Change Challenge Part 4

Its been several months now since I started using Windows 8 and about a month using the Surface/RT. I upgraded my Dell XPS9000 tower to Win8 and added a Logitech Touchpad T650 (on the lookout for large format touchscreen). I’m still a bit clunky using the UI (patting your head and rubbing your stomach) however my productivity is starting to improve on the content creation side. On the content consumption it was almost out of the box that I was more productive.

I think once ability for people to pipe information to live tiles is an option, the concept of desktop will change radically: Lenovo Ideacenter hints at such. I can see myself buying a very large screen touch display to use as dashboard/control center for home & office, another for a working top (replace all my white boards), linking it all to SkyDrive / SkyDrive Pro and then using a Surface/RT & Smartphone for day to day activities when I’m not in my office or at home office.

Also ordered a Fitbit {monitors physical activity, sleep, pulse, etc.} this morning which will link up to my windows phone and home pc. Should make putting together and monitoring a healthier lifestyle easier. Hopefully there will be an integration option to HealthVault so I can consolidate all my medical/health records in one place. Have discussed this with my current doctor, could save all of us a lot of time.
