Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: The Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop

By Tim

Today we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop. This is a solid gaming laptop, but has a serious flaw when it comes to the keyboard. It also happens to be quite expensive at roughly  $1280 currently for the config tested in the review.

It is available with an Nvdia GTX 1050 or GTX 1060 GPU. Thermals are not an issue at all, but fan noise is rather high and the choice by Xiaomi to add some macro buttons in a poor area of the keyboard  makes for some issues.

Those issues aside, as far as game performance goes, this is a very solid performer.

So all that being said, make sure to visit the TechTablets YouTube channel and subscribe if you want to see a wide variety of tech items tested and reviewed. Now let us proceed to show you that promised video!

As usual make sure to check out our new YouTube channel for the occasional video worth watching!

You May Have Already Heard, Google Has Software To Allow Your Phone To Make Calls and Sound Human. Is This a Good Idea?

By Tim

A few days ago at Google i/o 2018 Google showed off its new Duplex software. This software allows the phone to make calls, sounding incredibly human and book appointments, etc. No, it is not included on any current version of Android or Chrome or even the Home devices…yet.

The obvious reason is that it it is still being worked on. It is however,  extremely “human” sounding! That unto itself is wonderfully cool, AI is progressing nicely. Obviously it isn’t perfect just yet, but light years ahead of Apple, etc.

So you are thinking, what is the big deal here? This seems amazing! That is why I created a new video pointing out the major weakness with this entire concept. You are thinking what could that be? Proceed at once to the mirror my friends, WE are the issue! Humans are lazy, they do not usually tweak their phone settings nor computer settings until shit goes to hell in a handcart!

The plethora of things that could go wrong and according to Murphy’s Law “Will Go Wrong” can only be imagined!

In the video below, you will find me merely skimming the surface of all the bad things that might happen. The reality is the issue could be far greater.

So watch the video, then like and subscribe and then send us a donation so we can keep this server online!

That will be all at this time, comments and shares on the video are appreciated!

Lenovo Patents New Laptop With Foldable OLED Display

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo has been toying with the idea of a flexible device ever since two years ago, when they came up with a prototype that turns into a bracelet, phone and tablet. Now they want to go further, having just patented a laptop with a foldable OLED display. You can see several sketches of it below.

We’ve seen TVs that are rolled up like a yoga mat and handsets able to flex down the middle, but a laptop? That’s new! We see the extra flexible bit appearing on the side of the screen, like a sort of window to prop open from the left side, using a special hinge. Lenovo’s documents mention a flexible OLED screen and the patent was filed with the WIPO, regarding an “Electronic Device With Flexible display with multiple viewing regions”.

It was published on April 19th 2018 and if you continue to look further within the documents, you will discover that the two sides of the screen open up like windows, expanding the space even more, like book covers. The screen can also be folded backwards and a 360 degree image can thus be projected for the user. It can be ideal for school work, presentations in the office environment and more.

 

It’s not very clear if all areas of the screen are touch sensitive or not. There’s also a camera and microphone embedded in both folding screen parts. The patent also notes that the same technology can be applied to smartphones or other devices. An extra image of the product shows that the flexible screen can be separated from the keyboard. These components are connected via special connectors (I know it sounds weird) and users and expand the display as they please.

You will be able to select the user mode, like a standard mode, presentation mode, tablet mode, dual monitor and more.

A Few Videos Worth Watching: The Meko Precision 2-in-1 Stylus, Inexpensive, But Can Get the Job Done!

By Tim

If you own a smartphone, tablet or most any other touch screen device there are situations where a stylus might be handy. Obviously you can pay big bucks for one and get 1 billion levels of pressure sensitivity, (I might have exaggerated a bit),  but if you simply want a simple way to point and click and take notes, the device in the title might be for you!

We have 2 videos tonight, one from Andrew of at AMDTech and  the second one from myself, because I thought this worth sharing from my perspective. So first of all you can get this stylus at Amazon with a 20% discount using Andrew’s store link! That makes it a dirt cheap foray into the stylus market and of course that is why I am also doing a short video on it.

This product might be rather useful on my Hi12 tablet just to keep fingerprints off the screen and write some notes here and there!

So let us move on and get to those videos…first up is Andrew and make sure to subscribe to his channel for some great video content.

Next of course is my less polished review pointing out why this is such a great deal for folks that never thought of using a stylus and want some High End Cheap Tech!

That is all we have for this time, make sure to subscribe to all channels mentioned above and like and share, etc, etc.

Tablet Shipments Register 35% Quarterly Decline in Q1 2018; Education Segment Goes Up

By Radu Iorga

TrendForce has a new report out, that spells doom and gloom for the tablet market. It’s all about the quarterly evolution of the slate market, which has been reported to have declined by 35% in Q1 2018. Still, there’s a glimmer of hope in the education market.

The info comes from the above mentioned firm and their figures show that only 31.29 million units were shipped in Q1. As far as the second quarter goes, the tablet shipments are expected to grow by 11.4% quarterly, courtesy of the education market first and foremost. The year on year shipments growth could become positive and the growth may be 1.5% in Q2 2018.

Tablets are no longer the focus of the market, but their low prices have helped a few vendors increased their market shares. Apple launched a new 9.7 inch tablet over the first quarter, priced at merely $299 for students and this boosted the whole education segment. Chrome OS devices have also been targeted towards the education segment and also helped with growth. By the way Chrome OS is also on tablets now, so that may also provide an increase.

Now to mention Microsoft tablets, which are expected to come in all shapes in sizes, now that there’s Qualcomm action with Windows 10 S. Chinese brands performed OK in Q1 2018 and Huawei gained market share. Over the first three months of the year, Apple claimed first place with 9.11 million iPad units shipped, reaching a market share of up to 29.1%, 1.2% points up from the same time from last year.

The iPad shipments are expected to grow by 12% quarterly in Q2 2018 driven by the release of the new iPads. Samsung is placed second, with 5.37 million units shipped. Huawei shipped 2.53 million units and Amazon shipped 2.45 million. Lenovo has been increasing a lot, with an aggressive expansion and recording 2 million shipments even in the off
season.

With the recent news that convertibles may just save the tablet market and now the education devices also regarded as saviours, we may actually see a turnaround in a quarter or two.
