Submission + - Is there a use for tablets for geeks? 2

garyebickford writes: "I'm just wondering — is there any real use for a fondleslab for a programmer or sysadmin? I just don't see what the use of these things is, even for the great unwashed. I have on occasion used my cell phone to log in to a server and do minor maintenance, but I would not use the phone for programming or editing beyond some triviality like a hosts file except in extreme circumstances. Touchpads are too big to fit in a pocket, with resolution too low to do any useful work (for biz types maybe a small spreadsheet or something, but that's a different group), and without a cover they seem to me to be too vulnerable to scratching and breakage.

So, please enlighten me with all your collective wisdom, and warm me with your flames."
