Tablets, Ink, and Irony

Friday, June 11, 2004

There is a company selling automation solutions to the medical industry utilizing the Tablet PC (via MedicalTabletPC.com). I imagine they are using the INK API, even though the name of the company is NoInk Communications. I can picture the help wanted ads now:

“Ink Developer Needed For NoInk Software”

In print, you might be able to noodle it out. Recruiters would need to be more careful in face to face conversation:

“I see you’ve completed a commercial application with Ink”

“Yes, I love developing for Tablet PCs with Ink. I think in Ink.”

“Would you be interested in a challenging project with NoInk?”

“No”

Though really, it’s not such a bad name. I wouldn't put it on this 2002 list of the 50 worst company names, which included Molex Inc, and McData Corp.
