A recent Forrester report predicted that by 2016 tablets will be our primary computing device but attached to a desktop.
As long as the desktop has a touch screen, I might agree.
I’ve not made the transition as Benjamin Robbins, the author, of the article I mention below has, but desktops just fit the bill when I’m planning on working on 5 or 6 activities over a couple of hours.
Even though, I will concede as I set up my new desktop, it may be my last one.
When I see how much easier the old one is with its little tricks I learned and forgot, I suspect converting to a smartphone or a tablet isn’t that much more complicated. But, the mental part many be a problem. If I just solve set up problems, I’ll be all right for now.
But for now, what do I do with all that equipment? See photo.
I have taken one large step, however. I stopped carrying a pen, don’t need one with a smartphone and an iPad everywhere I go.
