Welcome to episode 44 of the Tablet PC Show! Matt Hoffman and I run through a large number of topics (and run a bit longer than usual, as well). It seems to be the week of beta software…

  • Electrovaya has announced a new keyboard for their Sribbler SC3000 tablets that will include an optical drive. We like this idea and think they should take it further. The Scribbler seems to be becoming the the successor in our minds to the HP TC1000/1100.
  • GottaBeMobile.com has the specs on the new Asus R1F tablet. There are some interesting features on this one.
  • Ed Holloway has already released the second beta of his ink plugin for Microsoft’s Live Writer blogging tool. And it’s great stuff!
  • Ed has also found a likely cause of performance problems on Lenovo X41 tablets and has a workaround.
  • Samsung has finally released their flash memory-based Q1 UMPC.
  • If you’re running Office 2007 beta, you need the second beta version of Windows Desktop Search 3.0, which was just released.
  • EverNote has released their 1.5 beta as well with some nice new features.
  • Windows Vista will support the touchscreens on UMPCs with a virtual mouse. But the Motion LE1600 won’t need it since it sports both a touchscreen and an active digitizer.
  • PDF Annotator has been improved with version 1.3, just released.
  • IMSI PDF to Word version 3 offers another solution for dealing with PDF files — convert them into Word documents.
  • The HiPAD II looks like an Etch-A-Sketch, is available only in Korea, and has a very interesting feature set.
  • The beta version of ClearContext version 3 looks really nice on Outlook 2007… and that’s all I’ll say about it so far.
  • The beta of Ilium Software’s InScribe virtual keyboard for tablets has just ended and during the testing we discoverd a conflict between InScribe and ActiveWords. A workaround for the problem is to disable the ActiveWords Buffer (without which it can still run just fine). In ActiveWords, go to Options -> Operating Mode and click the Advanced button. Then select the checkbox as shown here and you’ll be good to go.

If you have comments or questions or feedback, or a problem or issue with your Tablet PC for which you’d like help, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me, or leave me a voicemail right here!

Welcome to episode 43 of the Tablet PC Show! I’m joined again by Matt Hoffman for this episode and we discuss the following (among other things):

  • The University of Buffalo has a research project into a touchscreen with tactile feedback, which would be pretty cool on a Tablet PC.
  • Apple has a patent for “visual buttons” which appear to combine a screen with input devices (like a scroll wheel). Is this for the next iPod or the oft-rumored tablet?
  • GControl is a fun little drum machine program which works great on a tablet. (Via Music Thing.)
  • TabletKiosk has revved their eo with the new i7200 series, which improves performance over the original.
  • The “mystery” new UMPC device from the last episode turns out to be this Korean import which is not an Origami device, but promises six hours of battery life and should sell for only $700.
  • UltraSync from Imagine LAN may be just the thing you need to keep two computers in sync with each other.
  • Windows Live Writer (beta) is a very nice new blogging tool, and this plug-in from Ed Holloway makes it ink capable.
  • OneStat.com released the top seven operating systems in use today by web browsers. The results may surprise you (or disappoint you if you’re an Apple or Linux fan):
    1. Windows XP - 86.80 percent
    2. Windows 2000 - 6.09 percent
    3. Windows 98 - 2.68 percent
    4. Macintosh/ Macintosh Power PC - 2.47 percent
    5. Windows Me - 1.09 percent
    6. Linux - 0.36 percent
    7. Windows NT - 0.24 percent
  • ClearContext is offering $15 off a purchase of their Information Management System for Outlook. Buy version 2.0 now and get a free upgrade to 3.0. Email me for the coupon code.
  • InScribe from Ilium looks to be a nifty new input method for UMPCs and tablets. Unfortunately, it is not working (yet) on my tablet.
  • Microsoft has released a hot fix for a battery drain caused by USB 2.0 ports which do not power down correctly. You can get it here.

Matt and I also discuss various UMPCs, mobile devices, PDAs, hosted Exchange email, and other topics.

If you have comments or questions or feedback, or a problem or issue with your Tablet PC for which you’d like help, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me, or leave me a voicemail right here!

Welcome to episode 42 of the Tablet PC Show! I’m flying solo this week and jump right in…

News and Updates:

I got some help recently to solve a problem with ActiveWords. When my tablet came out of sleep mode, ActiveWords would re-start adding several seconds to the waking up. Fortunately, the folks at ActiveWords has this solution:

Some users experienced a problem with ActiveWords handling the process of coming out of Standby/Hibernation so we configured ActiveWords to shut down when entering standby, then restart coming out of standby. You can leave ActiveWords running through standby and hibernation by making the following change.

