I’ve had a netbook for nearly two months now, and it’s really cut down on my already abysmal email response/resolution time. While an iPod Touch definitely has its practical limits in terms of browsing and workflow, my seven months of nearly-exclusive mobile browsing on my iPod Touch has really killed the Gmail interface for me for email management.
Example: I triaged and deleted 600+ emails from my inbox tonight within minutes on my iPod, that had been piling up unread since using the netbook.
Experiment: iPod-only for day-to-day email in the next few weeks. Let’s see if this improves my correspondence.
