The mobile phone is usually in the pocket (or on the desk), so why the need to “connect” with it while using the laptop/desktop? The mobile rings, lights up with an sms, and so on. If you are using Skype, it is there in both the mobile and the laptop. The only connection needed is to transfer files, photos etc. And, that can be done with bluetooth, which is there in every device these days. And, of course, through cable. Are we that lazy, or are we that tired?
