If, like me, you realised about a year ago that this whole ‘iPad’ malarkey wasn’t just a fad and that maybe technology was starting to get away from you, then you too may have rushed in a mild state of panic, to your nearest Tesco, in order to rectify the situation.
Obviously not to buy an actual iPad – that would have been mental. Have you seen how much they cost? No, the supermarket ‘own-brand’ equivalent is more than good enough. It’s a thrifty and savvy purchase.
Indeed, the Tesco Hudl revolutionised my life, with its Android ‘Jellybean’ operating system. Although calling something a ‘Jellybean’ operating system and then not providing any actual jellybeans was a bit of a let-down.
But this is not a review of an outdated tablet – there’s already a newer version of the Hudl for goodness sake. It comes in all different colours. Like ‘Ribena’ Purple and ‘Capri-Sun’ Orange (that’s hilarious if you’re based in the UK, but probably less funny if you’re not).
No this is a review of the Tesco Hudl replacement ‘Charge Board Port Socket Micro USB Port.’
Which is brilliant!
What isn’t brilliant is that the original ‘Charging Board Port Socket Micro USB Port’ broke so easily. Back then I didn’t even know what a ‘Charging Board Port Socket Micro USB Port’ was. I don’t use terminology like that in real life.
So to put it into the less technical language I was using at the time, ‘The Bit On The Tablet Where You Plug In The Charger’ broke. Whatever you call it, it was a problem. Without that bit working, I couldn’t charge the thing and without the requisite amount of ‘charge’ apparently these devices don’t work.
So for a brief time I had a broken Hudl.
This was not good because they aren’t as effective when they’re broken. Also I had spent a lot of time lording it over people who’d spent as four times more than me on so-called superior tablets.
“Mine does just as much as yours”, was the lie I would tell.
Obviously it didn’t do as much as theirs. A better point would have been:
“Mine does as much as I need it to, therefore I don’t need one like yours.”
Regardless, without any charge, it wasn’t even performing the most basic of functions.
But then I discovered that the bit you plug the charger into was called a ‘Charging Board Port Socket Micro USB Port’. Even better I found out that you can buy them really cheaply. And the best news of all was that any creature, high enough on the evolutionary ladder to have achieved opposable thumbs, could replace the ‘Charging Board Socket Micro USB Port’.
So I bought one and impressed my wife by appearing as though I had lots of technical ICT skills, when really I have none.
The Hudl now works. And the new Charging Board Socket Micro USB Port seems a touch more robust than the old one.
So buy the ‘Tesco Hudl Replacment Charge Board Port Socket Micro USB Port’ today.
You won’t regret it!
Unless you don’t own a broken supermarket brand tablet.
