Hello! Iam writing this post on an ASUS Transformer Prime. I am using a keyboard with it. The combination of the two cost me fairly dearly, for what is basically some plastic chiclets and a piece of glass. Sure, it's more than that, but is it? ICS DOESN'T ALLOW APPS TO SEE/WRITE/READ TO/FROM EXTERNAL STORAGE? Why isn't this one of the biggest issues in the Android community? Why all the whimpering, hopeful, nonsensically polite, expressed hopes that Google will ALLOW access to external storage? And since the fix is apparently a one line command statement to Android's "registry", WHY AREN'T MANUFACTURER'S ENABLING ACCESS? Whose money is being spent here anyway? Mine, Yours. Ours. That's who. I would not have purchased an Android tablet, had I known. If I buy a memory slot and fill it, I EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO USE IT. Not the crippled, pathetic use that is current the "State of the Art" (Ah HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - state of the art!), but proper use of the physical resource. So I didn't know, that's my excuse. What's yours? More importantly, what are you going to do about it? I am going to ask ASUS to give me my money back, which of course, they won't do. I am then going to see about having one of my attorney clients or masters class members to write up a nice letter of protest. Something, ANYTHING. To show that I don't have to take this kind of corralling into using someone's cloud nonsense, if I don't want to. That's where I am going to start. Where are you going to start?
