Patrick, I just bought a Nexus tablet. I must say, Mobile internet (as in Web 1.0 begat Web 2.0 begat Mobile) is certainly a shock to the system -- as in, there's an app for that, and we'll do what we please once we're on your system. I still can't bring myself to get a Google account to download apps from the Google play store. The screen size is sufficient on the Nexus 7 (though I'll probably go blind) and sufficient for web 2.0 browsing...
Edit: Go blind reading Pat net as I'm at the age where I have to look underneath my glasses to look at smaller print. Edit in response to patrick below :-)
grooveshark.com dude, free and no commercial BS. I know that you have to pay for it on phones, but it is free if you access from a PC. Not sure about the iPad, but it works fine on my Surface. Check it out!
Apple is an over priced heap of junk, that no one has never owned.
That's why I've never embraced them.
The whole being tethered to the iTunes thing, was a turn off to me since iPad 1.0. Sure there's hoakey work arounds, but that shouldn't have to be.
I still can't bring myself to get a Google account to download apps from the Google play store.
That part was a turn off for me as well, though I managed.
I now have a Google Mail account that I've nonly logged into once after I set my Droid up. That was enough what I saw was horrifying, and I haven't logged in since.
The thing that bothers me most is how Google hijacked my contacts, on and put them in my Google mail profile in the Cloud. I certainly didn't want that to happen, and didn't have the option to not allow it.
I'm so over the Cloud, I wish a digital cold front would move in make them all go away.
My next phone will be Jitter Bug plane Jane phone. And I'll be sure to delete everything in my Google account profile.
