Bill Gates explains why there's a whole new way of experiencing the personal computer that's ushered in by the Tablet PC. The tablet has been a dream that I and many other people have had for years and years.

He refers to Memex, a machine which dates back to 1945 in Vannevar Bush writing. He points out that its a bit more mechanical to what we have to today.

Further in his demonstration, he said for countries with large alphabets like Japan, China and Korea, the keyboard is somewhat of a challenge and doing handwriting recognition software for those alphabets requires a lot of special effort. Bill Gates also explained how Business week, Forbes, New Yorker, and several Magazines were creating digital content for the Tablet PC.
