Just Not Into It

So Microsoft's chief software architect, Ray Ozzie, is not that into tablet PCs. Calling tablet PCs "truly niche" is something I've heard more than a couple of times around here. But as we see the price of tablet PCs come down and the touch screen or "surface" alternatives continue to be priced formidably high, I will continue to hear professors asking to borrow one of those "pen computer things." I predict that soon there will be a small percentage of faculty members here who ask for a tablet PC instead of a laptop or desktop machine. Try to put a Surface on your office desktop or run a GIS app on an iPhone!
