Is this progress?

The home improvements have overrun. The shack is still full of the contents of two other rooms. I won't regain access to the PC and radios until early next week. I am typing this slowly and with considerable difficulty on the touch screen of my Android tablet.
Is this progress? Give me a computer with a proper keyboard any time.

In today’s society, they trim people to be brave consumers. That is what a tablet in my opinion is about, consuming. Not working. That, and being a prestige object.

Only my Opinion though.

Every 24 hours a new electronic gizmo is marketed. The tablet is one of them, in my opinion. It and the latest version(s) of the i-phone or whatever.

You do not need to read or write when using a tablet. It's all about the game.....or fun. My little daughter of 2,5 years old now does exactly know how the tablet works. But it's another story with a PC. 73, Bas

Try out Swype, it may make typing a wee bit better.

My smartphone has a hardware keyboard. But it really isn't a lot better than a touch screen keyboard as the keys are too small for my fingers.
