1.3 Billion A Year: What iPhone Gaming Costs UK Businesses

September 13, 2011 6:31 pm

We have written some comparison of Angry Birds and Wikipedia creation before – we spotted this today:

“UK firm iBingo has questioned just 2,000 iPhone owners about their working habits, and in particular, how much gaming they do during working hours. Turns out, they all ‘fessed up to playing games on their iPhones for around one hour a day. From there, iBingo took the numbers and ran with them, and have since made some bold claims based on those 200 users…

Extrapolating those 2,000 results, iBing believes that the UK’s 2,000,000 iPhone owners are wasting 57 million working hours by playing games such as Angry Birds, each and every year. The real cost of those hours going AWOL? A cool £800 million.”
