Consumption vs Creation

I was playing with an iphone today and realized a better way of putting what I dont like about it.

I am sure someone else has made this observation, but the iphone is designed for consumption of information. It works great when you are reading your email, reading news, etc. It is not as good at email creation, news writing, etc.

Consumption of information seems to be fastest for me when it is visual. Creation of information is fastest for me when doing something physical (typing on a keyboard).

I think that explains a bit about why I like the netbook idea better, I can create with it, rather than just consume.
