Surfing@Work

A court in New York has ruled that an employee caught surfing the web during working hours can’t be fired.

In his decision, Spooner wrote: "It should be observed that the Internet has become the modern equivalent of a telephone or a daily newspaper, providing a combination of communication and information that most employees use as frequently in their personal lives as for their work."

The only difference between the Net and the telephone / newspaper is that Net usage stats can be tracked accurately whereas it might be difficult to track the other two (especially when you are using a personal phone).
