Technology Thread
So, I consider myself a nerd but unfortunately, I am not as well versed in the nerd realm as I should like. So, this thread is intended to be open for people to discuss some of the technology they have and/or want. The idea is that someone can ask questions about tablets, phones, computers, software, apps, etc, so that they can make a better decision about what to buy. The forum may not be full of tech experts, but there are several people here whom I trust and would gladly take advice from.

I'll start off. Anyone got a Nexus7 or Nexus10 tablet? I have been thinking about buying one for home use (whenever we get internet there). I had a Samsung Note phone but ditched it when my wife and I switched from AT&T to Verizon (we both opted for the Galaxy SIII, which we both love), and I loved having a big screen on a small device that didn't use as much power, take up as much space, or take as long to switch on as a computer does. At home, my main use of the tablet would be reading books off of e-reader apps, posting here, facebook, and some casual gaming mixed in with some functional apps. But the Nexus tablets (and the Nexus4 phone) are not really on display anywhere (except some GameStop stores), so I have not gotten a chance to really play with one. And while I know a few people with tablets, they are almost exclusively iPads, and I just got rid of my iPhone a little less than a year ago and would rather not go back to Apple.

So, is the Nexus7 good enough, or would I need to maybe go with the Nexus10 (double the price basically)?

Anyone got any other tablets? Samsung has some galaxy tabs that I don't know much about, but I don't think they come out of the box with Jelly Bean. I am not a big fan of the Kindle Fire (not so great reviews as I recall), but I have not played much with it either.

I have a huawei media pad. Very similar to the nexus 7 but a touch cheaper and lesser powered. I would have bought the nexus instead if they were selling a 3g version at the time. A 7" is small enough to carry around and use as your main phone if you don't mind a small man bag (it won't fit on your belt). I don't know anyone who regularly carries a 10" around. 10" is for home use.

I bought a Nexus and when I got it home and opened it, it didn't even work. It would power on and stay on a bright white screen. I returned it, so I'm not sure if a working one is good or not. I do agree that a 7 inch is plenty big enough without being awkwardly large. Ohh, Google Glass...is that out yet? I saw a sneak peak of it, and can't wait to get it! Back on topic-I now have a Galaxy Tab and it sucks too. It freezes, returns to the home screen on its own and powers off randomly. I've used quite a few different types of tablets and haven't found one that was good. They are all glitchy and the price doesn't necessarily reflect the quality. Good luck.

RE: Technology Thread
Decided to buy a Nexus7 after saving up for a bit. Ordered it today and hope to receive it before Saturday! I have a buddy who has one and loves it, so that kind of pushed me over the edge to go for it.

If anyone is interested, I can give some feedback on what I think about it. In the event that anyone else is thinking of looking at a tab.

I'm negotiating a consulting contract with CoolerMaster (PC component maker) right now. Shall be interesting. Smile

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

What kind of contract? Design hardware? Software? Testing? Reviewing? Know anything about the Nexus7?
