This looks like a real boon for students who are sight impaired. Arizona State students created a solution using OneNote that will make it easier for students who have difficulty reading notes on boards at the head of a classroom.

EraThink is hoping to combine the two in a portable form factor with its EraPalm device, which will compete with devices like the Razor Switchblade concept and the […]
HP’s John Rubenstein recently appeared on the Engadget Show and clarified a bit about how webOS will run on all those non-tablet HP computers. Apparently it is going to run in a window on Microsoft Windows. I haven’t watched the video yet, but according to mobiputing, this won’t be a dual boot solution nor will […]

At first glance, the sight of Meinolf Althaus holding a hammer over a slate brings me back to Fujitsu’s earlier claim of “slate-beating”, but it’s all part of a presentation explaining the philosophy that guides their slate-making decisions with the upcoming Stylistic Q550 being the target. Of the lesson, not the beating.
Mary Jo Foley is linking to some slide assets from Microsoft that are intended to show Microsoft partners how to stem the tide of the iPad and other Tablets coming down the pike. Yeah, I know this might all be too little too late, but even more troubling, as well as more predictable, Microsoft proves […]
So the Big Ballmer took the wraps off Windows for ARM, which turns out will be the next version of Windows, ruining predictions by myself and others that he would be showing Windows Embedded Compact 7. Can’t say I’m too upset by that, particularly since there’s more to this story than missing a prediction.

Already during this holiday season I’ve set up or answered questions about setup on two Windows devices, one Mac, one iPad. I have at least one more Windows device to […]
