Office work has changed, and so has the stuff on our desks

Remember your office in the 90’s? Pencils and paper everywhere, Bookshelves stacked with books providing information. Customer contact was maintained by writing a letter and mailing it, News and orders came in by fax or even still by telex. Scalability was an issue but not a concern. Uhh, remember that Rolodex?

And today? A laptop will provide a bit more comfort to a usual office worker. However, a tablet is often enough to do the same job. Processes have intuitively or consciously been adapted to move from phone and paper to an email culture. A recent Nielsen study reported by CNN indicates that 10 hours and 39 minutes each day are spent with a screen.
