People to spend more time online now

Face it – many of us spend a great deal of time online already, whether social networking on Twitter & Facebook, or even this very site you’re reading now.

Well, apparently Google and Hasbro will be taking quite a bit of many people’s time over the next four months – as they launch Monopoly City Streets this week. Even though this is causing quite a buzz this week, I might even scrape some time to check it out myself.

Will you be playing?
