Way too many, i pretty much use it from when i wake up until when i go to bed :s I read books on technology, i ride to work on technology, i work in and with technology, I even track my food and health stuff on technology. I'm not even sure if i can write with a pen and paper anymore, because i almost always type, but if i did, well papers and pens are technology too. OH NOO IT'S EVERYWHERE HALP!

Re: Let's Talk Too Much Technology

I reckon I'd spend a solid amount of time per week on technology, maybe 20+ hours. I find that a problem that comes from this is that I also use it a lot for things like university and homework, which blends wayyyyy too easily into recreational use.
