Is your computer hogging your family time?

The personal computer was supposed to completely redefine how we use our time. With information on every topic imaginable at our very fingertips, wasting time was to be a thing of the past. Today, however, we are left with one hitch. Adults in the United States waste an average of sixteen minutes every day waiting for their slow computers to catch up with them. Waiting for pages to load, messages to send, and inboxes to update takes a big chunk out of our lives.

Those sixteen minutes per day add up to about one hour each week. An hour that could be spent spending time with friends and family, time that could be spent to start a new hobby, or make a nice home cooked meal.
What would you do with an extra hour every week? Take a look at this infographic and let us know what you think in the comments. Don't forget to like and share!
