The desktop on my office computer opens with my special icons for email, word, etc. and on the right hand side, there's a running tab of news headlines, constantly updated throughout the day. I can click on them as I chose . .well, or not, if I'm overwhelmingly busy at work. I know lots of people that cruise headlines all the day, even though they are working. Some people go outside for a smoke or take a "p" break, others check out the news. It's a brave new world and it would be a hard call to say that someone cruising the headlines is working any less hard than another that spent(or spends) most of their day yakking on the phone to people discussing the weather, news and daily events.
