I have contacted the following with the email pasted below and I am kidding you not about what I have starred, Lol.

Google in writing, PC World, Knowhow, nVidia & EVGA by email.


Dear Sirs


Myself, BSc Applied Computing, and two parents are currently furious with the above device and I personally would like some answers!

1 One had to be returned because it failed to charge up?! It was exchanged!

2 A second one started to refuse being charged up and I took this back to PC World who curiously starred it had to be sent off. In the meantime the THIRD ONE, my one, had started to play up.

3 Then I was informed by the patents who requested I the two up as Christmas presents for their two daughters then tell me that the one given to me as an exchange is ALSO NOT CHARGING UP!! M

4 Mine has problems as it makes the keyboard disappear and refuses to come back. The lasso and palm detection buttons go missing for days on end and I DO mean that literally. A couple of days back whole I was rushed and panicking trying to take a photo of a page in a book for a drug called Sodium oxybate which is used for my DISABILITY the tablet told me I had no memory and refused to take a picture and stated that my sdcard was not mounted?! Weird because not only was it mounted but it had 16GB of free memory while the internal memory has 6GB?!

It also loses loads of text in a number of different text based apps  and blogger apps and the swype keyboard is so atrocious I could get a bunch of five year olds to code something better!!

I have had to go back and forth in pain because of my disability and I am furious that with all the British taxes being paid out for governing bodies, ombudsman and all these rules that all I have manage to purchase in the last twelve months is shoddy crap and used and refurbished items retailers and mail order catalogues in the UK have been selling them as new when the reality is they are returned garbage flown over from the USA!

A shame for PC World that I have a series of BLOGS!!!

Also writing emails is absolutely atrocious and for some bizarre reason that is beyond me it suddenly decided to move your cursor back up a paragraph and places it mid sentence?! Place it back to where it was after clearing up the mess it created and it will do it AGAIN?!?!

Also I have no idea where the bloody English Dictionary was sourced from but it certainly was not ENGLAND!!

I would like to know what in the hell is going on if you do not mind?!

Well I just did an Antutu Benchmark test on my Advent Tegra Note 7 Tablet.

Infuriating this was because I was looking for a diagnostic tool because I am suddenly getting low memory messages and apps have been going missing too?!

The low memory message came up while playing GT Racing 2 which itself is so buggy that I personally would be embarrassed if I responsible for releasing this! It has some serious issues, it has been dropping sound on the HDMI connection everyone a bloody advert comes up but did not before it downloaded what looked like the whole game which is the second time this had happened as it went umm missing, lol.

After skating the game for playability and their claims about realistic physics I discovered today that it previously was not installing and of the upgrades I PURCHASED for my car. I went from getting no higher than seventh yesterday to finishing country miles ahead of everyone else in every race?! Idiots.

On top of this I was finishing the race in one Payton but then the game would drop me down several positions and I thought I was losing my marbles fit several hours?! Lol!

As for the memory issues this did not happen before but the tablet refused to even take a bloody photo earlier today!! Then while playing GT Racing I Keir getting a low memory warning?!

What got me earlier is it said I had low memory and memory not mounted and refused to take a picture! But in fact the Sandisk Ultra 32GB WAS MOUNTED and had 16GB of free memory!! The internal memory had 6GB free too so what the feck Android was on about I have no bloody idea?!

It gets worse I am afraid!

Only yesterday I took the third of three of these devices back to PC World because the battery was playing up and not charging. Before taking it to PC World I could not get it to turn on at all!!

The owners sister has already had hers replaced which I did for her and that one refused to charge too?! But this latest one had to be sent off and I was not pleased with that despite the fact it was not mine. So I have sent an email to nVidia who designed it and I have sent a letter to Google. The one to Google was over Android problems asking with Blogger and AdSense, lol. Oh and YouTube as I certainly feel like I am being screwed!!

However despite the unfortunate faults it scored higher than anything else on Antutu and I will include a screen shot of the results...

I think I am going to walk away from Google's Android Operating System. It just seems to be slowly becoming a horrible place to be!

As some of you know I bought three Advent Tegra Note 7 Tablet PC Computers. One for me and two on behalf of friends as presents for their two girls. Well I already had to replace one of the two given for a new one which were given out as Christmas presents and now I have the second one in my home and I will be exchanging it when I return it tomorrow?!

Starting to wonder now when my one will give up the ghost?!

But regardless of this nor peering on my mind I am having other issues!

Google Play has gone from being interesting and exciting to browse to a pain in the arse I really am getting more and more feed up with using!!!

