Tablet PC enthusiasts eager to chat online with Microsoft managers were disappointed this week. A bug in the Tablet PC software meant that Tablet PC users couldn't join the scheduled session, "Take All Your Notes Electronically with Tablet PC".

Session moderator Ken McGrath explained:-

"Unfortunately, customers should not use a Tablet PC to connect to the chat today. There is a known issue and the fix will be out after May 29th."

Users scrambled to their desktops and notebooks to participate. Would-be chatters with only a Tablet PC were left stranded.

Teething troubles, no doubt.®
