With the success of smaller tablets like Apple’s iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7, it was only a matter of time before Samsung brought out a new model to take on the competition. Positioned between it’s Galaxy Note 2 “phablet” and the full-sized Galaxy Note 10.1, the new Galaxy Note 8.0 is coming soon to Best Buy stores. Featuring the innovative S Pen, a range of built-in apps including Peel’s “Smart Remote” for TV control and running Android 4.1 (Jellybean), the Galaxy Note 8.0 is bound to heat up the battle in the hot, 8-inch tablet market.
Today, a behemoth was reborn. The Samsung Note II is the newest contender in the mobile device world and it is making waves. The Note II is the result of a marriage between a smartphone and a tablet. As of late, Samsung has been developing products that are legitimate contenders to other dominant mobile device manufacturers (cough, cough…Apple). Let’s take a moment to compare the two.
I’ll start off with the big boy. The Note II’s sheer size is its defining characteristic. With a 5.5 inch screen, even a person suffering from the most extreme case of sausage fingers will find this phone a little on the large side. Despite this, there are some definite benefits to having a phone this size. Since it gives you all the functionality of a tablet with the portability of a cell phone, you get the best of both worlds.
If you’re looking for something to pull you out of that turkey coma after Thanksgiving dinner this yeawhy not bring out that tablet for some family fun. Whether an Andriod or Apple user, hundreds of Apps are at your fingertips breathing new life into classic board games, bringing them alive digitally.
As summer winds down you may be worried about getting your children back into listening and learning mode. With that in mind, it just might be time to ease their brains back into school mode. Why not pull out the Android tablet and have some fun with my top picks for education apps on Android?

Many would argue that when camping, you must leave technology behind you. But, I say…why deny yourself of the things that bring you pleasure? I just returned from a weeklong camping trip. And while I disconnected for the most part, you could still catch me soaking up the rays by the lake while I was checking my Samsung Galaxy SIII from time to time. Last summer I tried a weekend away at a campsite with friends without my tablet and smartphone and felt naked the entire time. One can commune with nature and appreciate its simplicity and beauty with their smartphone in hand – trust me I’ve proven it.
There’s nothing more mouthwatering then the savory smells from your neighbour’s BBQ. Those smoky aromas wafting over into your yard are usually all it takes for you to dust off your own BBQ and spark up the grill. Sadly for those of us whose grilling skills are not at par, our neighbour’s cuisine seems just that much more delectable. What we hope to be a delicious dish can easily become a charred, tough piece of meat that ends up smoking out everyone on the block. Humph.
