Walt and I have a couple of Android tablets now — a Google Nexus 7 and an Acer Iconia A1-810. Each has its strong points and each has disadvantages compared to the other. I like them both. One of the best things about the smaller tablet, the Nexus, is that it can play live TV over our wifi connection.
Our satellite provider, CanalSat, makes that possible. All I have to do is put in my username and password and I can receive, live, the dozens of channels that we get in our satellite TV bouquet, or package. So now have a portable, battery-powered, wireless TV that I tune to TéléMatin for news, weather, interviews, and feature stories when I'm puttering in the kitchen in the morning.
