Michael’s article on multitasking suggests moving your communications activities from you main computer to your IPad. I’ve done something like that, only partially for the reasons he suggests. I only check facebook on my Droid rather than on my laptop because: its a bit harder so I’m discouraged from doing it a lot, and because quite honestly it leaves less of a record for corporate to check up on me with. Using my corporate laptop to check FB is likely frowned on, but using my personal cell phone (and personal data plan) is likely permitted. All of which leaves me more time for coding on my Ubuntu box!
