Marc Orchant and James Kendrick chatted for an hour with the number one Tablet PC evangelist, Robert Scoble, who did the interview sitting on the red couch. Robert was raring to talk about a whole lot of wide-ranging topics and everyone will take a lot away from this show. He talks about his Toshiba M205 and M4 and elaborates which one he carries and why. We talk about the Gateway Convertible Notebook and the improvements being noted with Tablet PCs appearing in more retail space. Scoops of note- the MSN Virtual Earth team are releasing something really cool in the next few days and the Microsoft Tablet PC team will have a major announcement "really soon" (we tried but Robert wouldn’t say exactly when). Future prediction from Robert- next year will be the year of HDTV so get ready.
Links of note from the show:

- Naked Conversations– Robert promises a copy of the book to James on the air! You are all my witnesses.
