Corante > Get Real > Comfort Zones: More Road Warrior's 'Truth About Tablet PC'

Corante > Get Real > Comfort Zones: More Road Warrior's 'Truth About Tablet PC': "In a nutshell the Tablet PC can be used in a comfort zone that is more like that of a PDA, which makes it not only suitable for pretty private and comfortable use in crowded circumstances like those you encounter on an airplane, but also for taking notes at meetings (just save your notes as digital ink -- don't worry about trying to recognize the handwriting in real time, as it's not worth it). The range of zones also helps me understand why I hate hands-free cell-phones in public places: it converts a phone from very-private 'shoulder reach' to much more public 'arm's reach', or worse, 'sit back = room reach', which is extremely weird and even disconcerting!"
