Picked up a dirt cheap mouse for the LogiTab.

Nice wireless mouse from Amazon.

I went onto Amazon tonight and ordered myself a dirt cheap wireless mouse for the LogiTab. This one has a nice tiny micro size transmitter instead of the larger, huge USB adapter on the older LogiTech mouse that I am using as I write this.

The toal cost was somewhere between $6.00-$7.00, not sure because I didn’t pay much attention to the shipping/tax and the total has yet to show up on my phone. However it was half the price of any of the LogiTech wireless mouse products I could find. I am certain it is nowhere near the quality, but considering it is simply a mouse I shall deal with it.

Next upgrade will be a nice case to tote all this around. Nothing fancy, but it will also be large enough to carry the Asus X553SA notebook I recently purchased.

That is today’s Dragon Touch X10 update.

So because I like playing about in Android, my next project will be testing the Android based Remix OS on my new Asus Notebook.

2015-12-11-23.52.12-980x551Jide’s Remix OS is available for download and you can put it on a PC, using a bootable USB 3.0 flashdrive. The OS offers a window-like experiece via Android and should be quite fun to play with running via the flashdrive!

Of course I need to do 2 things, 1 is to figure out how to boot from the USB drive on my Asus X553SA notebook and 2 is for Amazon to deliver me a rather inexpensive 16gb USB PNY flashdrive. The thumbdrive has been ordered and should be here shortly, but the documentation on the Asus notebook is horribly lacking.

I do however have a few days to deal with that boot sequence scenario, so I am confident this is achievable.

The testing Progresses, next step trying out the Micro-USB port, with a full USB Device

So as we all now know, the Dragon Touch can use a USB wireless mouse via it’s full size USB mouse. That’s neato right? But it’s time to see what that Micro-USB port can do.

So I purchased an OTG (On-The-Go)  cable for a whopping $1.40 from Amazon and when it gets here the testing shall begin.

I will also be trying it out on my Asus ME572C tablet. So when this testing has progressed beyond waiting for the adapter, there shall be follow-ups!

Once again, The Dragon Touch X10 Amazes me!

A Wireless Mouse? Oh hell yeah!
A Wireless Mouse? Oh hell yeah!

Tonight I decided to try out something new with the LogiTab….

Instead of the normal optical corded mouse I plugged in an old wireless LogiTech mouse into the full size USB port and turn on the mouse and was instantly greeted with a cursor.

No drivers to install, no doing an update message, just a mouse, right now. I am sort of liking that.

So does your tablet have a full USB port? Probably not…ya poor bastard.

So why would I choose the Dragon Touch over my Asus Notebook?

The Asus has a larger display, it has a big keyboard that is attached, and it has WiFi that hooks up at up to 150mps, heck it even has a touch-pad and a wireless mouse, but when I head out to have a long lunch and watch some football I choose the Dragon Touch X10 (LogiTab) with my K480 Bluetooth keyboard and Logitech  optical USB mouse.

The reason? The notebook is much larger and takes up far too much table space! Reason 2…the battery life on the LogiTab is at least twice as long as the laptop.

The only advantage of the Asus X553SA over the LogiTab is the keyboard has a number pad. This is not an issue unless you need to input lots of numbers or use the calculator…to input many numbers.

So those are the reasons that this site won’t be online for a good portion of the daytime 2morrow.
