According to a recent study, computer overtakes pet dogs as man's best friend.
The stunning discovery comes as more and more people spend more time on their computers than with their dogs.
Researchers found that just 6 percent of people believed that "most people rely more on their dog than they do on their PC", while 67 per cent think the opposite to be true.
Even 38 per cent of dog owners confessed to relying more on their PC than on their dog, although 36 per cent disagreed.
And 71 per cent of 18 to 24-year-old dog owners said they relied more on their computer.
"These days you can even take your PC for a walk, provided you have a laptop or tablet," the Daily Mail quoted Paul Allen, editor of Computeractive magazine, which conducted the poll with the Royal Society For The Protection Of Cruelty to Animals, as saying.
"It's only a matter of time until the first PC that fetches your slippers," Allen added.
Researchers questioned 2,000 British adults to find out about the change modern technology has brought to their home life.
They found that male dog owners are almost twice as likely as female owners to rely on their computer than a canine companion.
