Larry Magid, tech columnist at PCAnswer.com, has a post analyzing how much it now costs to use our favorite gadgets. With so many different devices, there is a lot of overlap with purpose and functionality. I use my iTouch for listening to music, mobile web browsing, and calendar, but I need my laptop for heavier tasks. I enjoy my cell phone, but I’m a cheapo and don’t pay for any mobile browsing service. With no Wi-Fi on my phone I have to carry around my iTouch. I’m finding that one of my devices will do three or four things really well, but another device still has a spot because it does something that my other tech toys can’t. I like being prepared, but that means I’m always carrying around a big bag of expensive tech junk. If I’m well equipped, I rely on at least three different devices.
Will we ever reach a time when one device does it all?
