    What? I think you might need to explain?

    Just seem like overkill to me bridging 2 screens with a third smaller screen, i mean people are comfortable with multi monitors with more or less bezel and distance in between them.
    So to me it seem as futile as yelling all the time to make sure you are heard, so they try too hard i think.

    People are also just fine spending hours upon hours doing just about anything on a single small phone screen, but maybe they think if the get a even bigger screen people will fall over each other to get to that.

    Re: Microsoft patent puts a 3rd screen in a folding device hinge

    And don't get me wrong i al all pro big screen, my eyes are old and tired and soon i will need reading glasses to read my "large" phone screen.

    Just seem like now there is a option to make screens flexible, this have lead to a explosion of devises witch can fold or slide in and out to make bigger screens.
    it is a need i don't think are there for the vast majority of people.

    I myself are tired of carrying a phone in my pocket, and other things too.
    So looking forward to the day i can ditch my phone ( again )
    If there was a better / smaller / more convenient way to carry cash i would even loose my wallet cuz that have always annoyed me too, both in times of it being thin and in times of it being fat with money.
    I could of course just carry my visa card and my driving license, those 2 pieces of plastic are much smaller than a wallet, but i also have a equal big dislike for using plastic money, i have not done that since the late 80ties.

    PS. my card got skimmed 2 weeks ago at a ATM machine in spite of me being well aware of the risks such a place :-( so right now as i only found out yesterday i wait for a new card.
    Bank did call me last week to tell me they closed my card, but i do not take calls when unknown numbers are calling.
