It Is Time Once Again For The HiBook News! Today: Finally Shipped the Hi12 Back!

Originally posted 2017-03-18 14:00:26.

Today I finally shipped the Hi12 back to BangGood at the address they finally provided.  So that makes it an even month since I first ordered it. They asked me to provide the lowest cost shipping possible and in rural Kentucky that pretty much meant using the US Postal service which still cost a bundle to send it with a tracking number. $60 to be exact!

I have no clue if they are going to cover my return shipping or not and at this point I was just glad to send the tablet back from whence it came. So now we wait, probably another 30 days before I even get my hands on a working Hi12.

So while ordering a tablet from a Chinese retailer is inexpensive to start with, be prepared for a long return process if the item is defective.  I would have hoped they had a US warehouse to ship it back to, but I don’t think that Banggood has a warehouse here, Gearbest however does, but they didn’t put the Hi12 on sale until this week.

The HiBook of course is still working perfectly, although today I am having mouse issues because I am using a crap $1.50 mouse I bought for the Dragon Touch X10 back in 2015 and the cursor just sort of drifts around with no control. But that is okay, because this is a touch screen after all and I have resorted to using my finger as a pointer.

That is pretty much all I have for today, except I did order another super cheap wireless mouse for this tablet from Amazon!

The HiBook News: This Edition, Finally Got The Server Moved!

Originally posted 2017-12-09 19:33:00.

Eventually this server will end up back on a tablet but for the foreseeable short term future I thought it best to get all the good info on here loaded up onto a full server since I am in the process of moving.

Of course that meant changing a few things such as the URL of the site which no longer contains the :8080 (port 8080) because it is no longer necessary. So if you end up getting an error on a search or from a link on Google, just remove the :8080 part of the address and all should be good.

Obviously there may be some occasional errors, but overall everything should work. I actually created the new database and edited it all on the Hi12 tablet which as usual saved the day. There really isn’t very much that it can’t do when needed.

So please remember to update your book marks and remove that :8080 from the address, thanks!

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: USB C is Great Until You Need to Use a Full Size USB Device!

As stated in the title I was in need of being able to connect 2 devices using full size USB connectors to my HiBook this week. As luck would have it I have somehow lost my USB to USB-C adapter!

USB-C might be the wave of the future, but it is damned useless if you have older keyboards, flash drives and dongles and if you are like me I am sure you didn’t run right out and switch everything to a USB-C device/cable/flash drive.

So I will let the video explain all the details and as usual, make sure to check out our channel, leave feedback in the comments section and also to like our videos and subscribe!

Below is the video as promised….

The HiBook and Logitech Keyboard

For the second week in a row the Chuwi along with the Logitech K480 keyboard has become  my go to notebook! To put it simply, it does everything my Asus X553SA Notebook does but with a brighter screen and faster response times.

This is truly one of the best little tablet notebook combinations I have ever owned and tested. It does everything well.

I do however recommend buying the HiBook Pro version because it has better resolution along with a larger battery. Gearbest has it at a very reasonable price.

Tonight’s First Video Worth Sharing: HiBook Get’s Latest Win 10 Update, Sound Becomes an Issue!

The other day I let the HiBook get the latest Spring Creators update and my sound drivers, etc went to hell in a handcart.

The bottom line is that the microphone is acting like a playback device also. Of course this produces horrendous feedback. I can fix that in the setting so it is removed from the playback devices, but in certain apps when I need to push the mic volume up I get that same feedback.

Below is the video we put on the new  YouTube channel last night to cover the issue. Leave a comment if you have an idea (preferably on YouTube).
