I think them marketing monsters want us on mobile devices because they can earn more or $$$ from us, you are right midnight i still and always will use my dust pan and brush ( might you in saying that 2 month ago i bought a new fancy pants vacuum cleaner i'm using my dustpan and brush less and less , i'll try not to stop completely using it in case it spells to end of the PC but at least my house is cleaner )
I love my android phone but I got it to use mainly as a phone and to do all the other stuff secondly . For all stuff computer related I'll always use my laptop PC
