	PDAs do reflect big spenders, so would be a priority
	for a place in the top 80%.  On the other hand, they 
	are so different from desktops that someone targetting
	them would probably produce an alternative page, which
	would increase the cost of supporting them and reduce
	their priority.  They are also much in a minority.

	People with 14.4K modems will be put in a similar class
	to those with text only browsers.  They are a small minority,
	and there is circumstancial evidence that they are not 
	spending on technology goods.  I think they would be
	classed as people to ignore when designing the site.
