    Default Re: Can someone live on his iPhone alone?

    I can say that an iPhone serves about 70% of my non-work related computing needs. My iPad covers about another 20% (for when a larger screen is a necessity). The other 10% would drive me bonkers trying to do it on an iOS device. Look up my rant in the "why doesn't iOS have file management?" thread. Something as simple as uploading a MS Word document onto a website is like pulling teeth on iOS. Other tasks that are dirt easy on a desktop/laptop due to the existence of easy file management and the ability to click and drag elements with a mouse are significantly harder on mobile platform. That being said, my desktop is very rarely touched as my iPhone/iPad take care of *most* of my computing needs. However there are a few things that just can't be done (easily, at least) on a mobile device.

    My late wife did for 3 years and my son never touches a computer anymore outside of school. We have HP Printers at home with e-print enabled and my daughter uses Airprint unless she's doing some design work for one of her classes but for the most part, she's not on her laptop much. I don't know when the last time anyone even used the iPad2 we have other then to update the IOS on it. I rarely get on my laptop except to do a weekly backup to it and do it's weekly backup to our NAS server. If one of my servers go down at the office, I normally just login to the VPN and fix it through that. Yea the screen is hard to read for me at times but that's more due to age then anything.
