Larger Phones Less Tablets?

I have the opportunity to get a shinny new iPhone 6 under the Verizon Edge plan. My first thought is that I know I want to get the 64 Gig. I have a 5C now with 16 Gig and it always seems full. As I have been looking at others who have the new iPhone I have been asking if I should get the Plus 5.5″? The first person I talked to told me “YES!” She says that she never uses her iPad any longer. She tells me she can watch movies on it and read books. The next person … Continue reading

New 10.1″ Next Book

I was searching some black Friday deals the other day and I came across this little charmer. Meet the 10.1″ Next Book. I picked this up from Wal-Mart.

New Toshiba Encore 7″Mini

I am writing this post on my new 7″ tablet. If anything looks weird its because of this touch screen. The touch keyboard is not bad. The down side if writing with two fingers! I ordered a mouse and keyboard for this device I will report on those items when I get them. So far for $109.00 this little unit works well and is very light to carry. More to come later.

Most people if not all will tell you that they use their tablet for reading or watching videos.
