Via krupa in IRC:

when we show the confirm this is your device screen, shouldn't we try to be device-agnostic? It says "is this your computer?" even when i am on my phone.

@skinny97214 ?

Talk to the Sync team. Then went back and forth for a bit before settling on the proper wording when users are syncing across desktops (your "computer" above) and mobile "devices"...

An RP that targets high school students has given me information that this screen confuses students as well. Many students think "yeah, this is my computer right now" and click yes.

+1 for wording changes.

I think we should call it a phone, or a computer, or a tablet. It feels so human. Little tiny JavaScript library that encapsulates the sniffing? whatisthis.js?

I know the simple solution is to just call it a device, but that's so cold.
