Tableteers and UMPeers include Gearheads


Hemmings eWeekly publishes a list of vehicle events coming up this summer.

Many of us who enjoy working with Tablet PCs and Ultra Mobile PCs also enjoy working on cars, go-karts, motorcycles, RVs, tractors and other vehicles. We also enjoy an occasional race or two.

It’s a special thrill to share events, stories, and wrenches with sons, daughters, and grandchildren the way my cousins, parents and their siblings have shared them with me.

Look for exhibitors as well as guests who use mobile PCs. Our numbers are increasing! Please say hello when you spot one of us.
