The network Company whose CEO took a stab at Apple boss Steve Jobs as he was dying has done research that suggest 30% of Australian’s who have internet-enabled devices are not using them to access the internet.

Netgear CEO Patrick Lo said at an event in Sydney that it was his belief that the only way that Apple will abandon its principles and open up, will be if Jobs dies, which he did two weeks ago. Lo has not commented on the issue since Jobs death on October 5th.

At the time PCWorld described his comments as smug, cruel and confused and a man suffering emotional insecurity.

Lo said  “Once Steve Jobs goes away, which is probably not far away, then Apple will have to make a strategic decision on whether to open up the platform.”

In the past Netgear has been shunned by Apple.

In their latest PR spin Netgear has conducted a Connected Lifestyle Survey, in patnership with Galaxy research which suggests that the average Australian family has six digital devices in the home, but 30 per cent of internet-enabled devices (more than 18 million across Australia) were not being used to their full potential and were “actually costing Australian families”.

In an effort to plug Wi Fi purchases the Company claims that Australians are not making the most of our investment in the latest technology.

The research also found that Gen Y were the biggest collectors of digital content, storing 48 per cent more files than Baby Boomers. Despite all this digital data, 19 per cent of Gen Y survey respondents said they took no steps to back up their content.

“Despite online content being hailed as the ‘next big thing’ in multimedia, the survey results showed Australians remain restrained in their adoption of this technology. On average, Gen Y only stream or download 15 hours of digital video per month, while Baby Boomers download a mere five hours per month.”

In a recent independent survey conducted by testing group Tolly it was revealed that Netgear routers performed poorly when compared with a Belkin router.