1. Open the file: “C:\Program Files\ActiveWords\Users\[username]\AWMonitor.ini” using Windows Notepad or another text editor.

2. Locate the line for “Restart After Suspend=1″ in the [Config] section and change it (or add it if it is not present) so it reads: “Restart After Suspend=0″.

3. Restart ActiveWords.

I’ve been playing a bit with FranklinCovey PlanPlus for Outlook. It’s decent, but I’m not sold on it. I’m looking for a better methodology to help control my workflow and am considering FranklinCovey as well as Getting Things Done. Any ideas?

I’ve also been playing around with MindManager by MindJet. It’s a very nice application that integrates well into Office. However I’m just not sold on mind mapping in general. Maybe I just don’t get it. Anyone want to straighten me out on this?

I’ve also been trying out PDF Annotator (very nice), but don’t think I’ll use it enough to buy it. Same thing for Anagram for Outlook.

If you have comments or questions or feedback, or a problem or issue with your Tablet PC for which you’d like help, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me, or leave me a voicemail right here!

Welcome to episode 41 of the Tablet PC Show! This week I’m joined by Matt Hoffman, who we tried to get on last week, but connection issues prevented it. We start the show with Matt telling us a little bit about himself and we get sidetracked (for the first of several times) into a discussion about his Gateway m280 tablet and how Microsoft OneNote got him interested in tablets initially.

News and Updates:

  • A company called Newton Peripherals has released the MoGo Mouse, a Bluetooth mouse which is unique in that when not being used it stores, and charges itself, in your PC Card slot. Sadly, it’s lacking a scroll-wheel.
  • A new PowerToy called RSS Send to OneNote makes it easy to copy a site’s RSS entries into a OneNote section.
  • A new Microsoft HotFix may fix battery life issues on some tablets and laptops.
  • Christian Falch is showing off an early version of a utility which promises to allow inking anywhere in Windows. We’re quite excited about this possibility and think it’s a shame that Microsoft isn’t doing this.

That last bit of news takes us into a conversation about inking in Windows, specifically in Vista, and how we’d rather ink than use the TIP.

Next, Matt talks about three freeware applications that he has found very useful:

Knockout - An Outlook companion that offers greater control over Outlook and Word.

AutoPatcher - Provides the ability to quickly install all Microsoft hotfixes and patches at once.

AutoStreamer - Automates the creation of “slipstreamed” Windows install disks with the hotfixes and patches and custom installs or information included. (More information about slipstreaming and unattended installs can be found here.)

Matt then relates his troubles with his Gateway m280 tablet. It’s a great device, but he has had numerous repair problems with it and with Gateway.

I talk about my latest toy, a Sprint PPC-6700 Windows Mobile phone and we go on to talk about some past PDAs I’ve owned, including a Jornada 820, a Casio Zoomer, and an Apple Newton. Those devices are all similar in size and weight to some of the tablets and UMPCs currently on the market and we speculate that the form factor is a winner — provided you have the right OS running on it. As a PDA they’re too big, but with the power of a full Windows XP implementation, it’s very nice.

We then delve into more about Matt’s m280 and he talks about some of the buttons on the bezel of the device and has provided these two photos of it:

He also mentions the troubles he’s had with the device’s SATA hard drive, but we save that story for another episode.

Finally we begin to wrap things up with discussions about Vonage phone service, Think Outside’s Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and how the price of gadgets goes up when you get married (it exactly doubles).

If you have comments or questions or feedback, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me, or leave me a voicemail right here!

Matt has also offered his assistance to anyone having problems with their tablet, so if you’ve got an issue and would like some help, please leave a comment or send an email and we’ll make sure Matt gets it.

