Three diferent tablet computers: a Motorola Xoom, a Blackberry Playbook and a nook Tablet....and yet online I see all these ads for the Google Nexus 7 tablet and I can't help but think 'I should buy one of those'.....

Is there a support group somewhere for people who feel a strange compulsion to buy electronic doodads for no apparent reason?

One of the reasons I don't like tablets...non-upgradable = disposable.

However, I (I mean my wife) own a Kindle Fire. Only reason I bought it was the price, $139. That took care of the disposable issue (not that $140 is that disposable). I can't see dumping $400+ into something that will last a year or two at most (iPad).

Don't let him send you the Playbook. It's an unusable mess.

Nonsense, it works fine, and after 8 months of nonstop use it hasn't crashed once....which can't be said for any other electronic device I have ever owned...

Oh, you have to get iPieta. It's pricey, but you get soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!

Jakub posted about something called the Stromata by St Clement--it's in iPieta.

Douay Rheims & Vulgate: separately, or line-by-line or side-by-side

Calendar: OF or EF, with links to the Gospel readings

Prayers: Lots

Then: Butler's Saints and another, by name or "type"
Catechisms: BC 1, 2, & 3 as well as Christian Doctrine, then in another category, St Thomas' Catechism and the Roman Catechism
Spiritual writings:
Intro to the Devout Life (Yay!!!)
Imitation of Christ
and many more (not Spiritual Combat, tho--don't know why?)

Councils before Trent
Trent
Vatican 1 & 2
The Summa Theologica

Papal Documents from Pius Sixth to Benedict

Haydock commentary & Catena Aurea --both linked to the Bible

And several Church Fathers




Other than owning it, I have no connection with them. I just think it is a totally fabulous resource!




(Plus I have a couple of download apps which allow me to download MP3 directly, without going through iTunes, which is a PITN)

I just downloaded iPieta yesterday to my iPhone. I don't have an iPad or any other tablet.

Also dl'd the RSV-CE Bible, VerseWise. I also have the Bible and a few other nice resources on my Kindle (the entry level Kindle).

Heard so many people trashing the Playbook but got one anyway. Probably one of the most underrated tablets ever! I don't understand the hate...

It's really very simply, Blackberries aren't 'hip', therefore it is hip to bash them. Actual truth and facts are completely irrelevant unfortunately.

A tablet you mean? If I didn't already have one, I would pick up a Google Nexus 7.

Thanks, I will have to download it. I am still figuring out the iPhone. I love how other iPhone users text bubbles are blue! Silly I know!
