I am inclined to agree with this number in terms of "focused" on a screen. I am including smartphone, video gaming, television, and just recreational computer use to browse information. Certainly not all of those hours are "working"; those hours aren't even because "it's fun." This is just modern life. Unless you're are hiking, driving, swimming, boating or fishing, odds are that you are looking at a screen. You'll notice I left out eating; it is getting very hard to find a restaurant without TVs!
anywhere from 0 - 20 hours a day 2 - 7 days a week depending on the mood.
less actual work if decided to binge watch some series. (wears out the old eyeballs, none left for work.) ... reminds me, haven't done the last GOT yet.
Weekends... I sometimes spend 30-60 minutes with my Chromebook. Most home tasks can be done with my tablet.
The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.
Hours at work per day actually working in front of a screen: 5-6
Hours at work per week: 48-50 (usually includes at least two Saturdays a month)
Last night was an exception...up at 11:30 and work until 3:30 doing a bi-annual azure database archive/rebuild process. Up at 8:00 again for another client's special budget request that they need yesterday. (due tomorrow!)
For me, it depends on the how nicely the week was scheduled because I know wich is following step for everything, in that case, my working/focused raise to the top, otherwise, I would say, maybe one hour per day and as all we know, the nice scheduling is like a chimera...
Other than a week of enforced abstinence during a cross country move 5 years ago, I have spent at least ten hours a day, seven days a week at the computer for the last 24'ish years, somewhat less for the ten years before that.
I work a 35-hour week in front of 3 screens and when at home, I'm back at my two screens playing or on my big TV screen with my GF watching stuff or playing (Diablo 3/Mario Kart). Hm, saying that makes me wonder WTF I don't need glasses.
