There, there my dear... I love my PC

It might not be a good idea to say to the love of your life, "Either that computer goes or I do!" According to a new survey, you could be packing your bags.

Sixty-five percent of Americans polled claimed they spend more time with their home computer than their spouse or significant other, according to just released research by Kelton Research.

Those who have chosen computer over companion don't seem to be getting much satisfaction from their inanimate partner. Of those answering, 84 percent say they were more dependent on their home computer now than three years ago, but that on average, they had experienced computer trouble eight times in those three years, and estimated they wasted 12 hours per month due to home computer problems, the report says.

The majority of those surveyed -- 52 percent -- described the experience of their biggest recent computer problem as one of anger, sadness or alienation.
