What happens in an Internet minute?

Guess what happens in an Internet minute? A new study, by chipmaker Intel, found that every minute:

  • more than 204 million e-mails are sent; 
  • 47,000 apps are downloaded;
  • retail giant Amazon rings up around £55,000 in sales;
  • around 20 million photos and 6 million Facebook pages are viewed;
  • we watch 1.3 million video clips on YouTube;
  • around 20 people have their identities stolen.

The study also predicts that by 2015 the number of networked devices on the Earth will be double the number of people.
