On a train heading to Osaka

Today is my birthday. I am trying out my new birthday present. It is a Nexus 7. I don’t know if I am  the first Nexus post but I would like to see if it works. (Be kind it is my birthday.

 In lieu of a translation for outstripp’s Thai birthday message. (I think it’s Thai.)

    Thanks, DocJay.

    Sorry, I didn’t explain what a Nexus 7 is. It is a 7 inch tablet computer. It is half price of an iPad and runs on Android. We are probably about the same age so we can both agree that some of this new stuff is amazing. Dick Tracy did not have it this good.

    If you can join an audio meet-up in the near future.  

    DocJay: I’ve been scared of that phone since a Nexus 6 jumped ship from an off world colony and we had to call in a blade runner. Happy birthday cowboy! Enjoy the phone. · 0 minutes ago

    Flownover, A picture is worth a thousand words. I have to admit that typing was easier on the iPhone.

    Get in line,  DocJay normally beat us to the punch line.  I think he has his patients helping him type during the examinations.

    CJ,

    It is not the patients it is the guy in the white coat. Why do you think you have to wait so long at the doctors office?

    Oops, I forgot DocJay told me not to tell. Well, it is just you so it should be okay.

    Thanks for explaining what a Nexus 7 is; we technophobes were in the dark. Happy Birthday, TC, we’ll talk soon.

    Ditto to DocJay, join an AMU when you can.

    That’s easy for you to say.

    To be honest these translations are a hoot.

    Here is a machine translation of what was written.

    Happy Birthday to my funny friend Thank you for our giving pleasure and tears. For us to laugh until we cry It has delightful the 1st but it isn’t involved in the trouble.

    I am sure that is a bad translation since the original was even more confusing. (Just kidding Joan.)

    Nice…are you posting using the full site?  I have a Galaxy Nexus — “Nexus” designates hardware that runs pure Android — but haven’t stepped up to the tablet form.  I use the mobile site, which can be a little squirrelly.

  15. 10 cents

    Is that the phone? Which version of Android? I thought Nexus was the Google brand Android hardware. Nexus 7 is made by ASUS. Nexus 10 is made by Samsung.

    I have not tried it on the mobile site yet. I did notice that Firefox gave me a better text box than Chrome. But typing seems to jump around on me. Chrome seems to be better for typing.  Can’t tell if the typing problem is the Nexus interface, browser, or Ricochet yet.

    6, 2 and even; over and out. Joan’s post in Japanese was easier to decipher.
