What We Use, 2018 Edition: The stuff Rita can’t live without

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

It's been four years since I shared with you all the gadgets and quirky things that I own and love in my previous What We Use post. In the time since, a lot has changed in my personal life. I met the most awesome, weird, and pun-loving man. We got married, moved into an apartment of our own, and started traveling a little more frequently.

But a lot is still the same.

Not 2011: Barnes & Noble just announced a $129 Nook tablet that runs Android

Monday, November 5th, 2018

Yes, Barnes & Noble is still selling Nook devices. It can be easy to forget since you hear about the Nook so rarely, but the company is rolling out a new one just in time for the holiday season. Unlike past Nook tablets, this one isn't a re-branded Samsung tablet—it's just the Nook Tablet 10.1.

Presumably, this is a white label Android tablet customized for Barnes & Noble, but we don't have detailed specs to fully assess the hardware.

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

Could you or someone you know use a knockin'-around tablet? Considering the holidays are kind of right around the corner (December's five short weeks away!), I'm guessing the answer is yes. Amazon's running a killer deal on its eight-inch Fire tablet, which is currently going for as low as 60 bucks.

If you're looking for something to read comics, futz around on social media, or watch videos on, this is a hard deal to beat.

Brydge’s G-Type keyboard will make the Pixel Slate more of a conventional laptop

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

Alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel Slate was announced today. It's a big, expensive, 12-inch tablet with an optional first-party keyboard cover that turns it into a sort of half-measure laptop. For those seeking a more traditional computing experience (but not enough so to buy a traditional computer), Brydge has a product that may interest you: the G-Type keyboard.

 

The G-Type is a full-size backlit keyboard/track pad combo that snaps onto the bottom of the Slate.

Chrome OS Canary build now hides top browser UI when scrolling in tablet mode

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Most mobile browsers hide the top of the browser UI when you scroll down the page as a way to save space. Now, Chrome OS may start doing the same thing in certain instances. As usual, this change has appeared in the Canary build first.

Google's François Beaufort has shared an animation that shows off the new UI trick in Chrome OS. According to Beaufort, the browser UI at the top of the screen will scroll off the screen as you move down a page when the Chromebook is in tablet mode.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Fire 7 tablet on sale for $35 if you act fast (Prime members only)

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Amazon's Fire 7 tablet is usually quite inexpensive at $50, but now it's almost impossibly cheap for Prime members. If you act fast, you can get the entry-level tablet (with special offers) for a mere $35. This deal has been live for a few days, so it could go away at any time. Don't wait too long to decide.

The Fire 7 is not impressively specced, but it doesn't have to be for $35 (or even $50).

Just look at how stylish all the style is on this stylish Panasonic tablet

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Just look at it. Do you see those artful lines? Those graceful curves? This, my friends, is what you get when you don't set out to create just another boring-old utilitarian enterprise tablet for soulless purchasing departments — this is what happens when you put design on a pedestal and refuse to settle for less. Meet the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1.

Sure, Panasonic could play things safe and churn out another incremental Toughbook, a tablet with slightly better specs than before, and maybe the odd bell or whistle.

Amazon announces new Fire HD 8 with hands-free Alexa

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Amazon catapulted us into the age of budget Android tablets years ago with the original Fire, and its slates (surprisingly) still make up a large segment of the Android tablet market. That's not because of any particularly innovative designs or features. Amazon releases cheap new Fire tablets all the time that look almost exactly like the previous version. That's the case today with the new Fire HD 8. It's like the old HD 8 but with hands-free Alexa support.

Lenovo announces 5 new Android tablets, including the first running Go Edition

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Android tablets have never been entirely convincing, and with the introduction of Chrome OS tablets, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Android slates were going to go away completely. That may well be the long-term plan but it didn't stop Samsung from trying their luck with the Galaxy Tab S4. Now, Lenovo is releasing a fleet of new large-screen Android devices.

No fewer than five new tablets were announced by Lenovo today, with two distinct ranges.
