One wonders what the rationale is for changing the names of programmer-level layers from fairly memorable brands to utterly forgettable TLAs.
Well, there’s a nice coincidence — a brand-new (well, used, but not by me) M1400 and the Longhorn / Vista beta. In the words of the immortal James Doohan, “How do they mix? I’ll let you know…” Update: Microsoftian Hilton Locke warns “many of the user interface items (read: Tablet PC Input Panel, Journal, et […]
Loren speaks of hardware driving the success of the Tablet PC, and Iggy agrees, going so far as to say that “computing with a pen is unnatural.” “Computing with a pen is unnatural.” Okay, I can agree with the words, but only to the extent that it’s tied to “computing with a keyboard is unnatural,” […]

Loren asks how one would spend various amounts to promote the Tablet PC. $10 million. I would “bake in“ ink and voice input support to a word processor and spreadsheet. If I didn’t happen to have a world-dominating suite of office products, I’d do it in Open Office for heaven’s sake. And I’m not talking about ink […]
I’d like to enter the OneNote PowerToy competition and, since getting a fourth Tablet PC is not particularly motivating I’ll even tell you what I’ve got — your voice notes on your Smartphone / PocketPC get automatically changed into OneNote items.
