back to article Christians get God-optimized 'Edifi' Android fondleslab

The tablet market is getting increasingly competitive these days, but an American company believes its offering may have a unique selling point: it's a fondleslab for the faithful. Dubbed the Edifi, the seven-inch device is billed as the first tablet computer designed specifically for Christians, and comes with streaming …

"......peak at inappropriate content."

That happened to me once.

I had to beat it with a mallet to get it down again.

Inappropriate content? So that's Lancet, New Scientist and all the works of Darwin banned then...

How many of those translations say Moses had iPads? If none, I think there is room for a new translation.

"Holiest tablet since Moses was gifted by a burning bush"

Although I don't think "gifted" is a word.

Re: "Oh Orgasmic!"

He's got this all wrong anyway. The burning bush was Moses' intro to the idea of getting the Israelites out of Egypt, not the "revelation" of the ten commandments - 5 of which were already well observed by Buddhists at points east of Sinai.

Re: A fondleslab for the hate filled bigot on the move.

So you regard all religious people as hate filled bigots?

Look in the mirror.

(this is from an athiest who is not bigotted against those who think otherwise.)

How exactly am I supposed to regard people that stand on street corners and tell me that I'm going to burn for an eternity in hell?

Apps

Is this being targeted at any particular church? Catholic Church for example, if so does it come with a "Choirboy" app?

Re: Apps

Yes, they come with the "Choirboy app" which is used in conjunction with the "Get out of Jail free" app and are also loaded with the "Lesbian Nun " book reader App.

Now I wonder why they are named "Fondle-Slabs" ?

Apple patent trolls will be on this....

...like a rash. Are those corners rounded? Are they (gasp)......icons? Guilty! Bring it on - Apple vs the Supreme Deity Himself. But which one is best? There's only one way to find out........ FIGHT!!!!

Oh but I already know the outcome - Apple fail because this particular iPad wannabe is clearly a LOT less cool than the iPad.

Price?

"Google has somewhat crippled their marketing plan by announcing the Nexus 7 tablet, which is more highly specced than anything else at the same price point"

Except this is $149, wasn't the 8GB Nexus 7 $199?

The main downpoint of this (aside from the crippled censored browser) seems to be still running Android 2.3, but price-wise, I don't think it's unreasonable that it has lower spec, when it's so much cheaper. And if it has microSD as someone pointed out, then if you want 16GB the price difference will be even greater (since the cost of an 8GB microSD card, or even 16GB or 32GB, is hardly anything).

Religion is designed to...

1. perpetuate itself - Go forth and multiply;

2. put the fear of god into people to...

3. make them do what you want them to do (otherwise they'll burn in hell);

4. play on peoples fear of the unknown, death, etc (foir the same purpose);

5. make money (especially in the US). "Praise the Lord and send us your money."

Scribal interpolations and dehydration

Clearly Exodus 34:28 and Deuteronomy 9:18 are scribal interpolations. Had the scribes who wrote those verses ever tried going without water for much more than a week (or two or three days in a hot desert land) they'd have suffered irreversible renal failure. Since Moses was a prophet, he would have foreseen this catastrophic result and brought many litres of water with him in jerry cans to survive.

The Christian Tablet

I have to ask, if it is intended for Christians WHY doe it need site blocking for inappropriate materials or content?

Were there really 15 commandments give to Moses but God had to block five of them?

I am so gonna go-to-Hell.........................
