    Damn it, I would very selfishly much prefer he leave the old one in the hands of its new current much more attractive owners.

    The results of their actions have spawned hours of free entertainment for me.

    So...I propose (anybody but me, cuz I can't count and I get easily distracted :)) a fund, and a toast for dear Frank. May he never recover his Toshiba, and may GTers chip in to get him a new one. :)

    Bud lite for LIFE!

    I would gladly be in on this. It is great entertainment at any price. That said, recovering the tablet may prove to offer huge amounts of entertainment also. If recovered and if Frank has another tablet, I think it is pretty clear what we need to do with the recovered tablet...

    This idea is the best yet. Restore it back to original condition and create a generic dropbox account for it setting up nothing but the photo sync on it, and leave it on a bench somewhere. Then hope they don't notice the dropbox and give us countless more hours of retina burning entertainment.

    That being said, I would happily chip in to get this guy a new tablet.

    FWIW - I've never seen a thread like this not get locked down.

    Guess I misunderstood. Was going to ask what he was suffering from to see what kind of tablet he needed. Antibiotic, Nitroglycerin, Viagra..............
