Tech Torture with Topher, Day 2

Posted: 03:39 PM ET

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.

So here we are at Day 2! Yesterday was a travel day and an easy day for only using my iPhone - I was on a plane most of the day, so there wasn't much need for my laptop.

Today will be the first big test: I'm attending a conference in San Jose, California and have to resist the urge to carry around my laptop. Tomorrow I will have a full update on the ups and downs of this adventure (misadventure?).

So with that, please take a look at the video, leave your thoughts in the comments and jump on Twitter to follow the conversation there. Thanks!

Is the purpose of this for APPLE SALES? Or you just trying to show how much THE IPHONE itself "promises" but dose not deliver? Just unsure of your angle/ pitch beside a product that has already sold itself and can only get updates from this point on?

-Discuss more about the New Apple flat tabletop notebook and the future of how that should and will make our lives easier, you know the practical things....

Steve – I think you're getting hung up on the fact that he happens to be using an iPhone. You could insert BlackBerry, Pre, G1 etc into this and end up in the same place. Though arguably it is more enjoyable on an iPhone 😉
