Playing a Bit More With the Google Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 is the first device I've ever owned that has facial recognition as a security feature that actually works. Every time. Go figure.

I have a laptop with facial recognition and it NEVER has worked - I've always had to key in.

I'm really enjoying reading my RPG PDFs on the Nexus. Having a really sharp screen does help.

I still need to test G+ Hangouts on this. I'll add an update when I get around to it.

Bluetooth keyboard is certainly the way to go. I need to give a bluetooth mouse a try.

Definitely worth $200 if your are looking for a tablet.


  1. Beyond the theft what makes me angry is that stuff like that endangers the OSR. If in reaction to things like that WotC (I mean, Hasbro) decided to start suing OSR publishers it would be a disaster. While in theory the OGL would offer ample legal protection, the truth of the matter is that very few of them would have the resources to defend themselves in court. In most cases like that people end up settling out of court with the big-pocket litigant just to minimize their costs and get out as cleanly as possible.

  2. What PDF reader are you using? I have tried a couple, but when dealing with two column pages and in portrait mode...that is a bit small for my eyeballs.

  3. Well, google openID does not seem to work as well as I'd like... id is me.
