How things are going with my new tablet.

I'm writing this post from my new tablet. So far I'm enjoying it quite a lot, even though it's taking some getting used to. Not all of the buttons are where they were before, so typing can sometimes be a bit of a pain, but I must say that it's a lot more comfortable blogging from my bed than it used to be.

Only thing that's getting to me a this stage is moving the cursor to where I want it to fix a mistake. Still, I'll probably master it soon enough.

No... you know what? Blog writing is better done on my laptop. But it's good to know that I'll soon be able to do a post from anywhere if I needed to.

But yeah, it's definitely a lot more fun to use a laptop for certain things.

Writing something, for one. But it's amazing to be chatting or reading blogs on something that weighs almost nothing. So that's definitely what I'll be using my tablet for. And business. Although I've so far been too lazy to try and configure my business e-mail account to the tablet. But it will happen.

In the mean-time, I've also discovered a nifty little app where I can remotely log into my laptop using my tablet, so that has me pretty excited. Because then I don't have to worry about not taking edits with me, since I can just access them via the internet. ^_^

But yeah, I'm still just turning the tablet into my home away from laptop home, so do you have any suggestions for some more interesting apps?

Have a great weekend, all! X

I've long held the view that tablets are not adequate substitutes for computers, but it's always nice to have a shiny new electronic toy!

I agree with you there. There are some things a tablet just can't do. BUT. They're veeeeery convenient. :-D

I think you're having fun exploring your tablet. I'm still figuring out all the things I can do with my Kindle Fire.

I have a Kindle fire and I enjoy it, but I tend to get too annoyed with typing on a touch screen. I'm a fast typer and I'd rather tap away on a keyboard. But for lounging in bed reading blogs? Tablets rock!

Good for you! I tend to have a very hard time with new things. Sounds like your tablet is a great addition!
Have a great weekend!
Blessings, Joanne

Looking forward to getting a tablet - though aware of its limitations in terms of writing. Also aware of my own cringingly 'non-cool-speak'. Daughter winced when I said I wanted an 'Apple tablet'.
"Do you mean an iPad?" she said.
