tablet computers & "smart displays"

2003-01-06 18:10:49+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

I've been batting a few things back and forth with Robert Scoble about "Tablet PCs". He suggests a few applications and makes comparisons to PDAs and laptops. I wanted to find the online portion of our discussion, but his comment counts seems broken right now. I think I've got an application for a keyboardless PC, but to make that a viable form factor it's got to have a camera and a good microphone built in. If you're going to remove one I/O device, it needs to be replaced with better ones, otherwise it's just a more fragile book.

With that in mind, Henry Norr talks about Bill Gates' enthusiasm for the "smart display" in Bright Guy, Dumb Idea.
