    Are you obsessed with apps?

    I'm not but am tempted to get carried away due to both the iOS and Android app store being so vast.

    Some of my friends just seem to download anything they find remotely interesting, I mean don't get me wrong, I usually get as far as the description page but rarely download unessential stuff mainly because I'm paranoid from PC spyware.

    The same with Facebook apps, I don't think I use any apps, don't trust most of that crap either.

    My only problem with apps is that, as of right now, there's nothing my new tablet can do that my current laptop can't. So far I've only used Facebook, Skype, some other miscellaneous apps that came free, and the browser (which I'm using now). That's pretty much it. I also like typing on a standard keyboard than on a touchpad, and the hard drive space on my laptop is obviously superior [500 GB to a measly 16GB], so I have more access to music and stuff. Also, I'm more familiar with how my laptop works, so that's a better reason for me to bebiased
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    Same here RT, I'm more involved in my laptop than my phone. Then again my personal phone is a Nokia X2 messenger that's three years old. My work phone is an Android Razor, but the IT guys told us to only use it for work related use. So, cool phone, but can't use it for entertainment use. In short, no.

    Well, that really sucks. What's the point of using awesome technology if you can't use it for awesome things?

    I was going to say that I might need to keep experimentimg with my tablet to make it more efficient, but the touch pad is too sensitive and it keeps touching the voice activated seach right underneath the M key. It's really annoying.

    I have a sneaky suspension they put monitoring software on the phone to make sure that we're not abusing the work phone like they do with the computers there too and yes that was my thought too. We could have bought a bunch of flip phones at Wal-Mart for like $20 to $30 each. I was thinking of getting a Kindle Fire, but if you read the Merchandise part of the forums I'm sort on cash for awhile. Well, I'm really happy with what I got instead anyway.

    It's almost the other way round for me: "there's little my computer/laptop can do that my phone can't". Because obviously, my phone can't run Crysis. But it can do other things very impressively. For example, I watched a 1080p film on it once. It has a dual-core processor so it can handle a lot of things well. I know watching 1080p on a fairly small (big for a mobile, though) screen is stupid, but it was the only format of the video I could get at the time.

    I do many of my daily activities on my phone. Here is an example. Many people transfer data to their phone via USB, if they even have the ability to do that. I do, and much more. I don't even need USB or Wi-Fi. Or Bluetooth for that matter. Why? Because I download the data from the source using my phone. I have an FTP client on my phone which I use to download my data from my server in Luxembourg. I can download just as fast as my PC: nearly a megabyte a second. And with not far off 80GB of storage, seldom do I have to worry about deleting things.

    As for apps, I have a lot of them installed. I use a very useful app from AppBrain called AppBrain Ad Detector, but detecting ads isn't all that it does. Android usually does this for me before I install anything, but it gives me specific information about what the apps retrieve from my phone when I install them. Usually, the purpose is safe. For example, if I install an app to create ringtones from MP3s on my phone which also has the ability to assign them to my contacts (Android can do this, but it's for convenience), it tells me the app has access to my contacts. Obviously, it needs the access to assign the MP3s to them.

    Very few things that make it onto the Android marketplace are malicious, and I always read reviews beforehand.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    For now, not too many apps are malware, but eventually it will get there just like our PCs. Hell, Norton as of two years ago started to add on a protection program for smart phones with there 360 program. Does me no good in the end if you read my post above.

    RE: Are you obsessed with apps?

    I guess I'm just not too familiar with smart phones/tablets for me to use them to their full potential. I guess it's just like with anything else that's "new"; you have to adjust. But for now, I'll take my back-lit QWERTY laptop keyboard over the touchpad any day.

    As for Norton...there's a bit I can say about antivirus software that should probably be saved for another thread. As far as that goes, stick to freeware whenever possible.
