WebOS will be an Open Source

When HP announced a while back that the company was abandon their plans of making Tablets using WebOS as Operating System, I literally thought that that was the stupidest idea that have ever came out from a big company as HP. Well, not counting the idea of not selling PCs anymore.

Today I found out that HP could be making Tablets with WebOS in 2013. And what's more important, they have plans to make WebOS an Open Source OS. Both, excellent news. The fact that they are planning or thinking about it, that's good. The issue is the year. Why 2013? That means that there are many people at HP that still very narrow ideas about the current market. But... At least... This "unofficial" announcement gives us some hope that we will see coming new good ideas and planes from this company.

Zippy Compact Keyboard

What could be a better way to write a review about a device that using that same device to write the review. The Zippy BT-500 does not bring too much new to the market, but convenience. It's a compact BT keyboard, ideal to be used as companion with a Tablet or one of those small media center pcs or video players. And the fact that this keyboard allows you to connect up to 6 devices and switch between them just by pressing Fn+ points you toward the idea or having one small keyboard in your living room to be used with whatever device you need to use at the moment whether it's your tablet, your game console or your Media Center PC.

The keyboard uses two AAA batteries and have an ON/OFF switch at the bottom to maximize the battery life.

The size of it is a little bit smaller than the length of the iPad as you can see from the picture. A person with small hands could easily write more than 35 words per minutes on it. Probably is not something to be used for long periods of time, but definitely a must have in the scenarios above explained.

Due to the thickness of it, probably it's not an ideal companion for a Tablet, check the above picture. But if you carry your Tablet in a backpack or any other type of case, then the Zippy is small enough to be considered for this task.

The Zippy is well constructed. It does not feel cheap. The keys do not rattle if you move the keyboard quickly. There is a little sound coming from the battery compartment that could be eliminated easily with a little sponge put between the battery and the plastic cover.


The Zippy Compact Keyboard is the ideal keyboard for all the devices in your living room. The connectivity to multiple devices make it ideal for this situation. Having the size of a control remote, I'm sure that nobody will complain about it. More if you are replacing with it a full-size keyboard.

Kindle Fire is not selling well

According to PC Mag, the Amazon latest Kindle is not selling in the way that the company was expecting. I'm not surprised at all. Why? The battery does not last weeks like it does in the old Kindle or even in the most current versions with e-ink display. That's one point. The color screen is not good for reading in all light conditions, specifically under the sun or outdoors. And lastly, it's a lot better deal to buy one of the e-ink display Kindle.

So, if your are thinking about buying an ebook reader this holiday season avoid the Fire.

Emoji Keyboard in iOS 5 for iPad

There is nothing that gives me more joy than learning something new. And today, I learned something new. I have been using iOS 5 already for few weeks without knowing that Apple added a new keyboard...

The Emoji Keyboard!

The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Slate

Linda Epstein has recently reviewed the The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Slate, a TabletPc so easy to use tha a squirrel can use it.

This TabletPc is using Windows 7 in an Atom processor, this means that it's giving up performance against battery life, in this case, 8 hours. Another point is the HDD of only 64Gb (32Gb the cheapest one). Today a HDD of that side is practically nothing. The price is not bad. The 32Gb version is $729 and the 64Gb is $849. This machine has a dual digitizer, so it's touch capable and it uses too a digital pen. The best of the both worlds. The ink experience is really good on it according to Linda.

Dell Latitude ST Windows 7 Tablet

The Dell Latitude ST is a TabletPc running a full version of Windows 7 with an Intel Atom processor.

Still there is not any other info about this device beside what is in this video.

GumDrop cases

Gumdrop cases are one of the best cases in the market. They are a little bit expensive but when you are talking about an iPad 2, with a price tag starting in the $400, my guess is that you want to be sure that's well protected.

Gumdrop cases have served numerous schools where they have survived numerous tests including smashing iPad's against the wall, dropping down, Etc., but the best reviews are the one coming from the actual owners of these cases.

"User 1: This is a great heavy duty case. I teach special education so I needed something that would protect my ipad if it were to get dropped, stepped on, or even thrown across the room. This is a great case and I would definitely recommend it."

"User 2: I've been using this case for about a month now and it is one of the best cases I've found for the iPad 2. This case is something I would have expected from otter box. The versatility of the case and the superior protection is amazing. I have a 2 year old that loves to carry my iPad around and with her dropping it and the sticky fingers this is one of the only case that protects against all of it. I love the interchangeable screen protector that just pops out when the case isn't on. Which allows you to change quickly and easily when it gets all scratched up. I would recommend this case to anyone looking for maximum protection. The only problem I've had or negative thing is that the home button is very sensitive so I accidentally press it a lot.

Apple's Security Myth

If you are one of those who think that using an Apple's product protects you of hackers and virus makers, think twice. Here is a video that proves that there are not prefect products even if they are made by Apple.

