    Yep, that’s about how I feel most of the time…

    Hehe, so true. I’ve found that it’s much easier if I hold the tablet in my lap like I’m reading a book and only look at the screen.

    What I dont understand about those pads is why not just get a touchscreen? then you actually see where your hand is on the screen!

    Because the cartoon isn’t actually true, the tablets are pressure sensitive, and touchscreens are awkward if you have a big desktop monitor.

    Touchscreens and touchscreen computers alike cost way more than a tablet. A good Bamboo tablet only costs $90.
