Penny Arcade's sketch on a Surface Pro

Sketching on a Surface Pro

Microsoft finally released their Surface Pro. Is it a tablet or is it a PC? Who knows, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea of owning one, soon.

Interesting how this article by Gabe at the Penny Arcade resonates with me, and I’m not a professional artist.

I bought my Lenovo X220 Tablet Laptop about a year and a half ago for the reasons in the article; tablet with stylus (so I can draw on the screen), and its a PC. I purchased AutoDesk SketchBook Pro for my laptop, and my iPad, had the same gripes about trying to draw with my finger and then the fat styli on my iPad, but it was a helluvalot better on my laptop with a stylus (sorry Steve).

So maybe my next toy will be a Surface Pro as an upgrade to this laptop? Who knows? I’m also trying to get my old Wacom Digitizer to work with my Mac, lets see how that pans out.

Finally, about that Adobe Cloud subscription… its pretty neat, I have it. Its a great way to have all of Adobe’s software on the cheap :)

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

He gave a talk at UX Week 2012 conference in San Francisco in August titled The Story of Windows 8. I’ve included it below. Its definitely worth watching, as he provides insights into why Windows 8 looks the way it does. There are some nice touches in Windows 8, I did notice a couple of them.

Canon T3i EOS Utility

Wow! I couldn’t find my CD that came with my camera and Canon won’t let you install without something being on your computer already. Well that just sucks!!

Anyways thank God for Yahoo! Voices, and all the other gazillion bloggers and online communities out there. I, after much searching and reading, found the following link to help me, bruhaha…

Here’s the link to an article that helped me get to the registry keys I needed to add, yes, REGISTRY KEYS.

All this because I want to learn how to do time lapse photography… sheesh!