Very low price for the Asus Eee Transformer

The price for the Asus Eee Transformer has gone down a lot. Now you can buy the 32Gb model including the Keyboard/extended battery/docking station for less than $500! In my opinion, the Transformer is one of the best if not the best Android device in the market. The fact that you can use it with or without keyboard gives you the best of the two worlds. And with the keyboard which holds another battery you will get 16 hours of battery life! Two working days!

Windows 8, sign and connect

Recently Microsoft revealed how is going to be the experience of login on to Windows 8:

After the first time a user connects your app to their Windows Live ID, the user will always have a seamless single sign-on experience from any Windows 8 PC where they are signed in with a Windows Live ID. The same extends to your website, where they get a single sign-on experience if they are signed in to their PC with a Windows Live ID or signed in to any site that supports Windows Live ID, such as Hotmail or SkyDrive.
If you are a developer click the link to the article to find some tips about how to start developing for Metro including this functionality.

And what about Office?

Recently PCWorld published a nice article about how Microsoft is redesigning all the elements in Windows 8, including the task manager.

It's interesting to see in that article something that IT professionals know very well, Outlook is a monster sucking resources. In overall, the whole Office Package is the most inefficient software from the point of view of how it uses the PC resources.

So the question to Microsoft is, is not time to do the same with Office?

BoxWave stylus now just $10

After testing few capacitive styluses I ended permanently using one made by BoxWave which price is now $10, that's 9 dollars cheaper than when I bought it. By buying this product you are helping to support this blog. Thanks.


OCOSMO OCS9 is a new TabletPc that's about to be released by Dynamism. This machine will come with Windows 7 installed and there is where all the problems start. Despite the really short booting time, check the video at Dynamism, having Windows 7 in this machine is wrong! The machine comes with a 16Gb or a 32Gb SSD. This means that there won't be almost any space left in the 16Gb one after installing Office 2010 on top of whatever version of W7 comes in that machine. That will push many users to go with the 32Gb one. The 32Gb one will run into the same problem in few months. Whoever has used an 16Gb iPad will tell you that all it takes is few 3D or simulations games to run out of storage space. In Windows World everything uses more space. I have a TabletPC with 60 Gb HDD and I had a lot of problems last week trying to free 9Gb to backup my iPad before the iOS 5 upgrade.

Even when the idea is that a TabletPc should be used as a complementary machine and never as your main one, the fact is that that does not apply to an immense number of users. Today a machine running Windows and having a storage capacity of less than 100Gb is almost useless for huge percentage of users. Definitely, it's not recommended for college students.

Another problem is the Atom processor used in this machine. Just check the video include at Dynamism and you will notice that the Launching interface included in the OSC9 does run smooth. You may say that the games are but games sometime are tricky because you are running them at a lower resolution. The fact is that the OSC9 have issues running a graphic interface in the native resolution. Is this important? No, unless you want to mimic a Tablet or you are a gamer. But definitely is something to be consider.

Now, keep in mind that I have not seen or tested the machine. I checked the specifications and watched a demo video. I would wait for a real owner review before scratching it from your Christmas list. The external design to this machine is really appealing.

iOS 5 update, a catastrophe

If you search in Google, you will find it in mostly all Mac/Apple forums, but, I do not know why, may be paying respect to Jobs, only few important pages are talking about the bad planned iOS 5 upgrade. And what worries me now is the question, is Apple ready to handle the whole traffic that iOS 5 will create with the new "Backup in the Cloud" concept and the coming new upgrades? It seems to me that they are not prepared. I could install iOS 5 in my iPad only 12 hours after the release and activate the Backup in the Cloud option only after 36 hours. And I still cannot create my first backup. The servers are so slow that took me more than 4 hours to download the 707Mb iOS file. The speed was comparable with the one we had in a old 56kb Modem.

What can I say about iOS 5?
There are few neat new features like the Tabs in Safari.

The Reader option in some pages.

The split keyboard that makes easier typing with two fingers.

But, let's be realistic. Nothing out the ordinary or innovative.

Wi-Drive for iPad and iPhone

The Wi-Drive is one of those accessories that is not perfect thanks to the ridiculous restrictions imposed by Jobs to Apple's products. This accessory is an external SSD that allows you to share information with your iPad or iPhone. In this way you do not have to use the space in your iPad with movies and other files that you can easily access via WiFi from the Wi-Drive. Why is not perfect? Because thanks to Apple's restrictions you cannot copy files from your iPad to this device.

This is part of the legacy left behind by Jobs. These cases make me believe that in the same amount that Jobs contributed in the technology progress, he is also responsible for making this progress slower.

