A graphic in USA Today either yesterday or today showed that only 66
per cent of adults use a computer. I have seen other reports that of
those who use a computer many do not have an Internet connection and
of those who do many use it infrequently.

So many, perhaps a majority, of people never have heard of Google or
know what it means or is used for. You might as well be speaking
Greek to them.
