Even though smartphones are all the go nowadays. Do you still use your computer more for the net?

@tommyirish2,
I use both (BTW, welcome) - I do social media for a living and sometimes it is just easier to see things on the laptop. Plus the content often differs, as mobile users have differing needs.

@jespah,
Hi Jespah.

Yeah and a lot of sites don't work properly on mobiles anyway. I tend to use the internet more on a computer, laptop usually. I tend to use the phone only for texts and calls.

It does seem that a lot nowadays though use phones more as portable internet devices than actual phones..

I hope they never do away with the desktop PC. It is all I ever use or even want to use.

Hello and welcome
I have an telephone and a mobilphone but no smartphone. Usually only use the mobilphone when travelling.
Used to have a laptop, but as I write a lot I found it easier on the PC. Writing on a laptop was not relaxing and I could not write fast.
You did not ask - but yes I like to send handwritten letters, often using pastel coloured stationary and matching coloured ink.

@tommyirish2,
I think it depends on how much people have to wait or commute, too. I work from home, so my phone often ends up being used when I'm on the go. That's less often than it is for other folks.

My husband and I text a lot because it's private. If he's on a crowded bus, he doesn't want to be announcing to the world that he wants to go food shopping tonight.

@edgarblythe,
They won't. People will buy fewer and fewer big computing devices an that is what is meant by the post-pc world but there is always gonna be some kinds of work that they are better suited for. They will be like the trucks of computing. Not for everyone but not going away.

@tommyirish2,
I don't use my phone much for the net, but I use my iPad most of the time at home. I only really use my computer at work, and most of that is for email.

I use both because sometimes we need to work for a longer time so that can be done only on laptop or PC