Navigation App for Windows Phone 7

NAVIGON Launches First On-Board Navigation App for Windows Phone 7 Smartphones Premium GPS App for Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) Provides Turn-by-Turn Directions without a Cell Phone Signal, NAVIGON also Releases Free traffic4all App

Hamburg, Germany, October 11, 2011,--NAVIGON AG, a leading provider of mobile phone on-board navigation, today announced the launch of the first on-board navigation app for Windows Phone 7 smartphones. NAVIGON's app is available for Windows Phone 7.5 users and takes advantage of new features made available to developers with this new release such as the ability to save an address to the start screen. In addition, NAVIGON also launches a free traffic app for Windows Phone 7, traffic4all.

Similar to a standalone navigation device, NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 works in areas without a cell phone signal, so users can get directions and information anytime, anywhere. Other navigation apps for Windows Phone 7 are dependent on a cell phone connection to download map and routing data. Therefore, no cell signal can render navigation useless or interrupted until a connection is reestablished.

"We are pleased to bring our award-winning navigation app to Windows Phone 7," said Gerhard Mayr, NAVIGON vice-president of worldwide mobile phones and new markets. "The app includes many of the same signature features that have made NAVIGON's apps successful on other platforms, such as Android and iPhone. The user interface is fully customized to the Windows Phone 7 experience, so users of this platform will feel right at home."

NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 includes spoken turn-by-turn directions, visual lane guidance, live traffic information and rerouting, among many other features. NAVIGON's new app runs on Windows Phone 7.5 and also takes advantage of new features made available to developers with this new release. These features include the augmented reality function Reality Scanner, which provides an instant and effortless way of identifying nearby destinations while on foot; an option to select address information directly from the phone's contact list; and the ability to save a favorite or home address as a shortcut on the start screen.

NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 features include:
· NAVIGON MyRoutes: The app includes routing technology built upon NAVIGON's 20 years of experience in the navigation industry, so users get the most reliable routes available. The MyRoutes feature provides customized route suggestions with up to three different choices based on the user's driving style.
· Reality View Pro and Lane Assistant Pro: Reality View Pro feature clearly displays photo-realistic views of actual highway/interstate signs, exits, and lane guide markers so users can see lane changes and exits in advance. Lane Assistant Pro prepares drivers to make an upcoming exit or turn with a lane map complete with arrows and actual road geometry.
· NAVTEQ® maps: NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 uses one of the most robust and accurate geographic databases in the world, providing the most accurate map data and points-of-interest information. The superiority of NAVTEQ® maps is defined by its verified accuracy, content richness, and its breadth of coverage data.
· Traffic Live: NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7--using real-time traffic information available from industry leader INRIX--alerts drivers to traffic problems and automatically calculates alternative routes so they can avoid congestion and save time.
· Reality Scanner: Reality Scanner is an augmented reality feature, providing an instant and effortless way of identifying nearby destinations. Users simply point their smartphone in any direction to see points-of-interest icons appear directly onto a live camera view, making it easy to find destinations on foot.
· NAVIGON Shortcut: Save any address as a shortcut to the Windows Phone 7 start screen. This allows users to start navigating, for example to their home address, with only one click.
· Speed Assistant: Drivers can potentially avoid costly tickets by receiving alerts when they're speeding and getting notified of speed and red light cameras before they pass them.

Additional features include Google Local Search, which allows users to find local points-of-interest instantly; one-tap access to help users find critical services such as hospitals and police stations in case of an emergency; and the ability to select address information directly from the phone's contact list.

NAVIGON traffic4all Windows 7 App
In addition to its turn-by-turn navigation app for Windows Phone 7, NAVIGON also announced a free traffic app: traffic4all helps drivers to avoid gridlock and save time by providing a clear overview of traffic conditions. NAVIGON developed an intuitive user interface that displays traffic incidents on a map with a single hit of a button. Colored road overlays indicate traffic flow, ranging from green for normal to red for traffic congestion or black/white for blocked roads. The app also allows users to plan ahead and look up traffic forecasts by entering a specific time and location.
traffic4all uses traffic information from NAVIGON's partner INRIX. The leading traffic expert covers more roads than any other provider, delivering real-time traffic information that extends beyond major highways and interstates covering more than two million miles in North America and Europe.

Pricing and Availability
NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 includes on-board NAVTEQ maps for the USA and is available for $49.99 in the Windows Marketplace. NAVIGON offers a special introductory price of $29.99 until November 15, 2011.
NAVIGON traffic4all is available at no cost in the Windows Phone Marketplace. An upgrade option for $1.49 turns off the integrated ads. For more information, please visit: www.navigon.com.

Netflix, what the heck is going on?

Let me start with a copy of the email that I received today and after that I'll post my comment on it.


It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.

This means no change: one website, one account, one password…in other words, no Qwikster.

While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.

We're constantly improving our streaming selection. We've recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we've added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.

