Do you talk to your computer?

It is no surprise that in a country with high technology advancement like Japan, it seems that people are communicating less with each other. Recent news reported that 40% of young Japanese women talk to their computers. Kind of weird huh. Two in five Japanese women in their 20s or 30s talk to their personal computer, according to a survey by mail forwarding company iShare Inc. and toymaker Sega Toys Co.

I always thought with the development of technology, people are more connected. Almost everyone nowadays possesses a handphone that eases communication. However, the report shows that young Japanese women are also likely to talk to themselves during times of high stress, or when they do something wrong.

So how about you?. Do you talk to your computer?
