Google Nobody needs a tablet, but many people still want a tablet. This is still the core differentiator between a 'real' computer and a tablet. At least in The Netherlands, you can't function in society without a desktop or laptop connected to the internet, so people need a computer. A tablet, though? Hence, the most common thing people have told me when they played with my iPad 2 is this: I'd love to have a tablet, but not for hundreds of euros. Enter Google's Nexus 7, the first 'cheap' tablet that doesn't just validate Android as a tablet platform, but also gives the iPad a run for its money.

The new Firefox Beta (v 15) seems okay. Current stable (v 14) doesn't support basic stuff like fixed position in CSS, which makes it impossible to create good web apps with a native look & feel. The more people that uses browsers that doesn't support basic stuff like this (Opera Mobile for instance), the harder it is to be a web app/web site developer. You have use the user agent and browse-specific code, which shouldn't be necessary in 2012. Please don't use Firefox 14 for Android & Opera Mobile for Android.
