Comment Current Transformer User (Score 1) 274

I picked up the Asus Transformer when it first came out earlier this year, and I love it. It works great. I do disabled the touchpad and use a usb mouse however, and then touch the screen when needed. Since VMware has a View client for android, I can take my tablet with me when travelling and use only it. I no longer need a laptop to take. I can watch movies, etc. The downside - HDMI output. (I've read this is a problem with the current Tegra chip in the transformer) That the scaling on hdmi output is slightly off - the top and bottom of my output is cutoff on all my TVs. Granted, they are not expensive TVs that can be adjusted to compensate for that however. They battery life is great, and the Dock constantly keeps the tablet fully charged, so when you disconnect, it's full. It has been very responsive. I think this tablet will end up being the biggest (how big is another question) competition for the iPad. I'm glad I got this instead.

I don't mind that you used my post :) I took quite a while to find a church in my area that I fit well into. It's tough, because I have certain 'faults and failures' that I find myself going back to that I don't really want to do, but yet get discouraged when I see this in others. What I like about the Church my wife and I are at, is that the majority of everyone there, including the pastor, is very open about this process. (ie - there is a Men's group that meets that is all about pornography addiction, and they work as an accountability group for each other - this is because a lot of these men have found it hard to get away from viewing that material online, and are finding it is hard on their marriage because their wives feel that they aren't enough for thier husband). I like that this church is open about things like that - and not just saying "Porn is bad - don't look at it." and move on like it's all that needs to be said about it. What I realized when looking for a congregation to join, is that it is a lot like my marriage, but with a lot more people - you are trying to mesh multiple lives together to form a "family" of people that share the same beliefs and convictions, but everyone's is just a little different, or they have more or less emotional baggage than you.

I'm a Christian, and I'm a tech. (I don't use twitter - I don't see a point to it). I do however, understand that this is another way to let people know what your particular church is about - on the other hand, I think this can be really distracting for those in the congregation that are trying to listen to the message for the day. I heard about this last week on K-Love (National Christian radio station) and will be interesting to see how it works out. (I don't see this lasting long)
