After thinking about all of the serious things that you can do with a Tablet PC, I’ve decided that it’s time to kick back a little.
So far, we’ve been through things like:
- Sketching and quoting jobs
- Making presentations
- Working in warehouses and factories
- Taking notes at conferences, at school and in meetings with clients
- Mind mapping
- Capturing signatures and signing forms
- Working on planes
After all that hard work, you deserve to have your Tablet PC working for you in your down time.
John Hancock of Adelaide, South Australia emailed me:
I have an XBox with the XBox media centre software installed. This has a web interface and I can sit in my lounge chair with my tablet in hand controlling the media center using the pen. Much easier than using the remote. I was listening to some music last night and was browsing through my play lists selecting random songs. A very pleasant way to spend an evening.
Right on John.
I don’t want to sound like a geek, but… ok, who am I kidding?
Just quietly, there are many times that I have been caught sitting back on the lounge, enjoying a cup of coffee while surfing the latest Tablet PC blogs.
Actually, everyone I know who has a Tablet PC seems to indulge in some “couch surfing.”
Of course “couch surfing” is a pretty natural thing to do with a Tablet PC because it’s not like lugging around a laptop. It’s especially comfortable with a slate Tablet PC like the LE1700 that I use.