First of all there are an absolute myriad of shit on their and I do mean shit! I have list count of the number of things I have downloaded that do not work, nothing like their description and died not do what it says on the tin!! Then there are the fecking games that are just plain greedy and preying on that gaming urge that is a primary instinct in us all! In app purchases is what I am getting at!

That is of course after all the utter shite you click on because the picture looks cool, mainly suggesting a first person shooter with console class graphics, only to see the screenshots and think ' what the FECK is this shit, it looks like the old days of 8 BIT gaming?!'

Of course yeah that is why I searched for something with an nVidia Tegra 4 processor so that I can play 1980s games and gear up the planet with all the wasted extra power?! Lol!.

I also got a an App Shifter and that is what it is actually called, unless your looking at it on Google Play then it's called something fecking else entirely. I moved a few dozen apps including some big games. Only lately I have been clicking in things and being told it is not installed?!

This happened with an app I bought, OfficeSuite Pro, because Quick Office is now crap because Google got ahold of it and I paid a tenner fit that too!! Only I have just realised that my documents in this app are NOT BEING SAVED TO GOOGLE DRIVE?!

For the love of a fecking GOD!!

Then tonight I realised that my new game I was playing of GT RACING 2 (real racing it states) had also give missing?! I then opened App Shifter only to click on SD Card apps to see just TWO!! TWENTY TWO would be closer!!

Then there is the game itself, ever since I bought something IN-APP things went downhill... FAST!!

I ended up with a Toyota GT85 II. Only straight away I was having difficulties and found that I had to drift to stand any chance of going around a bend and stating competitive with race leaders!! I thought that maybe some upgrades would since this. This was also because other cars were rounding bends perfectly level and without drifting! I ended up maxing the upgrades to the car without realising and things remained the same. Also despite being maxed out I was being offered upgrades before each race?!

Also I was seemingly spinning out each time someone touched me which was not happening to them and added to this they were never spinning out. Then there is the old positions remain the same syndrome within the race energy your the only one ever doing any overtaking or even being overtaken?!

Another common thing is never getting higher than 8th after several attempts on one track and then getting first in the next race at the first go?!

Some tracks feels as if my tyres are manufactured using ice while others not quite so bad. Maybe cardboard, lol.

The last updated, like the other two, have made absolutely no fecking difference to Android and added to this the swipe keyboard is still substituting words whereby you got it spot on but it offers you not only the WRONG WORD but often not even one that starts with the same letter?! You know the...letter...that... you... touched... on... first... which... you... would... not... make... a... mistake with!!!

If your going to scree up the coding at least get the wetting word that starts with the correct letter for Christ sakes?!

If I was Eric Schmidt and I had some Android OS as a business solution I would be crapping my pants right about now!!

So I am getting extremely feed up with Google and Android.

Only the alternatives are crap!

Sorry Apple I know you would like many to think that your system is great but that it's not doing well because the rest of the world is voting and infringing, but no!

I simply never realised just how bland the iOS was until I had a few weeks to mess around with one. Also I hate iTunes as it is also bland and on Windows it is good awful slow! Mac OS is much better as an OS to look at and use!

Maybe Jason Bradbury was not plugging Microsoft's Surface 2 dye to sponsorship?

But then where Google and Android have a problem with being far too laid back and open Microsoft are the polar opposite and doggedly sticking to their closed system which would not be that bad if not for preventing a number of other people coding browsers for their system!

My mate had the options of IE and UC?! No Safari, Dolphin, Chrome, Firefox or any others either.

So one choice is far too bland and boring added to way over expensive in Apple.

Another is far too awkward, butt ugly and closed system with not many apps or choices with Microsoft.

Lastly you have far too many choices, too unstable, far too many so issues and lazy or incompetent coding with Google.

Now what annoys me is that any one of these could read this and realise that they could alter their system to stand head and shoulders above the other two?!

However I will wager that they won't!

Or maybe one of the many others I have been hearing about will rise like a Phoenix from the flames and keep above the other two?!

If it is the latter paragraph I got they then do not just become the fourth arsewipe in a long list of arsewipes?! If it is greedy shareholders that come along then suddenly decide that they know better than the inventors... well get them to read this oust and I will tell them to shut the feck up and go back and crawl under the rich from whence they came!

In the meantime I can only hope that things improve and I suspect now that it just might be the big 'M' as they are already working to replace the travesty that was Windows 8, with Windows 9 of whatever it ends up being called?
