Special thanks to Katreece for a Facebook comment that inspired this comic.

My new tablet is a Samsung Ativ 500t. It's running Windows 8 (I feel dirty!) and features Samsung's S-Pen (and a Wacom digitizer). I plan to use this and Sketchbook Pro to draw the comic strip for the immediate future.

Of course, as soon as the new tablet arrives, I find out that Sam really DOES prefer the iPad mini -- meaning I could have swapped the mini out with the regular iPad and postponed the Samsun purchase another month or so (in anticipation of a Note 12.2 or the Ativ Q.)

Let this be a lesson, folks: when you don't talk about every little thing with your spouse, you'll wind up with too many tablets.

... although I'm not sure how that's a BAD thing ...