We value you as a member, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get your movies & TV shows.


The Netflix Team

Is there anyone at Netflix thinking for a minute before taking decisions and make them public? Is there anyone at Netflix conducting customers' surveys asking simple questions like "Do you want to see two separate bills coming from what's now one service"? Is there any one at Netflix using what is call common sense?

I was about to cancel my DVD subscription when I received the email about the separation of the two services (by the way, who is the one coming with these names!? Qwikster?).

It seems to me that somebody needs to be fired at Netflix to end all this chain of bad decisions that have ended aggravating customers. I understand that Netflix is trying to make money, but I really believe that these bad marketing decisions have resulted in a complete opposite reaction. Is anyone at Netflix checking the number of accounts cancelled per month or even weeks? Is there a Marketing Department or everything is coming from a Micromanager AKA CEO?

I hope that everything ends here because Netflix is no longer the only streaming and DVD source available.

Ink in Windows 8

One of the features that I like most in a TabletPc is the "ink". So this report coming from WinTablet.info made my day. The post and video at the end of the page are in Spanish, but it's not that hard to understand what is all about. It seems that he recognition which is working in English only is not as good as in Windows 7 at least for now. There is a new version of Journal that "recognizes" better than the old one. The Recognizer Pad has been redesigned. New color, new buttons layout.

Steve Jobs has died

Steve Jobs has died. It's all over the news. The person who invented the fonts but was better known for those ideas that never gained a position in the market and thanks to him became best sellers, has passed away. The hole he will leave in Apple was noticed yesterday in the Keynote. Will Apple survive his dead? I really do not know. Many thing will change now in Apple without his dictatorship. That's for sure.

Anyway... Rest In Peace, Steve. You will be missed.

What browser are you using?

Recently I was checking the news and I found an interesting poll which result was that only a little bit more than 9% of users still was navigating the web with IE. I do not know Betanews so I can not give any opinion about them but I think that if we publish a poll in a page dedicated to MacOS, probably the winner would be Safari. Do not you think? And that does not mean that Safari is dominating the market.

To prove my point I went and checked the statistics of one of my pages.

IE 1224 users 43.1%
Firefox 686 users 24.1%
Other 346 users 12.2%
Chrome and Opera 226 users 7.9% each
Netscape 3 users 0.1%

43% is not that good but is not 9%! Polls sometime are tricky and far from representing the reality.

Looking for a job is a full time job

Those who knows me they know that I give any task the best of me and I do that with passion. So now I'm looking for a job with all the discipline and passion as I'm still employed. I wake up around 7:30 am. Before 8 am I'm already with my iPad checking all my emails.

I have opened accounts in all big Jobs companies online so I receive from them a bunch of emails every night. From there I open the apps for iPad or iPhone from Dice, Monsters.com and CB and start looking for new positions opened. Every time that I find a match I try to apply from the iPad. And here is the tricky part. If you have already created an account in any of these companies, you already have your resume uploaded, so in this case you can apply from the iPad. If any of these applications send you to the employer site then you can not apply from the iPad because there is not a way thanks to Apple developers and the great Steve Jobs to select a file from your iPad and upload it to a web page. So in this case I send the link to my email. Usually this process takes me almost the whole morning.

I take a lunch break around noon. After that I turn on my laptop, I start the process of applying to all those jobs that I could not apply from the iPad thanks to the magical Web Navigation Experience in this device. This process could take me up to 4 more hours believe it or not. Each application is different and I have to answer questioners, upload files, etc.

So there are 8 hours of work just like in a real job.

Using the iPad does not make the process longer. And here is why. Usually the mobile version of all these sites do not have annoying adds wasting your time. Some of these adds ask you to feel forms and if you are not aware that they are not part of the application process you end subscribing to receive calls with information about how to get certifications or degrees. That already happened to me.

All this while Republicans and Democrats discuss how to make the whole process of creating more jobs longer. It does not matter anymore if Obama goes and proposes a republican idea, right after the proposal the republicans go against it. All that is just sick! I never saw something like that with Clinton or Bush. And that makes me believe that Obama is an inept without cojones.

Unfortunately, there is not an independent candidate running so far because one thing is sure, in 2012, my vote is not going to be democrat neither republican.

I, I keep working in my new job of looking for a job while I can pay for my Internet. If I wait for Obama or the republicans I'm totally lost. And the unemployment help is not enough to pay even for the food. Not that I want any help. I even have not applied yet for it. All I need is a job. And looking for it is what I'm doing with all my heart.

Mobile Devices Managment

With the increase in the use of all kind of mobile devices in the enterprise environment managing these devices is becoming a huge problem for IT Managers. An average business has more than 15 executives, imagine all of them wanting to have access to your network and databases real time. How can you handle your security? How do you keep them updated with the latest version of whatever software you are using to access your database? How do you remove from their devices unwanted software?

