The problem with caching as done by Silk is that the (purely) theoretical speed benefits to the user are all lost on the niche user of this $200 product. It's a twist on a well worn axiom, in this case that the caching already taking place at the device is enough as far as where this niche user goes, and for the advanced user looking for an accelerated experience, Silk style caching won't be enough. It's ALL about data collection, and unless Amazon can make everyone...
True. Anyone who thinks that most people think about these products the way posters on forums do is seriously delusional. People that know from 40% to 200% of what we do comprise 10% of the tablet market if that, any size or power. Very few people know or care about anything except if they'll get their money's worth. They care not about HTML5 or HTML55, or anything except if it works OK. These will sell or not sell based on what their neighbors say is great or...
SDW, I get this often. I'm fairly certain (for me) it's not battery or cord related but a power management issue. Resetting the power manager helps for a while until it happens again a day or a week later. Try it. Unplug and remove battery. Hold down power button for 5 seconds. Plug in cable and wait until the lights show it is functioning, then put the battery back in. At least for me it always starts charging/recognizing the battery.I'm extremely gun shy about...
They're just temporarily halting development. They've been ordered to first help with the 2,142 more flash virus/trojans discovered over the weekend and then they'll get back to making the perfect conduit for mobile infections and take overs.
Well it's a double irony because A) NYCers either hate such things or are totally numb to them. Gotta play it like Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and aim it at the tourists. And B) It'll be about the 1,524th tallest non-building object in Herald Square. Plus we'll have in covered in grafitti by 4 AM. Way to location scout, Mr. B!
Yes, and also for one-handed use on a subway or bus during a commute. The 10" tablets only get pulled out pretty much when they get a seat, the smaller e-readers less so. I strap-hang with my iPod touch and wouldn't commute with a substitute that I couldn't navigate with the same hand that was holding it. Quite a specific niche I know, but... : )
The main reason Archos tablets will never succeed on any scale larger than their current one (smaller than miniscule) is that now they are selling to a market that is used to the customer service experience provided by Amazon, B & N and Apple, and that's not a reference to the "we'll fix it if it breaks" customer service. Most older Archos products are now doorstops because they sold them like radios or mp3 players at best, and Archos' support presence was like that of a...
I'd almost forgotten about the Lenovo, and with good reason: it still hasn't shipped, and I've yet to be able to fool with a display model to see if it's a yea or nay for $200. It could very well turn out to be a great deal but they won't be able to compete with the B & N kiosks with piles of in-stock Nook tablets being demoed. If the A1 doesn't show up just a few days after B & N loads does, in 10 days, they might as well call it off. B & N are so saturated and have...
It's like the Yankees taking legal action against Baltimore because they just signed a great hitter.Or Google offering unlimited free email accounts in the face of pay what others can afford to offer?I'm confused. The only thing that is clear to me is that Schmidt must be seriously worried to override whatever concern he may have had about Google and himself coming off like a completely unsympathetic character in this story.
No they're not. We'll tell you how to arrange them. Just kidding. Yes, unless someone can point out to me the switch you can flip, how could I possibly use a system that doesn't let me view my documents exactly as I already organized them?
