So after some considerable thought I’m considering getting a tablet…yes I know I’ve mocked the iPad for a while on this blog. Yet now that there is starting to be some competition in the market and the addition of cameras I’ve readjusting my initial impression of the devices as it might solve one particular issue I’ve had for a while now. I don’t own anything that allows me to easily work on Word files just about anywhere. Yes I do have a laptop, but the thing is heavy so I dislike taking it along except to places where I know I will need it and my iPod Touch is good for a quick email, but sucks for writing a chapter in a book. Yet with the market changes so fast right now I think I’m going to sit on the sidelines for a while and wait for the prices to drop, so this item is going on a six month wait list. At that point I’ll look again at the market and decide if this ‘want’ is just tech lust or something I could actually use.
Now onto this week’s links:
