A lot of great information but it lacks context for the factoids. For instance the 50 million audience number and year well yes very cool and all that but the population changed over the ensuing decades growing larger when radio first came out 50 million was a larger part of the population then when iPods reared their heads. nothing saying that is wrong or bad just that the information presented is more complicated.

Huh. I actually saw the change in population as part of their point, rather then a flaw in their factoid. But I think you very neatly explain their point in that section.

They are talking about how we live in exponential times, and how things like the Ipod, text messages, google, and other technology of this day and age is interacting on a scale unheard of in previous decades. They could very easily have ended that section with a short display of how like our technology, the population has grown exponentially too.

The massive explosion in world population is the major factor in the exponential growth of the technology numbers they site in this part. It would have been neat to see them do something on it to tie their earlier section on the growth of china and india into the technology section.

I think you've accurately pointed out they missed an opportunity to display just how much the world has been changed by that population growth. I can almost visualize the graphics for it now.
