These days we pretty much use our phones for everything, from ordering food and car service, to browsing the web, and even watching movies. This has in turn left computers irrelevant for some, including Twitter‘s CEO, Jack Dorsey. While at a press breakfast in Australia earlier today, Dorsey in turn revealed that he doesn’t have a laptop, at all, Mashable reports.
“I don’t have a laptop, no, I do everything on my phone,” he disclosed when questioned about his online security practices. “It was important to me because I turn off my notifications, and for me it’s one application at a time. So I just have one app up, and I can really focus on what’s in front of me instead of everything coming at me as I would a laptop.”
Dorsey’s preference of his phone over a laptop is more for balance, however, as he went on to add: “I think anything can consume all of your time, but definitely the devices we have just have so much on them, so much interestingness, and you can certainly go down a hole. So I’ve developed a lot of personal practices: I don’t check my phone in the morning until I’m about to walk into work and when I’m working on my phone I turn off notifications so I’m not constantly reacting to what’s coming at me.”
“When we’re having meetings, phones down, laptops closed so we can actually focus and not just spend an hour together but make that time meaningful — and if that time is 15 minutes, then it’s 15 minutes, we move on with our lives. If we have our phones open, if we have our laptops open, and all these things are coming up, we just get distracted.”
So, anybody else down for ditching their computer?
