Definitely more time online. (But I must admit that there is a TV right next to my computer in my office.)

Yep, more time online but, I also have a TV in my office next to my computer like Fisher's Mom. Buck and I aren't the biggest TV watchers, so being online is more fun for us. I also use the Internet a lot because of my occupation, so I have a good excuse.

In any case, it's a little like waxed paper/plastic wrap...what'd we do before without them?

Online definitely. I used to watch a lot of TV, but then it got boring. I learn all the time from being online, plus youtube is a pretty kickin' site :-P

Red face you tube or boob tube?

on line probably, but do have tv going all day, mostly food network.

there are so many things just waiting to learn about on line.

the recent strike has caused so many repeats on tv . it is hardly worth watching. mostly i read and watch tv.

i can't help but watch a ton o' tv as there's always one on somewhere. at work and at home.
my online time is limited (poorly chosen word, maybe?) to time at work, and a rare occasion at home.

i was thinking today, however, that a voice controlled computer in my car would be nice. my wife asked a question that i knew something about, but i would like to have had access to the web for confirmation and additional info.
so "advancing" technology will have a play in this, someday.

in analyzing myself on this, i realized that the question will become increasingly more interesting as time goes on for many people. before the internet, all there was for real-time video and audio infotainment was tv. hence, the addiction and devotion to it.
but now, for those who love constant input and have the "gotta know now" type of instant gratification syndrome, the internet is the way to go, and tv is just background noise or an occasional show to pass the time.

i'm gonna have to remember to bump this in ten years.
