If you’ve known me for more than 5 minutes, you know how fickle my position can be on almost any subject. One minute I’m for, the next I’m vehemently against. I think this trait is an evolutionary advantage, a sort of way for me to see the other side of an argument. At least that’s how I justify my wishwashiness. My wife and I have even come up with a term for me and my behaviour: 180 Man.
Why am I writing this, you ask? Well, after all my earlier rants about how great the Intuos is for drawing and workflow, I’ve been drooling lakes over Wacom’s new Cintiq Companion line of drawing tablets. Those things looked sexy, actually so much so that I was thinking of selling my Intuos just so that I could get my cold slender hands on one of those Sirens. So I heeded that Siren call today and took a walk at lunchtime to a store in Montreal while I’m down here to try it out. And my review? I was so dissapointed with it, that I felt horribly ashamed I ever questioned my love for the Intuos.
I don’t really know why I was expecting so much, but I did and came away a little sad but also relieved that I didn’t need to spend any more money on another piece of kit. I’m so sorry I ever doubted you, Intuos. I’ll try not to be so fickle next time.
