The pen is mightier than the trackpad
I know this is way off topic but I can’t help myself.
I got given a Wacom tablet for my birthday recently and I think I am in love.
It looks fantastic, its brilliant for drawing and as a way to zip around the screen it kicks seven types of shit out of my trackpad. It even comes with a mouse that gives my mac a right click – weird.
Go and get one and love yourself forever.

Couldn’t agree more. I got a new one a month ago and love it. Makes me feel like I’m conducting and creating instead of simply pushing pixels around the screen.
Glad you liked it enough to share with your blogsphere and I hope that it will unleash some of that pent up creativity.
Two things I like about the wacom – one is that it creates a more direct computer human interface that mimicks somethings we have been doing for years to express ourselves – a pen. The other is that it a device that is designed to one thing really well – a little black object of desire.
I think that you are dangerous enough already with your referrals to house industries and design is kinky.
You will be telling me next that adobe cs3’s improved autotrace feature is an essential part of doing more than ‘giving good Powerpoint’.
Sell it. Buy a copy of Richard Paul Lohse’s book.
Stephen neglects to mention that I was the one who introduced him to the Wacom, but yes, after using one, a mouse just seems so clumsy.
