Swimmer: It's likely overstating it a bit
to say the tablet will cease to exist in 2015. I'm
sure many companies will still release new devices
in the year, but its heyday is clearly over.
Always somewhat of an acquired taste, tablets
largely appealed to people who felt they needed some
kind of bridge between their cellphone and laptop -
or for people who wanted an e-reader that could do a
bit more than just display digital books. But with
the rise in larger smartphones (or phablets), such
as the Nexus 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4,
there is less of a need for a tablet and desire for
them has dropped. And so, over time, I see most of
the company's abandoning the form factor.

promises govt collaboration from Church By TEAM HERALD | 30 Dec,
Archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrão Monday promised the
government collaboration from the Church, “as far as
we are allowed by the circumstances and, above all,
by what we believe,” while addressing his audience
at the Annual Civic Reception at Archbishop’s House
Monday. He, however, pointed out that even as in Goa
there was appreciation from the government for the
role of the Church in education and health in other
parts of the country there were signs that were
causing grave concern, “particularly to the
minorities, and which threaten to break down the
fibre of our nation.”
After the stoppage of mining in September 2012,
Goa's economy could still pull through thanks to a
flourishing tourism industry. The industry, in fact,
touched a new high last season when it received

Russia. But with the drop in Russian tourists, as
also domestic tourists this month, the season that
touches its zenith at this time of the year has

retrenchment. A day before Christmas, the otherwise
