The Teclast Tbook 16 Power has a few things going for it as far as I am concerned. It is an 11.6 inch tablet which puts it into the 12 inch class, it supports a stylus and it has a relatively good display resolution.

Occasionally I am a dumb-ass...especially when upgrading my PC.

So today I received my shiny new Intel Core Duo E6700 processor. It will make this server run much faster and increase my overall computing experience by roughly 20%.  2.66 GHz versus 2.13 GHz, oh happy day!

Oh wait, the dumb-ass wh…

Report: Google+ Photos to be separated from Google+

By Ron Amadeo

Back in April, Vic Gundotra, a senior executive at Google and the leader of Google+, left the company. Shortly afterward, reports surfaced claiming that Gundotra’s departure was part of a plan to back away from the original Google+ strategy of forcing users into the service and to drastically cut the division resources.

A report from Bloomberg claims that the first big service on the chopping block is Google+ Photos, one of the social network’s best features. Bloomberg says the service will be given “more autonomy” from Google+ and “may be rebranded” in order to pull in more people who otherwise wouldn’t use the services thanks to its association with Google+. Separating Google+ Photo from Google+ would seemingly turn it into a Flickr-style service—a standalone photo hosting site that would compete on features and storage options rather than the social network a person chooses to use.

Google+ Photos has a number of features that could help it stand out in the photo hosting space. It has a ton of cloud smarts, which Google calls “Auto-Awesome,” that can automatically tweak photos to look better and can combine several pictures into an animated gif. The one area that would seriously need improvement is the free storage amount, which sits at a paltry 15GB shared across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. The Yahoo-owned Flickr offers 1TB of storage for free.

A followup on running a Tablet based WordPress server.

wrench_gear-e14058243889031You can indeed run a small scale WordPress server on a tablet. If you couldn’t you would not be reading this. After about a month of running this site I have reached the conclusion that a small business with a fixed IP address from their cable company,(MediaCom offers this here in Kentucky) , could easily run their business site on a cheap Android tablet.

While you could run off of dynamic DNS, as I do when I am at home, you will have short outages during IP changes.

But a nice basic tablet, with specs at least as good as the ASUS HD7 MeMo pad will do just fine. Especially if the tablet is used as a dedicated server.  Of course if you are expecting 1000 hits per day, go ahead a get some hosting, but if you are looking at 10-50 visitors per day then a tablet is the way to go. Just today I found a site selling refurbished Asus HD 7 MeMo pads for $79, a pretty darned cheap server.

That’s my take on the subject for today. Take it for what it is worth. There are several articles posted on here on how to setup and run your android web server so I won’t bother repeating how to do it except to say, start with this one.

What type of Tablet do you own?

StatisticsI am rather curious as to what folks out there own as far as tablets.  So I figured I would just ask folks what they have and what you think about your Tablet.

Do you have Windows,  Android, iPad or perhaps some sort of Linux or other operating system, such as a Kindle?

Leave me some feedback, because I am always looking for input. I am looking to get a nice top end 10 inch class tablet and want to know what folks think.

Below you will find a poll you can answer. (it is also on the right half of the page for those viewing the entire site in landscape). There is also a comment section at the end of the post, feel free to comment.

Is the Me176X worth it?

Tim’s Tablet Web Site is Looking for Editors

If you are really into Tablets and WordPress perhaps you would like to write some articles for this site? All you need to qualify is a passing interest and a little patience, since occasionally the site is offline if I am traveling with my Tablet.

Yes, the site does run on a Tablet and isn’t just about tablets. But if you think you can contribute go ahead and register. Once registered, log in, edit your profile and create a post about why you want to be an editor here. Be creative. Write a review of your tablet, write something to convince me that you can contribute., just write something, then save it for review.  If you get an email from me, you are in, if not, don’t be discouraged.

Here is your chance to get in on the ground floor of something that will probably go absolutely nowhere, but what the hell. If nothing else it is a good way to learn about WordPress if you are new to it.

What I need are some other perspectives on Tablets. Software reviews, hardware reviews, etc. I am mostly a server guy, so I am running out of subjects to write about since this thing appears to be running fine and I won’t be tweaking it too much in the near future.

Day 2 Testing out Dynamic DNS Update App

test-tube-personToday is my second day of testing the Dynamic DNS Update app from Ice Cold apps and I am happy to report that it works just fine. It keeps the tablet “awake” and  the DNS updated at the interval I set, (every 10 min. ).

It uses very little in the way of resources and really doesn’t draw a great deal of battery. After 7 hrs of running the tablet server I was only down to 70% charge.

So I guess you could say that as of right now the Dynamic DNS Update app and the KSWeb app make for a perfect little tablet server for a small WordPress site.
