All the cool kids are buying tablets these days. Not the kind of tablets that I had as a kid, of course, which required a pencil to scribble on. I went through scores of those growing up, but was never "cool." Anyway, after a friend upgraded to a new Google Nexus 7 tablet, he offered to sell me his "craptastic" (his word) Velocity Micro Cruz T103 7" tablet for a song. I borrowed it for an evening and put it through its paces to see how well it worked. I had pretty low requirements for a tablet, but this tablet failed to clear even that bar.
