Not to bee funny but you'd be surprised how fast I typed this out on my S3. Honestly there is just a generation gap here that will never be closed. I don't know your age but I can guess you're a bit older. (no offense meant)
I'm between 25 and 34, and I don't really think it's a generational matter unless you want to insist there is that much of a gap in terms of how people in my generation and teenagers view technology.
I don't think it's generational at all, actually, because I know plenty of people around my age who seem to share your point of view.
I just think differently than most people. The main differences between the way I tend to think and the way many others tend to think seem to be these on a consistent basis:
1. I think more logically while they think more emotionally.
2. I favor substance over style while they are vice versa.
3. I look for efficiency and practicality while they favor trends regardless of those things.
Usually. It's much slower, however, when it doesn't have a connection, which is almost everywhere on earth.
Yes, but I don't see a need for a connection in most places most of the time.
As I said, other than emergencies where you somehow desperately need info from the internet or to do something on the internet right then and there, it's just not necessary to have instant access wherever you are.
I think modern technology (and the propaganda from companies who make money off of it) are convincing people the opposite is true and that they absolutely need to be connected as often as possible and from virtually anywhere. This is laughable for many people (particularly younger people and teenagers) for whom the vast majority of browsing is social media and other things which are the epitome of trivial and unnecessary reasons to have such a mobile internet connection.
Don't get me wrong, by all means people can do what they want. I just think it's hilarious that some people think they "need" a constant mobile internet connection so they can do nothing more than check their social media accounts and such.
A detriment when mobile.
Again, why do you need to be mobile? Sure it can be nice now and again, but is it necessary for most people in most situations? I would argue no, it isn't.
For example, I'd rather wait until I have a larger screen to look at than try to look something up on the smaller screen. - and really most things can wait.
Of course... a mobile device is a slimmed-down version. A suitcase has more capabilities than a toiletries bag. They're different things.
Sure. But like the computer, the suitcase is superior in every way but its mobility. You wouldn't take a toiletries bag by itself on an overnight trip unless you had some really good reason for doing so. In the same way, there isn't any reason to access the internet from a mobile device unless you have a really good reason for doing so.
Yes, better for typing... unless you're not at your computer.
Again, this begs the question: In what situation do you need to access the internet when you're not at the computer, and it simply can't wait? I don't doubt these situations do occur, and for some people more than others due to their job or situation. But for most people - me included - there just aren't that many occasions when it can't wait until I'm at the computer.
So given that there aren't many occasions when I can't wait until the computer is available, there is no reason for me to purchase a more expensive phone for internet usage or pay a monthly fee to have it on my device so it's there on those rare occasions when it might be useful.
