I lost my Tablet PC’s pen, so I used a spoon instead. When I realized that this was really weird, I asked a friend to snap a picture. If only a tour group came by and saw how crazy the people at Tech are… My only hope is that a Google Image search of my name will one day bring up me spooning a computer.
For those interested in the technical details (you know who you are!) my Toshiba Portégé M700 Tablet PC has both a Wacom digitizer interface and a touch screen. This allows me to use my fingers—well, any object apparently—to interact with the computer in addition to the digital pen. Sometimes I’ll use a real pen or mechanical pencil with the writing bits retracted. The Portégé also has a compartment in the bottom for a small “emergency pen,” which I opted to buy… I just didn’t feel like getting it out from underneath the add-on second battery this time.
