After owning a hudl (an Andriod tablet made by Tesco) for a little while, I have found a few useful Apps. So here are some of the ones I've found to be quite good (they have all come from the Google play store):
A nice ePub reader, with good abilities for highlighting. So it's useful for study purposes.
Quite an impressive document editor for MS Office documents, especially considering it's free. This is what I often use when I'm taking notes.
C/C++ IDE (woo-hoo):
OK, you have to pay for this one, but it means I'm never too far away from a C compiler. This is the feature I always wanted on my iPad...
I'm still quite impressed by the hudl, and I use it often. I'm planning to post some more of my thoughts on the hudl another time, watch this space.
I like coffee. But I drink too much of it, so I've mainly switched to decaf at the moment. My objections to most decaffeinated coffees are 1) they don't taste the same, and 2) I'm worried that they're full of other chemicals left over from the process of removing the caffeine.
So I've been experimenting. Or rather, my wife has been experimenting and I have been the tester/victim. Actually, it's not been too bad, she has chosen wisely.
So far the winners are...
Ground coffee: Grumpy Mule Organic Sumatra
Instant coffee: Clipper Super Special Organic Decaf
Both are organic and fairtrade. Both use a water process to remove the caffeine, so no nasty chemicals. And both taste OK, IMHO (I think they're pretty nice actually).
Sometimes I mix them with a regular coffee to make a 50/50 blend, just to get a little caffeine. Just occasionally.
They are worth checking out, if you're looking for a nice cup of decaf.