That's where a software like BoxTone EMM is highly appreciated.

NoSQL, new database engine

Databases utilizing SQL are dominating the market today so the news about a company promoting a different type of database engine called NoSQL and claiming better performance and an easier administration and developing environment is something that should be tracked.

W8: New system, old challenges

I was reading an article posted at CNET that made me think about the new challenges on front of Microsoft to succeed with W8. Steve Ballmer recently said that Windows 8 is all about Touch and it's evident that the UI is pointing to that. But the downside of this is that Windows 8 is an OS for PCs and the majority, 99.99%, of the PC software currently in the market is not designed thinking about Touch. This is not a new issue. We, TablePC owners, have been suffering from this issue since the first TabletPC was released to the market and since them nobody cared about making versions more TabletPC ("ink") friendly, even Microsoft, have you tried to use Excel in a TabletPc?

I'm afraid that we are going to see the same situation now with Microsoft's Tablet. We will see a wonderful experience within the Metro design and then a complete different experience when using programs that are not "Metro". This could be a negative point in W8 sales, at least it was with TabletPCs.

By the way, TabletPc were those devices that used their screens as input devices and were running Windows Operating System. Now with W8 it seems to me that the name TabletPC will die forever. It will be replaced perhaps for WinTablet.

New Blue Screen of Death

Windows 8 is different, so different that it comes with a new and more friendly Blue Screen of Death. Here is the screen shot, courtesy of Techcrunch:

iOS 5 versus Windows 8

It's not a secret that I do not like the tile design of Metro. But... I can see some usability on it, they are like the Android widgets, and that's something that Apple still do not have in iOS and that really makes a difference. Anyway, here is a video that compares the newest iOS 5 with Windows 8.

Excellent video about W8

JKK has posted a wonderful video about Windows 8. In more than 30 minutes he checks everything that's available at this stage in this, if we can call it, alpha version.

Handwriting recognition in W8

One of the things that I hate in my iPad 2 is the lack of handwriting recognition support. So, I have been tracking every single news about Windows 8 trying to find if this feature and all the improvements gained since XP Tablet PC edition have been included in this new version of Windows.

This week Microsoft gave developers a preview of Windows 8. I'm going to show you two screen captures taken from that preview.

I love ink. A very clear message. But this is not all. I zoomed the button indicated using the arrow. And here is what it says.

Of course, many things can change from this Alpha version and the final version but let's hope that this is not one of the one that won't be included.

Linkedin and Taleo

All of you probably know Linkedin, a social network for professionals but no all you probably know Taleo. Taleo is a company that supplies employers and recruiters with a tool capable of tracking applications, candidates, etc. Well, the two companies are working now in a project where Taleo uses Linkedin as main source of the information. Linkedin is becoming one of the most powerful tools for both job hunters and employers. If you don't have an account in Linkedin I will advise you that is time for you to go and open one. You will never know when you are going needed. I opened mine a long time ago. If you know me and want to be part of my connections go ahead and click in the Connect Link, good recommendations are welcome!

Windows 8 booting in seconds

Microsoft showed developers today a preview of Windows 8. You can find a list of the new features shown here. There are many things that look really good, the booting time, support for non-Intel CPUs, Skydrive support, Hyper-V support and Touch screen support, but I really hate the Tile Windows Phone 7 design wasting the desktop space.

Bring Your Own Device

Bring Your Own Device. Is this a novel new concept or just a new nightmare for IT Managers?

Here is how IT-Director.com explains the concept.

BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is exactly what is sounds like and, as a policy, is gathering pace. The concept is simple; give a fixed financial allowance to staff and let them buy a device of their choice. This gives employees the choice they inevitably want and removes hassle and cost of providing support services for IT managers (well, some of it anyway). There are obvious policies and procedures that are needed to enable this—not least the provision of Citrix to allow secure access to data from “untrusted” devices and suitable maintenance contracts purchased with devices, but it is certainly a novel way to solving a complex issue. A blue sky concept, possibly, but certainly not pie in the sky because, as cloud computing gathers yet more pace and SaaS is increasingly adopted, this model becomes viable. BYOD has already been rolled out across Kraft foods and the Law Firm SNR Denton.

There are many things that need to be changed to have a concept like that working fine. Most of them in the security area. The other problem that I can see is that in my experience most of the users do not know fully the devices that they own and they use less than 50% of the features on those devices. This will force IT to spent more time in training and if you have a rainbow of devices that will become easily in an IT Management issue.

Another Android Tablet under $100

Here is another good deal from Amazon in an Android Tablet.
This tablet PC is taking the Internet by storm, get it while it's super hot which uses higher quality components compared to the unbranded versions. Super light weight and the ideal size for portability and usability. Be the first to show off the smarter person's tablet PC. Inside the box is everything you will need to be fully up and mobile with your deluxe customizable unlocked Internet Tablet PC. This tablet has just as many features as the some other well known tablet PCs but in a slim, compact 199 x 129 x 14 (mm), 399 gram casing which is also around half the weight of all other well known tablet PCs.

