More Tablet PC / iBook: "
I wasn't surprised to see some interesting feedback on my post yesterday. While not entirely unexpected, I thought I'd add a bit more insight based on a few questions I was asked.....
First of all...did I do away with my Macs? Heavens no. However do I carry one with me wherever I go? Not anymore. My Tablet however does go with me. Is it because of Windows? Not necessarily. I am a huge fan of Mac OS X, however I also think Windows is getting better all the time. As someone pointed out from one of my earlier posts, I make my living developing for Windows so my switching to a Tablet as my primary personal computer may not be considered a "true" switch. Even so, in my opinion it is still significant. Obviously I've used a Mac as my "personal" machine for some time despite my working in a Windows world. My personal switch to a Tablet isn't about "giving in" to my surroundings, it's about what better fits into my life. If I could grab the screen on my iBook, flip it around, lay it down, and use it like my Tablet, then maybe I'd have not had a need for a new Tablet -- but in case anyone hasn't noticed, my iBook can't do that!
That being said....here are some more thoughts"
