Angry birds was initially popular because it was one of the first games that used an actually feasible physics engine where you can predict what effect will happen depending on where you hit. Not a random fall or whatever. Bad Piggies is a nice game, but not much of my thing.

Afternoon!!

I've got an Acer A500... one of the main reasons I got it was that it has full size native USB, which is a bit of a bonus. Got it, thinking I'd use it a hell of a lot on Android Forums, but have to be honest, do most things from the laptop!

Dread - glad you like Plague Inc... haven't been able to get Mrs D-U-R-X off it since yesterday... guess it means that I've been able to be on here all weekend though!!

I've got some of the usual games - angry birds, etc. Have also got (but not played as much as I thought I would) GTA. Guess I need to take a bit of time to have a proper go at gaming, as it is part of the reason I got a tablet in the first place!

I also use it to watch Breaking Bad (straight off a USB stick) and have been finding that it's pretty good to watch movies on too (watched one on the coach to London and it certainly helped the time pass)

I have a T101 and a B&N Nook Color. The Nook was rooted and i tried doing a bunch of tablety things on it, but it just didn't have the ooomph to run a lot of apps, plus the tweaks needed to get it to work in the market (that's what they called the play store back in the good old days ) were a bit of a kludge. So I returned it to B&N stock and use it for what it was intended for ... reading. It is still my daily reader.

The Asus Transformer I use more or less for documentation at work. I can carry around a lot of network settings, user logins, ip addresses etc. so i have that information at my fingertips ... literally. I will play the occasional game and check email ... oh yes, i have several of my favorite Star Trek TOS episodes on it too. Spock keeps me company after hours at work.

Good to see your tablets are being used for what they are intended for star trek

Got shadowgun (and Samurai II: Vengeance) in one of the last sales (haven't really played it on my tablet, more on my phone)!

One that I like to mess with on my tablet is Reactable - a music production sort of app that I thought was well worth the money, as it's a good way to waste time

Games are just so much better on tabs than phones due to the big screen

I've wish I had the time to play with reactable. It looks like fun. I must settle for Adobe Photoshop Touch and AutoDesk Sketchbook Pro. Work work work.

It will not be long before I'm in bed either... I'm in work early tomorrow, but will keep popping in here to see what's going on!

Hope some others suggest a few names for this place... I agree that, as this is aimed at tablets, we should try something other than "watering hole"

Hope some others suggest a few names for this place... I agree that, as this is aimed at tablets, we should try something other than "watering hole"
Yeh, I usually find that water and tablets doesn't mix too well. It tends to void the warranties, and some of the cheapo ones can be temperamental enough as they are,

As for a thread name, I'm not sold on the tavern idea only because it would leave out our younger members. I'm sure their parents don't what their kids hanging out in a "tavern".

As a child of the 60's (okay, look at the username and figure it out) I could see "Tabletstock".

I picked up a 32 gigabyte Nexus 10 from someone on Craigslist. Gave him my Transformer Prime. Loving the N10. Got it rooted for now.

Just throwing a couple of ideas out...

Quote:
Tablet Den
Tablet Haunt
Tablet Resort
Tablet Stomping Ground
Tablet Cubbyhole
Tablet Retreat
The Tablitat (based on Tablet Habitat)
Tablet Parlour
Tablet Hideaway
Tablet Hangout
I won't be offended if none of them make it (I actually cringed when writing some of the list), but at least there are a few suggestions

Can always make a poll (rather than try and keep a running list of votes) and leave it open for a while, to see what the general consensus is

"Tablet Parlour" sounds a little too NSFW.

Luna, agree with you on the NColor. I bought mine with a GC with the explicit intention of it being my hacking device. Never even signed into a B&N account, rooted it immediately. But, like you said, even with CM7, it was just too underpowered (never tried OCing it though). My Flyer, even with an ancient processor actually runs quite well.
