    Phone: Outlook, the resident browser (Edge/Chrome/Safari depending on mobe), device controllers like Alexa, Harmony and Grace for media management. I'm not big on social stuff, so I'm in Twitter or Facebook only occasionally. I don't use the cameras daily, but they get used a lot compared to other things on the phones that I never open.

    PC: Browser (Firefox mostly, but Chrome and Edge sometimes), Outlook, Excel, OneNote, Photos, Notepad (or some similar app), NYTimes crossword.

    That's the daily stuff. Less frequently but still a few times a week I use apps that support inking -- sketching, annotation, fast flagging and so forth. When things go sideways I spend some time in PowerShell or a simple Command Prompt window

    This seems kind of dull and limited now that I look at the list. These devices are capable of way more than I ask of them.
