Gathering pace...

US digital publisher NXTbook Media reported a 254 percent increase in sales and 359 percent more traffic to its digital magazines in 2006. Additionally, the number of pages viewed per NXTbook increased nearly 10 percent.

NXTbook CEO Michael Biggerstaff said in a statement that the amount of video streamed from the company’s digital magazine editions increased to hundreds of gigabytes per month. “We're streaming the amount of video each week that we saw in the entire year of 2005," he said.

Interesting. Particularly the amount of video being served - which is undoubtedly down to broadband usage increasing worldwide.
