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!

The HiBook News: OBS Studio Running on a HiBook? Can This Be Real?

Infinity Screen Captures?

Today I ran across a video on YouTube about running OBS Studio on an old, low powered tablet PC called a HiBook! I said to myself, well this can’t be true, but then I remember of course it is!

After all it was me who spent literally hours, to finally get OBS to work on High End Cheap Tech!

So after about a few dozen tries, I figured out how to get a decent screen capture (display capture) video on OBS on a supposedly obsolete/under-powered tablet.

The best part is, after shooting this in two segments, I edited the video on the very same, lowly X5 Z8300 Intel Atom tablet.  Yes, Openshot failed to add a transition at one point, but I’ll take success over disdain anytime!

The video below will mention how to remove background noise and show you that sometimes hardware decoding can get the job done even when you are saying to yourself, “hardware decoding, are you fuc&%$g kidding me?”

That’s all for now kiddies, maybe later I will try this again on the HI12? Leave a comment on YouTube if you want me to try it also!

Just Another Decent Tablet I Ran Across on Gearbest This Evening. Cube iWork10 Flagship Tablet PC

Originally posted 2017-03-22 19:52:27.

The Cube iWork 10 Flagship is another dirt cheap 10.1 inch tablet that you may want to consider. It is priced at a mere  $150 or roughly $199 if you want to get the keyboard.

Those are fairly stellar prices for a 10 .1 inch table with the following specs:

  • OS: Android 5.1, Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz ( up to 1.84GHz )
  • Screen resolution: 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
  • 4 gb DDR3L Ram
  • 64 gb on-board storage
  • microSD slot supports up to 128 GB
  • USB-C port
  • micro USB port
  • Micro HDMI out
  • WIFI: 802.11b/g/n wireless
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery Capacity(mAh): 7000mAh

If you are like me and run a Bluetooth keyboard this becomes very attractive.

Below you will find a video review, keep in mind this tablet has been around for quite awhile…

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Another Video Worth Sharing: The ALLDOCUBE X1, 8.4 inch Tablet!

This one appears for now at least to be a very decent  8.4 inch tablet, at a reasonable price and with some good specs! This initial unboxing and review comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the basics.

The basic specs are listed below:

  • Android 7.1 OS
  • 8.4 inch IPS 2560 x 1600 display
  • Helio X20 deca Core processor
  • Mali – T880 700MHz GPU
  • 64 GB ROM
  • Dual Sim or Sim and microSD card
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless internet
  • 13 mp rear and 8 mp front cameras
  • Battery: 4500mAh,

So the specs are pretty decent, although we should wait on the full review to see how it does on battery life.

All the above being said, make sure to visit Andrew’s YouTube channel and  subscribe to it! Now let us get right to that video!

This device is currently available for around $259 at this site.

That is all for now,

Tim
