   RE: [xml-dev] Tablet PC ink is XML (maybe SVG)

And logistically viable.    In my world, we have the belt problem;
roughly, how many devices can one hang on an officer who
has to run to catch a *customer*.  The same problem showed
up in the IETM world where the user was a soldier; every pound
of weight is that much less food or other supplies he can carry.
Then there are the hardening issues.  For a device to be logistically
viable, it has to do one thing so vital so well that it can't be
lived without (eg, laser sights); or it has to combine several
very useful applications in one box and that can quickly affect
usability.   Logistics is the art of tradeoffs to complete and
achieve a mission goal.
So while I can see some pretty direct applications of it, one
will still have to consider logistical viability.
It may cost more than the table napkin, but one doesn't
have to worry about one's date blowing their nose in it
after the drawing is done.

I think it's the kind of idea that could *really* fly since there are so many potential uses for it. Of course, it's a matter of just how useful it is and how cost effective in different settings. But I wouldn't be at all surprised to see lots of new uses come out of the woodwork in the next few months.
