Editor’s note: This is the latest in CNN.com’s ongoing “Tech Torture With Topher” video-blog series, in which we “torture” CNN.com staffer Topher Kohan by depriving him of a technological convenience for a week to see how he copes with it. This week, Topher is trying to conduct all his digital business only on his smartphone while traveling for work.
Well, after a week of conducting all my work only from my iPhone - except for that one e-mail problem, which required the services of my laptop - I believe this thing could work.
As I say on the video, if you plan ahead of time you can go to a conference and work just fine with only a smartphone. The next time I travel I might still take my laptop, but I will definitely leave it in the room when I go to meetings and out and about.
So that's it for this edition of Tech Torture with Topher. Thanks for reading, watching and commenting. I'm looking for ideas for next month's TTWT - a non-iPhone-related torture, please! - so feel free to drop a comment on this post with any suggestions you might have.
