Tablet Musings

Theses articles are about the role of tablets and speculation as to what degree they are a fad.

What Do You Use Your Tablet For?

MakeUseOf Experiments: Going Tablet-Only For a Week & Staying Productive

In my own case, I use a 10" tablet to play games, a 7" tablet to read books. Both are used occasionally to check email or browse the web, but I MUCH prefer to use a Chromebook to do either task. I also blog from a Chromebook. I read news from Chromebook, smartphone and tablet (in order of frequency).

So, how about clicking through and leaving a comment?

  1. I agree with you, Brian - I use a 7" tablet for reading and viewing short videos, maybe posting short items to social media services, but I prefer a more interactive experience with a Chromebook or even on at my desk via laptop/Chromebook. I have a 10" tablet, and I use it in the same way as the 7" tablet - as a "consumption-mainly" device, but less frequently.
