The Angry Bird Effect [Economy]

We all waste some of our time, whether it is stuck in traffic or using it for fantasy football. How much of that time is being taken from your employer? It has been estimated that the Fantasy football hobby costs companies $10.5 billion in lost wages.

We spend 200,000,000 (200 million) minutes playing Angry Birds each day. What if we used that time more productively? If you assume on the low-end, that only 5% of that time is while at work the cost is $1.5 billion!

If you breakdown mobile traffic, it is probably right behind Facebook on our top smartphone uses. Via The Atlantic
