The phrase in circulation about people like me is YABHTU (Yet Another Blissfully Happy Tablet User) and Eric’s odyssey reminds me of a phrase used by CS Lewis when he described his conversion from atheism as ‘That night I was the most reluctant convert in all England.’ Eric quotes me in his post ‘A Step Away from being YABHTU’. Check it out and you’ll see what I mean.
Well, I don’t want to spiritualise the Tablet experience, but Eric demonstrates an admirably critical approach to this different way of working. Too many of us emotionally by-pass our critical faculties. Hence the birth of fads. Eric’s cautious adoption of his Tablet convinces me that the Tablet is not a fad, and sales are beginning to reflect this. Robert Scoble reports that they are up 37% per annum.
My chiropracter complained to me (!) the other day that I was spending so much time hunched up over my Toshiba M200; it’s not doing my neck much good at all. So I am about to take Matt Buchanan’s advice and purchase a multi-dock. I’ll let you know how I get on.
