I have chemo-induced menopause and continued hot flashes from the drug I am advised to take for 5 years.... I bought the Chillow in May. All I can say is that I LOVE MY CHILLOW. I filled it once -- I was concerned about not getting the air pocket out (after reading other reviews) -- but it was simple to follow directions. All I need to do is lay it flat to reset the coolness... and it is simply lovely. I use it for my head and upper back.
I bought the Wacom Bamboo tablet and pen to use together with this and it made a big difference. The Autosketch software was easy as can be to install (at least on WIN) and to use (I chose NOT to "access TIFF, PSD, PNG" etc. because that just makes Autosketch the default to open pictures in those formats. You can change it back if you make a mistake, but I'd rather use other programs to open my files and import pictures into Autosketch. Just fyi.).
Everything I wanted to import did so smoothly. The tools (pen, brush, color palette etc.) worked fine and were fun to use. It was easy to import into Photoshop and Illustrator (my two primary end-sources). Tis software has already heled with mock ups, added details and color changes (it even lets you use layers) that are harder and more time-consuming in other programs.
Getting a pen tool may not be necessary, but it really made drawing feel natural and adding printing, signatures, calligraphy etc. was a breeze. I just didn't find my mouse responsive enough to use for drawing.
I definitely enjoyed using Autosketch and can see a lot of future uses for it
