Tablet PC

Filed under: General — russell @ 4:17 pm

Now that I have been using my tablet PC for about a semester I am luke warm on tablets in general. I can type faster than I can write so my hoped for use of this to improve my writing time is "meh." Overall the lack of applications really is a problem, not many are tablet enabled. I do use the table view ALOT in class. Allows me to work on other things and appear to be taking notes. :)

Overall I think there needs to be more ink apps, but it seems MS has turned the other cheek (MCE) regarding tabletpc.
