Question to SoftStep owners

Postby AndrewCalvo » Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:59 pm


We're doing a quick, informal survey here, would you share what hardware and/or software you are currently using with SoftStep?

Also, let us know your favorite blogs and print publications where you find about new gear and reviews.

Thanks for your time-
