Smartphones are great but are not desktop natives. At your desk, your PC or smartphone are never at the right size and position to share content and view multiple sources simultaneously. Using your smartphone to show apps, videos or images to someone sitting in front of you is never comfortable. Tilting your computer screen cause you to bend over and stretch across your desk. When several gusts are sitting around your meeting room you lose control once you give away your smartphone to be circulated. When using your smartphone at your desk you have to hold it in order to view the screen, lay it on the table to do something else and hold it again to see if the stock you are following has changed or to view the clock again to make sure you are not late for your next meeting.

Exactly 47 years ago on Oct 6th 1965 my father Negus (Michael Raymond Marcel Ransenberg RIP 1936-1947) built a model of FOCH Aircraft Carrier.
For many years the model was at the same apartment where we lived and in later years at my nephew’s house. The model housed in wood and glass aquarium with back mirror was kept reasonably, only few parts fell apart and most of the wood and glass stayed intact. To give it another 50-100 years I took the frame apart and rebuilt it using the same materials replacing only one broken side glass. The model itself needed some cleaning and regluing.

The Three Laws of Robotics will only survive a bug free world. However, it is the nature of mankind to create bugs in machines and it is the nature of bugs to ignore rules. Hence, the world as we know it today will cease to exist once robots understand the Three Laws of Robotics.
