Many people buy computers. It makes us curious what people actually do on them. On these following questions, answer them but you don't have to describe what you actually do. HINT: If you do more than one on this list, feel free to write multiple answers.

What People Do on Computers
1. Online Social Networking
2. Business/Work/School related tasks
3. Online Gaming/Software Video Gaming
4. Media Playback (Watching Movies, Listening to Music, Viewing Photos, etc.)
5. Web Surfing
6. Bragging to your friends/co workers that you have a cool computer and they don't

Thanks, and have a wonderful day!

Don't do porn.
Do Facebook with friends and family.
Email.
Check news and weather.
Do CD.
Dont do movies or music.
LIke to Google historical stuff and other things of interest.
To me my computer is a source of info and keeping track of family spread out all over the country.
It isn't a "have to have it all" type of entertainment.
I can get on the puter or go fishing or work in the yard.
The internet isn't my life.

1. Online Social Networking - Does City-Data count?
2. Business/Work/School related tasks - Communicate with customers, research products, problems, solutions. QuickBooks
3. Online Gaming/Software Video Gaming - Nope
4. Media Playback (Watching Movies, Listening to Music, Viewing Photos, etc.) - A little media playback. Also organize and edit photos I've taken
5. Web Surfing - Yep
6. Bragging to your friends/co workers that you have a cool computer and they don't - Why would I do that? I doubt anyone cares about my computer. Whining endlessly about how "cool" their computer is is something for apple fanbois.

I do all but #6 since to brag is to be rude and pretentious.
