    Preferred forum reading machine

    I'm curious what your favorite media machines are for web browsing, social media, etc.

    The included poll is to determine your preferred means for keeping up with the DC forum, but would also like you to post your other technical info.

    Please specify your equipment and why you prefer it



    Right now I prefer my Samsung Galaxy & Tapatalk, mostly because I'm on the road a lot.

    I use my iPhone most of the time. I travel a lot and it is what I have with me. My preference is a computer, but it is just not convenient.

    I tried the tapatalk thingy and hated it.

    It's either the home or office laptop or nothing.

    I like the desktop as the smart phone is hard for me to type on.

    DESKTOP, but sometimes use an iPhone.

    Firefox and Google Chrome. I like them both.

    I have never owned a laptop or a tablet, so I can't comment on those choices.

    Desktop at home and laptop when traveling don’t have a smart phone; plain old dumb phone suffices for placing calls.

    I apologize if I seem brusque, but why do you care or need to know what hardware I use to read the forum?
