A New Lease of Life for My Tablet
January 4, 2017 3:37pm CST
When I first got my tablet three years ago, a Microsoft Surface RT, I used it a lot, for all sorts of things. Slowly it became heavy and slow, crowded with all that I was expecting from it. In spite of removing most of the things I could, it still was a reluctant participant in my online life. Enter my Mr Fix-it man, my son. He decided to revitalise the tablet, returning it to its original state. And now it's working well again. I have lost a few things I really didn't need, but that's okay. Also, some of the apps I more commonly used, have been updated since I first installed them, so now it's a bit like learning to use it all over again. But at least it now does the things I want it to do again. Thank heavens for technologically minded sons.

We would be lost without our son too. We just wait until he stops by for a visit and have him fix all that we cannot. He also towers over us, his height a gift from some relative back in the day, so we have him retrieve things we need that are out of our reach.

Hoorah for your son being able to give your old tablet new life. It does sometimes feel that just about the time we get comfortable with a piece of tech it seems like it becomes outdated. Glad you are able to continue using your tablet with its renewed vigor.

My tablet keeps telling me it may quit working for I have too much on it supposedly. I did buy an external disk hoping to transfer some things over to it, but haven't figured out how to do that yet. I may have to go into verizon to get their help and I may find that's not how it works anyway. I just eliminated a lot of the apps I downloaded which means that I need to do more on my desktop at home than while I'm away from home.
