So far, I been using a Lenovo Tab 2 covered with a HotCool case - as far as surfing the web and accessing digital copies of books, PDF's, guides, and so forth. It eliminates most of the weight and I don't have to carry heavier physical copies of books/stuff as we all know.

I like the idea of having an Android tablet (although some still prefer the iPad's) that is not only reliable but also more rugged/protected with a good case to add on to it. But are there any other tablets and/or cases better than a Tab 2 with HotCool?! If not, just as good?!

I use a Nexus 7 but it's 5 years old and despite the devices popularity Google decided not to release a new version for some reason..... so I'm thinking of getting another brand, can I ask why you went for the Lenovo ? I've been thinking about an iPad myself - I'm generally Android orientated but owning a MacBook laptop has given Apple a foothold in my life....

as far as what's best for travelling goes I'd say good battery life and an SD card slot would be important to me and I'd want another 7 inch (or 8 inch) model, they're plenty big enough for watching films etc - think I'd find a 10 inch to big for travelling....

My brother assigned me the Tab 2, so I was forced to work with it. I didn't have any option at the time.

Ive had a lot of luck with an ipad pro 9.7” in the otter box case. Thing is basically indestructable, and if i keep the screen brightness down i still get 8 hours of battery life no problem.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
