In the year 2010:
1. HughesNet ads continue to explain the advantages of high-speed Internet over dial-up. "Download files in seconds! Check e-mail instantly!"
2. One third of American homes (93 million) still do not have high-speed Internet access.
19 percent of nonadopters called the Internet a "waste of time." [source]
3. Sony sold 143,500 PlayStation 2s in January and February.
2010 is a year that you cannot abbreviate verbally because it sounds awkward.
Oh-eight, oh-nine… ten.
The Ten Mets.
My Ten Dodge Charger.
The Class of Ten.
