Tablet shipments slow for first time, down 5 percent – CNET

I always preferred my phone over tablets.. Glad to see the market catching up.

It seems to me that tablets need to evolve to become better and easier to use as BlueTooth devices.. I just swear the connectivity I have between my car stereo and my cell phone is just the most fantastic invention ever. I do think that there needs to be more control over BlueTooth.. Like my ex wife would always FREAK out when her calls would get transferred to the car stereo when I was in the car.. I should have known she was Good-for-nothing back then LOL.

I just love my phone.. Six inches of joy that never runs out of new features.  Really looking forward to learning more about building mobile apps this summer.. I know I am a little bit late to the party 🙂
