United States is not number one, they are number two. It's a tight race for number one, closely following the US is Norway, Denmark, Netherlands and Finland (in that order). The report doesn't look just at technological aspects of telecommunications but also concentrates on the economic gain and usefulness of that technology. This causes countries like Korea to finish eleventh (not as connected as they could be) but still rank near the top on the Digital Opportunity Index. The full 2009 report [PDF] can be found at
