Today I helped lead a blind man out of a subway station. At the exit, he turned towards me and said:
Blind Man: By any chance are you carrying a baby on your back?
Blind Man: Oh good. That explains the little arms that have been grabbing me.
It’s obvious just how much more is being done on phones and tablets than on computers, and the trend is continuing.
I think that’s a very bad thing.
Computers with their keyboards, mice, and multitasking are so much more efficient than iOS & Android.
I would like to know how much faster a laptop is at doing routine everyday tasks than doing the same thing on a phone.
Has this been studied before? If not, I think we should. We can publish it.
My hypothesis: In 2014, Americans will waste over 16 BILLION hours because they are doing things on their absurdly inefficient phone interfaces instead of on a computer.