I talk about my latest toy, a Sprint PPC-6700 [10] Windows Mobile phone and we go on to talk about some past PDAs I've owned, including a Jornada 820 [11], a Casio Zoomer [12], and an Apple Newton [13]. Those devices are all similar in size and weight to some of the tablets and UMPCs currently on the market and we speculate that the form factor is a winner -- provided you have the right OS running on it. As a PDA they're too big, but with the power of a full Windows XP implementation, it's very nice. We then delve into more about Matt's m280 and he talks about some of the buttons on the bezel of the device and has provided these two photos of it: He also mentions the troubles he's had with the device's SATA hard drive, but we save that story for another episode. Finally we begin to wrap things up with discussions about Vonage [14] phone service, Think Outside's Bluetooth keyboard [15] and mouse [16], and how the price of gadgets goes up when you get married (it exactly doubles). If you have comments or questions or feedback, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me [17], or leave me a voicemail right here [18]! Matt has also offered his assistance to anyone having problems with their tablet, so if you've got an issue and would like some help, please leave a comment or send an email and we'll make sure Matt gets it.

Welcome to episode 40 of the Tablet PC Show! I had hoped to have a guest co-host for this episode, but he was having connection issues, so I’m on my own.

News and Updates:

  • ClearContext, the Outlook plug-in works with Outlook 2007 beta, but has some performance problems. Brad Meador and his guys are working on them, however.
  • Immersion is showing off their VibeTonz tactile feedback touchscreen which would be very cool on a Tablet PC.
  • Ink For Word is a new plug-in for Word that allows for ink annotation and editing gestures.
  • Incoming freshmen engineering students at Virginia Tech are now required to purchase Tablet PCs for their studies.
  • The Australian C1 Group has released a nice-looking “near-UMPC” that doesn’t (but could) run Tablet PC OS.
  • Tablet Enhancements for Outlook 3.0 is now in beta 3.
  • Rob Bushway at TabletBible.com has released the English Standard Version of the Bible for OneNote 2007 beta.
  • ritePen has some issues when running on an eo Origami device.
  • Averatec has shown new photos of their upcoming UMPC.
  • OrigamiProject.com has a new contest with some excellent prizes.
  • Barry Doyle at TabletPCReviewSpot.com gives some excellent advice on getting the most from your tablet’s battery.
  • The Samsung Q1 Origami device features an “AV Station” mode running Windows XP Embedded.
  • Dennis Rice at GottaBeMobile.com writes about MathJournal 2.0 from xThink. It’s a very slick application if you’re 1) a LOT smarter than me and 2) into math.
  • Microsoft has released Private Folders 1.0, which lets you encrypt files on your hard drive.
  • Paul Thurott’s SuperSite for Windows breaks the news that Microsoft has refreshed the look of their Aero Basic UI in Windows Vista. It’s not a pretty as Aero Glass, but it’s definitely an improvement.

Other than the news and updates, my only topic of discussion this time around is when to try Vista on my tablet? I mean as my primary OS. Is it ready yet? I’m not sure.

If you have comments or questions or feedback, please feel free to leave a comment here, email me, or leave me a voicemail right here!

Welcome to episode 39 of the Tablet PC Show! We have a special guest co-host this week, listener and Tablet PC enthusiast Neema Saeedi from Vancouver, B.C.

News and Updates:

After the news, Neema and I continue the discussion I started last week about the relative merits of Macs versus PCs. Neema is a long time Mac user and brings his experience to the discussion.

Having both recently purchased new Tablet PCs (a Toshiba M200 in both cases) we next talk about the decision process when trying to choose a new tablet. Features, size, and of course, budget all come into play.

Welcome to episode 38 of the Tablet PC Show! This week we jump right in with a few bits of news:

News and Updates:

Next, I give an update on my new (to me) Toshiba M200. The short version: I love it.

I then talk about RSS aggregation in Outlook 2007 and Internet Explorer 7, both currently in beta. The functionality is great… when it works. The same goes for blogging from Word 2007.

I give a little shout out to GottaBeMobile.com and especially their Ink Shows which I’ve been enjoying quite a bit.

I end the show with a bit of a rant. Anyone who tries to tell you that the UI in Windows Vista or XP is inferior to that in Apple’s Mac OS X is just plain wrong. And I give specific examples to back up my claim.

Stay tuned for our next episode! I will have a special guest co-hosts for that and the next few episodes. Don’t forget that you can leave me a voicemail with your comments or questions right here!

Welcome to episode 37 of the Tablet PC Show! This is the first episode I’ve recorded on my new Tablet PC, a Toshiba M200.

Getting the M200 up and running was quite an adventure; a tale with which I begin this podcast. The tablet arrived with no operating system and no good way to install one without buying some expensive additional hardware, so I tried some other tricks, including the use of Knoppix Linux and the BartPE version of Windows.

