If More People Had Brains, LogiTabs would be the rule and Apple and Samsung would be lowering prices on Tablets.

I have written about my super-D-duper LogiTab before and it just surprises me that most folks just don’t get it.  You DO NOT need, in most cases, a super, incredibly thin, incredibly fast tablet.  Most people, yes, this probably means …

Chuwi V10HD Dual Boot Tablet Officially Announced, Comes With Windows 8 and Android

By James A.

chuwi-v10hd-dual-boot

The concept of a dual boot tablet is not new, but the Chuwi model below is and it comes with Windows 8 and Android. The device is named Chuwi V10HD and it appears that its maker is using the relaxed Windows licensing to release a rare kind of product.

This dual boot slate can switch easily between operating systems and it comes with a 10 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display, as well as 3G and WiFi connectivity. The product can pass from one OS to the other easily and relies on an Intel Bay Trail 64 bit processor, clocked at 1.83 GHz and accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. The tablet is priced at just $276, that sounds very nice and one aspect I’m curious about here is the battery capacity.

We also know this model has 3G supports, WiFi, Bluetooth and its design is actually pretty nice, with glass at both the front and the back, which would make it an uniquely designed slate. Fingers crossed for this product getting to Europe or US soon!

Yahoo killing off Yahoo after 20 years of hierarchical organization

By Peter Bright

Yahoo’s homepage as it appeared in 1996 with the directory front and center.

As part of an ongoing effort to streamline and focus its business, Yahoo today announced that it was retiring its namesake product.

In January 1994, Jerry Yang and David Filo, graduate students at Stanford University, created a hierarchical directory of websites, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web.” In March of that year, they gave it the name “Yahoo!,” for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.”

In the early days of the Web, these categorized, human-curated Web listings were all the rage. Search engines existed, but rapidly became notorious for their poor result quality. On a Web that was substantially smaller than the one we enjoy today, directories were a useful alternative way of finding sites of interest.

Why Asus makes the best stuff out there…and why I keep buying it.

Asus_A7VI bought my first Asus product in 2000, an Asus A7-V motherboard, from which I am still running my Linux pc at home (and from which I am writing this article, because a keyboard beats a touchscreen keyboard any day of the week).

I now run this server on an Asus MeMo Pad HD7, which is by far the best deal on a tablet that anyone, anywhere can buy. It’s fast,  has decent cameras and has zero issues. The bottom line is that they make really, really good stuff! I will admit that I was disappointed that the new Memo Pad 7 didn’t have decent cameras, but it is still a great product at a decent price.

There are tons of bleeding edge products out there but for bang-for-the-buck, Asus is the Honda of digital products.
I have pushed my little HD7 to the absolute limit of reasonable use and even running a web server it has never failed to disappoint me.

asus-transformer-pad-tf103cThat’s why my next PC will be a Transformer Pad or Transformer Book. Not an iPad, not a Samsung and not any Microcrap device.

Of course I would certainly appreciate some feedback on what folks think about the Transformer Pad/book series. What are the upsides and what are the downsides? Let me know because frankly I need to know before I upgrade again, since I tend to keep stuff for upwards of 10 years before moving on. Feel free to add your feedback via comments, on Google+ or via the poll below (“other” answers are saved).

What do you think of the Asus Transformer Pad/Book Products?
