What Do People Do While Waiting For Downloads

from the fidget-uncomfortably dept

The Detroit Free Press has attempted to figure out what people do while waiting for slow downloads on their computer. Some people multitask and figure out other stuff to do, while others just stare at the screen. I fall into the first category. I’ve noticed that I tend to just keep opening browsers until it gets to be too much. Then I start going back and remember all the stuff I opened which I had completely forgotten about.
