      It seems that according to media reporting nowadays everyone relies on their mobile phone for doing most of their digital interaction.

      I don’t. I like to use my phone for text messaging and calls. For complete peace of mind, I do not put the most sensitive information on my phone. For example, I never transact internet banking through my phone.

      Interestingly, the vast majority of visitors come to this forum via their PC. Although it is true to say that while the forum is mobile friendly in its software, unlike Living in Crete it does not have a dedicated software version specifically for mobile users. That would be nice for us, but it will be sometime in coming, according to the YaBB developers.

      Visitors to this forum also for the most part are older and certainly not the *millennials generation who seem to eat, sleep, in fact do everything with their phone at hand.

      The poll is just a bit of fun and a curiosity factor.

      All visitors as well as members are welcome to vote.

      *Millennials – are those born between 1982 and 2000 and labeled as such by the consumer marketing people. This group is apparently the one that has the spending power that drives the economy across much of Europe and the western world.[reason]Clarity is important so added the comma in red [/reason]

        Gerald, you are missing a comma in this sentence, so it’s ambiguous:
        "Although it is true to say that while the forum is mobile friendly in its software(,) unlike Living in Crete it does not have a dedicated software version specifically for mobile users."
        or
        "Although it is true to say that while the forum is mobile friendly in its software unlike Living in Crete(,) it does not have a dedicated software version specifically for mobile users."

          Mod2. Point taken. That is now the meaning intended stating factually correct information.

            I agree with what you said in your 1st post.

            My current mobile phone is 5" that I find handy to view as a tablet on the way, decent size screen with lots of memory.

            My large tablet that also has sim Card, I find heavy for daily usage – out and about, but great to have on the way, particularly by travelling, in addition to the mobile phone.

            Would usually have a laptop as part luggage, but not always convenient to take out & use in company.

            Long term home based somewhere then use either Laptop or PC/Imac.

            The main priority that I have changed is he size of the laptop, as some airlines allow a laptop as free hand carry on separate to other hand carry on, but someone changed the size, think it was BA from 17" down to 15" ish

            Of course the ‘Millennials’ would be the ones with extra disposable incomes.

            When I think back to being that age and some of the silly things I bought.

            I do find it strange out and about, those with their mobiles in hand. On a bus or tube, looking around those sitting, more than 60%, on occasion spot the one without one in their hand.
