    Ie., Tablet PC sory this RSS Bandit is the shit, its messing up with Windows web controls.

    I blame the controls but anyway.

    More natural ways? Well, not everyone gets accustomed to the Tablet PC easily. This is about choice.

    Btw, it shouldn’t be that hard to include a digitizer with the FlipStart – there you have your Tablet PC, XS sized. (Who can properly write on a screen that small? There are limits to usability, as with keyboards.)

    Why is a pen that hard to use?

    What do you do when somebody asks you to sign a form, do you ask for a keyboard or do you use the pen.

    You don’t have to tell ME – I got two Tablet PCs right in front of me on my desk, and I love them.

    Btw, how often do you have to sign on a computer screen today? What about the acceptance (legal) of such digital signatures. We have a long way to go here.

    Yes because I memorise my 128bit digital signiture every day.
