That said, I have found some genuine value to exchanging my usual laptop setup for the iPad.
Mostly it comes from the clarity / elimination of B.S. that forced minimalism can bring to you.
Forcing non-essentials out brings in focus, on non-B.S. things. Cumley continues:
I find myself markedly more deliberate in my actions, focused on completing the short list of productive things I have to do, and less prone to distraction.
Shawn Blanc comments on Cumley’s last quote:
This is something that Iâ€™ve found true of working on my iPad as well. Last summer I touted iOS as the best piece of anti-distraction software I own.
OS X Lion has been injected with a bit of iOS and I feel the result is a less distracting experience.
