Every day I spend less time sleeping than I do looking at the screen of some device or other. I thought a minority of people would be like this, but it turns out most of the UK is like me!

A report from Ofcom says the average Brit spends 8 hours 41 minutes using media or communications devices and only 8 hours 21 minutes sleeping.

Many say we spend too much time with gadgets. But in an increasingly technological world, I wonder if it's really such a big deal?
