We bought a tablet. I am not exactly sure why we needed it. I guess it's sort of an I-pad knockoff. I don't get it though. I don't know what it's purpose is. So far it seems to be an over sized cell phone that lacks the calling function.
I am notorious for my lack of new technology. My cell phone was purchased at Target for $29.00 and I have the T-mobil pay as you go plan because I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I had a cell phone contract. I think I would have a full blown panic attack if I paid $100 a month for cell service. I pay that amount once a year and it lasts all year long. I don't make a lot of phone calls and I only use the internet at home.
Sometimes I feel like I don't get it. I see people on their phones constantly and I always wonder what they're doing. Are they talking or texting? Are they playing some great game I've never heard of? Are they using some great "app" I've never heard of? I downloaded my first app today on that tablet. I got Angry Birds.......because I've heard of it before. I don't know what else I need. I have no idea what is available or why I would need it. I'm in over my head here.
I think I'm supposed to read books on it or watch movies on it.....at least I think that's what it's for. But I read paper books and I would way rather watch a movie on my full size T.V. I hope I figure this all out or I'm going to feel beyond stupid for purchasing it. At least it was a great price. My kids enjoyed playing Angry Birds for an hour while I cleaned out my closet. Dave told me to watch a tutorial about it on Newegg.com, but I don't have the attention span for such tasks.
If anyone knows what the benefit of having a huge telephone that makes no phone calls is.....let me know. I really do want to be in the know.
