Well using a web browser on a PC is a lot easier than using a web browser on a phone. The same applies to using an app browser. Often times when I'm looking for a particular app, I'll read more in depth reviews on other websites, and switch back to the tab with the app on google's website. No need to then go look it up on the phone. Makes it easier that way.

Why? If you have websites that you frequent, it's easier to just send them from your desktop to your phone rather than keying in the URL by touch.

Well when you get a lot of voicemails, it's easier to manage them using a mouse and keyboard rather than touch.
