Jason on Desktop First Mobile Computing
[Jason wrote well about the ideal setup we’ve been craving in so many ways](https://jasongullickson.com/blog/desktop-first-mobile-computing.html). He is aiming at the [PinePhone](https://store.pine64.org/?product=pinephone-braveheart-limited-edition-linux-smartphone-for-early-adaptor) which looks interesting.
I’ve gone the iPad Pro route. When I’m at my desk I drop my iPad in the dock and I’m connected to a 4K monitor and a wireless keyboard and I have a mouse with it. When I’m mobile I snap it in to one of the various cases I have for it.
When I don’t want a keyboard, I simply take it off and I have a tablet.
Yes I have a desktop but there are very few tasks I use it for still. Ripping movies of physical media, and getting a good visual GUI on a database. I am hopeful that the visual GUI for a database can be resolved with the right software, but I’m not expecting to be able to get something like Handbrake on my iPad ever.
