It Appears That I am Not the Only One Interested in the Chuwi Hi12!

Originally posted 2016-12-10 01:11:41.

Tonight after doing a whole bunch of what I do best, which is web site creation and editing, I did notice that the tablet at the top of my list on Gearbest was out of stock!

While that is no big deal for me, it is enough warning to let folks know that if you do intend to shop from an overseas retail joint you need to make your mind up in the next 12-24 hrs!

Obviously there are other choices, such as Amazon, but you will pay more for the very same product.

Personally, for your’s truly I am pretty much hooked on the Chuwi Hi12 because of the great reviews and the reasonable price.

Of course if you happen to be looking for yourself and not for a gift, then this still might be a good choice for a very inexpensive tablet since the site still is showing them at $250.

Time is short folks, so check those sites and order in the next 1-2 days!

Tonight We Have a Video Shot On The Hi12. It Really is a Great Tablet!

Flashback Player/Editor/Upload Screen

Tonight I finally took the time to shoot some screen video on the Hi12 and offer my opinions. It is pretty short and to the point, but it really came out well.

The one thing that clearly works better on the Hi12 is the microphone. Although there is a bit of hiss, it is much louder than the HiBook.

I actually uploaded this video at 1080p resolution, so it took a few minutes, but I was able to also take a screenshot and edit it at the same time.

So below you will find the short review of the Hi12. Which is still on sale here for $234.99!

That is all for now,

I Spent All Day Trying To Fix My Paintshop Pro 9.0, Windows Can Be a Real Bitch! Open Source Saves Day!

The GIMP Saves My Bacon Again!

For reasons beyond my comprehension level my PaintShop Pro 9 suddenly decided to become non-functional on my Chuwi HI12 last night. I spent hours trying to reinstall, repair or manually clean out the registry and start over.

All was to no avail.  Perhaps I have a corrupted install file, but I tried it from my microSD card, my routers’s flash drive and even from my phone. I suspect all 3 can’t be corrupt. This is fairly old software and normally installs in less than a minute.

So tonight I will be trying CCleaner and one more install… and that didn’t work. So then I remembered that the GIMP, which I always use in Linux is also available for Windows. So as usual, Open Source/Linux has bailed me out of another issue. If you have seen any of my Linux testing videos, then you are already aware of the GIMP, but if not visit the link I left above and try it out!

So as usual I am once again linked to Linux which when you thing about it, is my mainstay, because this very server that runs on either my PC/HiBook/Hi12 all run on Linux. The fact that I was able to go open source for my image editing has avoided the alternative, which was to blow away the tablet and reinstall a new image with just Windows 10 and no Android. However after reviewing that option and reading the instructions that were somewhat lacking in detail, I went this route and still have a totally functional dual-boot tablet.

You simply do not realize how often you use a program or app until it ceases to function, so remembering I had an alternative was a great relief. I would hate to have to start from scratch with a clean Winderz install.

That is all for this evening,

Tim
