I've got this from Scoop's Alastair Thompson and thought it would be interesting to share here. It was  first published in print in AdMedia and offered to us as a guest post.

Hit the article to read it, then post comments/discuss here in this thread.

I wonder if it has anything to do with average weather conditions and temperature.

Well, seeing the majority of New Zealand access the Internet during the evening at TV prime time, while Australians do it early in the morning, I will say our TV programs are crap ;)

Good call xD

We don't even have a T.V at home, the misus watches all of her kiwi shows on demand. I was going to get one, then I got a 27" Computer Screen.

While all the numbers and stats are useful, I really wish that "research" did not descend to using pejorative terms like "evolved" as a headline. I mean on what basis is this evolution being measured?

I mean I could say that having more IOS devices compared to Android handsets make a country more evolved, or you could say the opposite,

Just cause people in NZ use the interweb more and do different things doesn't make us any more or less evolved than our neighbours across the ditch....
 
Now if we all start developing webbed feet and gills that might be another matter......

The article mentions an "accompanying graph" that doesn't seem to be present.
