Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Teclast P10 Tablet, Economical And Useable

By Tim

This morning we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the Teclast P10 tablet. This one is a budget tablet but for everyday use it appears to be worth the money.

Although he mentions it being $99 in the video the best price I have found was over at Gearbest for $118, which is still dirt cheap for an Android 7.1 tablet with 2 gb RAM. Of course make sure to check out coupon codes and all the details at whatever site you visit.

So the basic specs are as follows:

● Android 7.1
Allows you to remain connected and productive
● Rockchip RK3368 1.5GHz Octa Core
Ultra-low-voltage platform and octa-core processing provide maximum high-efficiency power to go
● PowerVR SGX6110 GPU
Better and faster in playing games and watching videos than the previous generation
● 10.1 inch 10-point Touch Screen with 1920 x 1200 Resolution
Offers good experience for watching videos and browsing the Web. The 1920 x 1200 resolution boasts impressive color and clarity
● 2GB RAM 32GB ROM
Provides enough room for your use, can suit all your needs
● Dual Cameras for Photos and Face-to-face Chat
5.0MP AF rear camera + 2.0MP front camera

This seems to be a great home tablet ,especially for kids. It is well made and offers very decent performance at a very low price.

So let us proceed to the video…

This one is available at Gearbest for $118 currently.

That is all for now,

Tim

By Tim

We now have another review of the Mi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch notebook (okay you purists, laptop) This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and as usual I highly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel!

Sure we have had quite a few reviews on this one, but what the hell, one more full review is better than one too few.

This is a premium notebook with high end specs and considering the price, is a much better deal than many other high end  notebooks.

So all that being said, I will mention that you can find the other reviews I have posted by using the search function here or simply by selecting the category of videos on the left side of the screen if you are on a PC, so now let us get to the video…

You can find this product at this link.

That is all for now,

Microsoft Surface Book 2 Available Right Now, Price Starts at $1499

By Radu Iorga

While everybody is gearing up for Black Friday, companies are pumping out last minute launches and making products available. One of the high profile debuts is the one of the Microsoft Surface Book 2, that just became available for $1499 and up.

It’s been two years since the 2015 Surface Book, so it was high time for an update. Just like the original model, the newcomer is a premium laptop that has a detachable screen. It’s both a tablet and a notebook, but of course with higher end specs. You can also pick two diagonal sizes now. The basic model is a 13.5 incher with a generous 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution, plus it also uses an Intel Core i5-7300U dual core CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

Of course specs go higher than that, to a Core i7-8650U CPU, 8 or 16 GB of RAM and with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 card in the mix. 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB of storage are all here. The 512 GB Core i7 one goes for $2499 and the 1 TB model is $2999. If you want something bigger, there’s also a 15 inch Surface Book 2, with a 3240 x 2160 pixel resolution and it offers a GTX 1060 card, plus up to 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage.

 

It starts at $2499 and tops at $3299. The smaller unit weighs 3.4 pounds and the bigger model 4.2 pounds. Backlit keyboards are bundled and just so you know, the Surface Pen, Dial and other accessories are sold separately. The hinge mechanism is now stronger than on the first gen model and the metal case is smooth and well built. You can buy the Surface Book 2 here.

Microsoft patches Equation Editor flaw without fixing the source code

By Peter Bright

When a company like Microsoft needs to fix a security flaw in one of its products, the process is normally straightforward: determine where the bug lies, change the program’s source code to fix the bug, and then recompile the program. But it looks like the company had to step outside this typical process for one of the flaws it patched this Tuesday. Instead of fixing the source code, it appears that the company’s developers made a series of careful changes directly to the buggy program’s executable file.

Bug CVE-2017-11882 is a buffer overflow in the ancient Equation Editor that comes with Office. The Equation Editor allocates a fixed-size piece of memory to hold a font name and then copies the font name from the equation file into this piece of memory. It doesn’t, however, check to ensure that the font name will fit into this piece of memory. When provided with a font name that’s too long, the Equation Editor overflows the buffer, corrupting its own memory, and an attacker can use this to execute arbitrary malicious code.

Normally the work to fix this would be to determine the length of the font name and create a buffer that’s big enough to hold it. It’s a simple enough change to make in source code. If that’s not possible—there are occasional situations where a buffer can’t easily be made bigger—then the next best solution is to limit the amount of data copied to it, truncating the font name if it’s too long to fit. Again, this is a simple change to make in the source code.
