Is it the stylus or the screen?

I got myself a Lenovo tablet on super sale for Christmas. I'm interested in using it to read and annotate pdf files (mainly journal articles). The pdf reader app I'm using has the ability for freehand writing, and I'd like to try that out for margin notes (some of the papers are technical with lots of symbols, so writing is easier than typing). I bought a stylus that had pretty good reviews on Amazon, but I have to push down to make it work which is ok for highlighting, but tiring for writing. Is this a limitation of this tablet's screen? Or is there a stylus that is easier to use? [more inside]

Two screenfulls of a web page, one monitor?

Is there any way to make a web browser use two windows to show the first and second window-fulls of a single web page? This would be the equivalent of the "two up" view found in some PDF viewers. On the left, your normal view of a web page. On the right, the next part of that same page -- the thing you would see if you hit "page down" in the first window. [more inside]

How to clean a TV screen?

I need a cleaning towel for my large screen DLP TV. The manual says to use a cotton towel, but I find that solution to be less than perfect, a lot less than perfect. I've considered a microfiber cloth, but I don't have any experience with them, and the ones that get good reviews (from Amazon) are too small for the task I need them for. A cleaning solution is something I've considered, and plenty of them are labeled "safe for TV screen", but words are cheap and my TV isn't. Basically, I'm hopelessly lost, and would appreciate some suggestions on a TV screen cleaning kit with a proven history of reliability and customer satisfaction. Thank you.

Screen protector for new ipad?

I heard the glass on the new ipad is Gorilla Glass and does not need a screen protector. Is that true? I will be using a stylus, so I want to get a screen protector if I need one right away. If you are using a screen protector, which one are you using? Thanks!

Where can I get screen printed posters made?

I've got some designs I want printed. Small run, around 25 pieces. I've been trying to get something set up with Holy Mountain, Shout Out Loud, etc. but it's been quite difficult getting a response. Any other suggestions I should check out? Both companies I listed use French paper, which is what I'd like to use.

Thinkpad X200 Max Screen Resolution

At work I use a Dell Latitude 5400 on XP Pro. In it's dock - which has twin DVI outputs - it can output to a 32" and a 24" monitor at a resolution of 1920x1200 on each. I want to switch out the Dell with a Thinkpad x200 on Win7. It has a VGA output, and if I buy the dock, it too has a single VGA output. How do I determine the maximum resolution I will be able to achieve from the Thinkpad (understanding that dual monitors would not be possible), and will buying the dock enable me to achieve a larger resolution?

Laptop got wet. Now the screen is really bright.

About a month ago, I spilled some water on my laptop. So I let everything dry out. It works again, but now the screen is very bright, as if the contrast is turned way up. After searching the internet, I learned that the problem could be a damaged inverter so I ordered and installed a new one. But no dice. The screen is still really bright. Any ideas of what might be the problem? [more inside]

Anti-glare film for Macbook Pro. Need Suggestions!

What is the best anti-glare (matte) film for my unibody MacBook Pro? I hate the glossy screen, but it was the only option available when I was given the laptop. For a while I had an anti-glare film on it, but it got dirty and seemed like it was making the screen too fuzzy, so it was removed. I'm considering the Green Onions AG2, the Moshi iVisor, the Power Support, or the RadTech Clear Cal. They all seem to get fairly mediocre reviews. Today I came across the 3M Privacy Filter, which apparently has a matte side, and better reviews, but the privacy filter would actually be a little annoying for my use. Suggestions? Other ideas?

Kindle 3 faulty screens

I am sending back my 5th defective Kindle 3 because of screen faults--lines, not fully loading, not displaying properly. Amazon never says anything about why, but apologize for my trouble and agree to ship a replacement. But the damn things only last a month sometimes before the same problem happens. It's a nuisance not to have it work, especially when I'm off the grid on a trip or a vacation, and tedious to have to set up and transfer books and periodicals from old to new. Is there an alternative? Do others have similar problems? The last CR I talked to suggested I buy a thick leather cover (which the sell for $40) but declined to say the lack of a cover was the cause of the problem. Has anyone used a cover? Is it necessary? Is so why doesn't Amazon provide a cover. It would be cheaper than sending so many replacements.
