4 Traditional PC Features Mobile is NOT About

I have been on vacation for three weeks taking a break visiting my parents and celebrating my son’s 7th birthday. I am back and looking forward to more great mobile conversations. I hope you are do…

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

After dealing with trying to convert my father from Windows XP and Vista to Windows 8 over the last few days, and thinking about how software and video games are purchased now (that’s for another post sometimes soon), I was thinking a lot about the advantages of mobile that RJ points out in this article. The only point he makes that I slightly disagree with is the use of a stylus. I agree that you shouldn’t need a stylus to use mobile, but I like being able to use one if I want to take handwritten notes (sometimes, it’s just faster to jot down ideas). Otherwise, I agree–peripherals, power hungry apps, and an overblown file manager are too much. Definitely steps backwards.

    1. It wasn’t mine–it was RJ’s. I know I plan to go mobile too. Looking forward to having some actual quiet to do some writing that I can’t get done. My vacation starts in a week at the beach! Woo hoo! But I can never be without some sort of internet connection. Before tablets, I would actually bring my laptop with me every year! My husband thought I was crazy, although it did help us out a few times.
