I am toying with the idea of eliminating Windows and Microsoft from my daily life. I think t can do it too.
I have the new Android tablet and have been not using my laptop much at all since I got it.
It’s really no big deal, Mac users are around that probably seldom or never use Microsoft or Windows.
Microsoft has gotten a lot of money from me over the years. I have registered versions of Windows 3.1, ’98, 2000, XP, ME, and Vista. Not to mention the versions of Microsoft office. They keep making new versions, not compatible with the previous versions. Which sucks for the user, but made Bill Gates the richest dude o the planet.
The only problem is downloading the pics off my camera, which I’m working around.
Anyway, I’m running late today and gotta git goin’!
I ended up going for the Nexus 7 with the Sharkk keyboard. I figured there’s nothing yet to replace my laptop, but I can replace my Kindle and use my laptop less. I ordered them on Amazon and should get them next week.
yes, it’s the same picture again.
The first tropical storm has formed, Andrea. Here we go. Andrea came from the system that gave us that rain last week.
I guess I’ll be mowing the yard this weekend., but the grass is gone, all that’s left are the weeds. Starting over….
Have a good Thursday!
Posting in the evenings didn’t work too well for me yesterday, we started watching a ‘Arry Podder’ movie and I never made it to the computer at all.
Speaking of new computers, I’ve been saying I needed one. I’ve been thinking I could replace my laptop with a tablet. Above is a Nexus 7 and a bluetooth keyboard built for it. For under $325, it would do everything I need a computer for, except for when I want to take pictures off my camera. There’s no card reader. Plus, at 7 inches, this thing is tiny. I could type on it, I’m sure better than the durn virtual keyboard that covers half the screen. There’s lots of videos about it here on YouTube.
Alternatively, I’m thinking about an ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. At more than double the cost.
But it has a SD Card Reader, bigger display and keyboard, quad processor and is more like a laptop. What I don’t like about the Transformer Pad is the touchpad on the keyboard. Why do I need a touchpad if I have a touch screen? I always disable the touchpad on my laptops because I’ll be typing, accidentally touch the touchpad and move the cursor, then I’m suddenly typing somewhere else and I have a mess to fix. I never liked touchpads.
Neither has a hard drive, they have Solid State Drives of 16, 32 0r 64 Gigabytes, so all my files would be stored on Dropbox and Skydrive.
So that’s where I’m at today. What do you think? Do you have one of these tablets?
Kinda crabby this morning. I think Andriod 2 is by far superior to 4 and I upgraded and want to go back.
Heres a picture of my office. New computer. My last job I was there 14 years and I never got a computer. I had to buy my own or share one with the 20 announcers. I was eager to get started just to find out if I could handle it, and now I know I can.
So now I’m ready for the weekend.
I need to go to bed earlier. The alarm was cruel this morning.
