    Greetings and salutations to all. I started becoming an Android fan a little less than a year ago when I purchased my 1st smart phone. (HTC EVO Design 4g) I really got my feet wet when I purchased a Logitech Review and hooked it up to my TV. (what a disaster!) I started looking at tablets about 4 months ago when my daughter-in-law purchased a Kindle Fire. 2 months ago, my son let it be known that an ASUS TF300 would be a perfect birthday gift. He is a chef and uses it to keep track of stock and place orders for supplies at his restaurant.
    I supervise diesel mechanics at the local transit agency but have always been a tech. junkie. I started building my own computers back when 386 cpu mother boards were new. Prior to that I participated in bulletin board discussions using my Commodore 64 and a modem that held the phone hand set in a cradle. (War Games, anyone?) I built my 1st home network when Windows 3.1 came out. I've dabbled in basic and can still recall most of the DOS and Unix command structure. The thing is, I just sort of got tired of it. When decent affordable laptops became a reality a few years ago I just started buying them for me and my wife.
    After playing around with my sons ASUS, I really started getting the tablet bug. I finally gave in and bought an Idolian Idolpad Plus from Amazon. After playing with it for a while, I decided that I HAD to have a larger, Cortex A9 tablet and purchased a Onda v811 from a Chinese company using Aliexpress. (That's a whole story in it's self!) Lately I've caught myself looking at 9.7 & 10.1 inch form factor units. So I guess you could say I've gotten the bug pretty bad. I've been using any free time (Is their any such thing?) I have to research processors, memory and such. I've just started getting in to rooting and custom ROM's and other software (&firmware) issues. I've been out of the game for far too long and have a lot of catching up to do. In any case, I feel that androidtablets will prove to be a great resource and am looking forward to time spent here.
