There could be an app developed for it, maybe?
When I first saw some pictures of what the tablet might look like I saw some drawing mock programs, I am not an artist but they intersted me. I can't see a program like this running on the ipad. Maybe I am wrong, I could just imagine what other software could be created for an os x multitouch tablet.
Exactly, this has zero to do with the device it's on. The app could be reproduced to the iPad, but then again this particular one is clearly very specialized for an electrical engineer. Apple would be silly to try and focus on this type of specialized input for the masses. Using your fingers is the appeal to a touch device and not having to worry about where your damn stylus went. Stylus has it's place for some things, but general use on the iPad would be annoying. Multitouch is the best way to interact with the iPad for a large percentage of it's apps. The others that need a stylus can buy aftermarket ones that work with on the iPad/iPhone.It's definitely a cool program (Evodia Script&Go), but there's nothing that special about it that would preclude it from working on the iPad with a stylus accessory. In other words, it's the app itself thats cool, not the device or OS.
...or the .01% using PC Table for paperless invoice, as Circuit City (BuhBye) did when they took my 'digital signature' after setting up my HDTV last year(and a half). I couldn't believe how HEAVY the think was, I think HP was the brand, but how proud the 'Technician' was that he had one.That's very cool... for the 0.001% of the population who needs to do circuit design (I wonder if you can export to .dsn / OrCAD format?) & technical drafting.
Actually, I could envision a version of these applications being brought to the iPad. It's big enough that you could actually draw shapes with your finger. You could even play techno music in the background while you do it...
+1. Why unnecessarily overtax a system when 9x% of the time the version of OSX on the iPhone and iPad is sufficient? When Apple releases OS4 with multi-tasking, the remaining <10% will sing a different tune.don't want full OSX. don't want stylus.
Exactly. Why does this seem so tough for people to grasp?It's definitely a cool program (Evodia Script&Go), but there's nothing that special about it that would preclude it from working on the iPad with a stylus accessory. In other words, it's the app itself thats cool, not the device or OS.
They need to rebrand that thing and try to work a way to cut the cost a bit. It's definitely a great machine and they have their own software addition coming soon (I did some research on it couple days ago - I'm in the market for one) that aids the usability.And it didn't really take off.
So thinking outside the box, in your opinion, is making a tablet PC just like everyone else, just with OSX.
Actually, last I checked, the ModBook only uses a stylus.
The ModBook Pro, however, can, but it's unreleased.
No but Apple is.I thought the whole concept looked really interesting and cool until I saw the thing still weighs over 5 pounds. No way I could imagine holding that in one hand for very long. I wonder if they ever looked into doing a Macbook Air version.
