That's the title of a Wired article posted today. Here's the lead paragraph:
You wake up and check your email on your bedside iPad — that’s one app. During breakfast you browse Facebook, Twitter, andThe New York Times — three more apps. On the way to the office, you listen to a podcast on your smartphone. Another app. At work, you scroll through RSS feeds in a reader and have Skype and IM conversations. More apps. At the end of the day, you come home, make dinner while listening to Pandora, play some games on Xbox Live, and watch a movie on Netflix’s streaming service.
You’ve spent the day on the Internet — but not on the Web. And you are not alone.
Coincidentally, Jame Kendrick posted a related article titled A Typical Day With a Superphone on JKOntheRun a few days ago. He's the type of person discussed in the Wired article.
The smartphone of today has become a powerhouse that fits in a pocket. That’s why some even refer to them as “superphones,”which is very appropriate. To demonstrate how useful the smartphone has become, I present this mini-chronicle of a typical day with my smartphone. I use the HTC EVO 4G, but there are many phones on the market that are just as capable (4G excepted).
What I find most interesting is that I do all the same activity, only I use my laptop. I don't think I'll ever switch to a phone for any of my browsing. That size screen doesn't convey enough information at one time.
At some point I should do a post on the tabs and apps I have open at all times. It might be interesting.
