In theory, my recently-purchased tablet can do all of the above; photo
album and weather (Beijing - by default, but easily switched to Canberra)
are parts of the supplied package. And I have just downloaded a file
reader that will read my stored personal recipes.
The fly in the ointment is that my tablet's battery is small and runs
down quickly (in less than 2 hours of constant use or 48 hours of
hibernation). But there are better quality Android tablets and all of
them recognise Linux automatically (so I have been told!).