After my story, I get to the news and updates for this episode…

News and Updates:

Stay tuned for our next episode! I hope to have a special guest with whom we’ll do something a little different…

Welcome to episode 36 of the Tablet PC Show!
I had anticipated that this episode would be shorter than usual, but I’m apparently more long-winded than I thought and ended up going for roughly the usual length of time.

News and Updates:

After the news and updates, I announce my own personal news: I’ve bought a new Tablet PC to replace my existing one.

Be sure to answer our Poll Question for this week.

This week we have a whole slew of sites of the week, all of them blogs by the developers of Office 2007:

I had anticipated that this episode would be shorter than usual, but I'm apparently more long-winded than I thought and ended up going for roughly the usual length of time. News and Updates: HP announces [2] a new tablet, the tc4400, which is a convertable style device and apparently an update to the tc4200. Word 2007 [3] is going to support blogging directly from within the application. And OneNote 2007 [4] will, too. Updates are available [5] for GeckoTip and Grab And Drag for Firefox users. The DualCor cPC will be shipping soon [6], but without WiFi or Bluetooth or 3G cell phone radios built in. A Korean company called NAVIsis has released [7] an attachment that turns any monitor into a touchscreen. OrigamiProject.com has published [8] a great article with tips and tricks for tweaking your UMPC. Sony has announced [9] the Vaio UX, a micro PC that is not a UMPC. Samsung releases [10] some performance numbers for their new hybrid flash memory / hard drives. Samsung has also announced [11] the Q1-SSD UMPC which replaces the hard drive with a 32GB flash memory drive. It's fast, but pricey. Microsoft has filed [12] patents for using UMPCs to control home appliances. Microsoft has also released [13] the beta 2 version of Office 2007, including Outlook 2007 and OneNote 2007 to the public. After the news and updates, I announce my own personal news: I've bought a new Tablet PC [14]to replace my existing one [15]. Be sure to answer our Poll Question for this week [16]. This week we have a whole slew of sites of the week, all of them blogs by the developers of Office 2007: http://blogs.msdn.com/willkennedy/ [17] - Outlook http://blogs.msdn.com/chris_pratley/ [18] - OneNote http://blogs.msdn.com/joe_friend/ [19] - Word http://blogs.msdn.com/pjhough/ [20] - SharePoint http://blogs.msdn.com/marco/ [21] - Groove http://blogs.msdn.com/excel/ [22] - Excel http://blogs.msdn.com/jensenh/default.aspx [23] - Office UI Don't forget that you can leave me a voicemail with your comments or questions right here [24]!

Welcome to episode 35 of the Tablet PC Show!
We jumpt right in this week to the…

News and Updates:

After the news, I relay some information gleaned in an entry over at OrigamiProject.com about the Microsoft TouchPack which is included with the UMPCs. It’s much more than just a new program launcher and DialKeys keyboard.

Next, I talk about an interesting car commercial I saw that made me think of marketing Tablet PCs and from there I tell the story of a meeting I was in where the Tablet PCs outnumbered the laptops. (I also tell of the problems a couple of the tablets were having…)

Then, I read an email from listener Jason from Memphis, who is having a severe problem with his tablet and is looking for a way to restore it. I give a couple of potential solutions and ask that anyone else who may have questions about their Tablet PC or tablets in general, send me an email with their question. If one person is having the problem or asking the question, there are probably many others who would benefit from the answer.

Following that, I do a short review of Tablet Enhancements for Outlook (TEO) version 3.0 which is currently in beta testing. It is a plug-in for Outlook that makes using the application with a pen much easier, but it’s also much more than that. It’s a full-featured note taking application that embeds itself in Outlook and can rival OneNote or other applications. (Tracy at The Student Tablet PC has been talking about this as well.)

Finally, I name UMPCBuzz.com as our site of the week.

Be sure to answer our poll question for this week, which involves what you’d like to hear on this podcast in the future.

And don’t forget that you can leave me a voicemail with your comments or questions right here.

From there, I delve into my entire process for creating the podcast — it’s all done on my Tablet PC.Welcome to episode 34 of the Tablet PC Show!I start this week’s show by apologizing for last week’s show… Or more specifically, the problems I had getting the right podcast uploaded with the right show notes. From there, I delve into my entire process for creating the podcast — it’s all done on my Tablet PC.I’m taking a slightly different approach with this episode, relying less on a formal outline for the show and more on my notes that I’ve put into OneNote. Hopefully it will sound less forced (or boring) and more natural.

