We're painting a bedroom this weekend.

My hubbies b-day is coming up shortly so I'll be cyber shopping for a tablet for him. Any suggestions? It needs to be bigger than a 7" screen I think.

We picked up our completed taxes last night. We earned the same amount of money, but our return is less than half of last years (basically we're taxed about 2k more). I've not scoured the documents yet to see what caused the hit.

I'll probably have the Academy Awards on the TV Sunday evening, though I generally pay little attention to award shows. I still need to see Argo.

I'm sick. It's some sort of ebola-like lung flem filled yellow spewing death cold, and I wish very much to not be in existance at the moment. Since I'm loopy on cold medicine at the moment, thats seems like a reasonable and rational time to start my taxes.

Tablet, don't get a kindle tablet, they're cut down in features. You want one of the samsung tablets. Check with your cell phone provider, they may have the ability for you to add a tablet if you buy it from them to your data plan and not cost you much more at all. That makes the tablet much more useful if you travel with it alot. if you will just use it in a fixed location over wifi, don't worry about that. Samsung Galexy S10 or something along those lines. Ipads are evil, avoid.

Need to shovel snow when I get home. Not much in the way of weekend plans yet. Flea and I were going to do a dinner & a movie last weekend which never materialized so perhaps we'll try again.

If your husband has a smart phone, get him a tablet using the same platform (iOS, Android, Win8) so he can share his applications across both devices. No sense in repurchasing everything.

Speaking of, I've been promising to wipe Flea's tablet and install Jellybean on there for a dog's age. Maybe I'll actually get that done this weekend.

That's pretty much doomed to fail, isn't it?



And I'll be wasting my time with AC3 and possibly some other games in between.

Gonna be a slow day for me as well. Will pass any free time reading games journalism drama.

Supposed to go to a friend's housewarming party tomorrow, but I have something similar to Kao's symptoms, so we'll see. Also, one of my other friends will likely be bringing his girlfriend who he just got back together with after she cheated on him, so that's going to be nice and awkward. Dunno what to do about it.

The Kindle Fire was topping my list. We don't have cell phones.

How about the Chromebook? Seems it's more of a laptop in functionality but a tablet in size and portability...and it's a Samsung.

Shopping lists are made for the week, I'll need to hit the stores tomorrow at latest as some of my coupons expire Saturday. Mom is coming down for one day, and I'd like to get to the driving range with my brother-in-law. That last one is really iffy though, weather is nasty and he's got a 10 day old baby at home that needs changing and feeding.

Is there one around you? My wife actually wanted one for the longest time, but there wasn't one within 100 miles of us. In the end she just went with a cheap conventional laptop, it was only $50 more and she got something with an actual hard drive that she could load software onto.

Unless he's in love with iOS, then pay way too much for an iPad, I guess. Although were that the case, we assume you'd have just bought one by now.

I guess I don't really understand the bigger than 7" part then? Nexa has a 7 inch tablet, and I can't imagine any of those things being an issue. Now if he reads comics/graphic novels then the jump from 7 to 10 inch is a huge deal making something that's barely tolerable on a 7 inch tab a better experience than reading paper on the 10 inch.

My mother got really sick a few weeks ago; congestive heart failure, blood clots, fluid in the lungs, all that good stuff. Spent ten days sedated and on a ventilator. As soon as she got out of the ICU, spent one day in a recovery bed then went right to a rehab center...for all of a week. We need to switch rooms in the house, since she can't handle stairs daily anymore, but it was supposed to be two weeks from now, not...tomorrow. So we're currently in the process of turning the whole house inside-out. Which includes emptying the master bedroom, which is full of forty years' worth of two hoarders' junk, one of whom (my father) hasn't even been alive for six years. Our driveway is currently lined with Bagsters, frozen into the mud.

The 7 inch is just too hard to see.

I have a 7 inch screen on my Nook. It's ok for reading because I can set the font to super big, but webbing is hard. If you pinch the page big you can't find stuff on it. I have to wear my readers to do anything on my nook except reading. One of life's goals at our age is to find ways to avoid having to put on the reading glasses. Also my husband has big fingers - seriously big. That's why I kinda liked the chrome book as it has a more standardized keyboard.

I have a 10" tablet and enjoy it for media consumption but I don't travel with it unless it's to a hotel room or something. It doesn't go "on the road" with me regularly.

I do appreciate the extra real estate for web browsing, watching movies and playing games.

You certainly don't want to go a hundred bucks under $300 for a 10.1" tablet unless you want something that boots in Chinese and has a body made of mud and sticks. If the $399 tag on the Nexus is a bit too steep (although it is the better tablet), I'd go with the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

New (16GB) - $350
Refurb (16GB) - $265

Samsung's a solid brand in the Android device market and their Galaxy phones are the closest thing the iPhone has to competition. There's also the Asus transformer but it's the same price, plus the cost of the keypad. If you don't want the keypad, you're paying extra for the features/internal hardware you'll never use.

