The iPhone Effect

I am finding my brain wants to “think different” while working on my MacBook because I use an iPhone, particularly while surfing the Web. Sometimes I catch myself using iPhone shortcuts and then I’m confused for a second when it doesn’t work right.

Should I even be admitting this?

Sometimes, when I want to focus on a portion of a Web site I’ll double click on the area I want to see and fully expect it to zoom in like it does on my iPhone.

Other times, when I’m typing, I’ll find that I want to just hit the space bar twice to add a period rather than actually hitting the “period” key.

Gosh, this is embarrassing.

I’m going to stop there. You will find no more incriminating evidence here

Wait. Why wasn’t there a period at the end of that paragraph?

Doh! I did it again!