From there, I delve into my entire process for creating the podcast — it’s all done on my Tablet PC.I’m taking a slightly different approach with this episode, relying less on a formal outline for the show and more on my notes that I’ve put into OneNote. Hopefully it will sound less forced (or boring) and more natural.Please let me know what you think! As always you can leave a comment here or email me. But now you can also leave me an audio comment (much like a voicemail).

On to the News and Updates that are the entirety of this episode:

  • Samsung has announced the inital price of their Q1 UMPC: $1200-1500 USD. Ouch! This is far too high, in my opinion, to be successful. But they also announced an upcoming $700 USD UMPC for later this year. Much better!
  • DualCor has also announced pricing for their cPC combination Tablet PC and Windows Mobile Pocket PC: $1500-2000 USD. Another very high price! But this is geared towards the enterprise market rather than consumers and may do okay at this price point..
  • Fujitsu has announced the T70S UMPC (sort of) tablet. It’s got an 8.9″ screen and is actually a convertable with an attached keyboard.
  • At risk of turning this into the “All Samsung” episode, Samsung has also released some accessories for the Q1 UMPC, including a car charger (good idea)!
  • Google has launched the Google Calendar application, which eventually will integrate with Outlook.
  • Microsoft Research has a tool to help victims of mistyped URLs who get sent to unsavory websites, but it’s probably more of a help to IT types than end users.
  • Samsung (again) patents a technology for a virtual form and pen input. Wouldn’t a virtual keyboard be nice on slate tablets?
  • Averatec announces a UMPC-like device, that looks like an overgrown Sidekick and may or may not actually be a Tablet PC.
  • One last bit of Samsung news, this one being something they’d probably prefer not mentioned at all… It’s a demo of UMPC devices that went horribly wrong.
  • Finally… The big news of the week. Is Apple getting closer to launching a Tablet PC? And will it be a UMPC? Recent developments make it look very possible.

Welcome to episode 32 of the Tablet PC Show! I’m joined for this episode by a very special guest, Brad Meador of ClearContext.

For this episode, we break from our usual format and concentrate on a single topic: Managing your email flow using ClearContext, a plug-in for Outlook that can be a big help in this area.

We talk about how the tool prioritizes your email and facillitates filing and organizing it. We also discuss the new version 2.0 of the tool and the new features it offers. We then go over some of the technical details, particularly the difficulty of writing an Outlook plug-in and the remarkable stability of ClearContext. And we mention the integration between ClearContext and ActiveWords.

Finally, we break down the two versions of ClearContext; the fully-features IMS Pro, which costs $69.99 for a single user (with a 30-day trial) and the Inbox Manager, which is free.

Welcome to episode 33 of the Tablet PC Show!

  • You can now run a free copy of VisiCalc, the world’s first spreadsheet program, on your computer. Microsoft reportedly uses VisiCalc to test the backwards compatibility of their operating systems and you can see it works fine on my tablet:
  • VisiCalc running on my tablet

    LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE

    Welcome to episode 31 of the Tablet PC Show! I’m a bit tardy with this episode and I put the blame for my lateness on my children…

    News and Updates:

  • Blinkx has released an automatic search tool called Pico that performs searches automatically based on what you’re reading or writing.
  • A company called Elekson has announced fabric keyboards for the upcoming UMPC devices. However, it appears that they’ll be sold to OEMs only.
  • Logitec has announced an update to their io2 digital pen that improves the handwriting recognition and adds gestures. I go on to discuss the usefulness of the io2 pen with or without a Tablet PC.
  • After the news, I delve into the new Origami and UMPC devices. I spend some time discussing their features and dimensions and worry about the low resolution (800×480) of their screens. Will Windows applications run well enough at that resolution? And then the big question which is, will YOU buy one of these things? Are they too small and underpowered, or is the extra portability too good to pass up?

    That, in fact is the poll question of the week, which you can take here.

    This certainly won’t be the last time we discuss the UMPCs and I expect they’ll become a regular part of the podcast as they become a major part of the Tablet PC world!

    Next, I discuss several options for improving your use of multiple monitors and/or multiple systems sharing the same keyboard and mouse. There are of course plenty of hardware solutions for using multiple monitors or multiple systems, but they can be expensive and they’re not necessary. There are very good, very inexpensive software solutions available that can help you make the most of hardware you already have.

