    I don't think companies should ban employees from doing some personal computing during work hours. The brain needs a break at times after all to maintain creativity. Companies dealing with productivity issues need to dig deeper than just counting the hours employees spend with their minds occupied elsewhere. Changing from a "work eight solid hours" mentality to a "reach your goals in a timely fashion" mentality could help. Those designing the goals should know how long each step in the process should take. It's something that a shallow quick-fix won't accomplish.
