Can I add an iPhone and Chromebook to my all-Microsoft system? 12 Jul 6:25am Can I add an iPhone and Chromebook to my all-Microsoft system?
If Paul adds an iPhone and Chromebook to his Microsoft devices, will it lead to a mess of email addresses and accounts?

Because of the poor app support for the phone and Surface 2, I’m wondering about getting an iPhone and a Chromebook to replace the tablet and laptop. My laptop needs are likely to diminish once I have finished my PhD, and will be mainly email, word processing and presentations.

Some people had handheld “organisers” from Palm, Psion and other suppliers, but they synced with PCs. Life was simple.

I tracked my iPhone usage for a week and this is what I learned 12 Jul 2:00am I tracked my iPhone usage for a week and this is what I learned
From picking up the phone every seven minutes to realising that Safari is my main time sync, Apple’s Screen Time tools revealed more than I expected How many times do you pick up and interact with your phone in a week? More than 500 times? How about the sheer number of notifications you get? It might number in the thousands.
