Today’s Hi12 Report! This Thing Is Still Fantastic After More Than a Year!

By Tim

So today I decided it was time for another video for our new YouTube Channel on High End Cheap Tech. The video went well but it took more than 3 hours to process the video due to the idiot (me) operating the keyboard here.

But I finally got it done and here I am sharing it, although somehow about 4 hours of my day has gone into the toilet.  I won’t go into the issues, although a power failure killed the first edit on the Zotac PC. Yeah, we can’t plan for those now can we?

I also found a way to shoot nice steady screen shot video at 1080p using the worst phone mount ever created, but it did get the job done.

So all of that being said, there is one minor correction in the video and that is the voice over should mention that I use the Hi12 to EDIT, not shoot all the videos I do for work. The camera’s on most inexpensive tablets are horrible, the camera on my old BLU Studio Energy 2 is still quite good!

So let us get right to the video in question and as usual, please like it, please leave comments and please subscribe and share!

In a few minutes we will have another video worth sharing from Andrew over at AMDTech on the HP Envy X2 ,Win 10 on ARM 2 in 1 notebook.

That is all for the moment,

Tim

New Video On The Channel and Also Some Humorous Idiocy!

By Tim

Tonight I decided to shoot an intro to a video with me as the featured person. I do not like being on camera, because in general I believe that what folks need is information. But being that all other YouTuber’s tend to spend far too much time on camera I thought I would throw myself to the wolves and be on camera for a short period as an intro.

So I short the first portion of the video and then began installing Linux Lite 3.8 onto the Zotac here as a Virtual Machine (VM) and got ready to do some video editing back in Linux to see what the differences were between Openshot on Win 10 and in Linux.

A quick note here, since I do not shoot selfies, I had never used the front camera on the Blu Studio Energy phone and was quite pleased with how well the video came out in low-light conditions! Not bad for a budget phone 5 mp camera at 720p!

Now here is the humorous idiocy. I edited a video for test purposes at first and I got no sound! Are you kidding me, no sound? I have run this same distro in earlier versions on the HiBook and the Hi12 and never got no sound!

So I proceeded to read and install and play with the audio settings on Linux. After roughly an hour or so it hit me… yeah I can be a dumb ass, I was using the HiBook to watch videos on YouTube while installing Linux Lite on the Zotac and had the audio jack from the speakers plugged into the HiBook. Lights ON! PC’s don’t have internal speakers like tablets!

So moving on I finished the video, played about with one transition and was rewarded with the same quality video I am used you which you can view below.

So below you will find the latest video on the channel. Please watch, click like and subscribe, after all who knows what stupidity I might be involved with next?

That is all for the evening,

Tim

The HiBook News: We Are Back On Cable! Uh, Well Not The Server Just Yet.

By Tim

So without any help from an outside source we now have cable in my new apartment. It certainly isn’t the fastest, but with roughly 30+ GB  down loads and 17+  GB uploads it is pretty decent.

It is nice to have essentially no data limits again and not have to depend on my phone for internet connectivity.  Of course we still need some help on this site so always make sure to click those donate buttons!

Of course Mediacom stuck us with a Hitron modem/wireless router and it isn’t exactly up to snuff. I am going to ask them for a Cisco modem. Much faster and then I can use my TP-Link router to it’s full extent, but that is for another day.

I am just happy to be able to watch YouTube at full HD res and to be able to use multiple devices at once. We will be adding a video or two in the next few days and hopefully we can begin to get folks to check out the new YouTube channel. I know, there isn’t much there now at all, but you can’t have a lot of videos until you make the first few, now can you?

I did use the Hi12 all evening to watch a few TV episodes that I needed to catch up on and it worked great. No hiccups on WiFi N  (2.4 gHz) and the Zotac here is connecting at a fairly steady 392-433 mb/s on WiFi ac (5 gHz).

So that is all I have for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Tim Rambles On About Stuff That Just Plain Works!

By Tim

Tonight we have a somewhat long video that adheres to my tradition of crappy videos, but offers up info that is actually useful, without the frills, nifty background  nor any real plugs for anything, except of course the HiBook site donations page.

This was all shot on what one would consider sub-standard equipment but if you watch you will get the point. You don’t need all the latest tech to get the job done!

I am not saying that the latest tech isn’t cool, but I simply try to remind folks that there are ways to cut your tech costs by not being sucked into the latest tech frenzy.

This was all shot in terrible lighting, on a BLU Studio Energy 2 phone that is what I use at work to shoot videos on all our cars  almost everyday. Obviously outdoor shooting is a huge advantage, but I have not yet yielded to the temptation to get a slightly larger phone with a better camera, because I simply love the 5000 mAh battery and AMOLED screen on this phone and, yeah, it just plain works.

So all that being said below is my latest crappy video!

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News: Edition Number 990 Or Thereabouts…This Episode: Not A Whole Lot To Report Except…

By Tim

Wow, the title left ya’all hanging didn’t it? Yeah, there really isn’t anything new on the tablet server front since it is still sitting on a large scale shared hosting platform until I can get my cable connected.

However I can still report that the old Chuwi HiBook is still the best overall portable device I own due to its size, speed and usefulness along with decent battery life.  The faster RAM after a BIOS tweak really does make it quite a bit snappier than the Hi12, which of course still has the far superior display and of course that huge 11600 mAh battery, but lots of little annoying glitches, such as not being able to tweak the BIOS!

Both of these devices are still available. Although for the most part you can only find the HiBook Pro  with a super hi-res 2560 x 1600 screen and larger battery, both of which are a bonus! The HiBook Pro is a steal right now at $182!

Lately though I am thinking that once I get cable back online I might just opt for a 7-8 inch super cheap tablet with Windows 10 and see what I can do with it as a server.  I think I have done all I can with the current smaller 10.1 inch HiBook to prove it’s value.

So that is all the news I have for today except for the fact that it is too damned cold outside here! But that will be gone by tomorrow and the world will be right again.

That is all,

Tim
