Submission + - App Compatibility with older tablets? 1

mandark1967 writes: Just wondering how many of you are experiencing application compatibility problems on older tablets. I use a 2nd gen version of the Asus Transformer (TF-701) mainly for reading, music, some light surfing. It's one of the more recognizable/established tablet makers so I thought I would upgrade the apps to newer versions since they supposedly have more/better features.

The latest versions of the Kindle and Google Books apps work "oddly" on my tablet. In Google Play Books, half the pages in a book fail to show up until I remove the download, re-download it, then scroll back and forth through the pages. The newer version of Kindle crash more often than I can count and half the links on the Kindle store just flat out don't work. I would like to use the newer versions but don't want to spring $600 for a new tablet. Thoughts?

for personal use, I still access many of my generic "CompUSA" branded CDRs from 1997 that read just fine and I have many others from different manufacturers that are still working fine.

At work, I create several CDs per week and I've never encountered problems with them after 4+years of use.

Concur on the case.

I lived with the OEM fans for 2 days then sunk $219 into the Noctuas (~$22 per fan at the time and I got a total of 10) and now the thing is whisper quiet, even with 8 fans going.

Also, The hot-swap drive bay door had a hinge pin break off and, when I initially contacted them about a replacement, they wanted to sell me the whole front panel for $175!!!

Have never been "happy" with the case but it does do its job so I haven't replaced it yet.
