Mac OS X has some great built in technology called INK. This is character recognition, much better than Palm. It allows for writing on screen and filling search dialogs etc without the need for a keyboard.
Unfortunately, INK is only available if you own a Wacom tablet and have the drivers installed - so I thought.
Here is how to enable INK on ANY Mac with OS X (tested with 10.4.2) and make use of it using a touch screen display (I use a carTFT 7''):
- Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/
- Double Click Ink.menu. The INK Icon will appear in the tray (upper right area)
- Chose "Open Ink Setting" (or similar, my OS X is German) from the INK icon's menu
- Enable Ink by clicking the according check box. Voilá!
It really works. And it is so cool, I tell you...

I always wondered but I assumed it won't work. Wow. I'll have to play with it sometime.
