I will admit that smartphones can do a lot of things. You can use them to:
- Watch movies online.
- Do online banking.
- Publish blog posts.
- Purchase things online.
Okay, you get the idea; you can do a lot with your smartphone (They are like mini computers that you can carry around with you).
Despite being powerful, they are still limited in their functionality.
Desktop Computers And Laptop Computers Are The Best Tools For Coding
If you are writing code or compiling code, there is a high probability that you are going to do it on a desktop computer or a laptop computer.
By the way, I am not saying that it is impossible to write code or compile code on a smartphone, I am highlighting the fact, that a desktop computer or a laptop computer would be the most appropriate tool for the job.
So, desktop computers and laptop computers are still useful in 2022 (And, they will still be very useful for a very long time to come).
Customer Service Representatives Use Desktop Computers
If you were to go to your bank to conduct business, the bank teller would have a desktop computer at hand.
If you are dealing with a customer service representative for your internet service provider, they will have a desktop computer readily available to take down the necessary information.
And, why is that so, my friend?
Because the desktop computer is the best tool for the job.
Music Producers Use Desktop Computers And Laptop Computers
Music producers are known for using desktop computers and laptop computers for their music production.
Because those are the most appropriate tools for the job.
I would like to point out that some music programs allow the user to do music production via a smartphone or a tablet computer. However, they are not as great as their desktop counterpart.
Advertising Agencies Use Desktop Computers
Advertising agencies are known for using desktop computers to do their audiovisual work.
You will never catch an employee of an advertising agency using a smartphone to do that.
After all, the desktop computer is the most appropriate tool for the job.
Law Enforcement Agencies Use Desktop Computers
If you were to walk into a police station to file a complaint, the desk sergeant is going to write down your information and transfer what they wrote unto a desktop computer.
The traffic cop will have a laptop computer in his police car.
For the record, there are police departments that use smartphones (But, they are mainly used by police officers when they are on the go).
Intelligence agencies, on the other hand, are known to utilize:
- Desktop computers
- Laptop computers
- Tablet computers
Despite law enforcement agencies using all of the electronic devices, they still use desktop computers (And, they will continue to use desktop computers).
Media Houses Recognize The Importance Of Desktop Computers
If you are working for a newspaper company, you will be assigned a desktop computer; most of them will allow you to use a laptop computer (All the editor cares about is you meeting your deadline).
Radio stations will utilize all the technologies; they will:
- Use the desktop computer to run advertisements and automated radio segments.
- Allow the DJ or broadcaster to use their laptop computer because they have their music stored on them.
- Allow the DJ or broadcaster to use a tablet computer or smartphone to play music because some of them have their music stored in the cloud.
- Allow the DJ or broadcaster to use a desktop computer, a laptop computer, a tablet computer or a smartphone to interact with listeners via the radio station’s social media accounts.
Television stations will also utilize all the technologies.
For production purposes, they will use a desktop computer or a laptop computer to save time.
When the newscaster is reading the news, they will have either a laptop computer or a tablet computer right next to them (Which comes in very handy when the teleprompter stops working).
Sometimes, the newscaster and the director will use their smartphone to exchange bits and pieces of information with each other.
Despite the media houses using all of those electronic devices, the desktop computer is still king.
The average person who uses their smartphone to do everything will be blindsided; they may wrongfully believe that laptop computers and desktop computers are no longer needed in today’s modern world.
There are WordPress bloggers who will admit to you that they cannot do everything via the WordPress Mobile App and that they need either a laptop computer or a desktop computer to format their blog posts and customize their themes.
Therefore, one cannot rule out the importance of the role that laptop computers and desktop computers play in modern-day society.
