Comment It all depends on the topic of conversation! (Score 1) 115

If i just want to chat with a coworker, then I perfer to be in the same room with them or at least over the phone.

Is my coworker someplace far away overseeing a project? Then I might need to do the video call.

If I need to talk to a coworker about a specific project, then I might perfer an email so that there is a history of the topics discussed for accountability.

It all really comes down to the circumstances regarding the need for the conversation in the first place.

all the apps out there that are asking for full access to everything on your phone. It seems that more and more apps coming out, require more access then before, and for no apperant reason other than the bullshit lines of "we need it to diagnose problems on the users end".

That is one of the biggest reasons why I will not use my mobile device to perform any banking/payments. At least not until I'm convinced that some random app can't grab all my information on the payment systems being used.

the difference is that a person in the car with you is still aware of the surroundings and is a potential extra set of eyes that can see things happening around you (ie. if you're about to drive through a stop sign, or if someone runs out into the road infront of you). Talking on cell phone, completely different.