Flash Support for Apple Devices

Seems that Adobe finally found a workaround to Apple's restrictions according to this report. This does not mean that we will be able to see flash contest from now one. Far from that. Webmasters will have to buy the new Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Adobe Flash Access 3.0 and at this moment is not clear to me if they will have to change or convert their current flash objects hosted at their sites. In another hand, nothing need to be installed in any of the Apple's devices. Very smart from Adobe.

PDF Annotator maintenance release

PDF Annotator, a must have for TabletPC owners has made available a maintenance Release. According to the latest newsletter, this release fixes couple of bugs and includes some improvements. By the way, the news letter also includes a really good guide about how to use PDF Annotator Toolbox.

Business may skip Windows 8

According to Gartner, companies will skip Windows 8 because they just started the migration to Windows 7. And I totally agree. From my own experience as an IT Manager, I just took the decision to migrate all our Windows XP Machines to Windows 7. The process is tedious and we found a lot of problems with printers drivers. So my experience confirms what Gartner points, companies are fatigued from a recent upgrade and will not jump into this new version. This will have a huge impact in Microsoft's plans and shows that releasing new Operating Versions every 2 or 3 years is really a bad idea if you are aiming at the business market.

Android Tablet for less than $90

It's a refurbished unit but I have bought many refurbished devices in the past and I never had problems with any of them. In fact, I feel less worried when I buy a refurbished unit than when I buy a new one. The refurbished devices have been checked twice by the QA Department and they usually do a better job the second time to avoid a new return. Here is the deal, I'm talking about the PanDigital a Tablet with Android that has the potential needed for anyone willing to buy a Tablet but that can't afford to pay more than $400 for one.

The PanImage Multimedia tablet changes the way you access the web, access email, check social networks and curl up with a good book. With instant access to the Barnes and Noble PanImage Color Multimedia Tablet lets you read and carry hundreds of books, magazines, and newspapers with you wherever you go.

Android for the HP Touchpad

When HP announced that basically was dropping the support and plans to build any kind of mobile device using WebOS some stores went practically crazy selling their inventory of HP Touchpads for around $100. A very good deal you may think but you need to consider that you are buying a piece of hardware with a dead Operating System. Well, according to AndroidCommunity there is a hope for those owners in a built of Android CyanogenMod that is currently in Beta stage. Once this port of Android is finalized it will guarantee at least couple of years of life to this wonderful piece of hardware.

Samsung Series 7, a new champion

Chippy at UMPCPortal is reporting about the Samsung Series 7 Tablet PC. The Crystalmark score that he is reporting is extremely high for a Tablet PC and even a laptop.

I have been following this platform since 2006 and we were happy if any of the TabletPCs or UMPCs had a score higher than 22000, the highest score that I was able to record was in the Evernote UMPC with an AMD Dual Core and was 40161. So I feel happy to see that we are getting into a decent performance in this portion of the mobile market.

iPad 2 WiFi location not working

Using an iPad has few challenges, like for example finding some help when things do not work how they supposed to. For example, my iPad stopped to show my location when I was connected via WiFi. Google showed me that it was a common issue reported in Apple's official forum but without an Apple's official answer. May be because Jobs still on medical leave and without him nobody else can determine if the issue is really an issue or simply that the user does not know how to use the iPad.

After a lot of digging, I found somebody in one of those fan forums that I'm not linking just because after applying the solution I could not find the link anymore explaining what to do. Simple, go to Settings, General, Reset, Location. After that, turn off the iPad completely, by holding the Power button for few seconds and then sliding the Off bar. Once you turn on the iPad, your WiFi location should work again.

The cause... Who knows...

Error S0a00

The error S0a00 is the Comcast equivalent to the DirectTV booting process that last less than 3 minutes and happens in both systems when the power fails and then it's restored back in few seconds. The only difference is that in Comcast this booting process can take a lot more time... 10 minutes... 20... Or even more. Sometimes you even have to call Tech Support to get it fixed. Comcast probably has other advantages over DirectTV but this, this is not one of them. Here in Florida short power failures are common because of the huge amount of lightning strikes during summer.

Update: I called Comcast and they were having some problems in my area. The signal was restored after 40 minutes. After that another power failure but this time I got the signal back in less than a minute.

Google+ for iPhone came and went

Yesterday many pages reported the release of Google+ for iPhone. The part that was not reported by many was that the application was so buggy, it crashed so many times, that in less than one hour Google was forced to release a second version of it trying to fix some of the problems. Unfortunately it seems that the second release was not good enough either because the application was retired from the Apple's AppStore in less than 12 hours from it release. Was Apple the one removing the application asking Google to fix it? Or was Google the one asking Apple to remove it to fix all the issues? Who knows...

