Greetings from Canberra
« on: January 04, 2013, 05:08:23 PM »
Hello and a Happy New Year to all.
Despite the revulsion that some on the forum feel towards Apple, I am forever grateful to Macintosh, with its mouse and ikons, in 1984 for getting me past the incomprehensible and archaic commands a person had to remember to get the MS-DOS C> prompt to do anything.
I moved from Apple to Windows in about 1994 when I needed to upgrade computers and the Apple to do the tasks I needed to do was going to cost me $7,000+ and I could buy a comparable Windows machine for $3,000+.
Now my smartphone has led me to Android and the Nexus.  It's a delight -- like a lttle puppy dog that can't wait to do what it thinks you want it to do.  Best fun I've had with a computer in a couple of decades.
 :D :D :D

Welcome and HNY as well. Glad you are excited about Android and your Nexus. Please take some time to look around and use the search function. There are many topics that have been thoroughly explored. If you have any questions that you can't find an answer to, feel free to fire away. Thanks for joining the family here.

Welcome to the forum kamai. I am thankful for the Mac Mouse, as well, but the real thanks goes to Steve Jobs, who stole the mouse from Xerox.

Welcome to the family kamai and Happy New Year to you too.

You mention in your introduction "Android phones", are you an Android phone user/owner or is the Nexus 7 your first introduction to Android?
