My tablet's home page

This is just a quick update with an image of my main page with it's awesome background. It is a stunning picture my housemate helped me to find on a site called
I currently have my apps spread over three pages ( home, general, and games) and a fourth page dedicated to system management.

When I started writing just now I discovered i can type just by swiping between the keys I want rather than having to type each letter. It's a much quicker way to type and the predictive options mean I can misspell or skip punctuation and then just select the exact word I'm after. I know it's not new technology but it's the first device I've owned with the option. ^-^

Edit: Uploaded a better quality image.

such a long time since i posted anything.

I last posted quite a while ago because just as i was getting an idea of what i wanted to write, my best friend got admitted to hospital. That was an odd fortnight. I visited nearly every day and was just too tired and in pain to be blogging when I was online in the evenings.
Having spent a week with her helping her to recuperate after surgery I came home but just never got round to blogging, mainly because the past few weeks have caught up with my back.

I received a new toy today. I am now the proud owner of an Asus eee pad transformer prime.
It's sort of a replacement for my laptop which is on its last legs because the current generation of CPUs has priced me out of getting a laptop powerful enough or my needs.
This tablet is remarkably powerful for its tiny size. I've installed games on it which cause my laptop to throw a fit and crash, and they run beautifully. I purchase every humble bundle which gets released and there have now been 2 which contain games for android so my little tablet's game collection is a lovely size now.
The humble bundle is a great system where you pay what you like, even as little as a penny, though i disapprove of such, to receive several indie games. You get to choose how much of your money goes to charity, the developers and the people hosting the bundle.
I'm writing this blog in the android blogger app, and it's going very well. The keyboard dock for my tablet makes typing very easy, which is really helpful if browsing the internet. That's not to say the onscreen keyboard is bad, but i prefer the tactile feedback of real keys.

I'll see if I can get some images to add to this post tomorrow. Right now I'm still just having fun learning all about my new toy.