Converting your iPad in an Atari

Is this a good idea? I'm nobody to answer this question because I have to confess that I never have played any of the games for this platform. But I have to recognize that everybody knows what is an Atari. So that said. The iCade is like some sort of cabinet armed with joystick and buttons that will help you to enjoy more than 100 Atari games.

Microsoft talks about Surface II

A video worth more than 1000 words. Here is the link.

W7 very slow copying to USB

Recently I got a WD Elements 160 Gb external HDD. Right on time because my RUVO MC was almost full so I needed to move few movies out of it. I connected the USB HDD and start moving the first 1.5 Gb movie. Something was wrong, a process that should not have taking more than few minutes now was taking more than 20 minutes. I did some research online and for my surprise found many users reporting the same issue since the release of Windows 7. There is not any fix from Microsoft so far but the good news is that I found following the above link in the wonderful Technet forum the solution.

How to fix this issue:

Disable Superfetch and Remote Differential Compression.

Superfetch can be disabled by;
Going to start > right clicking Computer > Click Manage > Choose Services and Applications > Services
Find "Superfetch" in the list, and right click > Properties > Change "Startup Type" to "Disabled"
Then Hit "Stop" then "Apply"

Remote Differential Compression can be disabled by:
Going to Start: Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features > "Turn Windows Features on or Off"
Uncheck Remote Differential Compression and Click OK.

Restart the computer after these changes.

Sound controlled by Tablet PCs

When you are in love with a piece of technology you will notice the presence of that technology in the most unbelievable places. That was the case of Linda, she went to a concert and she found herself surrounded by Tablet PCs that were controlling the sound of the event. Another proof that the time of Desktop PCs is gone.

Live.com better than ever

I was checking Skydrive in my iPad 2 and it was a nice surprise to see how good the other services offered by Microsoft at live.com were working in this Tablet. Of course, forget about uploading files to Skydrive from your iPad, but that's something that you should be asking to another Steve.

Skydrive now in HTML5

Well, this is a good news. Having Skydrive redone in HTML5 opens a window of opportunities for users of Tablet and other devices.

Apple is killing American jobs

Sorry Joe Weisenthal but I do not see anything stupid in what Jesse Jackson Jr. said in his speech to the congress. Probably the weakest part of the speech is when he blames the iPad for the bad judgement of the editorial houses and libraries failing to see that paper is a dying method of preserving and distributing information and they need to assimilate the new methods. I'm sure that there is a lot of work behind digitizing all the existent published materials without losing any quality. But the point that Jesse Jackson Jr. is making is that Apple on top of making an existent issue more critical is not contributing in the creation of jobs in America, they use the cheaper labor of slaves in the Communist China. Yes, I used also the word Communist and no because I still living in the cold war era but because we are talking about the same China that many times has taking positions against USA defending the impossible. I did not hear Jesse Jackson proposing anything but if his intention was to propose the highest taxes possible to companies like Apple that are taking our jobs out the American soil, then He has my full support.

I know that getting back all those jobs could bring other problems including highest prices but having those jobs will make our economy stronger and we will have money to invest in our own land. So yes again, I vote for having the highest taxes and fines for those companies.

Microsoft + Toyota = Sync?

Tomorrow there is going to be a Press Conference where these two giants, Microsoft and Toyota will announce something. Sync? I won't deny that just few months ago before I acquired a Toyota Prius this feature today only available in Ford cars made me spent few minutes checking my options in Fix Or Repair Daily cars. This feature available in Toyota cars will make a huge difference in what car to buy. This is going to be a killer combination!

Will the Transformers conquer the world?

Of course I'm not talking about those guys from the movies! I'm talking about the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. It seems that we are closer than ever to the release date of this device. Best Buy will sell the 16 Gb version for $400 and $500 for the 32 Gb. These prices and the fact that Asus was the company that took the world by surprise conquering the netbook market make me believe that finally we will see a real competition in this category of mobile devices.

Hard to find any benefit for users

Consumer Reports has analyzed the merge between AT&T and T-Mobile and their conclusion down not point to any clear benefit for consumers. The price will go up. The quality will go down until it reaches the level of in satisfaction of At&T users.

Monday, March 21, 2011

Very AT&T

Like I said yesterday, the switch to AT&T is the worse thing that can happen to T-Mobile customers. Here is a report about how AT&T is planning to force T-Mobile users to switch to AT&T. I'll be a T-Mobile user until that moment when my phone won't work any more. When that happens I'll cancel my account and move my number to another provider.

