You may recall the kerfuffle when Oprah Winfrey tweeted that the Surface RT was one of her "favorite things"...from an iPad. Pretty embarrassing (and I hope Microsoft got its promotional dollars back).

So it was with some trepidation that I decided to write this post using the iOS Squarespace app. Yes, the creation of this blog has been 100% Windows so far, but that doesn't mean I won't need to write something on the run in the future.

And most importantly, we're fairly OS agnostic here. We'll use anything so long as it gets the job done. We fully intend to do head to head comparisons between the Surface Pro, iPad, Nexus 7 and any other device that might fit in a professional or hobbyist artist's toolkit.

And to prove it, here's an oldie but goodie speed painting video from iPad artist David Jon Kassan, who works miracles with his finger tips. We're not worthy.
