Survey reveals we spend more time with mice than partners


3 August 2006 — Glasgow (UK): A new survey undertaken by Logitech has found that more than 50 percent of adults spend more time with a computer mouse than with their partners.
41 percent of the 2000 people participating in the survey admitted spending on average over five hours a day with a mouse and six percent spend over 10 hours with the computer accessory.
In contrast, only 32 percent of those surveyed spend over five hours a day with a partner.
However, the attention garnered by our electronic pets is not backed up with gifts. The results showed that 25 percent of people are happy to spend £1000 ($1872) a year on their partners while 80 percent of mice get less than £10 worth of accessories and repairs a year.
