First impressions of Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet

First of all it has micro USB charging and standard cable. Thank you! For the good. Reasonable weight, good screen and very fast. As for its ports;
USB (Full Size0
3 in 1 Flash card reader
Dock connector
HDMI and more!

They got all of this right!

It is a bit thick, however for the ports I see the need to be this size. It does have a bunch of junk programs pre installed. Easy to get rid of.

I have two complains. The on board memory of 16 GB. Should be 32 or 64 with my experience of the other tablets. With music, documents and video you will use this. Now the nice thing is you can use the ports for more memory.

THE PEN. This tablet accepts a pen and it can store on-board. Has a nice slot for it. To my surprise it was empty? Come on, now you have to order a $35 pen (Plus shipping) Just build it in.

Otherwise. It is not the most thin. However it has the best configuration and expandability.

How good is Sonos?

(Sonos - My whole home audio system)

It is so good that when I play music recorded live it messes with the dog. It got to the point that I had to put her out because she barked, wandered around looking for people and went into security mode.

Now that is clear music.

Lets get Serious Sirius

I was speaking to Loren the other day about Satellite Radio and he suggested this blog. So in dedication here it goes.

Loren a long time Sirius subscriber recently wanted to add a new car to his subscription. He called and they could not add the radio due to it being an XM Satellite Radio instead of a Sirius. Now if you did not know this, they are the same company! See here!

They told Loren he would have to open a new XM account. Well it cost them the business. Maybe they will some day learn about customer service (I doubt it)

If you remember some years ago I dropped my Sirius because the rates continued to go up and then they removed services (In my particular case I wanted the online streaming and it had been removed. It was additional)

Now I get emails from Sirius asking me to come back for rates like $5 for 6 months with no commitment past that. Well if you would have just had the online streaming in my $20 a month rate I would have kept your service and you would have made way more money.

I like the service, it worked well. However I do not see me going back.

To you Facebook Whiners (Jenifer this is you!)

I am told that Facebook has changed its view. To be honest I didn't even notice. I use the app. However, this is called progress. You cannot live in your old ways. (While I am on the subject of upgrades, you people who are using Word Perfect, just give up and go back to your typewriter (Which by the way they have upgraded to MS Office 2010!))

Anyway I have a few things for you whiners of the new Facebook look.

Me in Education Again?

If you have read my blog before you probably know about my questionable past with Education. I was constantly fighting the system. Few teachers challenged me (Other than giving me those less than perfect grades). I wanted more out of education and felt like I was given less.

Now that I have moved on from High School and College I continue to read quite a bit. From books to magazines and of course the Kindle app. Constantly trying to learn more.

Anyway, I recently learned that I was posted on BCC (Barton Community Colleges) web site. I have been part of this group for a couple of years. Click here to see!

Guess you cannot complain about a system unless you are willing to help change it.
