Tom mentioned Windows on tablets came out in 2002, but Windows for Pen
Computing came out in 1992 during the great pen scare of the late
80s / early 90s.

It first launched on the Momenta M1 but shortly after on tablet boxes. – Chris the Podcaster

I’m with Molly, why do these a-hole execs always say the people using
the bandwidth they pay for are hogs/a-holes/muppets etc.

Surely a much better way of saying it for them would be to say “If you
don’t use as much bandwidth as other people you shouldn’t have to pay
as much, you should get a discount.”

It says the the exact same thing but one is much nicer.

Note. I’m in Australia see we have data caps on everything. I’m on a
160 gigs a month. As long as its at a reasonable price I don’t mind
the system, sure I’d love unlimited. However I’d much prefer a faster
network where I know exactly how much I can use a month and not have
services throttled. If you are paying for the bandwidth an ISP has no
excuse for throttling your connection as you have already paid for the
service. – Adam

I may just not be paying close enough attention, but it seems as though nobody at cnet is discussing the Adam tablet with the Pixel Qi display that is being shown at CES this week. In my opinion, this thing is probably one of the coolest devices on display, that actually brings the Pixel Qi out of the Vaporware category and into the light of day. Also, imagine if Apple announced a tablet (we’ll see) with this display that could do movies, games, music, AND read magazines and books with reflective light a-la Kindle. I really think this is huge news, and it doesn’t seem like anybody but engaget seems to care.

Love the show,
Toby from Salt Lake
