Re: Toy..

OK, I read a lot of the posts and I am still unclear as to why I "need" this thing.

Work with my images?

I use a desktop machine for beating them into submission, not some electro -etch-a -sketch that I may wish to use in an airport.

Moreover, why on earth would I want to be retouching outside my studio anyway? I don't want to work 24/7 or act like some poseur in an airport.

I am a professional. People come to my studio or visit my website to view my images. I do not meet people in Starbucks like a Craig's lister.

As for apps, I have yet to see any that are compelling. Many are cute but seldom rise beyond novelty.

In the end, once everyone is over the WOW factor it will be a ho-hum fashion accessory that everyone seems to own.