One benefit of the Galaxy Tab over the Nexus is that the Tab has an SD slot so you can expand the storage beyond the 16GB. Nexus lacks this feature. It's a way to keep the initial cost down (since another 16GB in base storage runs about $100) and you always seem to wind up using however much room you have.

I've had the Galaxy S Advance (the budget Galaxy phone, basically) for half a year now and so far it's proven to be a good phone for what I use it for, which is basically texting, calling, browsing the internet when I'm bored as **** and as a cheap *** instagram machine.

The standard 10" tablet is more than I was looking for I think. I was kind of narrowing it down between the kindle fire+ and the nook HD+ (both with 8.9"screens) as they were in the range of money that I had set aside for his b-day. I like my Nook. Mines been a solid devise. The Kindle was winning the contest though because the Nook still is not offering up the HBO viewing app and will never be allowed to stream Amazon stuff.

He just got a ipad for work - this week. Maybe I should wait and see if he 'loves' it to death and/or how often it comes home with him, and just get him a tool for his b-day.

They make the Nexus and google stick a "google" sticker on it. Not a secret. The lack of an SD card port is annoying, but it seems unlikely that it's omitted for the $.73 cost savings. More likely it's a marketing decision. Probably a good one. After all Apple has made billions selling suckers "upgrades" of dirt cheap ram at 500% markup.

Yeah, Google's official explanation for the lack of an SD slot was "It's too confusing" Smiley: dubious

Nexus says right on their site that they're partnered with Samsung. I was just telling Elinda since she doesn't seem to have a point of reference for picking between a Samsung, an Asus, a Pandigital or a Coby.

Yeah, thats actually the case, and I'll be damned if I know why. Same thing goes with lack of sleep too. Also, my skills at playing solitaire and other windows computer games not involving fast motions go up exponentially too. It's wierd.

Nexus 10 tablet is also a good choice, the samsung ones will be cheaper. you might find a deal with your local cell provider.

Sorry to hear about your mom Deb. Hope you can get all that straightened out without too much agony.

I'll be home with just my son. The husband improved by leaps and bounds and decided to take off for NC this weekend. I was supposed to go with him, but I couldn't get the time off from work. He promised to drive slow and stop often to get out and move around some. But I'm still a bit worried. Also, he got the green light to officially go back to work next week.

Tomorrow I'm going to the American Craft Council's annual show with my middle child, so we can woo and ah over the handcrafted jewelry, woodwork and Art glass. Neither of us can afford to spend money there, but hope to get inspired by what we wee and maybe talk to a few jewelers about business. Then it's back home to were I'll be babysitting my grandson, while his sister goes with mom and bf to a Steam Punk Ball.

Sunday will be either spending the day recovering from all the walking, or going to help make flowers out of plastic bottles for the Maryland Faerie Festival.

Delighting in the stressful organisation of planning for imminent wedding, redundancy & unexpected retirement.

My mom's fine. Actually, better than before - she's younger and in better shape than some of the orderlies at the rehab/nursing facility! After two straight nights of trying to get things cleaned up and moved around, the house is in worse shape than before and mom called to leave a message before I even woke up, saying she's ready and waiting to come home. Sigh...

And after all that, she informs me that she's not staying home for now...this was just a day visit. She'll be at the rehab center for another week or so. Smiley: rolleyes

I just got back in last night from a week of business travel. Mainly I'll be catching up on homework as soon as I quit procrastinating by browsing the Asylum and Fark. On a good note, I got my annual review and received a promotion, a raise, and a bonus, so that's pretty cool.

I've been looking at the Galaxy as well, I almost pulled the trigger last week but I was waiting to get my tax returns first. Speaking of, I have to scheduled my appt and gather my **** for it. Pretty much counting on getting more back than last year due to my school expenses, selling my condo for a loss, energy improvements, etc. At least I'm hoping.

As far as tablets are concerned... I've really enjoyed my Windows Surface Pro. Have you considered those?

We always knew it would end up a bleak life of squatting in a sublet council flat, and burgeoning Cricket Hooliganism for you.

We're painting a bedroom this weekend.
We got the room prepped and the ceiling painted. But then, alas, the white fluffy stuff called my love to away leaving me stranded home alone for yet another weekend. He coerced a promise from me that i wouldn't start on the walls. Smiley: glare

We got a ton of snow...again.

My hubbies b-day is coming up shortly so I'll be cyber shopping for a tablet for him. Any suggestions? It needs to be bigger than a 7" screen I think.
No tablet. He's getting a hatchet.

I'll probably have the Academy Awards on the TV Sunday evening, though I generally pay little attention to award shows. I still need to see Argo.
I watched Argo Fri. night. It was pretty good. I liked seeing the 70/80 styles - though I think they were toned down some from reality. The acting at all levels was superb. I watched most of the Academy Awards last night - it was actually pretty good too. Seth did good job. Congrats to Ben and crew.
