So today at work was pretty unique. They decided to toss me out into field so I could get a little experience there. What field basically means is I go to one specific section and look after all the tech support requests from that area, moving this or that bit of hardware to this or that building. Example, someone needs a new monitor. I lug it over to their building then fill out some stupid forms. Funny part is I lasted just under an hour and went straight back, telling the 3 major bosses who took me in for a private chat about it that I refused to do more as I had done that sort of thing before at a previous job and specified I wasnt to do that here when they signed me up. They laughed since they seem to like me and had no problem with me going back to my usual help support role.
I finally got my new toy the other day. The Asus Eeepad Transformer Tablet. Heres a couple pics..
This is the 10" touchpad. Its extremely responsive, awesome quality screen, on par with the ipad. Its also got a bunch of really cool extras like mini sdcard slot, mini hdmi out so you can beam 1080p clips onto a tv, and a bunch of other things. Battery life is like 9hours.
This part is why its called the Transformer. You can buy a separate keyboard dock that turns it into a netbook. It also has some extra usb ports on in and an SD card slot. The coolest part? It doubles as a battery too. Together it reaches 16hours. Pretty damn awesome.
Sadly I need to send mine back to get it looked at. Theres a dust spec under the screen and its annoying. So yeah, send off and wait for replacement. Otherwise it works like a dream. Easily the best android tablet around and very similar to the ipads performance in terms of scrolling and gaming etc. I love me some electronics.
Pretty sure there was something I wanted to mention, but with the extreme lack of sleep I've had over the past week or so has pretty much frazzled my brain. My cats definitely getting better though. Almost a week since he got sick and today was the first time he rubbed his head against my leg and roamed around the house. I'll admit I was fairly stressed over his health. But thankfully he's coming back to his best. So happy. At least somethings going right.
