Yes, I said it. The technology advisor who has used Macs since 1999 and the first release of OS X. Yes, he who has had multiple Macs, all iPad models and iPhones 4 through 6. The Nokia Lumia 1020, its Windows 8 operating system and the Surface Pro 3 from Microsoft are changing my tune about productivity and the toolset I need at the office, home and on the road.
I’ve been looking at the balance of apps on the app stores (not just quantity – but what I actually need on phone versus on tablet or laptop) as well as what is my best productivity workflow. Thus, while I maybe can work on my iPhone with there being an app for just about everything – is it the best place to work or the best use of time?
Game changers for me include:
- Cortana outperforming Siri and Google Now where I need it most – in the car
- The balance of the right critical apps on Windows phone plus the ability to use the Surface Pro 3 as both tablet and lapotop
