Woot Deal! Archos 7 Home Tablet (8GB)

Here is another tablet on Woot for you to grab. For $79.99 you get a Android 1.6 tablet. It has Wi-FI, Micro SD slot, 2 built in speakers, 7 hour viewing time, and a kick stand. This would be the perfect little device for browsing the web or having a collection of movies to watch on the go. The original price is $149.99 so this is a pretty good deal.

Sis years ago I saw a device that was just for watching media on the go. It was $400 for a 3" screen and 4GB of memory. I would say that we have come a long way in portable devices.

The Android Market does not come stock on this tablet. Other options would be to put the Amazon App Store on it or if you search YouTube you will find out how to install the Android Market. If you have any doubt about how awesome and amazing this tablet is you really need to check out this video because it is awesome and amazing!

Archos' G9 Tablets, with Android 3.1

Tablet after tablet it seems like they are the same specs. 16GB, 1GHz, Dual Core Processor, Wi-Fi. The Archos' G9 really stands out in this area. It has a 250 GB HDD, and a 1.5 GHz Dual Core processor, and optional 3G stick. One of my favorite features is kickstand. Start saving your pennies, this could be the one.

How to Galaxy Tab

This last week Samsung rolled out the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It runs Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) and is known to be the thinest and lightest tablet on the market.

When this was first announced it looked like just another tablet. Once the iPad 2 was announced Samsung reworked the design of the Galaxy Tab put it on the market very quickly.

Samsung has put together a few how to videos about getting started and basic navigation of the tablet. They are the perfect videos to watch if this is going to be your first tablet or Android device.

How to add a website shortcut on your iPad home screen

This video demonstrates how to add a web address shortcut on the iPad to your home screen. This makes it easy to go to any website just like an app.

Simply go to the website you would like to have on your home screen and press the share button next to the bookmark button. Once you press that press "Add to home screen". It will take a small snapshot of the page and let you enter a name for the shortcut.

Sometimes the webpage will have a pre-selected icon that will make it look really nice. If this is not the case you can zoom in on a certain part of the page and it will capture that area to give you a better view of what the page actually is.

In the email spot type in your full Gmail or Google Account address. Leave the domain blank. Next type in your full email address, then password and then name the account.

iChromy: A Google Chrome Based App For iPad

iChromy for iPad is a really great app. It has a few features that makes me feel right at home. Chrome is the main browser that I use. Safari misses some things and iChromy makes up for those.

After spending just a few minutes with it here are the features I really enjoyed. From the very first time you open the app it feels like you are in Chrome. It has tabbed browser which is a must on any modern day browser. It also has the star in the top right corner that allows you to easily bookmark pages.

See video after the break.

Ode to Chad's iPad

This is Chad's iPad
He did not think it was a fad
Protected it with ZAGG
It fit very well in a bag
At work it brought him joy
As if he was a little boy
He put his boy in the car
Placing the iPad on top but not far
To his destination her arrived
At that moment he almost cried
Tracing back his drive
The iPad looked still alive
Leaping into traffic was his desire
Right before it was run over by a tire.

Help my friend. Auction ends soon. Ebay
Update: Auction Ended, let me know if you want to help him get a new one.

Steve Jobs Presents New Office

If you think your day job is just another job in another building it probably is, unless you work for Apple. Yesterday Steve Jobs presented a new office building to hold 12,000 employees in Cupertino. Steve is definitely the creator or jobs. This building will not just be the only location for Apple but it will be an addition too an existing office which will continue to hold 8,000 employees.

Now if you didn't know, Steve Jobs is the CEO of Apple Inc. and Apple is the creator of the iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iPod Touch, iPhone, and the iPad. It looks like the Cupertino City Council is pretty star struck and to much in love to give any opposing vote.
