I expect the same Frank but not sure why one of my friend who attended quoted as "boring". I wish I had time to visit.

The current generation of tablet computers are being used primarily for "lean-back" activities like watching videos and browsing. We recently conducted a consumer survey of 8000 consumers in 8 countries and found that the primary activities on tablets are browsing the web (76% of consumers surveyed), checking email (75%) and watching videos (64%). Maybe time to check out an iPad? Kumu Click here to see more details on the research:

The tablet story continues to fascinate me. I purchased one of the early non-Apple tablets 4 years ago only to return it after few weeks of usage. Neither a cell phone, neither a laptop I could not find any meaningful use of it. I am still puzzled what people use it for! Any ideas why this device seems to be getting so popular...Kris
