If the trade-offs here feel similar to the trade-offs between relational databases and no-sql databases, it's because they are. At the end of the day, all of these technologies are built on top of the same well studied data structures and the innovation is happening by applying them to new industries.
Reflecting drug use patterns and criminal justice policies throughout the 1990s and 2000s, prisons hold a disproportionate number of society’s drug abusers. Approximately 50% of state prisoners meet the criteria for a diagnosis of drug abuse or dependence, but only 10% receive medically based drug treatment.
In older versions of the Note, you could tap the 4 corners of the screen with the pen, one at a time, to let it auto-calibrate. I don't know for certain that it does anything, but it seems to have helped considerably for me. When I write with the S Pen, I tend to hold it at an angle, like I would a pencil. This resulted in the on-screen cursor being about 1/16" to the left of the actual pen tip, and slightly below. I did the 4-point touches and it seems to have resolved itself - my writing goes where the pen tip actually touches, and the cursor actually shows under the tip of the pen.
