GBM InkShow: Touch on a MacBook? Let’s See….

  Apple Tablet PC rumors have been brewing for years, but they have hit their peak over the past several months with hints that Apple has something in the works, and the latest rumblings about Asus confirming that Apple is working on something.

GBM InkShow: OQO Model 02 Tablet PC SSD vs HDD

Solid State Drives (SSD) are the future of mobile computing, and if my experience with the SSD based OQO Model 02 is any indication, the future is a fast one. In this InkShow, I run a series of tests comparing a Model 02 1.6 ghz SSD to a Model 02 1.5 ghz HDD .  The […]

GBM InkShow: My Wife and the EeePC

The Asus Eee PC has certainly captured a lot of attention for its small size and low price of $399. Is it the mobile solution for its target market of young people and non-power users, who just need to send out an email, or create a quick document? Time will certainly tell, but in this […]

GBM InkShow: Is The Vye S37 a Viable UMPC?

Thanks to the good folks at Dynamism, I’ve had the opportunity to check out the Vye S37 Ultra-Mobile PC made by VyePC. Very similar to the Kohjinsha UMPC, (it is built on the same platform) the Vye S37 is nothing if not small and compact. The model I’m evaluating comes with 1GB of RAM and […]

And of course these days, finding a solution that is also environmentally friendly is […]

GBM InkShow: A Look at Touch on the iPhone

 One of the most exciting things to happen to Tablet PCs is the inclusion of touch. As we look forward to touch / multi-touch becoming more standard in hardware and in applications, it is important to look at implementations where touch is done well from the ground up, and not just treated as another input device. […]

GBM InkShow: The Tom Bihn Ego Bag and Brain Cell

There are many times I look into my closet and see a whole bunch of bags sitting there…  Why, because I can never seem to find the right one to carry all of my ‘stuff’.  It’s always too small, too big, not enough pockets…  and the cycle of looking always seems to continue.  Right now […]

GBM InkShow: The Shwamee Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

I’ve been looking for a good cleaning solution for the Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Superview screen for quite awhile. My only gripe about the X61 with Superview is that the screen is more than a fingerprint magnet, it attracts anything and everything and is nigh on near impossible to clean. And it isn’t just a question […]

GBM InkShow: Amtek T770 Ultra-Mobile PC

 I’ve seen a lot of Ultra-Mobile PCs here at, but I have yet to see a UMPC perform as snappy as the Amtek T770. With its good performance, configurable buttons, and well designed track stick / mouse buttons, the T770 should make the short list of anyone looking for a UMPC. Unfortunately, there are a few niggles […]

GBM InkShow: Active Ink’s Professional Designer

  When businesses begin the process of looking at Tablet PCs, one of the driving factors is that of automating forms collection.
