I think it’s because they’re more exposed to it here. I can think of a few examples quite easily — I’ve never stayed in a US hotel without free Internet access, that’s still rare in Australia. The rental car has GPS navigation, that’s unheard of in Australia. The front page of USA Today today mentions podcasting, which is something that I’m not even sure has hit prime time with bloggers yet.
They just seem much more willing to embrace new technologies and run with them.
