I am looking for a tablet for my mom.  She’s 75 so the 7-inch models are out of the question.  She won’t do very much on the tablet besides the casual internet browsing, emails, Facebook, YouTube, and Skype (with me).  I focused on the 10-inch models so that the font size is bigger and is easy on her eyes.

After much looking and comparing, I settled on the ASUS Transformer 10.1″ Tablet.  The nice thing about it is it comes with a keyboard dock for easy typing.  The dual front and rear cameras will come in handy.  The front camera is 1.2 MP which she can use with Skype.  The rear camera is 8 MP which will take great pictures.

I am super excited about the purchase and looking forward to its arrival for a test drive before I give it to my mom.

Google is selling its new all-in-one 22-inch desktop PC for $350.  In comparison, the cheapest 22-inch iMac today is $1,300.  The cheapest all-in-one desktop PC is HP 20-inch model for $380 at Best Buy.  Therefore, the brand new Google desktop does seem to be a viable option if you prefer the Android operating system.

It does not come with a hard drive, so you must store your documents and media files in the cloud.  The drawbacks of using cloud storage can be:

  • If you need a large amount of storage space, you have to pay for the space on an annual subscription basis.
  • If you lose Wi-Fi connection, you won’t be able to retrieve any file.

I currently have a carry-on that can be placed under the seat on the plane.  It is 17″ W x 14″ H x 7″ D.  However, depending on the types of aircraft, sometimes I can’t even fit it under the seat on a 757.  It is definitely a no on a much smaller regional jet from Cleveland, OH to Detroit, MI.

I was looking at this Rolling Laptop Cases at Brookstone but its size was a little bit larger than the one I have.  Therefore, I decided against it.  The reviews look good.  It’s just that I don’t want the pink tag when I fly the regional jet, and then have to wait for the bag on the jetway.

An undisputed American icon, John Wayne is recognized the world over  for his signature drawl and confident swagger; the ultimate  personification of American courage and honor. This fall, John Wayne  Enterprises has chosen powerHouse Books to produce the first-ever  exclusively authorized photographic record of his life, both on-screen  and off. John Wayne: The Legend and the Man celebrates Duke’s life and  legacy through film stills and backstage photos and snapshots ranging  from his cinematic masterpieces—True Grit, Rio Grande, Sands of Iwo Jima, The Quiet Man, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Fort Apache, and The Alamo—to a surprising variety of early-career, leading-man films: The Big Trail, Stagecoach, Flying Tigers, They Were Expendable.  Also included are a wide selection of fan mail art; family albums,  photos from friends and loved ones, and the many treasures gathered over  the years in his immense archive (famed film costumes, publicity photos  exchanged with costars, telegrams and medals), many of the photos and  these personal effects being published for the first time, and all from  Duke’s personal archive. Duke was more than just his on-screen persona—he was known by loved  ones for his warmth, charm, charisma, passion, loyalty, and spirit.  Through an in-depth exposé of the memorabilia, the private moments, the  inner thoughts, and familial memories, John Wayne: The Legend and the Man captures both the man and the myth and furthers the legacy of this giant of American cinema.“This wonderful collection of photographs gives us John Wayne the  figurehead, John Wayne the actor, and John Wayne the human being. It’s a  rich experience to look through these pages and see where Wayne’s three  roles converged and diverged…. And in all the photos, you see another, earlier America with different ideas of glamor, beauty, fashion, and  behavior, a world that now feels as distant as the renaissance.   A movie-made hero…a superstar, one of the very first…an image of  manhood…and a great American artist. This book affords us a generous  look at John Wayne from every angle.” —Martin Scorsese, from the Introduction “To the people of the world, John Wayne is the United States of  America. He is what they believe it to be. He is what they hope it will  be. And he is what they hope it will always be.” —Maureen O’Hara “In my acting, I have to identify with something in the character.  The big tough boy on the side of right—that’s me. Simple themes. Save me  from the nuances. All I do is sincerity, and I’ve been selling the hell  out of that ever since I started.” —John Wayne (Time, June 9, 1967)
