    Hmm .. I dunno. Sounds more like a place to put a suppository.

    TGIW, Thank God its Wednesday. Why do all the idiots wait until the last minute on the day before a holiday to order all the things they forgot the rest of the week?! :mad:

    There .. I feel better.

    And the more I use my Nexus 10 the more I love it. I was on it about 6 hours straight last night, surfin', you tubin', and still had about 50% battery left. And Bohemian Rhapsody sounded great.

    Not bad! :)

    I started a new job (at the same company) a couple of weeks ago and things are all quiet at the moment... waiting for a new system to be implemented, at which point, things will go mad for a couple of weeks!

    How's about you?

    I've boycotted Engadget ever since they had that sorry excuse of an article comparing camera phones. They made the best camera phone at the time (Nokia N8) take the worse pictures. It wasn't even close how bad the N8 pictures were compared to the iP4, SGS 1 and others.

    I checked the site and it seems faster than the old one.

    I'm not a fan of typing on any screen. That is why I got the Transformer with a keyboard dock. The keyboard is only 90% of the size of a regular one. It took me about a month to get used to the size. I can type on the keyboard dock about 90% the speed of a full size keyboard.

    I tried the Windows Surface tablets. I really like the type cover on those. It feels just like a real keyboard. The only thing is you cannot turn off the touch pad like you can on the Transformer. While I was typing on the Surface type cover, I kept hitting the touch pad causing the cursor to jump to a new location. Very annoying.

    For me is surf, emails, social networks, and Netflix. I hardly play games on it or on my phone. I manage my music on my PC and copy it to my phone. I also like the fact that can hook my tablet up to my TV and watch Netflix on a larger screen. I also use my tablet as a poker timer for my home games. I hook it up to the TV for this as well.

    How about adding "TABLET NIRVANA" to the poll?

    OK, I'm glad that there are other people that use the tablet like me. Over the past few days I too have been convincing myself to get a new tablet too. Initially my knee-jerk reaction was the Nexus 10. Done. But then I started reading about the Kindle Fire HD and call me crazy, but I'm beginning to think that this is the best tablet out there for me.

    - The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 undercuts the Nexus 10. The 32GB KFHD is cheaper than the 16GB Nexus 10.

    - The KFHD does everything I do on my tablet.

    - You can't beat the KFHD in terms of content. You have more access to Amazon content on the Kindle- namely the videos and magazines.

    - The focus of the Kindle Fire HD is so narrow that it is future proofed in a funny way. When the next great tablet comes out with Android 5.0, it will make other tablets look outdated. With a KFHD- google now, lock screen widgets, dont matter. As long as the tablet can surf the web, watch video, and read books/magazines, it's good. Even if the next gen KFHD allows Google Play and widgets- big deal, I have it on my phone and play with those apps.

    - There is less of an overlap with my phone- this is a problem I noticed with my iPhone/iPad combo and my Samsung GS3/GT10.1 combo now. The KFHD will be the go to device for content consumption. It won't be a wi-fi only S3 with a bigger screen and all the same apps on it.

    - Locked down? Yes. But you can sideload apps and root it

    Now the problem is that I got an e-mail today saying one of my credit cards has $345 that I can use at Amazon for anything... :D

    It sounds like that could be the tab for you. Just don't go and buy the.nexus 10 just because everyone.says its the best if the kindle is more suited to your.needs then that is the tab for you.

    I woke up this morning really ill with the flu and am currently at work wondering why did i bother go in .Lucky its not anything were u have to work hard. Hopefully I'm better by the weekend as i cant afford to miss a paycheck.

    Hopefully my boss notices I'm sick and tells me to go home with pay but hes not in yet. I don't think it will happen though
