Watch out, Apple: Windows 8 could trump the iPad - Sep 2011 - 43 views

  • Live is assumed and focused on letting an app's state roll across all devices a user has.

      A pendulum swinging back towards mainframe computing, perhaps.
  • Apple designed iOS for gesture-based input, and people took to it easily -- and developers had to think in the mind-set to even be able to deliver apps.

      hmm
  • old "finger as mouse" approach to touch was a bad idea.

      I agree, that blows.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • "Legacy" Win32s apps from Windows 7 and earlier won't get the Windows 8 Metro UI goodness unless they are at least partially revised; even then, they'll be limited. Users will find that touch, syncing, and interapplication sharing won't always work.
  • (It's no accident that Excel was a Mac application first or that Windows Word shared almost nothing with DOS Word other than file format.) Microsoft's apparent strategy creates that risk for today's developers.
  • Sloppy developers could thwart Microsoft's seeming reinvention of Windows from taking root. Or, as happened with Apple's iOS, developers could wholeheartedly adopt the Windows 8 model and deliver an amazing portfolio of apps that pulls in users and drags IT behind them.

mooSoftware : TabletDraw - 0 views

  •  
    Drawing with a tablet has always been a struggle. Typically, drawing programs (like most software) are designed to be used with a mouse. Tablet support is usually thrown in as an afterthought, under the theory that any pointing device will obey the same principles as a mouse. The result: an experience which only superficially captures the "feel" of a pen, while ignoring the subtle nuances.
