|About Cheryl Wester
Cheryl is a high school teacher that recently won a Tablet PC. This is the beginning of her diary based on using the Acer Tablet PC she won.
Day Eleven with my Tablet PC - PowerPoint and my Acer
On Saturday I presented on the Pocket PC to a Computer User Group in Mission Viejo, California. What a terrific bunch of peopleóprimarily senior citizens and all very computer literate! It proves you are never too old to learn something new! Many of them left my presentation heading to there nearest Comp USA to purchase one, including the T-Mobile Phone Edition. They really liked the Fonix Voice Dial program I used as they said they were always punching the wrong buttons on a cell phone due to the small size. Maybe the Tablet PC could be turned into a phone. The keys are definitely big enough!
Why am I telling you this on a Tablet PC site? Well, I used my Tablet to do the presentation. People kept on asking me where I got such a small laptop (remember mine has the attached keyboard). They were very impressed and want me to come back and do a presentation on the Tablet. I need to learn more about it first, though. PowerPoint worked beautifully on it but I was to chicken to try the drawing feature in front of such a large audience until Iím more comfortable with it myself.
The Tablet connected very easily to a projector and worked just like all computers. The only thing that bothered me is that the slower processor seemed to take forever to boot up. This could also be because I had quite the audience watching the entire process and asking questions, as I was getting ready.
I bought a magazine that was published in the United Kingdom. It had a disk with a few programs on it that were made for the Tablet PC. I have installed them and Iím exploring what they have to offer. So far, Iím not overly impressedóit seems to me that the programs would work on any PC and were not made just for the Tablet. It did have a few games to help you practice using the stylus but they seemed very immature and I will probably delete them.
People, many of you are extremely talented and have a lot to offer your community. Contact your local senior citizen center and see if they have a computer group or a Senior Net program. Volunteer to help the group or to do a presentation on something you are skilled at. Believe me, you will leave with by far more than you gave. Until next time.
