One of the big highlights for me at CES was finally meeting John Hill face to face. I’ve been corresponding with John for about 5 years now, and he was one of the first advertisers and supporters of GBM. More importantly than that, though, he’s a great friend. I’ve got a picture laying around here somewhere that I’ll post up later.
John Hill got so jazzed about using a tablet computer that he started a business to sell them five years ago. "Tablet PCs always get called a niche market," says Hill, 40, founder and president of Allegiance Technology in Horsham, Pennsylvania. "But we sell them to all kinds of people: teachers, construction managers, pilots, someone who inspects yachts, even a cowboy who uses a tablet to write down numbers while sitting on the back of his horse."
