1-gearbest-hi12So as I search for the newest mobile device to test we are now looking at the Chuwi Hi12. The specs are great, and of course I won’t need a keyboard or a microSD card because I already have those.

Obviously if I go with this tablet or anything larger than 10.1 inch I will be getting a case/stand for it, but those are much less expensive than a keyboard.

The specs are as follows:

  • Intel Atom X5-Z8350 Quad Core at 1.44 GHz (up to 1.8 GHz)
  • Fantastic display at 2160 x 1440
  • USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports
  • WiFi /b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 4 gb Ram
  • 64 gb onboard storage
  • microSD up to 128 gb
  • 5 mp rear camera, 2 mp front shooter
  • 11000 mAh battery

Below is a short video review I found…

That about covers it for this evening,

A Video Worth Sharing: Next Time You Think Your Car/Bike Is Fast….Well Just Watch!

Obviously most videos I share here are about tablets and laptops that have very low top speeds. However I still subscribe to the notion that the idea of this site is to put the tablet itself through the wringer and the content is secondary. I used to road race motorcycles a number of years back, but I would never even consider trying this! I have no problem riding at 190+ MPH, but not in these conditions!

So all that being said here is a video that anyone who thinks they can drive fast will appreciate. It is about 2 years old, but any true motorcyclist will notice how smooth the rider being filmed is. You will also notice that these folks are running on regular streets here with little or no safety barriers. Top speeds here are roughly 200 MPH…yeah, that means don’t fall in those small towns they pass through!

This was all shot on the Isle of Mann, by the way.

Found a Cure For An Annoying Microsoft Edge Bug. Icons Not Displaying on Favorites or In Tabs -Fixed

So if you are one of those folks who operate a WordPress web site and you have noticed that Microsoft Edge doesn’t pick up your site icons there actually is a fix. Obviously these sorts of issues don’t affect those using Chrome or virtually any other decent browser out there, but since I am stuck using Edge until I figure out why Chrome causes my Hi12 tablet to not come back on after the display turns off I am stuck with using this horrendous piece of Microcrap software.

So the issue is that Edge tends not to display all site icons. It displays some, like those on The Tablet Server here, but not on any of the other sites I run. So that led me to Google and a lot of searching and reading. Finally in a Microsoft support post/forum I found hidden among a dozen or so useless replies a suggestion to make the site icons in PNG format. So having nothing to lose I converted my site icons to PNG format and poof, problem solved!

Obviously as a user of the Edge browser there isn’t a thing you can do to fix this issue. There is no magic button or setting to remedy this. This is strictly up to the webmaster of the web site(s) in question to fix.

So the problem is solved and the question is answered. Of course it should have never been a question in the first place. If you are wondering if doing this will affect other browsers, the answer is no, they handle PNG site icons just fine.

That is all for now,

Tim

It is Saturday July 1, 2017 And Time Again For The HiBook News!

Today we are proud to announce for those who do not visit all that often we now have a greeting message from the tablet-server itself. It does change just about every day or when the tablet feels the urge to create a new audio file.

I would like to take the credit for these messages, but these are created by the actual computer itself. On a PC or tablet you will see the link to them in the right-hand menu, on a phone, well that depends on whether you are using a crap iPhone or an Android and which browser you are using.

I am completely disavowing any knowledge of the creation or editing of these audio files. Should any of them offend or otherwise cause you consternation, I do not care. Blame the HiBook or the Hi12. I will admit to teaching them a little English and of course imbuing them with the knowledge of my capabilities, but beyond that, they are on their own.

A word from the tablet…

So that is about it for now, still waiting on a few video reviews to post,

Tim
