Project Austin had me thinking about other cool inking applications. Microsoft OneNote immediately comes to mind, but it’s really not the same. OneNote is overkill for most note taking needs. How about Windows Journal? Journal is […]

Windows haters out in full force following Surface announcement

I’ve been reading quite a bit online about yesterday’s announcement for Microsoft’s Surface tablet. As I mentioned last night, I’m thrilled. But I can’t say the same for everyone else.

People are irrational

Two disclaimers: To be absolutely clear, this is a rant. Sometimes I rant to my wife, other times on paper. This time I felt compelled to throw it up here. I’m a tablet PC fan, and this is my opinion. If you have an alternate opinion, that’s cool. If you want to talk about tablets with […]

If I were to buy a tablet today…

I’m always on the lookout for a new tablet, and never more so then I am at this moment. My trusty Lenovo X201T is getting old. At more than a year, it’s downright ancient in computer technology years. It’s a dilemma to be sure. Fortunately for me there’s no shortage of tablets on the market: […]

This week it’s the 8-inch Vizio tablet making the rounds. However, it wasn’t the Vizio tablet that captured my attention this week. It was the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet. […]

Lenovo continues to impress, this time with customer service

I’ve been using a Lenovo T410S for several months now. It’s a great machine, but I’m not here to talk about that. Recently I took the T410S on a trip and busted the case just to the left of the trackpad. Bummer. I jumped online and opened a ticket with Lenovo through their customer service […]
