Welcome back to work 2013...yuck.


Maybe it was too much time off, but after a 10 hour day to open the new year back at work I'm bone tired and not sure how I'm going to make it through the rest of the week much less the rest of the year.

I'm just hoping that by the time I get my rhythm back for the work grind, my bonus in March gives me a little spark to carry me through the rest of the year.

Maybe.

Went to the phone store today - grandmother inherited her sisters iPhone 4 when she upgraded so we activated that. Found out my brother had an upgrade on his line so I bought an iPhone 5 for him for his bday in Feb. THEN after I jokingly told the sales guy I was interested in the new note (but my upgrade wasnt until next year Jan.) he mentioned if grandma ok'd it I could use her upgrade... So I got a Note II, and I'm in love as I have been before when I first laid eyes on one...

Anyways, 16g white HTC One X FS... $250 and it's yours!

Aren't these just trying to be really small iPads that also make phone calls?

Why compromise what a decent size tablet can do just so you can talk on the phone? Why not just get a basic cell phone for talking and a decent sized tablet for doing the rest of the stuff when you want to do that?

Compromise in these devices just seems to me to be sacrificing capability just to have it all-in-one and not really be able to either all that well. (too small to be an effective tablet and too large to be a truly convenient phone). These days, a capable phone could be put in a Blue Tooth ear piece with nothing larger needed to simply have a conversation. Link it to a nice small portable tablet and you have everything you need.

What am I missing?

For me personally, it's about having a phone with a big a** screen. When I swapped from an iPhone 4 to an Inspire it was mainly for a larger screen, I've just always been a fan of em. Next was the One X (a little bit larger) then when I saw the first Note and played with one I liked it even more.

I'm never on a phone with just one hand either, so the inability to text with one hand - though still a downside in general - doesn't apply to me. I'm also on my phone more than I am a computer to do most things almost to the point where I'm only on my computer to do design work, 99% of everything else is done via the phone (games, movies and all that jazz too).

I've kinda considered a tablet before but I kinda feel like I would have it and never use it. Instead I'd be doing what I should be on the tablet, on my phone.

You proved my point exactly. What you want is a nice size screen to do most things and the fact that it makes phone calls is incidental. An in-between size tablet that has phone capability is what you really want.

I was all ready to watch the new episode of "Castle" last night, when BAAM! The power goes out right at 9:59pm!

Naturally, it came back on at 11:01pm...
