Another High End-Cheap Tech Video: This One Covers How I do Stuff At Work!

Tonight we have another video from your’s truly and it covers how I get stuff done at work. I actually did this for our dealership channel but added a small preface to explain why I am sharing it here and on my new YouTube Channel.

It is pretty basic and straight to the point. Bottom line is you can use older gear and get the job done and it will look alright!

There really isn’t a lot to explain here before the video, although it was all done on on my Zotac Ci323, supposedly inferior Nano-Box PC.

So let us get right to the video, because I am sure you are on pins and needles…..okay, probably not, but watch it and visit the Channel and look at the links to where I work and check them out also! You will also find them at the end of this post.

So without further rambling, here is the video!

This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: Totally Free Video and Image Editing Software That You Should Try!

If you want to edit images, let’s face it, most programs/apps out there have severe limitations, however, if you want to learn new things and actually expand your horizons the 2 programs I did a video on tonight might be your ticket!

No, they do not compete with top-tier software nor are they super slick, but they get the job done and that is what we concentrate on here.

The bonus is they run on older hardware like my Hi12 and the HiBook. You do not need the latest Intel Core i7-xxxx and 16 gb of RAM to run them.

The video below was shot on the Zotac Ci323 and edited on the same machine, yes an Intel N3150 quad core Celeron with 8GB RAM.

The programs or apps as we have now been trained to say, are the GIMP and OpenShot. Both are totally free and work well and can get the basics done and might even surprise many folks!

The Gimp is available at this link and Openshot can be found right here!

As usual, please like the video, subscribe to the channel, leave a comment!

That is all for now, hopefully this will post up properly at the time I have scheduled it for…automation is great, but one never knows,

Tim

Does Your Track Pad Suck? A Little Common Sense Such As Using A Cheap Wireless Mouse Is The Answer!

Whether you are using a Cheap Tech Notebook/Laptop or even a few of the High End devices available these days a crap track pad might be a royal pain in the butt.

However, for most of us a simple dirt cheap mouse might be the answer! The track pad itself was mostly designed for situations where you simply didn’t have access to a mouse or other pointing device. A mouse is also a superior pointing device on any larger tablet!

Personally I detest a track pad, unless I am somewhere where that is all I have at hand. But you can find a mouse that will solve most of your issues with a bad track pad for a few bucks. So do not let a reviewer turn you off to a laptop/notebook because the track pad sucks. Take it in context and imagine how rarely you might use this part of the device, especially if you have a handy wireless mouse  around.

All the above being said it is time for the video!

That is all I have for this evening,

Tim

After Literally Hours Of Playing About With Settings, I finally have Success Using OBS Studio on the Hi12 Tablet!

It took me virtually all night to get the OBS Studio, display capture software to function on both the HiBook and the Hi12 tablets! Primarily it was simply a matter of resetting the recording devices setting from the task bar in Win 10.

Who knew that these were set to about 5% from the factory? I always thought they just had crappy microphones!

So that being solved it was simply a matter of find a decent resolution for output that wouldn’t bring the processor to a grinding halt when writing back to disk. I settled on the only 720p output available with the better sampling rate and it appears to work well.

The entire video was shot on the Hi12 AND edited on it in OpenShot!

So here is a short video of the results!

As usual, please like the video, please share it and make damned sure to subscribe!

First Video Worth Sharing Today! The Dell XPS 15 2 in 1 Convertible!

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and is the unboxing and initial impressions. I have watched one other video on this device and it seems to have 1 minor flaw and that is battery life (but let us wait for confirmation).

However, it has a great display, touch screen panel and the usual Dell quality.  It is plenty powerful enough for your daily workload and has a lot of ports!

No it is not inexpensive, but it certainly isn’t overpriced as some other notebooks, with far fewer ports.

So let us get right to the video after I remind you to check out Andrew’s channel on YouTube and remember to like it and subscribe!

That is all for now,

Tim
