I had no idea ...

Friday, May 20th, 2005
For a long time, I've kidded that I have at least a dozen readers of my blog. I guess I was wrong.

Recently, my blog traffic has skyrocketed - boosted by yesterday's podcasts about my Tablet PC experience.

Some highlights of what people are saying:

Eric blogs the Tecra M4 Tablet unveiling (James Kendrick)

Watch for The Tablet PC Show- Eric Mack interview (James Kendrick)

Eric Mack starts opening his Toshiba!!!  (John and his dog. This is funny)

Eric's Out of Box Experience Continues (Warner Crocker)

And, of course, Robert Scoble always has something funny to say.

Thanks. I'm honored.

I'm delighted. If nothing else, it's an opportunity for me to help add value to the community and to the people, many of whom have become friends, who have taught me so much.

Battery Life

BTW, I had issues with the M200 with battery life.

I generally got ~2.4 hrs typing/writing notes with it.

I got a bit more juice turning off the wireless, but not very much.

I'm a student, so taking notes generally doesn't allow much time to pause, so maybe the % utilization is higher for my ypurposes, I don't know.

Great podcast!

Rotation Button

Just finished listening to the podcast. Lots of fun as also very informative. I'm telling you Microsoft and OEM's should listen to this and your earlier ones to really understand the OOBE better. Makes so much sense.

Don't know how it is supposed to work on the M4 but on the M200, the rotate button only works when you pick up the tablet, hold the button down and rotate or tilt the tablet in the direction you want the orientation to be. It doesn't rotate the unit while it is sitting still and it is tied to the acceloremeter. Again, that's M200 practice, so it may be different with the M4.

re: Rotation Button

Warner, I'm still figuring it out but my buttons appear to work much differently. I'll keep you posted.

All I can say is you TabletPC people are a more fervent cult even than us Mac people!
