Thread Name: Tech: Do I Want a Tablet?
Subject: RE: Tech: Do I Want a Tablet?
OK, so I broke down and bought a Kindle Fire. There are lots of things I like about it, and Angry Birds is really addictive; but surfing the Internet on a tablet is like camping out, doing things the hard way. I often display two windows side-by-side on my desktop computer so I can copy things from one page to the other, but this seems impossible on a 7-inch tablet (I have a 32-inch monitor on my desktop). I also haven't figured out how to copy text from one screen and paste it into another. It's nice in many ways because it's far more portable than my laptop, but doing actual work on it seems to be quite difficult.
