just to add to all of the above: surge protected power strip, and no worries. all the talk about theft is just that. protect yourself and your stuff. been on the road for 13 years now, and no problems but blown apple power adapters (sensitive to voltage surges in places with 240 and poor wiring). but even in someplace like Nepal, you can get parts. happy trails...
A manufacture did! The S4 that's docked in my living room is the desktop for that area.
My Galaxy S4 replaced a desktop, and when not used that way I can put it my bag. Come on Bill, there's an elephant in the room!
just buy syncmate and get over it.
Ten years ago I was overnighting in a Starbucks parking lot to send my work in. I was one of many living in vehicles and roaming the US, doing a bit of work here or there. Most of the venues mentioned here were our links to the internet - to our bread and butter. But that's nothing new around the globe, most of the under-developing part of the world has been going to community wifi centers for a long time. I'm in Nepal now, and there is a cybercenter on almost every block within the Kathmandu valley (mostly filled with students). But the sad thing is this: America has not progressed to this point: where even the poor can afford an internet connection in the home, and can certainly find an affordable cyber center within walking distance.
Exactly - in fact, I am typing this on my Galaxy Note II docked to a BT keyboard and mouse + a cheap HD monitor - love it, and with all costing less than a new 128gb iPad. Great for email and reading
Have not seen this problem, but I have a problem with external mouse not scrolling. It's a registered bug in the database, closed, with a patch - but I have no idea what that means or when/if Samsung will roll that out - ha!
I'm using my Galaxy Note 2 as a desktop computer in the den, and if there were a cheaper chinese version with like specs, I'd put one in every room that has a HDMI monitor sitting idly by - but what I gather from this experiment is that Apple needs to build in telephony to all its computers, or I'm going to replace my MBs and Airs with cheaper phones, and use android devices for everything but 'real' work.
near 0 proof: my wife, an employee, did not even know she was using windows 8 after they rolled it out.
The World Bank has already rolled out Win8 to enterprise machines, via Dell hardware, and the machines boot into the desktop. So learning curve is near 0. Based on that, I doubt much trouble in the enterprise over this.
Disease, weather, and lack of energy have plagued humanity since we all crawled from the slime, or peeked from the cave, or evolved however we did. I think we can deal with it.
Hardly channel surf at all these days, the content in "channels" rots. But for gaming, see the new Wii U interface; it's a tablet.
agreed, in fact perhaps this is mentioned: iPhone 4s DOES NOT = siri. my phone consumes more data now because of iCloud pumping larger photos and videos which I could never do with my old 3g.
As a retired IT manager of 25 years... albeit I was a dino even a decade ago, I don't agree with this assessment. 1) I was never aloof, always super friendly to all, and made my mark by being open with non-IT folks, going the entire 9 yards to explain and communicate - YET- 2) I don't think I was all that successful. I am not sure non-IT folks ever understood (or could) no matter what the effort, and 3) this gained me no respect within the IT community, which would have rather had me keep my mouth shut and spend my time helping them get ahead instead. It was a rough situation.
