Today’s Technology is Truly Amazing! 10 Years Ago We didn’t Even Have Smartphones or Tablets, Now I Can Run A Web Site On One!

Economy_Technology_02_Think about that folks. Here I sit posting this new article, from a remote location, onto an 8 Inch Tablet (the site is running on the Asus today), sitting at my house, via wireless and the Internet.

I have a wireless keyboard and mouse and when I get home I will move the site back over to this Dragon Touch X10 that it is being written from.

I remember being amazed at dual core processors, with big heatsinks and fans, inside a PC. Now we have quad core or octa-core processors than can handle almost anything you can dish out.

The displays are clear and crisp, the response time incredible and there are no more fans or heatsinks!

I know that we all take all this for granted, but just take a minute and think back to 2005, when there were no iPhones, no Androids, no tablets and laptops had a battery that weighed 3 lbs and a run time of maybe 2 – 3 hrs on a battery.

Life is really good now folks!

If you have a tablet or 2 in 1 you want tested, then contact Tim!

testlab1I try to test the heck out of every product I can get my hands on. Of course my budget is rather limited and although I love testing the latest tech stuff, I certainly can’t purchase all of it.

But if you happen to want to see a product tested and pushed to it’s limits then feel free to contact me and I will be happy to test out the product, push its limits and write an honest review and of course return it to you.

If you are a registered user here and have any suggestions, please let me know what I should be trying out and I will do my best to contact the manufacturer and see if I can get my hands on one.

Or if you have a product that you would like to write about, feel free to post it right here on the site. The best articles will eventually end up over on the tablets.yourfreewordpress.com server.

Maybe it is just me…but the Asus Z580CA runs KSWeb about 10% faster than the Dragon Touch!

7489-13333-Intel-ARM-The-all-time-warObviously the Asus Tablet has an advantage of having a 2.3GHz CPU versus a 1.83GHz CPU, but on the other hand, the Dragon Touch X10 has 8 cores and does some functions such as video editing extremely fast, and the Asus has only a quad core.

Obviously cores are not the be all, end all of speed since the instruction sets on an ARM based processor are completely different from an Intel based processor.

But The Asus does run this particular app a bit faster than the Dragon Touch and no it’s not just me, it is simply a huge noticeable difference in response time. Of course there is the wireless ac, (422 mbps),connect versus the wireless n,(150mbps), connect. Let’s also not forget 4gb ram versus 1 gb ram.  I’ll let the tech geeks sort out the why’s, but I sure love my Asus almost as much as my Dragon Touch X10!

It’s Saturday and today the Asus Z580CA Will be Your Server!

pots-logoOnce again there will be a shift over to the Asus based tablet server today! It does have a lot more ram and I have no doubt that it will function fine all day.

Now how exactly will you know when the switch happens? Just look at that the header image or check the “About” page. It is usually obvious…unless you happen to be brain dead.

Now in theory, I am scheduling this post for tomorrow morning, so the procedure is as follows.

  • write this  post
  • schedule post
  • run backup
  • update the Asus server from backup
  • switch over in the morning, post will happen around 10:30am

It’s so easy a caveman could do it. Incidentally this post is being written on my shiny new Asus X553SA.  It’s a great notebook but I rarely use it because of my Dragon Touch/Asus tablets.

Over a Month Now With The BLU Studio Energy 2 Phone and the Battery is still Great! (video)

Studio Energy 2
Studio Energy 2

Not too much to say here folks except that I can now snicker at the folks with those super thin and extremely expensive phones. To tell the truth I can’t even imagine why anyone would waste the money on those “flagship” phones. Sure there are a few cool features, but nothing you can’t do with a tablet. It’s a phone folks, first and foremost and it can do many chores you possibly need, but it is still a phone!

The BLU Studio Energy 2 does what it is supposed to do, has a brilliant bright  Super AMOLED display and the battery is still lasting forever.

It does not last as long as the first week or two that I owned it, but I have progressively begun to use it more and more because I finally am free of the boat anchor known as “charging”. It still works for at least 3 days of hard use.

So below is another short, pointless video, pointing out how great the battery life is.
