Let's talk about computers and such. I think they are important considering the amount of time we spend on them.
I've come to realize how I'm deeply entrenched in the Apple ecosystem. I have a macbook air, an iPhone 5s, and an iPad mini. When I am home i have an external setup that i connect my laptop to but other than that gone are the days of my full desktop use. I don't game, I don't program and I don't require intensive processing power so this suits me fine. Even so, I'm also slowly using my tablet more and it's replacing my air for leisure usage. I'm used to tethering at work(which is really my car as i go from place to place) but it was getting expensive as I always broke the 10gb usage limit. $500 phone bills suck:(
I've switched to 4gb limit a month for both my phone and table so the bill is now ~110. I did it partly for the bill but also because I just don't use the internet too much anymore as a pastime. 5 minutes on 4chan, 5 minutes here and my needs are more or less satisfied for the day. Sad but also I feel good that I am finally moving on.
What are your setups and how do computers play a role in your life? Have they been waning as you get older like me or is your usage growing?
If you think there can be improvements to be made in someones setup don't be shy to say so.
