    Used to be a "UI Programmer" meant a Windows programmer at least when it comes to native apps. It paid a whole lot of my bills for the past many years. But if the excitement from CES and ofcourse Apple Mania is anything to go by, I think I better rethink my UI side options. On the server side though, I think I will be OK for a while.

     It would be interesting though, to figure out how we have come to this situation. I mean... it's not like this Tablet thingi just fell on our laps only in the last 2 years. I worked on Windows Tablet like 10 years ago at  a Hospital charting system company. So the question it that infamous "having a taste" thing Steve Jobs talked about that worked against us ? That and the constant obsession of Microsoft internal developers with form rather than function ?
