Yesterday I performed a completely unscientific poll asking “What’s your primary app development target platform?” and I am quite surprised with two things:
- 44% of the 75 participants are still primarily developing rich client apps
- Only 9% are developing primarily for mobile/tablet
What’s your take on these results?
This is the first time in many years that I am not feeling the need to upgrade my desktop computer, laptop, smart phone or tablet. I’m not even feeling the slightest urge to to get new kit of any kind. My 27″ 2011 iMac is running great, my iPad mini is awesome, my 2012 Macbook Pro laptop is way more than I need on the road and for teaching and my iPhone 4s still works great.
In the past I would feel the effects of the Steve Jobs “reality distortion field” and feel compelled to upgrade. No more. Maybe it’s the “turning 50” thing?
Everything is working, and working dang well.
How about you?
