Where are you lately?

I find myself using my Android tablet more than my laptop to interact with the web. I don't have a fancy phone, but imagine if I did I'd use that also. I imagine I'm not alone in this movement toward devices other than the computer as a physical place of interaction. I do consume more than I create on the tablet. I still find a keyboard a necessity for real content creation and don't really care for the on-screen version.

Where do you access your places? I bet for most, it's on some sort of portable device today. Will the computer go away? I don't think so, but it may move more toward the tablet and smaller portable devices. We already see the trend with windows 8 and its apps. See you in your place.

More on OneNote

I just saw a page from Microsoft on OneNote for Android and it's sort of right and sort of not. The app is OK if you are reading or working on EXISTING books but needs some work if you are creating pages from scratch. As you might know I'm a major OneNote fan. I think it's the one application that big M got right. I have often said that a tablet with a fully-functional OneNote will get SERIOUS consideration from me. I sure hope that the Win8 tablets have that sort of support. Right now, the app on the Android is OK for my use, but I really would like to see it more fully-functional and not so dependent on SkyDrive.
