    Not really too enthusiastic about this one. Seems an irrelevant question.

    A PC`s use ? Well, anything you like. I use mine for general browsing on just about any subject I wish to click. It is a massive encyclopedia of all human activity. It provides information and often solutions on almost every subject and enables electronic contact with sources never possible without it.

    Pre PC ? Lots of books, telephone directories or operator and the Pony Express for mail.

    Work ? So what ? That is the norm nowadays, I sat at one all day in my glory years. When the computer goes down, the company stops dead.
