I Love My Tablet PC

Posted by Garth on Thursday, May 29, 2008

I need to get into a better mindset than I was in the previous post, so I figure I'll regale what I believe to be the most awesome usage of a tablet PC ever.

Got the offer on my condo. It was emailed to my realtor as a PDF. She forwarded it to me. I printed the PDF to Windows Journal, the built-in uber tablet application. Lets you do annotations and write wherever you want, and it shows up as a printer object so you can "print" to it from any application. So anyway, I get the 8 page offer in Windows Journal, do all my changes, signatures, initials, etc. right onscreen, re-print to PDF and re-send to my realtor. So all that paper crap that's normally involved with this sorta thing was totally unnecessary, as was faxing and/or printing. Dealt with the offer 100% electronically. No paper involved. As I've been quoted saying before, paper should only be used in the bathroom (or "toilet" as they say here).

Congrats on the condo offer!! Your 4hr work week isn't so far away.

ps: Tablets are for salesmen and people that like Macs. No self respecting programmer uses a tablet.

Good thing I'm not a programmer. I'm a vagabond. Programming sounds like work.
