Settling In

Five weeks after receiving my Modbook, It's finally assimilated itself into my daily routine. For a while I was still switching back and forth between the Modbook and my old 12 inch G4 Powerbook as the tablet and I went through the honeymoon phase.

Now, it's part of my professional and personal life. At work it's become indispensable as my primary note taking and sketching device especially at meetings and brainstorm sessions. I lug it everywhere else as a digital sketchbook and diary.

My urgent plan is to use my Modbook as my main presentation tool at work, either integrating with, or completely bypassing my company work station. I simply port in to a monitor via mini-DVI and use Adobe Bridge with the Apple remote to pitch my storyboards. (probably with an assist from MIRA)

I'm eager to explore and implement this set-up and i'll report back here as to the result.

But for now it's been smooth sailing for the Modbook.


I'm still waiting on word regarding the shipment of the MATIAS iRizer and FOLDING KEYBOARD I ordered around 2 1/2 weeks ago. The Keyboard was supposed to be released around now so I am hoping to be notified soon. (hopefullly....)

Hiya, Louie! Gotta say "congratulations!" on the recent arrival of your ModBook baby! I'm so glad to see that you finally got it...I don't know how you managed to muster up the patience. Your new digital sketches look great as always.
Hope you're doing well. Take care --Sherm

Hey Sherm!

Yeah it was touch and go for a while there but I toughed it out and stayed patient.

It's a nice little machine and the portability is great.

Great hearing from you!!
