In Pictures: 10 types of tablet users that drive us nuts

Tablet PCs are valuable devices that can simplify and enhance our lives. But they also bring out the worst in some people. Here's a list of 10 stereotypical tablet users that amuse, annoy and frustrate us to no end.

Mr. Ready for My (Tablet) Close Up

Mr. Ready for My (Tablet) Close Up, or MRMTC, uses his tablet to place video calls every chance he gets. It doesn't matter if MRMTC is walking around the city, sitting in the coffee shop or riding the train, if an opportunity to make a video call presents itself, he's all over it—even if a text message, email or regular old voice chat would be more appropriate or effective. If the person MRMTC is communicating with doesn't have a webcam or a device that supports video calls, MRMTC just turns on his tablet's front-facing camera to look at himself during a call. MRMTC can also frequently be heard asking people with awe, "Remember when we used to have to phone calls without video?"
