A couple of days ago, I said I would go completely mobile for all of my computing needs except specific needs such as working on the iOS SDK or working on my personal site, Greenjava.
There have been no emails, searches, Netflix or even downloading iTunes U class lectures. All RSS updates, blog entries have been through the G1, iPod touch, or the iPad.
Even this blog entry is done without the support of my MacBook. And if I really want to, I can edit video clips I took using the mobile iMovie app.
So far, it's been going quite well. I am concerned about battery life from time to time. I make sure all my mobile devices have their batteries charged to 100% and with three devices (sometimes four), it isn't a big concern as it might be if I had only a G1 or my iPod touch with me.
One mobile activity that I have decided to give up is checking into various locations on Foursquare or Yelp. It is a personal choice rather than an inducement created by my decision to use only my devices for my computing and Internet needs. I just don't see any benefit yet. And I quit Facebook about a month ago.
Anyway, I'll report back from time to time when I discover some neat new experience or if I decide to give up this experiment.
