Writing and Navigating On A Tablet Has Never Been Smoother

New carbon fiber covered tip, new colors, new feel: Bamboo Stylus 3rd Generation to be revealed at IFA 2014 in Berlin

TOKYO and VANCOUVER, Wash., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Living in the digital age, computers and all kinds of mobile devices have become such a natural part of daily life, most people do not think about whether to use them, but only how they could be made even more intuitive and comfortable. That is also true for all touchscreen devices, says Mike Gay, Head of Wacom Consumer Business: "There are a lot of navigation functions that feel much easier using a pen instead of your fingers – let alone writing or drawing."

Undisputedly a pen is the most natural tool for human beings to express thoughts and ideas. Based on a 30 year legacy of inventing, developing and manufacturing digital pen devices, Wacom now presents 3rd generation Bamboo Stylus solo (for capacitive devices) and Bamboo Stylus duo as a combination with a traditional ball pen for use on capacitive devices and all sorts of paper. Both products carry a new, carbon coated rubber tip that makes sure of a very smooth and near-natural feel while writing, sketching or navigating directly on the screen. Wacom also introduces some fresh colors: "People can choose from six trendy colours: silver and grey for the traditionalists and shiny blue, bright green, sunny orange and girlish pink for the 'fashionistas.'"

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.
