Time Again For The HiBook News! Yes I Am Selling The HiBook! (video)

By Tim

The HiBook has basically outlived its usefulness as a test bed and I need to find another new High End Cheap Tech tablet to carry on the work! (see how I subtlety mentioned our new YouTube Channel?)

The HiBook has served me well and I still use it to watch videos and play the very occasional game in Android. However, since what I do is test tablets/notebooks as servers, etc, it has gone well beyond its useful life although it can still get the job done. But since we need an infusion of stuff to test here, I need to sell it to get something else to test.

Of course if folks would donate a wee bit to the site here, I could keep the HiBook, but in reality, I would love to move on and test new stuff!

These little thin and light tablets are perfect these days for use by children and even adults who simply want to watch videos and surf the web. The dual boot feature is great because there are things you can do in Android that you can’t do in Win 10.

So all that being said, here is the latest video on the new channel and please do like and subscribe and share. Note here: this was all shot on the super cheap Blu Studio Energy 2 at 1080p and edited on Openshot in Win 10 on my Zotac Ci323 with an N3150 processor and 8 GB ram.

That is all I have for this evening,

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: Thinking Of Creating a Small YouTube Channel

By Tim

I have been considering this for some time now. But it is expensive to get started, but it can be done, even on boring and sub-standard equipment.

The first stage of course is getting this server back onto my home turf, meaning, a cable connect which is now going to happen shortly.

Step 2 is to purchase a decent, albeit slow in today’s world laptop/notebook, that can edit video files and be used at work for the same purpose. Yes, I can already edit files on my Zotac PC and even on the Chuwi Hi12, given the time to process. But I need something a bit faster and dedicated.

The tipping point might just be the sale of the HiBook tablet, which is currently not used at all right now. Yeah, I know that sucks, because it still works great! I did put it up for sale on craigslist and the first 3 respondents were as usual scammers.

Perhaps I will go with a giveaway? Not sure at this point. All I know is that I watched the original Die Hard movie on it last night and was once again reminded of how good of a little tablet it was!

I am selling the HiBook, but a few donations or some participation could change that. Besides I like the “HiBook News” name, it is distinctive and different!

That is all I have for now,

Tim

We Are Going To Be Giving Away The HiBook Tablet! We Just are Not Sure Of The Method…Yet

By Tim

Yes folks, the HiBook tablet has been tested in all sorts of ways here at HiBook Labs and we are simply out of things to test on it!

We have installed Linux on it, edited videos on it, run a server off of it for over a year and a half  in a VM AND in Android and also watched hundreds of movies and TV shows on it!  Personally I love this thing, but it does sit around lately not being used too often and it still works perfectly!

So I have decided to do some sort of giveaway to someone who really could use a handy 10.1 inch, dual boot, Windows 10/Android tablet in perfect working order.

Of course the test facility here at HQ will continue to be called HiBook Labs for the foreseeable future, so do not panic! But the nature of the giveaway will be determined by those who choose to register on this web site and actually come up with a suggestion or two!

Why yes, “what a novel idea you are thinking, I could write a post on this site and perhaps influence the outcome/method of this giveaway”.

Of course if you register and do not login or post, yeah, you get terminated, if you post a bunch of links (URL’s) you get removed. Simple enough?

Make sure you are registering on tabletserver.com and not another site that this may be shared with! (yes this will be shared on my other site, so just making sure you are registering for the correct web site!)

That is all I have at this time, register and write or suggest, no comments please, since most folks screw those up and they get dumped by the security protocols.

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
