Old-fashioned landlines (also known at POTS, for "Plain Old Telephone Service" -- yes, really) allowed two (or more) people to speak at the same time, with all the sound (and occasionally, let's face it, fury) audible to both parties. Sometimes I miss that.
Samsung is trying its best to become, if not the sole purveyor of Android devices, certainly the top source. With all the usual sound and fury, the company has announced its latest tablet: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, a new high-end device with sleek lines, an impressively light weight and a very bright, sharp screen.
While, as a technology journalist, I try to maintain a certain objectivity about the products and companies I cover, I can't help regretting it when a company that had a good idea and a well-implemented product doesn't make it.
While it's not the top of the tablet line, the Acer Iconia One 7 is a solid choice for users who want a good-enough device for Web surfing, social networking and the occasional video without breaking their budget.
