“Slow computers are the worst!” says makers of computer memory
‘Digital downtime’ means we spend more than five days each year waiting for computers to load
Slow PCs and laptops have entered the top seven list of our everyday annoyances
A new study suggests that we spend five and half days each year waiting for slow computers, applications and files to loads.
The research was conducted amongst PC and laptop users in the UK and found that these waiting times also had a knock on affect, putting almost a third (30 per cent) of respondents in a bad mood for the rest of the day.

Who might be the company convincing us that we spend a highly-implausible five days per year waiting for our slow computers to load?
Conducted by computer memory makers SanDisk, the study estimated that we spend 130 hours each year waiting for our computers to load and that PC freezes and crashes had become one of the top seven most stressful everyday experiences.
Maybe SanDisk, makers of computer memory, might have some ideas on how we can make our vitally-important slow-running computers move a little quicker.
