I know I should be used to this since I've been building computers since 1982 (the Oric was my first love, I believe) but about fifteen minutes after buying my last android tablet it was hopelessly obsolete.
I bought a generic model from a TV shopping channel - I'll never make that mistake again, especially as it spectacularly croaked a few weeks ago.
My new one has a quad core CPU. No biggy there you might say, but my last one barely had a CPU at all. More like a CP EUUWW.
Now I can get back to some serious writing when I'm supposed to be working, if I can just stop playing 3d Solitaire.
And if I can just resist sitting on it, dropping tea all over it, leaving it on the roof of the car when I drive off or allowing the cat to use it as a toilet, it should last me at least a month before becoming a dinosaur like the last one.
And while I'm on the subject of rubbish computers; why won't Chrome work for me? I tried to install it through four browsers (including the one I wrote myself) and finally managed to get it down properly. So why won't it work? I've looked at a million internet forums and the people are equally divided between: "It's absolutely the bestest browser ever written ", and "Why won't the *"£%^*)"$ thing work?"
