This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing, The Cube Freer X9 Tablet, Not a Bad Tablet!

This morning’s video is on the Cube Freer X9 tablet which has a few good points and a relatively low cost price. This is basically a 9 inch tablet with some very decent specs and a few downsides like the small battery.

This one comes to us from Chris at Techtablets and as usual I suggest subscribing to his YouTube channel.

It would be a great Xmas gift for children or someone who simply uses the device occasionally. However I still recommend getting the HiBook Pro with the larger 10.1 inch screen and a larger battery and currently at the same $169.99 price tag.

This is a very good tablet for the price and is available at BangGood right now for $169.99.

That is all for this morning,

Tim

Okay perhaps my idea about a tablet server cluster was silly. I believe the correct term is redundant servers.

This is Tablet redundancy

Should you read this post this evening, you will notice a notation that this is my Asus Tablet now running as a server. Same address, same KSWeb app, but running on an Intel with twice the ram.

Now what I need is a simple system to keep both tablets synced, because this post won’t be on the Dragon Touch when I fire it back up tomorrow as the test server.

It is rather an interesting question, that really doesn’t require an answer, but gosh darn it, I want suggestions!

The HiBook News, Edition Number 22,758…Okay I Might Be Exaggerating a Bit…This Edition: Notebook Choices

In today’s edition we are going to cover a few subjects near and dear to my heart. First we are looking at the HiBook still being the most kick-ass little server on the web.

Of course if you happen to be one of the tens of visitors we get here you are aware that this site has been on the HiBook pretty much since the day I got it back in August of 2016. It still has fantastic battery life, considering its small size and nothing spectacular battery with a roughly 6000 mAh battery. The HiBook Pro with the 2560 x 1600 display and an 8000 mAh battery is still available currently at $169.99!

Of course balancing storage space is the usual juggling act that one gets with a dual boot device that has only 64 GB to start with. But I manage to keep roughly 10 GB free and that is fine since it only has one other duty and that is to watch videos and movies on, sometimes using Kodi which works quite well.

The server itself is sucking up roughly 10 GB and only is really using about 20% of the space I allocated to the Virtual Machine that it runs on. So I can freely upload images, etc and not really worry about using up the server’s virtual space.

The Hi12 is still my work Tablet/notebook in conjunction with the super K480 Bluetooth keyboard, (which is sometimes referred to as my LogiTab), which works with all my devices. In fact this post is being written on the Hi12 right now. The Hi12 usually gets retired at night so it can recharge and I end up beating the heck out of the HiBook for my usual YouTube/movie/TV viewing.

Now moving on to my search for a notebook that is a little bigger than the Hi12 and capable of doing work and a little playing/video watching, it appears that I have settled upon the Chuwi LapBook Air which is a very nice, premium but under $400 notebook with a 14.1 inch FHD display. You can check my previous post on this one for the specs and a video.

So if anyone out there wants to send me a bit of cash or perhaps buy me a LapBook Air, please feel free to do so. Or please click the links on here to purchase one as the small amount I get out of the sale will certainly help!

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News: This Edition Stopping Hackers, Chapter 3

Last week my primary server was a mess. It was completely infested with something that was causing redirects to some not so reputable sites.

So finally I rebuilt the server on the Hi12 Tablet from a backup that predated the infections. So far that new copy of the VM seems pretty clean.

I ended up changing every password on those sites to something ridiculously long and impossible to remember and far more difficult to hack. So for the time being we seem to be okay. Of course there are never any guarantees on the internet, but for the last several days my primary server seems to be a-okay.

I can still see a lot of attempts to hack the server in the Apache logs, but as I spot them I add those IP addresses to my firewall. So far I have roughly 100 IP’s blocked and end up adding more each day.

So that about covers that issue for the present, so onto the HiBook. It had an issue yesterday where it simply shut down. After arriving home and plugging it in and trying to restart it the tablet suddenly decided to not respond at all. It would not charge or fire up.  It was stone cold dead. So I set it aside for about an hour and tried it again using the reset to defaults start procedure and it fired up and began to charge again.  Of course I had to go back into the BIOS and change the memory speed back to 1600 MHz and it is running just dandy again.

The lesson here is not to give up, but be patient and wait and think it through and sometimes it is just luck and others it is simply going back to the drawing board.

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Asus ZenBook Flip S UX370UA Convertible NoteBook/Tablet

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers a rather expensive, but certainly worth the money notebook/tablet. This is a very high end tablet and for folks like me, not even on my radar, but, it appears to be worth every penny considering what you get for your money! Several accessories are included like a dock and a stylus.

The device also boasts plenty of ports, unlike some products from a company with a fruit based name.

Short list of specs are as follows:

  • 13.3 inch display at either 4K or 1920 x 1080
  • Core i5 Intel processor
  • 16 GB RAM
  • Super thin and light
  • WiFi ac dual band connectivity
  • 512 GB M2 SSD

Okay, lets skip all the minor details and head on over to the video!

That is all for now, but expect another video this evening!
