    Horrible advice lol. Imagine typing documents, programming, and media editing on a smarphone.

    USB drives does not require internet connection, which isn't always available and can break.

    Does this article even give consideration that "obsolescence" is a relative concept and not gospel?

    I don't like throwing out proven "gadgets" just for the joy of being left stranded by "better and faster" gizmos.

    No wonder "experts" are delegated to idiot status in many realms, (the Japan Nuclear fiasco is a good example!!!).

    A really crappy ill thought out article, journalistically poor and not stimulating to any degree.

    I still prefer to carry my media player in another device :D (Battery life and sound quality)

    Point and Shoot cameras are still a LOT AND LOT better than smartphones, specially if you have a crappy phone like me.

    Desktop? I-ll never get rid of my big box :D
