The Penny Drops is the theme of this year's Convergence Survey, researched by London-based law firm Olswang LLP -- where IPKat team member Jeremy is IP consultant -- together with YouGov. According to the data, Apple iPhoners are among the heaviest users of digital content and are also more willing than other consumers to pay for a wide range of types of content. They are heavy users of services such as on-demand TV - not only on their phones but also on other devices, such as the main TV at home.
