It would make a GREAT organizing gift for my Mom

From Julie on September 15, 2011 :: 1:01 pm

My Mom LOVES to cook and has a million paper recipes and 1/2 million scanned into the computer. An Iconia Tab A100 would be the perfect size to have in the kitchen to use instead of having to manually sort through volumes of index cards and it would also save time going back and forth from the kitchen to the computer room to remember the ingredients list.

Its size is also more reader-friendly than the 3 x 5” cards- perfect for her situation smile

Acer Tablet

From Barbara Lawson on September 15, 2011 :: 1:38 pm

The touch screen and adroid OS are what appeals to me about this tablet.  I would use the tablet to do research on the network about different subjects that interest me.  A recent topic I explored was women warriors in history and when did the concept of women only in the home occur.

So… it would be fun to use.

Acer-Oh...the possibilities!

From Cathy on September 15, 2011 :: 1:45 pm

The first thing that comes to mind on how I would use it, would be to get it in my 15 year old son’s classroom.  He is a person with Autism, and if he could share the tablet with classmates, it would help him to be more social, as well as help him with his education.

I would use this for so many things both personal and in my job.  I’m a designer and do a lot of animation… printed storyboards don’t do justice to the colors and animation meant to be seen on a screen.  This would be the ideal way to display presentations.  Beyond that… my photos, games, books and anything other visual items would be at a size that my older eyes could see more easily.  I don’t use my phone to watch movies, but would do so with the Acer tablet.  Thanks Techlicious!

So many uses... So little time...

From nancy on September 15, 2011 :: 1:50 pm

I know an awful lot of seniors who really struggle with computing and I’m in a pretty big city.  I’ve often thought if they could just use a tablet instead of a full tilt computer to do their email and look things up on the web, their lives would be so much simpler and they would not feel so discouraged by computing.  I would loan it to one senior friend after another so they could try it out before buying a tablet, and also take it to some lunchtime meetings at senior centers so lots of people could see how tablets work.  I volunteer at a lifetime learning center so I could probably introduce several hundred seniors each year to tablet computing.

Grandma on the Go

From Ellie on September 15, 2011 :: 1:52 pm

I’m a working grandma despite advancing age. I’ve tried to stay up to date with technology and do fairly well, but can’t afford a smartphone. This tablet would be wonderful to help me stay connected to grandchildren, to read, to have on the go access to everything and everyone!

Win 1 of 10 Acer Iconia Tab A100 Tablets!

From Dana on September 15, 2011 :: 2:01 pm

I would use this for work and personal use. I have a part in running two businesses and I need this! I’ve been shopping around to get one, but the funds just aren’t there at the moment. I do alot of research and this would come in handy to me simply for that reason. I always carry my laptop around but it is just too big. This is the perfect size for what I need. Please, please, please send me one! I could use it for the camera alone since I always carry one in my purse. The wi-fi capabilities are great, we travel alot and could use it for directions.

"How would you use your new Acer Iconia tablet?"

From Gina on September 15, 2011 :: 2:12 pm

The Acer Iconia would be a great addition to my travel bag, and I could leave my laptop at home. As a cycling and triathlon coach, I’m on the road a lot. From following up with my athletes, keeping up with my studies, and staying in touch with family and friends, an Iconia would make both my work and personal life easier.

Need to update my toys!

From William Hutsell on September 15, 2011 :: 2:14 pm

I don’t have a smart phone or any tablets. My wife has a Ipod Touch. But at our age it’s a little to small. When we go someplace we always take our little eee computer. It’s a little out of date and slow. Would love to have something that is up-to-date and we both could use.

Loving Technology

From AFR on September 15, 2011 :: 2:21 pm

I would love the tablet just as I am loving all the new technology that has and is evolving constantly. With our crazy stressful lives, I embrace these products as an opportunity to use “down” times throughout the day productively.  And the fact that these products are getting smaller and lighter is a plus.

this Acer tablet on the GO and it is a BIG competitor to the iPad2.

Helping Others Especially During Emergencies

From F Haas on September 15, 2011 :: 2:33 pm

The real beauty of the new tab and tablet devices being produced is their extraordinary utility in Disaster Response efforts. I am a volunteer with the American Red Cross. As a Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteer, I respond when families are burned out of their homes and need immediate assistance with shelter, clothing and food.
 
When I arrive on the fireground and am introduced to the family, a process begins where we assess the damage to the home(s) and determine the needs of the family (families) affected. The Red Cross can provide a small emergency fund which can pay for several nights accommodations in a local hotel, some replacement clothing and food for several days. With this type of assistance there is a collection of forms to fill out and data that needs to be organized.

For decades, the Red Cross has used an evolving collection of paper forms to provide these services. In this modern age, Red Cross is rapidly automating to speed the process and achieve higher levels of accuracy and standardization.

As a DAT volunteer, I use technology as much as possible to make it easier for me to serve clients quickly so they can begin their recovery and get on with their lives with less bureaucracy.

If I win one of the Acer Iconia Tab A100 Tablets, the device would create a new dimension of ease and efficiency for my volunteer work in the Red Cross.

Thank you!
