Computer Input Devices

Hello everyone. There has been a lot going on on my ming in with all the hype in regards to Apple Tablet, and not only that. It is not going to be another article about the Mac Tablet Netbook Thingie.
I would like to express my opinion on human interface devices and how important they seem to be for people in the world today. Meaning that actually we can do the same things on different devices. And most of the times we don’t actually need that many devices, but we have a choice to assign different types of tasks to each and every one that we have.
It comes out that mobile technology is the future of the computer world, as it makes a lot of sense. People want to be able to work where ever they are when they have thoughts or impression to do something. Meaning that if I want to write an article like that one somewhere on the go, I can use my MacBook and MasEdit, or I can use my iPhone and the WordPress app.
The biggest disadvantage so far is that most mobile devices are underpowered, and that is one area that is progressing, but not as quick as we would like it to. Batteries don’t last very long, and are not as reliable.
The big point of this short article is that we are actually paying for different devices or even input devices (the good example would be different midi controllers for audio DAW’s) when we can do the same things without them. Though with them we get more productive.
Are people lazy? Yes and no. We always try to make out life for the better, and that’s why we accessorise our lives with different types of devices, some of which do exactly the same things just in a different way of input from the human.
