Pixel C – A love/hate story

Where to start? A few years ago, my old beloved Nexus 7 (2013 edition) gave up the ghost, so to speak, and I was in search of a new tablet. Mostly because of the Nexus 7, and because the Nexus 9 was being phased out (not to mention less good), I opted for a Google Pixel C tablet. 11″ screen, 4k resolution, aluminium case and matching keyboard… USB C connector… the works, and all for a mere king’s ransom of cash. What’s not to love? So, I won’t go to much into the tech specs of this device. Let’s just say it was then, by a long way, the best tablet on the market with any OS.  Continue reading “Pixel C – A love/hate story”

Some updates

Some updates

There have been a couple of updates to the blog including a new page regarding Privacy Policy in order to comply with EU GDPR, and changes to the Moderation Policy and Feedback pages.

In other news, I am no longer using Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr nor Twitter. If you followed me on these sites and wish to remain in contact, please leave some feedback, and we can sort out other options. I’ve not gone completely dark, just limiting my exposure to data harvesting.

If they want to block adult content, then that’s fine, but they need to be more realistic about their filters. And until they do, I’d rather not be reminded that they exist.

Thank you.

Headaches

Many apologies for not posting anything this weekend as I had planned. I’ve been suffering from headaches which I originally thought were due to alcohol but now seem to be more like caffeine withdrawal. Also it’s been hot in the house overnight so much dehydration.

Anyway, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, by which I mean hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Thanks.

With Apologies…

This blog seems to be getting loading problems. I’ve seen it and some of you have seen it too. I think it’s due to database caching, but I’m not sure. I am looking into it, but since it’s at a shared hosting provider there’s a limit to what I can see.

I’ve upgraded the cache and started a rebuild, so hopefully things will improve. Meantime, please bear with me. I’m hoping I don’t have to change hosting providers.
