Say What??

You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new.

Top 10 Tablets

 

Considering all of the cool and amazing features that the latest tablets are offering, and all the convenience they bring to the table, the reason we all want them so badly can be stated in three words; tablets are cool. I remember when mp3 players and phones made the jump into the touch screen era, how amazing it was to me that email, photos, music and anything else i could want was literally a touch away, like a miniature computer i could keep in my pocket. Now that tablets have become popular I find myself once again fascinated at all the savvy features and functionality they offer, and just how cool they really are. With web browsing, Ebooks, email, photos, games, and hundreds of apps that do anything and everything you can think of all with a sleek touchscreen interface large enough to get the job done but still light enough to be super portable, the question is why would anyone not want one? The mobility and portability combine to effectively revolutionize the way we play, relax, and work!
