I use my computer to build this website. This requires that I use a word processor to create the content, an HTML editor to build the web pages, a website host to store and to present the site to the public, and finally a photo editor to manage and enhance the photos. Additionally, I use the computer for online banking, sending and receiving e-mails, maintaining my appointment calendar, and personal accounting for taxes. As you can see I am dealing with the normal computer personal use that most people want.
My wife uses her computer to keep and store recipes, and
knitting instructions. She also loves to play solitaire on the PC. When

My grandchildren, the ones in elementary school, are avid game players; so much so that their parents have to limit their time playing games on the computer. They also use the computer to improve their academic skills by downloading math tutorials and study guides. The older grandchildren, the teenagers, are enthusiastic users of social networking, as well as educational programs. This is an example of kids computer use, can you think of any other computer uses for school?
My son-in-law travels extensively throughout the country and in order to keep in touch with his family he uses video conferencing almost every day. Of course his online computer use is also for business applications as well as sending and receiving e-mails.
