    Alright, so last week my Dad shows me this link of a tablet he bought for my Mom for $200. Specs looked okay, but not great, but I just said, yeah, looks alright, knowing that it was already there and returning it would be a hassle. My Mom calls me yesterday and wants me to look into it because she knows my Dad's penchant for being both cheap, and technologically inept.

    It's called the KomandoTab, by Kim Komando. From what I can tell she's some tech journalist who has a radio show and contributes to non-tech specific news outlets a lot. My problem is, I can find literally nothing about this tablet that doesn't come from her. I try Google, Bing, Yahoo, YouTube, CNet, BGR, and of course here but find nothing. Even the cheap-*** $50 junk tablets usually have a review somewhere.

    Furthermore, when I do watch her in-house fake tech blog videos, it looks like the tablet is just a cheap Chinese number with her name slapped on it. Problem is I can't substantiate that at all because I can't find any info on it.

    My Mom wants me to tell my Dad to return it because she doesn't like it, and I can't argue with her. For $50 more she could get something from a known commodity. But he's the sort of person I have to come at with hard data, so if anybody knows anything about it, I'd appreciate it.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what she's done to get that spot but she really doesn't know that much about tech. I once heard her recommend to a caller that they open up a laptop to see if the sensor under the keyboard had shifted because it wasn't displaying the characters they were typing when they had accidentally turned on the alternate keyboard. As for the Tab it seems really odd that there is such a vacuum around it considering her "obvious" tech knowledge. Maybe you can use that as an argument. Meanwhile if mom isn't happy with it that should be motivation enough for dad to return it, or you could offer to split the $50 difference with dad and pony up $25 of your own to help him see the light, and get mom something she will really like.
