    How many hours do you spend online per day?

    That question is becoming more difficult to answer all the time.  Alot of us are connected to the internet most of the time with smart phones.  I think you probably mean browsing web sites but perhaps not.  So much of what I do now is all online.  For example, I turned off my cable television around a year and half ago and only watch online options such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Redbox, and Xbox movies.  Gaming is also more connected than ever.  Even some single player games require an always online connection.  I even get my books online.  I could not really tell you how many hours I spend online per day.  It would definitely be over 8 because 90% of my job requires web based applications, etc.

      My friends make fun of my phone. It dials out and takes low resolution pics. It can even text, but that's about it. If I could get FB on my phone I would be the least productive person on the planet.

        Mine, too.  It can text, but I can't.  I think I can go online, but the plan doesn't allow it and I don't know how anyway.  I can take a bad picture, though.

        Phones are to talk on, not surf or write letters.  Not even to take messages (I never check the voicemail; just call them back as I DO know how to find missed calls).

        And I buy time by the minute; I use less than 50 per month.  Minutes, not dollars; it costs about ten cents a minute.

    You are right, it's almost wrong to ask the question. For some, and me, I am always online. I can't imagine my work without being online. But surely this is not the case with everyone, like teachers, doctors, architects and the like, I imagine they use the internet at one time or another during their day's work .

      I actually work in a school district.  I know our district is a little different because we have a group of programmers that build applications.  Most of those are web based.  Our teachers take attendance online and enter grades online.  They also have access to online teaching resources.  They maintain their own teacher websites.  They really do quite a lot online but our district is probably not the average district.
