Computer has become an important part of human society. We need computer so much in our life. For example, for communication, we need it to send email or to call through VOIP system. In addition, to be in mylot, I also need computer to browse the Internet. So it's very important for us. For me, I spend a lot of time with my computer, and sometimes for a whole day.But usually, I spend around 7 hours to do many with computer such as downloading game, software, music, and e-books, chatting with friend, communicating with mylot uses and so on. So what about you?

I not for sure how long I spend infront of my computer because I get off about three times a day. I like to take a break because it is hard on your back if you sit to long in front of your computer.

Hello, I do every thing you've said and it has been a big part in everyone's life at one time or other. I remember the first time I used the computer and I was very nerves to buy or talk to anyone. Since I work out side of the home I only use it maybe 2 hours a day but on the weekends I use it a lot. You can learn a lot on the internet for just about anything a person could want to know and it bets going to the library in the winter months or the rain plus you wont run up your phone bill talking to my family member in Iraq, It's awesome to be able to do that an not have a hundred dollar phone bill.

Hi, I think most of us do the same thing. You must be joking by spending 7 hours in your computer. Do you suffer any illnesses? Can't believe it...

i use computer daily for more than 10 hours ( i don't want to type 12 coz a lot of users are saying this and i know they are not wrong, i am also doing the same. this is my job of course) so one who don't believe this he/she can test this any time. from 9 am to 10 or 10:30pm.(lunch time 1 to 2:30)

Hi darmakawasa..i thought it was an online gaming company. was the game about tasting ? anyway, 7 hours is not even enough for some people. I myself would spend my weekdays almost the whole day. Even if my eyes are so sleepy, I still would be able to surf and browse the internet. I even eat in front of my computer. I don't think it is an illness. It is just addiction. If you consider addiction as an illness due to its definition to society as something outside the norm, then I guess you are correct. People who are so addicted at their computers for internet surfing does have an illness.

On average, I spend about 8 hours a day on the computer and that's if I'm working at my other jobs outside of the home. If I am not working at my other job, I can spend about 12 to 15 hours on the computer. Of course I take breaks. I get up and walk around, do some chores, etc. at least every 45 minutes to an hour.

hi there, computer is very important for me...I would say that on an average day I probably spend anywhere from one to four hours on the computer. I do a lot of online earning sites so going through all the ones I am a part of normally takes a while. I also do research and stuff like that on the computer plus using the computer is just a great way to kill time. also i learn some things here online.

Well, computer has done so much benefits in the life of each one of us. I sit for many hours in front of my computer every day. sometimes I have my food in front of the computer especially if I am rushing some articles to submit to the writing sites where I write. Computer has become an indispensable tool for me since I had learned to use a computer. I am older than most of you at my age when I am 48 but I use the computer like a kid who is computer addict. I think part of this is because I want to earn money writing and making paper works for my students. I love tapping the keys and coining words to be able to make a nice article to submit online for readers to read. I think the shortest time a day I spend in my computer is two hours and I could site for more than 10 hours if I am not at work.

Wow, it's nice to see that I'm not the only one that spends a lot of time on the internet! For me, it depends on the day. But it rarely is anything under 3 hours. I've noticed lately that even when I'm hanging out with my friends "irl" (in real life), I'm often thinking about my online friends and activities. I think I need to cut down :(

I am on the computer several hours a day, atleast 8 hours. Looking for employment, surfing the web, checking e-mail and playing games. My roommate and i have accounts on a game playing site that we play in the morning and in the evening. We also play alot on the week-ends. We also learn alot of things using the internet. You have a vast system full of things you can learn that you need or want to learn. It's great!!!
