Feeling old

I received my high school's annual report in the mail today. Mostly, it's a list of donors, but there is some actual content. As I read the president's letter, I discovered that each freshman this year received an HP 4200 Tablet PC "not only for learning, but also for organizing and giving structure to their knowledge."

When I was a freshman I learned to type on a manual because "electric typewriters teach you bad form." You know, push instead of strike. We did have an HP 2000F and a handful of VT100's in the computer room. They did replace the manuals with a Mac lab at some point.

I'm not a huge fan of tablets, so it will be interesting to see how this works out. Do they really add value?
