I avoided a tablet for a long time, primarily because I have longed used a Lenovo Tablet PC, namely the X201 Tablet. This is a traditional notebook PC with a convertible screen that is easily rotated and laid flat on the keyboard to convert into a tablet, albeit a thicker and heavier tablet than todays version of a tablet, namely the iPad and Android tablet. What I like about this PC is it's very versatile. I'm able to use it as a traditional notebook PC and easily convert it to a tablet to take notes in meetings without feeling like I'm being rude banging away on the keyboard. Instead, I write on it like a paper notebook, which doubles as a safety mechanism for me as I lose paper easily and this way, everything is on my PC. It's also touchscreen, so I've been used to scrolling a screen and pinching to zoom long before the iPad make it mainstream.Last modified on Continue reading

Touch computing is nothing new, but Apple has brought it into the mainstream, both at home and the office. If you have any type of smartphone today, you likely no longer use a stylus, like you did on the first generation of PDAs like the PalmPilot. Instead, you navigate and manage the device using your fingers. The iPad brought this to a new category of device, the tablet. More and more, we are moving away from keyboards and toward intuitive touch interfaces. If you follow pri... Last modified on Continue reading
I've written in the past about dealing with online threats, and as I write this column, we are in yet another period of increasing threats. I'm talking about viruses and spyware, the dreaded malicious software that can make their way onto your computer without your knowledge or permission. In its wake, you may be left with a computer that is no longer usable. It does not matter what computer operating system you use or what type of computer. Worse, it now often does not matter what type of anti-virus or anti-spyware software you use, either. The people who write this malicious software often know how to defeat these defenses and still infect your computers. The most recent threat ... Last modified on Continue reading
