The LogiTab doing its thing.

Today the roles have been reversed and the Dragon Touch is my notebook and the server is running on the Asus X553SA notebook, which incidentally did a super job yesterday. I found that by simply reducing the screen brightness to roughly 65% that I could coax an addition 2 hrs out of the battery.

The Dragon Touch 10 is still working great and will be back on server duty again tomorrow. I can’t believe just how well this inexpensive tablet has proven to be.

Sure I have pissed, bitched and moaned a bit about the Andoid 5.1 updates and had some issues, but overall this tablet when combined with a Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard and a wireless mouse is still an incredibly useful tool!

If you are thinking of purchasing one of those overpriced Apple or a Mircosoft Surface, rethink it. If all you need is some web access and to be able to do a bit of typing on a real keyboard and a mouse then this setup rules! There is simply no reason to spend a ton of money on a product that that costs twice as much.

You don’t have to a Logitech keyboard, any Bluetooth keyboard will do the trick, I just happen to think that the Logitech products are a bit better, but I have actually seen BT keyboards available on gearbest.com for less than $15 and any decent wireless mouse will work, but remember you do get what you pay for.

The Dragon Touch is a great deal for the price and last night I installed N.O.V.A 3, which is a great game and it actually ran very well on this tablet. So you can play your games, post stuff on the web, and install a ton of apps all for a lot less then purchasing the high end stuff.

What amounts to ‘Proof of Concept’ for the New Tablet I am Considering! Win 10 on a dual-core Notebook running a VM in Linux!

VM is working great!
VM is working great!

So once again this evening I did a bit more testing using my Asus X553SA Notebook to see how well Windows 10 with a VMware server, running on Linux Debian would work.

There were a few minor glitches, such as having to install the php5-gd library and Imagemagick so I could edit images inside WordPress and crop headers, etc.

However all seems well at this time as I write this directly to the Asus notebook based server.

Below is a short video I recorded using my BLU Studio Energy2 phone via screen capture.

So someone buy my Asus Z580CA so I can test this all out on a nice Windows 10 Tablet!

The video below is for those who never visit the Tablet Test site, because by the morning this site will be back in the Dragon Touch X10.

I installed the KSWeb App on my Dragon Touch and then proceeded to install WordPress. So far it works quite well. I added a plugin or two, changed the default theme and stole the header off the Dragontouchx10 website.

It would be a very handy web development server for sure. A nifty way to show clients your work rather quickly. It does run quite well. And no this is NOT a permanent fixture on the web.

Update, 21Nov2015: Sometimes this site will actually be running on my Blu Studio X Android phone, which is quite adept at serving up pages using the same KSWeb app. Check the About page to see which server you are viewing.

No Sooner do I Bitch About Selling the Dragon Touch X10 and it Sells!

61oSDuBYzgL._SL1000_The previous article mentioned my woes with selling the DTX10 Tablet and low and behold that one viable customer I had, called this afternoon and drove 35 miles to pick it up!

So my faith in humanity is restored, the DTX10 has found a new home and all is once again well on the tablet front. Although I no longer have 2 tablets to run this site from. On the other hand the buyer purchased a great tablet for a super reasonable price and it appears from what he told me it will get some decent usage!

So closes the saga of the DTX10. A somewhat sad day, but a happy day for the new owner!

I have NOT removed the permanent Dragon Touch X10 Website. UPDATE HERE! Restored the Site!

Screenshot_2016-07-29-02-37-30Because I am in the process of getting rid of my Dragon Touch X10 Tablet, I have decided to shutdown the permanent Dragon Touch X10 site. Having realized that most of the articles written on there are also on this server, I saw no need to tie up my primary server with an additional site.

For those who liked that site, well…sorry, it is gone, database dumped, history, no more, deceased, dead, etc.

After all you can post your questions about the DTX10 right here on this site. Just leave a comment or register and post your own article!

Okay, a few folks bitched and moaned so the Dragon Touch X10 was restored from the most recent backup I could find which was hiding on my Asus Notebook.
