So after having a bit of tablet obsession for a bit, I finally managed to get some time in at a store playing around with a few models and determined that I really don’t want one. Why? If you type with anything more than two fingers the things suck for writing as you can ‘type’ six keys at once. So back to the drawing board to find something that meets my needs of being a lighter weight option for getting some writing work done on the go.
First up: attention all bloggers…do you want to write for Moneyville? Well they are holding a new contest to find their next blogger. You can win a contract worth $4000 or second place prize at $500. Also their editor, Adam, is great to work with. I’ve done about seven article with him and he really helped me shift from my usual writing style to a more condensed format. [Oh, I’m not getting compensated for this plug…I really do like working with him.]
