    I'm on my computer about 7 hours a day not including the time on my iPhone/iPad.

    Weekdays- probably about 3-4 hours on the computer.

    Weekends- probably about 5-6 hours on the computer.

    I don't have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, so the computer is the only real thing that would count in this thread (I do have a Zune but that's purely for music).

    Following Firestar's format:

    Weekdays
    2-9 hours at work
    1 hour at home

    Weekend days
    2-4 hours (more on Saturday than on Sunday)

    Just guessing about at home, of course...

    Same here. Probably 8-10 hours on average a day on week days and 2-4 on weekends. In other words, a LOT.

    Too much. Some days, up to 12 hours. I'm studying computer engineering and I have a bad habit of wasting my spare time on the internet.

    10 hours probably, much less when I'm not studying.

    This thread is begging for a poll.

    And it needs a "too much" option. I must use my computer at least 2-3 hours per day. It's quite sad that all of us waste so much time staring at screens now. There's so much to see and explore out there.

    Mon-Fri, easily 12-14 hours per day, every day.

    Weekends varies too much, but a bit less.

    All this staring at the screen is the only reason I'll even be able to go and explore "out there". Being jobless and broke wouldn't help that. :)

    Getting to be too much these days. Cold dark nights were an excuse for the last few months, as was eBay and various projects on the Mac. As soon as I come home it's on with both Mac and PC, usually gaming on the PC (medieval Total War) whilst surfing on the Mac at the same time. This could be 6 to 9pm most evenings.

    At work - all day, unless I'm in a meeting (which is frequent).

    At home - I very often have my iPad or iPhone on me, checking Twitter or whatnot. I don't spend nearly as much time at my iMac as I used to.
