THE NUMBERS REPORT

  • In ten years, the average home with two teenagers will have 50 devices connected to the Internet, according to a report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation. We counted 13 in our home. That’s only three more than the national average. But we’ve yet to connect our washer and dryer, our plants or our posture to an Internet app. (Some people have!)
  • Jobs related to Android phones shot up 20 percent in the first quarter of 2013, compared to 11% for iPad and five percent for iPhone-related jobs, according to Freelancer.com. Email marketing jobs are up 21 percent and business process outsourcing or “BPO” jobs, jargon for jobs like handling tech support or accounting — are up 113 percent.
