Actually I don't think that is ridiculous at all nor is it inefficient. It's far better to do all the same type of task at once if you possibly can. So it's is far more efficient to do all phone calls at once time instead of piecemeal.

I am more efficient if I do all the shopping in one trip rather than waste 3 hours because I forgot something that is important and have to drive back to the city to get it. And yes, I do plan the route to make all right hand turns if possible, that actually can save almost half an hour over the course of a day,a significant time savings.
If I am in bill paying mode with checkbook out it's better to do all of them at once and get them ready to mail rather than do one now, put everything away, then have to dig it all out again later.
If you don't think contexts work for you then IMO you don't understand how to adapt contexts to your life. I maintain that context is a useful distinction for everyone, no matter the situation. In your example, Jobs context was "at Pixar" and he did everything related to that context while there and so on. Your examples do not show a lack of context but a very well defined use of them.
