So I have had my Galaxy tab for around 4-5 months now, maybe less, and there are just some things that bug me about it. Sure it is great having a mini portable computer, that takes a sim card, has portable in-built Wi-Fi… but it is nothing but a crappier version of a laptop… with less features, perks and you have to buy an attaching keyboard if you don’t like the touch screen.
Not only that, BUT the Android market does not offer you a free word document app that checks grammar and spelling. But it does offer you a wordpress app… Without the spell check,
this is insanely annoying because not only do I go through my posts and realize that i have made a lot of mistakes, I have left out letters that I could have sworn i had touched and i have added a lot of letters that didn’t need to go there at all…
Also not to mention the tablets inbuilt auto-correct is worse than those iPhone auto-correct screen shots you see floating around on facebook and on various sites. No it’s not that it auto-corrects words to what it thinks it should be… it AUTOMATICALLY places words it thinks should come after and changes words to make you sound like a blubbering idiot that doesn’t know what she is saying.
I am not saying that I dislike having a tablet… not at all, I just think that maybe the next time Samsung want to bring out ‘the next best thing’ someone should direct them over here to read this, just to get a few good and useful ideas.
1) We do not need auto-correct… we need a spell check option we can choose before we post up anything on the phone or tablet, and I mean anything
2) We need grammar checkers too… How else do you expect people with poor grammar to not only learn about it, but avoid the embarrassment and harassment that comes with not knowing your ‘shit’
3) I think it would be safe to say that maybe you should make it compatible with computers. I have an usb charger cord here and I plug it into my computer and then… yeah nothing happens. Thus leaving me sitting here after half an hour of trying to figure out how to use my Bluetooth settings, trying to Bluetooth all my eBook’s off my father’s computer onto my tablet.
4) MICRO SD SLOT… mine does not have one… so when my space runs out I will have to find some other way of storing the next 6 months of my life…
Just to number a few… Now I know you might be thinking “why don’t you just use your lap-top?”
Well that is a funny story… it is sort of broken, slow, doesn’t have a completely functional keyboard and my partner is using it… Oh did I mention it runs off the Android system too? Yeah, me thinks something fishy might be going on here.
So what are your thoughts readers, does your electronic device need something, what bugs you about it and what could you suggest for the next update (In hope that maybe these companies will come across this and steal our ideas, but only in order to benefit us.)
Looking forward to your responses
I thought that while I was still writing up the rest of my award post I would just suggest some cool new blogs and posts to have a look at enjoy!
My favorite passtime it to sit down and sip on some nice hot lemon and honey tea, and now a new addition, zen and yoga meditation music. The best part, my son loves the music too.
Ive read a few books in the past couple of months about meditation and the benifits of it, and now my mum has gotten into yoga and nutrition. She is studying t become a nutritionist and yoga teacher, hopefully if all goes to plan for her in the next 5 years she will be at the start of opening up her home business.
My fiance and I have been going through a tough and stressful time lately, but I think we have finally over come it. People think that we have a bad relationship and that I am a crazy woman… Well yes I am… But I am just a crazy pregnant woman with post natal depression from my first baby. I think I am going to go to see someone soon about it, actually take steps to working through everything and dealing with it. I think the reason people think I am crazy is because they havent took the time to get to know me, so they dont know my life story. No matter, I also have heaps of studying to do before next year, and 4 books to read before the end of october for my study. So my posts will be… Not so often, or I might still find the time to post nearly every day, who knows what the future holds.
Today I came up with 2 more ideas for my writing, one is a short story for children between 5-13 and another is for children aged 0-5. Although i do not know how i would go about publishing the one for younger kiddies I have been researching alot of the publishers in Adelaide. I was sent out a prospectus from an academy that I am interested in attending next year, which will be exciting (I will write about it if I ever get there) and I start two new subjects in november at uni, except these two subjects are at Curtin uni and Monash uni, lucky im studying via correspondance right? He he
So I just wanted to have a look see at my stats today and I see that I have over 400 followers now and I was shocked to see how many people from different countrys had stoped by to have a look too. If they stop by again I hope they read this and feel loved ((virtual internet hugs)) to everyone.
Soon I will be having another baby (as most of you know) I must say I am fairly scared about it. Ive been through labour, that was easy… Although i didnt get to finish because It all went horribly wrong and I needed an emergency c-section. They put me to sleep for that one, this time… I will be awake, and there is something that scares me about knowing on the other side of the blue screen… There will be the other half of my body open… Well on the bright side, its on the inside that counts right? ahhh… Still scared.
I will share the screen shots I took of all the different countrys.
I think that is pretty amazing, the fact that you can reach so many different people in a few months happy blogging everyone.
