As long as mobile devices such as my 3rd generation iPod touch still require me to squint at everything, and require me to jab at a glass screen to “type,” the desktop computer is still worlds easier to use for so many tasks.
Sarah Purewal at PCWorld thinks so, too.
It’s an intriguing proposition, but don’t count on mobile devices killing off your desktop PC any time soon. While mobile gear is certainly convenient when you’re trying to conduct business on the go, it’s nowhere near as convenient as a desktop when you’re trying to complete serious work in an office environment.
Sure, your phone, tablet or even laptop might conveniently fit in your pocket or backpack, but all these devices are fraught with compromises, whether it’s computing power, screen size, or, well, a really expensive price tag.
