1-gearbest-hi12So as I search for the newest mobile device to test we are now looking at the Chuwi Hi12. The specs are great, and of course I won’t need a keyboard or a microSD card because I already have those.

Obviously if I go with this tablet or anything larger than 10.1 inch I will be getting a case/stand for it, but those are much less expensive than a keyboard.

The specs are as follows:

  • Intel Atom X5-Z8350 Quad Core at 1.44 GHz (up to 1.8 GHz)
  • Fantastic display at 2160 x 1440
  • USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports
  • WiFi /b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 4 gb Ram
  • 64 gb onboard storage
  • microSD up to 128 gb
  • 5 mp rear camera, 2 mp front shooter
  • 11000 mAh battery

Below is a short video review I found…

That about covers it for this evening,

Occasionally Your Win 10 Print Queue May Get Clogged and Cease to Respond, Easy Fix, Write a Batch File: Video

Super simple batch file to clear your printer queue!

We have an HP 3510 series printer at work and occasionally the printer will cease to function. This is because either my HiBook or Hi12 has decided to get a clogged up, (best words I can think of), printer queue.

It is relatively easy to clear the spooler/queue via the command line, but I went ahead and wrote a batch file to do it super fast!

So you can type in the text from the image at the beginning of this post or you can pause the video below. It is a whopping 3 lines and Win 10 will ask you to verify you want to run the file you create. Obviously say yes, or learn how to do it the long way.

Save your file as a notepad file with an extension of “.bat”.

Below is the amazing video, shot on the Hi12 while doing laundry….

That is all,

So Has Anyone Else Out There Gotten Their Windows 10 Update Today? On a Monday?

A Monday Update?

As I understand it Microsoft generally puts out updates on Tuesdays, and usually not on the first day of the month considering it is a Monday evening.

Yet tonight my Chuwi Hi12 got the latest Windows update and I just happened to see the reboot warning and switch the server back onto the HiBook before it decided to do it’s restart.

It was apparently a small update because it was done in less than 5 minutes, which is awful damned fast for anything from Microsoft. I have no idea what said update was and have yet to check the details but I am guessing perhaps some hot security update? I do not know at the moment.

But the Chuwi Hi12 has survived and no tablets were killed in the update, so far….

…A short followup here…there were 2 updates and well you need to look at the image below to find the humor in this!

That is all.

Chuwi HiBook: More Tests, Making Sure All Cores Were Being Used! (Answer Was Yes.)

HiBook Labs, Where we are still curious about what is in those cabinets!

Tonight is day 2 of testing and more testing on the HiBook Tablet. This time I was concerned by the fact that if I right-clicked “This PC” and checked properties I only saw 2 cores.

After an hour or so of reading I realized I could check it in both Linux and using the Task Manager in Windows. This small bit of research paid off and I found out that you can pretty much ignore that properties screen in Windows 10, because MicroCrap’s task manager shows 4 cores.

This was further confirmed by logging into the Linux server here via telnet and running the simple command: cat /proc/cpuinfo. That output is pictured below, although it is only showing Processor 3 info, (yeah, processors are numbered 0-3 in Linux). As usual, click image to see full size.

Why yes, Linux is reporting 4 CPU’s!

For the curious, here are some images from the Windows 10 side of things, taken from the task manager. Click images to see full size.

Extra High CPU Speed, while someone loads the site from scratch.

The bottom line is that my curiosity was satiated and I found out that I really was running all 4 cores. I have no clue how helpful this might be, but, it damn sure made me get interested in that search for the latest inexpensive, killer tablet.

Don’t forget, it can take awhile to get those new devices delivered, so make sure to check out Amazon and Gearbest sites NOW!

That is all for this evening,
