Gary, a GottaBeMobile.com reader, wrote to me on Sunday about purchasing his first Tablet PC and how he was able to put it right to work. It is a heck of a story and one I thought all of our readers might enjoy:
First, let me tell you how much I appreciate your site. I’m relatively new to Tablet PC’s (being a die-hard Mac man), but I needed to get a Windows machine for some of the consulting work I do, and was able to get an HP TC1100 – absolutely love the machine, and your site has been a BIG help! I also appreciate your faith journey, and have been praying for you and your family.
Anyway, I did a 4th of July wedding today, on the shores of Lake Michigan. It was a beautiful, but very windy day, and I decided to try to do the entire service off my TC1100. What a hoot! I typed in the wedding service, the meditation and the whole order in sequence, kicked the font to 18 points, and then made a PDF out of the whole thing. That way, I could rotate to portrait mode, and use the thumb switch on the side of the computer to advance the PDF (viewed in full screen mode) one page at a time. The service went well, and I wasn’t fumbling for books, bibles and notes in the semi-gale force winds. Next hurdle…preaching from the tablet!
The one interesting item was that there were six open WiFi networks on that resort beach area, so I shut of the WiFi lest I get a Skype call mid-service!
Thanks again for your informative site.
