Crappy Acer A100 tablet

My Acer tablet a100 is so unstable . It is almost unusable. The touch screen is hyper sensitive. Which makes it a pain to try to read anything with it.Imagine trying to scroll a page and having it zoom in and out or turning the page. I have had to reset it twice now. Clearing everything in it and putting it back to factory default. The good thing is Google reinstalled all the apps ( except Angry birds for some reason). The camera is useless. The pictures are awful. my phone takes better pictures. One positive thing I can say about Acer was that the phone support was good.

New Book

I picked up another book to learn Java specifically. " Java all -in-one for dummies" by Doug Lowe. So far it seems promising. It's a rather thick book ( 9 books in 1) . More of a reference book but I am hoping I get a better understanding of threading.

No Direct help

I have been asking for help on this problem I have been having, here and on a forum. I have been told to read up more on threading and handling. Well gee  thanks , so I should do what I have been doing  and figure it out myself . Such a great help  explaining what I did wrong with the code! Why have a forum for questions if you are going to tell me to Google for the answer ( which  I have been trying to do)? I need an example of what the app should look like.
