Re: New poll for gammaworld
Good point Alexandr. I remember Lord Ronin clinging to his Commodore 64, and accessing the web via Lynx text only browser in terminal window.
For years, I'd get an HTML page updated on my site that looked fine in IE, Opera, Firefox, etc, then go fire up Lynx myself to make sure all the low-fi elements (alternative descriptions for image placeholders, etc) would look good for LR when he navigated with text-only. :)
I have only had a smartphone for about a year now. I do not like the fact that it puts me "on the grid" even more than before..even with GPS permissions turned off as much as possible.
Like spending cash instead of using a credit card, 'm waiting for the day when Big Brother looks at people with suspicion if they "don't" carry around a mobile communication and tracking device.
"You must have something to hide if you won't carry a smartphone so we can track your every move".

What this poll is missing is an option for "None Of The Above" which is not
really the same as "Other". I own neither a tablet nor a cell phone (and

will be completely confidential (I'm after percentages of the group as a
whole). Might eventually begin to use some google advertising in-app to
offset cost of the app stores, but do not plan to charge or profit from an
app, just learn and have fun. Plan is to have an app that runs mostly
offline with no need for constant connection.
