Time, Tablets, and Titilation

Wow, it has been a few months. I have been busy, doing some really great things. Obviously, I haven’t spent as much time writing as I would ideally like. I plan to let go of some of my extra commitments later in the year, to hopefully allow me to concentrate on other important things more, such as writing!

In the meantime,  fitting at least some writing time, and handling work tasks means being efficient. At one point, I advised people that they would never be able to completely give up the laptop for a tablet. I am really wanting to do just that though. My current tablet is not quite up to replacing my laptop completely,  but I find myself wanting to shed my bulky laptop as often as possible.

With the upgrades in Google Drive and the office apps there, I really find that my tablet can handle my writing needs much of the time. In fact, in a pinch, even my smartphone is a capable platform. I can also do research, listen to music, stay apprised of important work communications,  and even watch adorable pet videos on Netflix.

    Indeed this will likely get better as time goes on. The new Microsoft Surface pro tablets, for example, are almost there–although they still lack the flat-out power you sometimes need. I’ll be happy when they finally integrate handwriting in a more natural way. It’s still very much an add-on.

      Yes, I have been watching the Srface Pro devices. I am not sure 3 is quite there for me yet. Part of it may be the price. The better ones are very pricey. I am so ready to ditch the laptop though. Maybe when version 4 comes out.

You throw in your 2 cents, but I only give you a penny for your thoughts. Leave me your thoughts so I can make an easy penny...
