I am really start to apprecaite my new Samsung 303C Chromebook that I got at a much reduced price at Best Buy last weekend. At first I thought, “Cool, but not it lacks some major stuff”, but now with new apps and extensions, it is working great.
The really big thing I missed first was Microsoft’s “Live Write” which is a must have for boggers, WordPress people (which this and most of my sites are made of), etc. But then I remembered an app I used years ago and didn’t like called, “ScribeFire”. It is similar to LW but not quite as good; however, the new version, though not perfect is much better than the old. That is what this was typed on.
I will continue to experiement and see how it works. But so far, I like it at around two pounds, smaller and also fits in my ScottEvest.
I will let you know over time how it is working.
Obama missed the deadline and is now resetting it without any shame. WASHINGTON – President Obama’s healthcare rollout re-do is headed for a crucial test today and there’s a lot on the line.
If the federal healthcare.gov website doesn’t deliver, the president’s credibility, political support and fate of his landmark health care law could be in jeopardy.
Here is just one of hundreds of ways in the Register to prove the point…I’m just saying.
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is projecting that the food service industry will have to spend an additional 14 million hours every single year just to comply with new federal regulations that mandate that all vending machine operators and chain restaurants must label all products that they sell with a calorie count in a location visible to the consumer.
Do we really need to spend 14 million more hours telling Americans that if they keep eating hamburgers and fries that they are likely to get fat?“
More proof the government is nuts. OK, they say second hand smoke is the reason for the restriction…so think about it.
Did you really think the Constitution protected you in your home? Not according to the Democrats. They want you to stop smoking Marlboro’s in your home. Read the bill carefully, it will be OK to smoke marijuana though.
I have to say that Google and Asus have created one of the best 7″ tablets out there…currently available.
Yes, I am a Google fanboy so iPads are not on my favorites list. They are excellent but the new Nexus has it beat.
It is smooth, quicker than the previous version, which was great too, and the apps available at Google Play are about limitless.
The great 1,920-by-1,200-pixel resolution and 323 pixels per inch are sharp, very sharp.
Battery life is rated at about 10 hours. All I can say is that over a couple of days I checked email, browsed a bunch of sites, played a few games (backgammon by AI is one of my go tos) and watched 4 hours of Netflix. When I was done I still had slightly more than 50% of my battery life left.
All around a great device.
Do you have any thoughts?
Well, it finally happened on this site. My password was “brute force” hacked and someone posted junk all over the place.
I have now removed it and created a much better password so I hope that helps.
If you read this site and know me, which you probably do if you found it, then you know what I would and would not allow to be posted here…much less by me. So if you come here and see junk please let me know know. Thanks and now back to the regularly scheduled programming.
