My Tablet Desktop / driving setup
I've been using a tablet laptop in my car since about March and I abso-tively love it! ;]
I use Road Runner as a front end from time to time but sometimes I just wanna use the OS.
I took some screenshots of how i have my OS setup. Take a look at the files attached below:
- desktop.jpg - that is how my desktop looks. notice the huge icons on the bottom of the screen
- desktopl.jpg - description of all my icons that i need (but dont really use) while driving
- winamp.jpg - how i setup winamp so when i drive i can easily see what song is playing etc.
i use road runner when i want to search for a specific song but i do that rarely. for the most part, i just launch winamp (on my huge icon bar thing) and just keep hitting next next next until i find what i want.
the other tweak i sorta made is that I made my entire desktop single click. if there is a song that i like, instead of double tapping with my tablet pen, i simply click on it once and it'll load.
the script i have is slick. i have a 1 gig usb drive that always gets mapped to the e:\ drive on my tablet. on that drive, i have a folder called 'newsongs'... on my desktop at home, i copy new songs onto that thumb drive and into that specific folder. in my car, when the tablet is fired up and ready to roll, i simply plug in the usb drive and click on the script and my new songs automatically get copied to the hard drive. i know you can do this with ez sync and a bunch of other things but this was quick and easy for me to setup and write the 1 line script. lol...
anyway, im open to comments and suggestions. just wanted to show you guys how i have my tablet laptops desktop configured!
