  1. The one app that Microsoft loves to point out is Adobe Photoshop, mostly as the editing app will run without issue on the company's range of Surface Pro tablets. Unfortunately though, Photoshop is designed to be operated with a keyboard...

    Painters have been using brushes for centuries not because they enjoyed doing things manually :)

    It was the job for the critics to stick fingers in the canvas and tell'em when it ain't good.

    Some traditions are best kept as they are :)

    I don't really see it being useful to draw with your fingers.

    Sorry, meant to write - *Digitized* (some sort of digitized brush/pen)

    Stylus and alike is what it is ;) They are used by artists widely now. But it is not what MS + Adobe are trying to pull there :)

    Whatever happened to those coffee tables, oh yes - Android ate them... :)

    I'm so glad you've decided to take the moral high ground on art.

    Everyone knows you can't beat the precision of a finger when trying to select that pixel on your greasy touch screen. This has to be a joke, or they're simply wasting time for the sake of wasting time over at Adobe. Again W8 brings us the joy of finger painting when trying to be productive. Thank You Microsoft.
  8. Haha, true! Nothing beats the sharp, precise corner of a cursor!

    Adobe, M$, and Apple all know there's a massive untapped sales demographic in the six and under, kindergarten and preschool market. Messy tempera paints are destined to become a thing of the past. Parents will immensely enjoy the easy cleanup after finger painting presented by wiping down a screen with some form of sanitizing wipes.

    You go get 'um, Adobe & M$! The next stop in your expansion should be targeted at chimps, then you can work your way through the rest of the great apes, and onto true monkeys...(y)

    Fischer-Price will be way ahead of the curve on this one. ""Junior Zoo Keeper" will be part of the software bundled with "The Play School 3D Printer" (It will be under the, "Primates with Special Needs" subsection).

    Fecal matter, of course, will be sold separately.. Quick, duck..!:eek:
