Goodenough Hotel - Room 491
Slept in this morning because the alarm didn't go off because my tablet is not charging, so I turned it off overnight.
It is quite cool with a bit of a breeze blowing.
After breakfast we decided to walk down to the Samsung shop to have them check my tablet to see what is going on with the charging. It took about half an hour to get there and the shop was very modern and new with staff everywhere. We had an initial consultation about our problem, then we were passed to a guy who tried to work it out for us, then we were allocated one more person, who would decide whether or not we needed to give my tablet to a technician. The issue is that it is not charging AND the tablet and battery are about five years old, so I am wondering if I need a new battery.
He checked my cable and determined that it was not working. Well, that was a surprise because it is only five months old! I bought a new cable and am happy to try this until I get home and then look at perhaps buying a new tablet. We actually looked at the latest tablets and the Tab 5 seems the way to go, but it is interesting that different tablets are released in different countries, depending on what the Samsung market survey says.
We called in the Argyll Arms for lunch and then strolled around busy Oxford Street and Soho Square. I had a pint of cider that was included in my lunch deal. Wow! I could hardly walk a straight line after that!
Our legs are getting tired, so we called a cab and headed for our hotel.
