Interesting article! I don't really fall in any of those areas, though.
Hmm, I didn't find the article interesting at all because it also totally misses my use case. (Heh Reverse-Whine!)
I used to hate cell phones back when they were just bricks and Mom made me carry one in the car "for emergencies". I tried an HTC with Win Phone 6, but it was really unintuitive compared to I was expecting at least a minimal imitation of Windows. (Jeez, all I wanted was a mini desktop and folders and to type some text files and use mobile versions of some famous desktop apps! But it didn't really work that way for reasons that bothered me and now don't matter.)
After a colleague at my old job again recommended an iPhone, I did take it a bit more seriously, waited and read up a bit, and spent a bit more to get the 3GS (instead of the now significantly importantly weaker 3G - I recall a few times seeing the 3GS was the lowest model still supported for various things.)
But again getting grumpy that it "refuses" to deal with a "desktop, folders and files", I now absolutely believe there is "no computing power" in it - only some hardware that happens to run various apps. So I use the dating one a lot, and the rest are just "cute useful utilities" that make the phone worth carrying (besides the concept of mobile calling itself). But the minute I want to get serious it has to be on a real desktop comp.
(Another sidebar - I used to have a second weak comp I called "Netscreen" that I used for all the raw experimentation, and kept my project comp conceptually clean as a whistle, but then I got lazy somewhere along the way and just did it all on this one comp. And in the light of the death of XP, time has marched on anyway and *maybe* this one can run Win 9 (if I ever get someone to set up a dual boot test for me), but that old one absolutely can't. *
