Tablet PC Pioneer Wins Turing Award


Charles P. Thacker, veteran hardware developer at the Xerox Corp.'s PARC and Microsoft, picks up the prestigious $250,000 prize.

But Thacker always seemed to be ahead of his time, producing early-stage innovations, only to watch his contributions be embodied in later successful products. The tablet PC that he developed for Microsoft is a case in point. It debuted in 2001 and logged sluggish sales, but many of its concepts have been taking off lately. Apple's iPad tablet, due to ship in a few days, may be the latest example.   (Source: -->W. David Gardner,