AT&T buys T-Mobile

It's like I waked up into a nightmare where you are being chased by a monster or a murder. I was a client of AT&T for all my phone requirements, land line and cellphone. And I cancelled both services because of the high prices and the most important thing because of the bad support service brought to me by this company. Now this company that the only thing has given me are bad memories, high blood pressure, headaches and penalties in cancellation fees is coming and buying my current cell phone service provider. Is not this a nightmare?

Toshiba Android Tablet At Amazon

It seems that Toshiba is preparing conditions to start selling the still unnamed Toshiba Android Tablet at Amazon. If the name still unknown the price still a huge question mark. And I said huge because we are used to see huge price tags from Toshiba and I do not expect to see a miracle in this case. The specs in this case are again a lot better than what we see in those Tablets made by Apple.

But I have one question to Toshiba: battery life? Yes, I know that we are talking about a replaceable battery but still, I'll appreciate if you dedicate at least two words in your huge product description at Amazon to tell me what is the battery life. Thanks.

WiFi Motorola Xoom confirmed

Motorola confirmed that the price for the Xoom with WiFi only and 32 Gb of storage will be $599! the same price than the iPad 2 with similar technical specifications. I said similar because the Xoom technically is better loaded. Like I have been saying if Honeycomb would have been a more mature OS, the fight against the iPad 2 could have end in a different way.

Consumer Reports presents the iPad 2

Consumers Reports posted at YouTube a video presentation where they show the iPad 2 and the competition. The well known institution warns consumers about other cheap tablets in the market saying that they do not compare with the iPad 2 and that they are cheaper but you end receiving what you paid for.

iPad 2 manufacturing cost

Today iPad Jailbreak posted the manufacturing cost of all version of the iPad 2. If this study is realistic then Jobs was bluffing when he was saying that the competency new how hard was to maintain the low price of the iPads. Well, for a company that is used to have profits of up to 200% to see a profit of 40% is hard. But 40% is profit and is not low.

Applications iPad 2

The iPad 2 has been in the market for virtually few hours and Apple is already rubbing under your nose adds for applications that will only work in the iPad 2 thanks to the dual core processor and a little bit better graphic chip on it.

So there is the need already to spend at least $500 t get the new iPad. Very Apple Style.

The real Steve Jobs

Recently a friend of mine that shares with me the same "admiration" for Steve Jobs sent me the link to this article published in one of the best known Webpage in the computer world.

Arrogant, selfish and inconsiderate are just few of the complements that Jobs received in this article. Unfortunately my English vocabulary to describe what I think about Jobs is not that rich as I would like.

Click in the link and see why I'm saying this.

Asus Eee Slate

The release of Asus Eee Slate seems like a suicide in a time where all is about Tablets with 10 hours of battery life. Thanks Asus for keep the platform alive. Next version try to reach at least 5 hours of battery and low the price up to the $600 range please.

Android keeps going up

Here is an interesting Chart.

RIM and Microsoft are losing terrain against Android and Apple is holding the territory thanks to the Army of fanboys but you can notice the tendency to go down too. To think that once we were looking into a chart like this, no long time ago, but it was the Microsoft line the one going up.

iPad 2: you will buy it no matter what we say

Definitely Conan O'Brian is absolutely right. No matter what we say the iPad 2 will be the next kid of the town. There are other tablets that are better but there is not a company with the punch needed to win the fight against Apple. That and the fact that Honeycomb still too immature for this fight.

But all this is not a reason for no telling Apple that we are not impressed at all with the iPad 2. And that's what is this Video about.

iPad 2 is official

The iPad 2 is official. What is in this new version that we have not seen already in other Tablet? Nothing. The presentation was all about Jobs ridiculing Microsoft and the TabletPCs. A Jobs whose presence was showing the marks of a battle that in my opinion is making him pay too much. I'm not to far from the reality saying that the majority of the press in there was because of him and not because of an iPad that this time was not showing anything new. And iPad that was what the original iPad should have been.

Core vs Dual Core

Android Guys has posted a very interesting note comparing the use of a Core Solo processor against a Dual Core in Tablets. The advantages of using a Dual Core are there including a 40% of saving of energy. But one more time... Apparently we are not ready yet for this technology.

SP1 for Windows 7

I just installed this weekend the SP1 for Windows 7 in my TabletPc Fujitsu P1610. It was not a big download, just around 60 MB. The installation did not take so long and the bad news is that I didn't notice any difference after the installation, what I suppose is not a bad news either.

Xoom at 1.5 GHz

For Some guys the 1 GHz Dual Core processor of the Xoom Tablet is not fast enough. So they overclocked to 1.5 GHz. How that will affect the battery of this machine? I don't know but I hope that this point is not that important for those speed maniacs.

Enspert E201 At Dynamism

The Enspert E201 is an Android Tablet running a 1GHz loaded with Froyo 2.2. For around 350 dollars you can take home a machine that is fully Google Certified.
