The One Thing That Warren Buffett Will Do For Hours On The Computer—And It's Not Investing

It’s common knowledge that Warren Buffett doesn’t have a computer in his office and doesn’t rely on technology much when he makes investing decisions.

But during a talk at the Economic Club of Washington yesterday, Buffett told his interviewer, the Carlyle Group’s David Rubenstein, that he is in love with the Internet and is on the computer many hours every night when it’s not work-related.

Why?

“When Bill and I appear together, sometimes we use the trick question of ‘Aside from e-mail, which one of us is on the computer more?’ And the answer is me. I play bridge on the Internet, a couple of hours every night,” he said.

Buffett’s bridge habit is no big secret, he once also said that he gets so drawn into the game he wouldn’t even notice if a naked woman walked by.
