Can Your Computer Be Too Easy to Use?

A couple of days ago I had to go to a hotel because the water was turned off in my building. I grudgingly left behind my beloved desktop Mac and packed my laptop. I grumbled that I wasn’t going to get any work done.

Surprisingly, I got a ton of work done with time to spare for exploring the resort and going out to a nice dinner. My computer was such a pain to use that all I did was my most necessary work. The stuff for which I have deadlines. I spent very little time on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. I didn’t write any blog posts. It was just too darn hard to type and switch between applications. I did my work and was finished.

I started to wonder whether I should use my clunky laptop all the time, but ┬ámy wrists objected. No, I’ll still sit in front of my Mac and tweet and blog and so on, but it was certainly an interesting lesson.
