On what size displays do you typically read technical material?

Survey period: 19 Nov 2012 to 26 Nov 2012

When reading technical content, and not merely wasting time in the Lounge, are you on your smartphone, 10" tablet or do you stick to that 55" Plasma and HDMI cable setup you've got going?

I don't want to sound bad but really... does it matter?
Form factor matters a lot on web but putting it only for technical content... does it?!

It's technical material, it's not a novel that takes a considerable amount of time to read.
I have books but usually when I need to know about a subject I use the internet. It's easier to browse, you get more that one opinion on the same subject, ...
But it really never happened to me to think that it would be better if I was reading this on my PC or whatever.

This type of content is usually on a blog format that usually already adapts well enough to any form factor so I really never had this kind of trouble... maybe it's just me... D'Oh! | :doh:

Cheers!!