    Windows supports using mutliple monitors on a single system right out of the box. And with most Tablet PCs or laptops, you don’t even need any extra hardware; just plug in the external monitor and you’re ready to go. However, there are ways to improve your multiple-monitor experience and UltraMon can help. It provides taskbars for each monitor (something Windows does not), an easy way to snap windows from one monitor to another, and the ability to maximize windows across all monitors. It has additional features as well and runs for $39.99, however that price will let you use it on every PC in your home.

    If you’ve got a desktop machine that doesn’t have a second video card, hooking up a second monitor could be a problem. But with MaxiVista, you can make use of any other PC you happen to have lying around, like your Tablet PC, an old laptop, or a second desktop system. MaxiVista sends the display information for a second monitor over your network to the second machine which then uses its monitor as a secondary monitor for your primary system. It can chew up quite a bit of network bandwidth, but generally works very well. MaxiVista costs $29.99 (which is cheaper than it used to be) and also includes some KVM functionality…

    KVM is an acronym for “Keyboard/Video/Mouse” and it refers usually to hardware that lets you operate several systems from a single keyboard, mouse, and monitor. The solution that MaxiVista provides isn’t quite KVM because you’re still using two monitors, so it’s really “KM”, but it is very useful. Assuming you have two systems with monitors sitting side-by-side, MaxiVista will let you roll your mouse pointer off of one monitor and on to the second one. Once your mouse is on that second monitor, your keyboard and mouse will control that second system. To use your primary system again, just roll your mouse back over to the primary monitor.

    A cheaper way to get this same functionality (but without the multiple-monitor functionality that MaxiVista provides) is offered by Synergy, an open-source utility that is free. It can be tough to configure, but will run on Windows, Mac, and Linux, and the price is certainly right.

    Another similar option is Desktop Rover from Neslo Software. It is not free, but adds Pocket PC support to the mix, letting you roll your mouse onto your Pocket PC and control that device as well. It costs $19 for a single license that will let you control one PC and one Pocket PC, but to control two PCs, you’ll need two licenses.

    As long as we’re talking Pocket PCs now, there is another solution available for those devices as well. SideWindow from Innobec Technologies lets you use your Pocket PC screen as an additional monitor when docked. It doesn’t add a lot of extra screen real-estate, but your Pocket PC screen probably isn’t doing much of anything useful when it’s docked anyway and the extra space is perfect for a Yahoo! Widget or two.

    I completely forgot to name a Site of the Week, but I’ll be sure to do so next time.

    LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE

    Welcome to episode 30 of the Tablet PC Show! This time it’s just me; no co-host.

    News and Updates:

  • In podcasting news, Ricky Gervais, creator and star of the BBC’s “The Office” will make his podcast for-pay only. It is the first subscriber-funded podcast that I’m aware of.
  • Samsung has introduced a 17″ LCD monitor with an integrated active digitizer.
  • HP has announced the “Misto” touchscreen coffee table for playing games or sharing photos.

    What’s the deal with Microsoft’s upcoming Origami project? Is it a new Tablet? Just some new technology? We round-up the various rumors and bits of information available.

    Next we discuss the new version of Box.net, a web-based file storage and backup solution that features a free service with 1GB of storage (but an interesting 5MB per-file size limit). The new version of the site is full of AJAXy goodness. Via sarahintampa.com.

    We discuss Microsoft’s announced free VOIP service for Windows Mobile. Is it a cell phone killer? Will it be available on Tablet PCs? Would you want it on your Tablet PC??

    Our last topic of this episode is the following question: Can Tablet PCs be good for your health?

    The first possible anwser comes in the form of relief from tendonitis and repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. Using a pen instead of a keyboard and mouse may provide relief, accoriding to a physical therapist.

    The second answer comes through using your Tablet PCs to enhance workouts on a ProForm treadmill or other exercise equipment. The ProForm equipment can interact with a service at iFit.com which you can run on your Tablet PC.

    Here are a couple of screenshots of iFit workouts in progress:

    In summary, the answer to the question is Yes! A Tablet PC can actually be good for your health.

    Wrapping up, I gave out the Poll Question of the Week, which is: At what point do you forego using your Tablet’s pen and use the keyboard?
    Take the poll here
    .

    Finally, the Site of the Week. : GottaBeMobile.com, a new site by Microsoft MVPs Rob Bushway and Dennis Rice.

    Next episode: Ways to use dual (or more) monitors with your tablet or to share a keyboard and mouse between multiple systems.
