Brits prefer using their PCs to having sex or a bag of chips. According to research by Microsoft, a quarter of Britons would rather be using their computer than having sex. And one in five rated silicon chips above the potato variety -- that's 'french fries' to our US readers. But our technical prowess apparently does not fall on deaf ears on the continent. The study revealed that the French, Germans and Spanish all viewed Britain as the most computer- literate nation in Europe. And while we like talking to our PCs, the Swedes stroke theirs and the Spanish favour hitting theirs. Microsoft also revealed that within two years, almost half UK homes would have a PC. Shareholders in the Durex empire will no doubt be shuddering at the news. ®
