James Kendrick and I are back with show #25! Congratulations to Josh and Heather Einstein on the birth of their child, Jacob, already becoming a Tablet PC addict. Happy Birthday to the first lady of the Tablet PC, Lora Heiny, who turned 21 this week. I discusses getting reacquantaned with the Toshiba M200 since I've been using it lately and compares it to the Gateway I left behind when I changed jobs. We talk about battery life of UMPCs and whether it's better to have an extended battery or a second standard battery. In our discussion on Vista on the Tablet PC we question why we are getting no advanced notices about any Vista-ready slates on the horizon from OEMs like Motion. Tracy Hooten goes slate. James rants on the lack of UMPC advertising- history repeating itself. And we offer two suggestions how to easily enable Flicks on touch screen Tablet PCs like UMPCs.
Enjoy the show!
