PC’s and smartphones

I turned off my Mac laptop yesterday and when I restarted it, it was no longer working. I no longer get to the login screen.

I searched the web from my smartphone for troubleshooting suggestions and applied them one by one, but none of them worked. So I took my laptop to an Apple store and they’re going to try to repair it over the next day.

It’s been less than 24 hours since I don’t have access to my laptop, but I can already feel the pain. Although my smartphone serves well to do those parts of my work which require content consumption, processing, and communication, the small screen isn’t conducive to extended periods of content creation. For this I prefer a large screen.

Smartphones overtook PC’s in terms of annual sales a few years ago, and also in terms of install base more recently. The dominance of smartphones will likely grow in the future. However, if you’re looking to create content rather than just consume it, you’re still better off with a PC.
