Couch surfing

Posted by andrea tomkins in: technical stuff

One of the things i haven’t done with my new Toshiba Tablet (which was gifted to me by Toshiba Canada) is tap out a blog post. So here I am, on the couch, with Piper on one side and a coffee on the other. Amazingly enough my spazzy fingers are behaving themselves and not creating typo-related havoc on the touch keyboard. The ability to write blog posts in places other than my desk appeals to me greatly. I’m especially keen on multimedia applications.

I can even shoot a quick video with this thing, and as long as I have WiFi access, can upload it right away. Let’s pretend that this video clip is breaking news, and not just a dog eating a cookie.

Ah, look at that. I just realized that I can’t easily select text to create a hyperlink, but that might be the fault of the version of WordPress I’m running. Hmm. I think I need to spend more time with this thing.

I will say this however, the Tablet is excellent for browsing Pinterest. :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
