This chart is from a survey of more than 1,400 tablet computer users conducted by AdMob, the online advertising company that Google (GOOG) snatched away from Apple (AAPL) in 2009. I missed the report when it was released last week. The extent to which tablets have cut into PC use is surprising.

"I think this trend is really important," wrote reader David Emery, who spotted it on TUAW. "If it continues then computing is in for a huge sea change."
