Hey, look at the tweet, woot.
Thanks to (Mark @) Box.net for that fantastic news, I had a few mates say… “it’s a scam” but I laughed, can’t see that myself, after all, why would those smart buggers at box.net shoot themselves in the foot like that?
They did it for great publicity, not bad publicity, of course, it’s worked!
Seems twitter is not so useless after all!
That ONE tweet makes the whole few years Iv’e been on there worthwhile.
It certainly made my day/week/month getting that tweet.
A Samsung galaxy tab
I am looking forward to getting this prize and seeing what I can do with it, I do have a few ideas and also what I said in the tweet that won it, as seen in the tweet you see here… one other thing I can enjoy is ebooks, as good as a kindle really, (like kindles? look at the sidebar!) >> – as you can do more with it, I read alot, so this will be great at times when I am not doing anything, on the bus for example.
So, once I have it…
… I will do a review of it here, and depending on the set up, IE I imagine (fingers crossed) I get a box.net account loaded onto it too, which will be great for the all important files I can share with it, photos etc I can then do a double review… one of the product and one of what is loaded on there I find useful.
I have the free box.net account already I am sure. I will share my experience with box.net’s great tools, I think it’s something I should have used before really but never had the chance to dive into it, that will change.
What is Box.net? A file storage and sharing set up, it could even be used for FTP, which is what you use to upload files to a website etc. Ideal for the blogs if needed.
Cloud storage as it’s called, IE nothing needs to be stored on your pc / lappy, which means you can access it on ANY device you use, a friends lappy for example, just log in and use, one good thing is you can use it for big files, sometimes files can be to big for email say, so you upload it to Box.net and share the link, ideal.
Obviously there are limits with the free accounts, which is worth having, but should you need more, or unlimited even then that is possible.
Hearing good things about android and the many apps it has, I can utilise my google account on that so that will be handy, I am sure my amazing youngest son will also enjoy playing any games he finds on that, he just got a samsung android phone for his birthday, so I’m sure he already has a few in mind, to be honest when I saw that tweet, I thought it was a phone, so to see what the tab really was just excited me more. A double woot if ya like!
I am sure some of you use android apps and may have some ideas for me?
