You hear the phrase "gets it" a lot when people talk about Tablet PCs. As in, so and so "gets it" when they say something profound about how inking and the Tablet make life easier. I had this turned around on me today by my 82 year old mom.
Mom has no clue what I do or how I do it other than I "work with computers". She has never touched a computer nor had any desire to do so as they are for those who have been properly trained, and she hasn’t. Today I was sitting at her kitchen table helping her do something and I was using my little Tablet PC.
Mom: Is that a computer?
Me: Yes. It’s a Tablet PC.
Mom: Like a Big Chief tablet?
Me: Well, I guess you could say that but it’s also a computer.
Mom: You’re writing right on the screen.
Me: Yes, Mom, this is what makes a Tablet PC so special- you can write on it and it understands.
Mom: So I guess you could say it "gets" what you are doing.
Me: I love you Mom.
