Are Pen Based Computers Making A Comeback?
from the try-try-again dept
An Economist article that takes a look at the sudden return of pen-based computing. It’s been tried before, and failed, but now companies (including Microsoft) think they know what customers want. I definitely think they could be useful in some ways. If the technology was cheap enough, I would think that all laptops would work with touch sensitive screens. Then, if you make the screens tilt correctly – like some Sony’s and Sharp’s already do (or even make them detachable) then every laptop could also be a “tablet” when needed.
