Thinking outside the screen: 6 things you aren't doing with your tablet
The tablet PC has finally arrived. While this formerly science fiction-seeming device has had numerous failed iterations over the past couple of decades, it's finally a viable way to do a lot of things. Everybody watches movies and plays games on their tablets, but there are other things you may never have even thought of doing. Tablet PCs are just coming into their own now. As time goes on, there are bound to be a lot of new and interesting things to do with these ultra-portable computing wonders. Here are 6 things that you probably aren't using your tablet for, though you easily could!

No.1

You need a built-in IR port in your tablet pc for that and only but a few devices have IR ports (Sony/Xperia Tablets for example). Or Bluetooth/Wifi in your other devices for that to work.

Some cable companies have an app you can download so you can use you're smartphone or tablet as a remote.

No.2 is useful if you're planning to explore a location (for food, movies, shopping, etc) and figuring out the best commute routes or just trying something different.
