The personal computer was supposed to revolutionize the way we used our time. By having access to endless amounts of information at a moments notice, wasted time was supposed to be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, though that doesn’t seem to be the case. On average, adults waste about sixteen minutes every day waiting for their slow computers to catch up with them. That’s sixteen minutes that are slowly adding more and more frustration to our daily lives and draining us of our patience.
Sixteen minutes per day amounts to about an hour every week, eight hours every month and four days every year. That’s right; you’re wasting four days every year while waiting for pages to load and messages to send. What would you do if you had those extra hours and days? Though 64% of people spend more time with their computers than they do with family or friends, 34% say they would spend more time with their family and friends if they had an extra hour per week.
