ME572C Comes Through Again! Great Tablet!

My Network Toolbox
My Network Toolbox

I don’t always take the Dragon Touch with me but I always carry the Asus ME572C along everywhere I go…

This little 7 inch ME572C Asus never ceases to amaze me. Today I was out and about and realized that one of the yourfreewordpress demo sites was broken.

So what did I do? I installed a couple of free FTP clients and it did take a bit of time but I was able to fix demo site 3 on that server.

Not bad for an inexpensive, little tablet! I was running numerous apps all at once and checking football scores and highlights and there wasn’t a single slowdown or glitch from this tablet.

If you can still find one of these online I still recommend it as one of the best tablets you can buy for the money. Bonus news, it fits in your back pocket!

It’s late and time for a new post…even if the DTX10/LogiTab will be offline 2Morrow!

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

So this week the uptime on the Dragon Touch X10/LogiTab server was roughly 90%! That means a dirt cheap tablet was able to allow me to watch TV shows and stay up as a web server (THIS SERVER) almost all week.

I am continually impressed with it’s usefulness! Both as a basic laptop and a web server to play around on.

It will however be offline on 16 January during the daylight hours as I use it as a tablet/laptop and do what I do on weekends…

However…if you have not purchased one of these dirt cheap handy tablets just yet I shall once again explain why you should.

  • Dragon Touch X10- available for about $119 on Amazon
  • You can find a LogiTech Bluetooth Keyboard (either K480 or K380) for about $30.
  • It has a full USB port which lets you use an optical or wireless mouse.
  • It has great battery life and a decent display for watching video.
  • It won’t break the bank and you can laugh at your friends who own a Samsung or iPad or Surface.

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

OTG Micro-USB Cable
OTG Micro-USB Cable

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!
