Micro-USB to Full-size Adapter Has Arrived! Tablet/Phone Testing Results!

So today I finally received the Micro to Full Size USB adapter that I ordered off Amazon. So I began testing immediately with a few devices. I did not just test on the Dragon Touch X10 but also my Blu Studio X android phone and the Asus ME572C 7 inch tablet I own.

So far the results on the ME572C  are quite impressive! The  Logitech Optical plugin mouse works as does the Flash drive as does a cheap wireless mouse I recently purchased!

Next came my BLU Studio X phone…results, not one device worked, but not unexpected with a phone.

Now onto the Dragon Touch X10 Tablet. As the video shows all three devices work great! .all shot on the DTX10 built in screen recorder.

There is a new Dragon Touch X10 Tablet, but considering the specs it is just not worth the extra $10

61oSDuBYzgL._SL1000_The folks at Tablet Express are now selling the Dragon  Touch X10 via Amazon.com at a price of $129.  Same specs except for the screen size being 10 inch, not 10.6 and the OS being Android 5.1.

The upgrade to 5.1 sounds great, but losing a half inch screen space isn’t.

The specs could be wrong…. I have yet to contact the folks there about this. However it will hopefully fix the WiFi issues mine has. Those being that no matter how I set it up or adjust settings the WiFi will only stay on when plugged in or set to never sleep.

I never did get a response from the Tablet Express folks on the WiFi issue but I am certainly not buying the new one for no other reason than Android 5.1 and a smaller screen.

So the Dragon Touch X10 continues to amaze…

Considering the price and how well it works you may want to consider investing in a LogiTab, also known here as a DTX10/Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard and a mouse.

But the fact of the matter is that as I write this I am watching video, via the CBS App and taking screenshots, etcs. Did I mention that I have yet to kill the battery this evening after 4+ hours of use?

Find me another $160 combo of hardware can do this and I WILL buy it!

Not About the Dragon Touch, but rather the anatomy of a scam on Craigs List.

scammerSo I am selling my ancient Dell D610 laptop on Craigs List at a reasonable price and of course I ran into a possible scammer. I don’t have proof just yet but the pieces are all there.

The synopsis below is a summary, not exact quotes:

  • First Contact: I would like to come see the laptop but I won’t be off work until, blah, blah.. Let me know what a good time to see it is.
  • Second Contact after about 1 day: I am sorry for the delayed response, but I have been dealing with some issues. I would really like that laptop. 
  • Third Contact: “Oh my my Dad has passed away and I must go to a funeral. If you save the laptop for me I will send a cashiers check for $20 over the sale amount so you can save it for me, please just take the ad down” At this point it is just getting weird…
  • Fourth Contact: “Thanks for holding on,I am almost done with my Dad’s burial
    arrangement. this is to inform you that the payment is out for
    delivery  via FedEx courier service here is the tracking no. 665013808110
    in the amount of $1300. Once you have the check in hand, you are to
    have the check deposited (Check clears within 24 hrs)and withdraw
    the balance after deduct the money for your item and extra $50 and
    remaining fund sent to my  Mover via   Money gram, She will come for
    the pick up and also  I have some other item to be pick up at your
    location.
    Here is the Mover info Below;Name……….Davis Deborah
    Address…….38 cloudstone dr
    City…………..Santa Fe
    State…………NM
    Zip Code……87505I will be waiting to read from you with the below details, so that the
    mover can schedule a pick up.1.  Sender’s name and address.
    2.  Amount Sent after money gram charges.
    3.  Digit Control Number.”  You will notice that the info is vague and why would someone send me money just to transfer it elsewhere?At this point I had even lied a bit and indicated I did computer consulting for the FBI. That would be enough to raise flags with any American, so this indicates someone that just doesn’t know what those letters mean.
  • Fifth Contact: “Hello,I want you to be patient, the funds covers the Movers fund, the check is a good check I have been very busy with my dad’s burial arrangement, Kindly get the check deposited and get back to me asap.”  The check has arrived, from an address in Cleveland on a bank not in Cleveland.  I will be checking it’s authenticity via the authorities. The check has arrived, from an address in Cleveland on a bank not in Cleveland.  I will be checking it’s authenticity via the authorities. Most glaring of all is the fact that the Fed-Ex Tracking number points right back to New Mexico!

So there you have it. A slow progression over roughly a week and a half, a sob story and feigned interest in a product very few folks are interested in. There are several clues here. If someone is offering you more money than a product is worth and asks you to move funds about the country using Money Gram then you my friend have found a scammer. Lead them along and collect as much evidence as possible. Don’t touch the check when it arrives and pass it on to the authorities. I would also like to point out that this is not the fault of Craig’s List whatsoever, as a matter of fact they point out how to spot scams. The bottom line is simply knowing the signs. Poor English in the emails, bad phrasing for the area you live in. Missing details and a sudden move that apparently leads you to a big profit.

That about covers it, I am sure this will need editing and a follow-up, but hopefully the point of this article gets across. One more minor item, the email address of the scammer: melodycgz@gmail.com

Other items to check….if these idiots send you a check, check the routing number (first nine numbers on the lower left). The American Banker’s Association has a nice site that will verify the check in no time flat. This one did not match any bank.

You basic fake cashiers check....
You basic fake cashiers check….

Today the server is running where it belongs, on the fast, cheap Dragon Touch X10 Tablet!

The ME572c Home Screen
The ME572c Home Screen

Yesterday the server was down for quite awhile because I was using the LogiTab as a tablet/notebook. I did backup all the files to my little Asus ME572C but was greeted all day with server errors.

The bottom line is that an Arm7 processor works much better with KSWeb than does an Intel! So today this post is being written on and edited via the Asus Me572c.

The Dragon Touch X10 is certainly a decent platform for running a small server on! I rarely have issues with it and the battery life is outstanding.

Today however is a chance to use my favorite little tablet and create a post while I eat lunch. Never underestimate the power of a smaller tablet!
