I have been stalking the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 for over a year now. My current tablet is two versions previous and has been under performing for me over the past 8 months, every month feeling more excruciating. While I will always be a PC desktop person, when not there, my tablet is my life. It's also what I use to take most of my Sphynxie pics with and do my photo filtering etc. Any way...

It's officially released here in Canada this Friday but I preordered and received mine today!!!! I've been stalking the Purolator delivery guy for 48 hours. When he arrived this afternoon I told him that if he'd had a publicly available GPS tracker I'd have been waiting at the door 5 minutes ago with a coffee in hand for him.

The camera is tonnes better than what I'm using now. My Sphynxie Saturday Selfies might actually be a little clearer now. ha ha.

Yes, I'm an excited nerd. Now I just wait for it to charge!!!!

And yes, I'm so classy... using my stove with one burner missing as a backdrop to photog this great piece of tech. LOL

ETA: I'm a bit bummed because residents of Germany who pre-ordered received the keyboard case for free and we didn't here in Canada. Wahhhhh. LOL

Thank you, @Catzzzmeow . They totally are. It's been a while since I've been waiting and stalking some tech. LOL. Although using gift cards and not shelling out of personal pocket makes this all the sweeter. Can't wait to take pics of Max and Min!!!!

Nice !!! I love my desk top , but its been on my living room table ( it is a Mac ) , i been eyeing the Mac book pro and taadaaa i went out Sunday and got it !! I seen a open box one online and the store around my corner had it , the price was 900 instead of over a grand but it was for the 13 inch . Well I got there and it was way too small and so i bit the bullet and got the 15 inch!!
Yay for our Toys !!!!! Love my new laptop !!! Congrats on yours .

heeee. I'm still getting used to this tablet so a little shaky in the hands. Plus I'm not a huge fan of the new camera software so am looking for another. But...

VERY low light this morning. Max is sad with our miserable weather.

Max tries to help me with the laundry.

Max trying to change the weather outside. BTW, a tip for those with cat trees -- stuff some kraft paper in one of the tunnels or holes and then rustle it with your hands. New toy!!!

Yes! I am really excited because my computer took a poo so I haven't been able to do as much. Now back on the Lair will be easier than just my phone

@NinaGato -- Hubby and I were just talking this morning that tablets are really the main computing tech for most people these days and the near future. Desktops are still important for most work, and power users & gamers. But for social media, email, surfing, Netflix, etc., a good tablet will do you.

Actually, last night I installed some Adobe photo apps on my tablet, including LightRoom, so I'm keen to see how powerful they are.

Congrats, again, on your iPad. Enjoy the fun apps!!!

@Xandria I just love how slick it is. As far as apps, I don't play interactive games. I love word games and since too many cheaters in Words with Friends, I play Upwords...usually have 10-15 games going at a time. I love the ease of surfing, FB, IG and of course Sphynxlair! Any you are partially in to?
