Before 2010, there were no touch-centric tablets, only laptops that had stylus-driven screens. Suddenly, when the iPad burst upon the scene and gave tablet makers permission to dream of a touch-oriented screen and apps that could be on a larger screen than a phone, the world changed. Tablets that vaguely resemble the iPad have come… Read More

This new RealPad from AARP probably isn’t a lot different from many other 7.9″ Android tablets on the market, but it has one advantage over them.  The fact that AARP is endorsing them and has some of their services set up as apps on the tablet may be enough to give tech-fearful people the confidence to think… Read More

I’ve been an Apple product user since 1987, and wear that badge with honor. So I’ve never really used Android more than just flicking around on demo models in stores or using a friend’s device. That’s why, when Julie offered this unit to the team, I thought I’d take it for a test spin. What… Read More

I’m a recent “convert” from iOS to Android.  After owning first-and second-generation iPads, along with the iPhone 3GS and 4S, I decided to move over to Android, since those devices had more interesting features and naturally integrated with all the Google apps that I used.  With more features coming out in Android OS updates, I’ve… Read More

If like me your Android devices are rooted and running alternate ROMs  then you’ll be sick of downloading 200+MB files everytime an update comes out.
