Dragon Touch Report, The Server is running great!

IMG_20160319_132307So this being a Saturday I am watching some sports, and having a great lunch. Today the DTX10 is at home being a web server. Why is that you might ask? Well today we are trying out the Asus Z580CA with the Logitech K480 keyboard.

That is the great thing about using a tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard versus buying one of those expensive tablet/keyboard combos that limit the keyboard to only one device. I can setup the K480 to connect to 3 different devices and change up my “LogiTab” easily from the Dragon Touch to this Asus in seconds.

Today’s report is being written on the Asus Zenpad S 8.0 (Z580CA) and it works flawlessly with this BT keyboard. Sure it is a bit smaller than the Dragon touch but more than adequate for the task at hand. The only downside to this setup is that I still need to purchase an adapter to go from USB C to regular USB so I can plug in my wireless mouse. But the keyboard has more than enough specialty keys to allow me to navigate without ever have to touch the screen.

So back to the Dragon Touch, as usual there is nothing much new to report, it is still working great and still has plenty of room left for any apps I ever need to install and the battery life is as always great!

Well After a Full Week on the Web my ME572C Finally Found a Scammer!

Trust No One...unless you can look them in the eye.
Trust No One…unless you can look them in the eye.

So as I wrote about a short time ago, I am selling the ME572C 7 inch tablet on Craigslist and as usual I have found my first response to be a scam artist.

This guy offered me $250 for a tablet that isn’t worth anywhere near that, rather than trying to lowball me! Folks, when the area code is out of your area on a text and the story involves some strange shipping details, tell them to go pack sand immediately!

Rules of used tablet/computer sales…

  1.  A real buyer will always lowball you on the first contact.
  2. A real buyer will always offer to discuss the sale via phone or send a detailed email asking about location/meeting places, etc.
  3. A scammer will always have a story to tell about work, a funeral or a place you need to send the product to, even though your ad clearly states “no shipping”.

I almost exclusively do business with a handshake and cash so that both parties will known who they are dealing with and to allow me to impart any technical info I consider relevant.

I may update this, if the dumbass text back, but my guess is that after my last response he will look for another sucker.

We all know that touchscreens are a pain to keep clean….because, well, we all leave fingerprints!

A little car wax and a t-shirt

So, over the past few years I have used anything from a damp cloth to glass cleaner to make my tablet/cell phone screens looking clear and bright.

However, none has worked better than some good old fashioned Synthetic car wax. It cleans them up, leaves a smooth, slick surface and so far hasn’t harmed any device I own.

I use a bottle of Turtle Wax Ice, Synthetic wax and it has to be a boatload cheaper than anything you will find specifically meant for a tablet/smartphone! Use a very small amount and a soft cotton t-shirt and your screens will stay bright and smooth for years to come.

That of course is only a suggestion, but my Dragon Touch X10 is looking mighty good tonight.
