One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Baps' Samahan Burger in Kearny Mesa

One day I was craving burgers and not just your ordinary ones. And the first place that popped up is Baps. Baps is that burger joint formerly known as B Spot in Kearny Mesa/San Diego. They've got some awesome burgers and one of my favorites to say the least. They are also one of the messiest so prepare for that. I've tried just about every burger they have except for the Samahan Burger. So Samahan it is...

Baps' Samahan Burger in Kearny Mesa

What is the Samahan besides being an awesomely delicious burger? It's a burger that has a beef patty with cheese inside "Juicy Lucy", Asian pork, grilled mushroom, coleslaw, terriyaki sauce and a fried egg. YUM!!! A fried egg in its own right makes just about any burger more fantastic. SO GOOD!!! You can even see the melted cheese starting to ooze to the outside. I can't wait to have another one and this time around, with many napkins around me at my disposal. Yeah, it's that messy.

Belkin Verve Folio Stand for Galaxy Tab

After the purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, I immediately purchased the first available case. And that happens to be the Belkin Verve Folio Stand. I needed a case that has to have one particular job. It's to basically protect my investment and do it well since the tablet will be used on the go. Other than that, I was open to any type of case as I wasn't too picky. Enough talk, here are some photos of the product...

I'm sure there are other cases out there that are much better. At the time of purchase, I didn't have many options. Thinking back, I don't think I had any option. The Galaxy Tab was so new that there just weren't many cases. But fortunately, the Belkin Verve Folio Stand fulfills my needs for protection during transport. As I tend to shove it into my backpack with other stuff in it. After a few months of owning the case and the tablet, I'm also rougher with it than when I first got it. So far, it's doing a fine job doing it what I needed it to do.

The photos above show how the case opens up. The photos also show it without the tablet. Instead, it has the original printed paper of the home screen of the tablet. The next set of photos below show the thickness of the case with the tablet on top it and the last with the tablet in it. The Belkin Verve Folio Stand has some thickness to it. Some may have a problem with that, but I actually didn't mind at all. I've put so many hours with this case in my hands that I've gotten real used to it and the thickness. When I remove the tablet from the case, you only now realize how thin the Samsung Galaxy Tab really is. Which nice to do every once and awhile...

What else can I say? It protects my investment, which is the most important thing I wanted in a case. And it does it well. What more can I ask for?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB Tablet

I've been using the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Honeycomb tablet and Wi-Fi for a few months now and I have to say that I love this damn machine. At first when I was looking into buying my first tablet, I wasn't a big fan of the sticker price that these types of tablets demanded in general. I was one of those people who said to themselves, "how the fuck am I going to use this thing?" Well, at least use it and get my moneys worth of use that is. I always felt tablets in general should be in the three hundred dollar range. And I'm glad to report that I feel that I got my moneys worth and then some...

I really didn't create this post as a review. I'm not very good at that. Since it's been out for a few months, there are plenty of reviews out there that can describe and articulate it better than I can. A lot better. This is more of a show and tell/open box review through photos and maybe a few comments here and there. From the photos above, you can see the box and as you open it, the tablet sits atop it. Besides the tablet and papers, it comes with the headset, USB cable and outlet plug...

The above images show a shot of the front and back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The screen is amazing to the say the least. I have plenty of experience on the iPad 2 and other tablets like the Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer. The Galaxy Tab has the best screen out there at the moment. The images and text are much crisper and smooth to be honest. That's not to say that the others are bad alternatives. I also happen to like how this particular tablet feels in the hand. It feels very secure without any hard edges digging into your hands during long periods of hand use...

Here's a photo of the charging port...

My finger is pointing to the tablets speaker. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has two of these small speakers located on both sides. Don't let the size fool you. They're plenty loud for the average user. And clean sounding. At least to my average ears...

Then you got the power button on the right and the volume rocker on the left. I also prefer the design of these buttons over the Apple iPad 2. I find myself always hitting the volume button on the iPad by accident. I do hit the volume button on the Tab also, by just not nearly the amount as I do on the iPad...

Nothing too special, but here's the headset port/plug....

And then here's the rear camera. I'll be honest; I don't use the camera much at all on the Tab. I have only used it to test it out and haven't touched it since. I don't have much use for it...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB Tablet

All in all, I recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to any one. I'm very happy with my choice. I'm actually considering buying the new smaller Galaxy tablet. The current one I have now is perfect for the home and serious web browsing and stuff like that, but I'd want a smaller one when I'm out and on the go. Well, that's it. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
