Comment Of The Week

Last week’s comments were literally overflowing with excellent tablet recommendations — not just for the ones you think — and in general made a pretty good case for what tablets are good for. Naturally, there were also several comments about how useless tablets are, but these seemed to be in the minority.

Best comment this week goes to Rick, who concisely described exactly why he likes his tablet and what it’s good for. For this comment Do You Own a Tablet? [MakeUseOf Poll] Do You Own a Tablet? [MakeUseOf Poll] Tablets seem to be taking over the world. Where are you in all of this? Do you own a tablet? Did you use to? Do you plan to become a tablet owner soon?

I have a 2nd generation Nexus 7. I bought it because of the combination of great price ($50 off at Staples when I bought it!), good hardware, and pure Android/Google experience. I love it, and find myself using it a lot. As long as I don’t need 3G connectivity, extreme portability, or an actual phone, I find it much more pleasant to use than my phone and it’s great at home when I don’t want to be stuck at my desktop. Mostly use it for leisure activities (reading, music, videos, an occasional round or two of Angry Birds, etc.), but find I can also be quite productive on it for certain tasks like writing posts for my blog, dealing with email and calendar, many things in Evernote, etc. As much as I think I would like to have a Chromebook, I don’t think I would use it nearly as much as this tablet which is more convenient and can do more offline. While neither this tablet or a Chromebook could currently replace my desktop completely, I think a tablet is a very worthwhile device for my needs.

    The Oculus Rift Crystal Cove caught my eye at CES this year. It's impressive to be able to turn your head around and see the complete 360 degree virtual reality. But what's even more amazing, and new to Crystal Cove, is being able to lean forward and see everything below. The end result is a virtual reality experience that feels more complete. The rate at which Oculus Rift is growing is certainly impressive, and to see a unit so refined after just a year is completely mind blowing .

    Didn't like wht ces had to offer this year but in light of that I really liked what Audi has coming out with the integrated charger for the phone.

    This year's CES was utterly unremarkable. Steam machines will be low-spec PCs. Samsung has some oversized tablets to add to their word salad of offerings. We can now have TVs so large that they can have curves and mount tiny mobile device displays to our wrists or heads. Those things are collectively about as exciting as a cup of warm milk and the audiobook recording of an accounting textbook as narrated by Ben Stein.

    Honestly My favorite was the Tesla Model S. It is probably the best looking car and most tech advanced that you can buy right now.

    CES sucked this year. There was nothing interesting to look forward to. CES is dead and not important anymore.

      @Manpreet - Yea, I love they are opening it up to developers like me. The ability to use every sensor could bring in SO many possibilities to the device. Can't wait for it :)
