**NEW** Panasonic Ruggedized Tablet PC

"The Toughbook 18 is quite simply in a class by itself," said Rance Poehler, president of Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. "It will redefine the tablet PC category while setting new standards for versatility in notebook computing. Panasonic has leveraged its years of experience and engineering to design a tablet PC which provides the durability demands for both white and blue collar applications. The 'convertible' nature of the Toughbook 18 makes it ideal for use from claims adjusters to hospital nurses while also being able to withstand the pounding from Panasonic's Military and Public Safety customers. The Toughbook 18 can be carried up a latter, hung on a wall as a tablet, or mounted in a vehicle like a standard notebook," notes Poehler.

Raiders, Buccaneers, Hot Dogs, Martinis And Tablet PC's………….

What do you do after the excitement of attending the Super Bowl? If you were fortunate enough to have an invitation, you headed to San Diego's Gas Lamp Quarter for "John Salley's Best Damn Super Bowl After Party" (Presented by Microsoft) Outside E Street Alley you are greeted by red ropes and large bouncers in dark suits. Inside E Street Alley's newly renovated Blue Room guests had the opportunity to play Xbox games on a big screen and get information on the new Tablet PC's.

When we walked in we found Microsoft's Chris Barry and Kelly Berschauer surrounded by people with looks of amazement on their faces as they crowded around a table covered with a variety of Tablet PC's from Toshiba, Viewsonic, Motion Computing, Fujitsu, and more. It was fun seeing people sitting comfortably on the velvet furniture surfing the Super Bowl website and sending email from the Compaq Tablet PC's.

What do you do when you're a Microsoft MVP for Windows Tablet PC and there are people who want information? You jump in and help generate action and excitement by describing features and uses for the Tablet PC to those waiting to get close enough to the table to see what's going on with their own eyes.

Needless to say it was an amazing way to end an already amazing Super Bowl Sunday. It's just an educated guess, but I think the chances of our seeing Tablet PC's used on the sidelines of the NFL during the 2003 season are very good, very good indeed….
