There was a good article in Scientific American back in the mid 80s which
made this same point about labor saving devices and "woman's" work. More
time is now spent cleaning the home because the standards of cleanliness
rose. Of course women do spend less time chopping wood for the stove
I've got a robot that cuts my lawn. Apart from the couple of hours
that was first required to set it up 3 years ago, I spend about 60
seconds cutting my lawn.
Some time saving devices actually do save time.
