So now that sketchcast.com is out in the wild, all the software and hosting tools needed to sketchcast are ready to go. There was however, one more snag: you can’t sketch with a mouse. You need either a tablet PC or a drawing tablet. Now if you’re feeling extravagant, the Wacom tablets (pronounced “wack’em!” I think) are great.
Of course not everyone wants to spend $300 on a tablet so they can occasionally scribble. Well have I got a deal for you (read with a late night infomercial tone). Computer Geeks has USB tablets for as little as $29.99. Yes $29.99!
Now mind you, I can’t vouch for the quality of such devices but hey, it’s $30 bucks. That’s what, four cups of coffee at Starbucks?
