For Shoot Me you'll need rooted device.
I use one that's simply called screenshot. Works well enough.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I personally like Android for my Web surfing experience although I can't for the life of me understand why anyone wants an additional data plan (3G tablets) when you just get a wifi tablet and connect to your phone wifi or any available public wifi. I find that since acquiring a tablet that I spend about 80% of my time on the tablet instead of my laptop or desktop....don't get me wrong, for real hardcore work I use a desktop or laptop but most of my web time is content consumption which is where the tablet shines.

I'm currently running a Rooted and Mod'ed Viewsonic G tablet $339 @ tigerdirect and can tell you that once it is rooted and you install a custom ROM (available from XDA-developers free of charge (Running TnT-lite 5.0.1)) this is one of the very best tablets on the market. runs circles around the ipad on performance and even bests the Xoom tablet in most performance metrics. Depending on the custom ROM (and kernel mods)you can expect between 2050 and 2750 on Quadrant.

For people who are willing and able to modify their electronics which I assume would include most of us here at Seven Forums, Android offers far more fun and tweaking than any other platform and as for tablets......iOS may currently own the market but Android is coming up fast. It already has the crown on phones in the US. Don't let anyone tell you that 2.2 Froyo is unsuitable for tablets....that's a lot of propaganda. I would however say that 2.2 should really be the base level for fully functional tablets while 2.1 works well for readers. 3.0 Honeycomb is good but still needs work despite all the Xoom commercials to the contrary.

I'm running FF mobile as a test browser on my tablet but one of the biggest down sides to FF on Android it that it does not support Flash yet, but since it is still in Alpha status this is not all that surprising.

There is a lot of room in the consumer market for tablets and we are just seeing the beginning of a wholesale change in the way people compute....Tablets are the future. Nvidia will release a quad-core for tablets later this year and by adding a keyboard and mouse to your tablet you can effectively have a desktop/laptop replacement.....don't get me wrong we are not there yet but neither was windows 95 when it came out, good things come with time.

CyanogenMod ROMs are good ROMs. Though for Desire Gingerbread ROMs I find Amethyst is just that bit faster as it's a lot lighter. ~50mb vs ~80mb.

Also got the CPU at 1.2GHz, with SetCPU set to "interactive", so when the phone is idle, it sits at like 200MHz, which helps battery. When I use the phone it's at 1.2GHz. I did have it set to "ondemand", which was great with battery, too, but found in some cases it was a bit jerky, like turning the screen back on and trying to move desktops could be a bit jerky as the clockspeed would sit pretty low still.

Does running an Android emulator bring Android-type security risks?
There are a number of Android apps (Google Play-sourced only), mainly photo and video-related, which I like a lot, although I don't really like using a tablet. I've researched a bit into Android emulators which run on Windows 7 e.g. here 6 best Android emulators for PC | Android Authority and...

Anyone use one of these cables / adaptors? My impression compatibility issues are with the android versions not so much the phone model. I have a galaxy ace w/4.3.
