Not just a Printer but a pretty Central HUB

Jul 27, 2015

Status: Acknowledged

Looking around most workstation setups, it’s curious to see how in this day and age things remain still so scattered. Then you realize that of all peripherals, the printers are omnipresent and most-importantly – always connected. And when you consider the size of average printer, it’s amazing nobody yet thought of integrating greater multifunctionality within all that estate.Thus - instead of mostly unatractive bland space-grabbing boxes, why not make a well-designed USB 3 device which connects to a computer via a single cable and serves not only as a printer & scanner but...... as an attractive central connection point, which can also display important references and alerts?Image above conceptualises All-In-One: • Printer/ scanner• Appointments Display (with data pulled from Google or system calendar)• Powered stereo speakers (USB or BT)• Clock with Internet weather• Display for SD card content• Printer touchscreen commands• Notifications display• USB hub with 3-4 powered slots• SD/ multicard reader• MP3 player Considering the number of hardware pieces such device would replace, it could sell at several times the price of an average printer, thus hopefully justifying its production/ support costs.Just a thought – but I'd certainly jump to buy one or three:)

Re-examine audible alerts by Dell products.

Now that I am done getting my 2 year old back to bed after being woken up by loud beeping from my laptop due to a dead battery. I am reflecting on Dell's removal of audiable alarms on PERC cards some years ago that would alert the owner, particularly small business (20 or less employees), of their loss of data redundancy.Thus my idea is 2 parts:1) Make Dell products quieter by removing audiable alerts for issues on personal computers and laptops that are innocuous, or at the very least not going to result in a catostrophic loss of data.2) Bring back audiable alerts on PERC cards AND start implementing some sort of audiable alert on personal computers and laptops, for when a hard drive begins to start failing, hopefully giving the user a chance to backup their data.

Access Levels in the Cloud

Jan 6, 2015

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Make different access levels for the cloud. For example, if there is an organization using the cloud there could be a public access level, semi-private, and private levels. Maybe the business owners want some files to be only accessible to a few. It would be best if any number of levels could be used.

Slice battery

Dec 24, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

we recently began switching to dell. mostly becasue we liked the design of the 11 3000 2 in 1 and the 13 7000in our field we use a computer a great deal, no computer has enough battery life. we use solar generator kits from goal zero but they are as costly as the machines we buy. we would like to see a slice battery option and charger for the batteries. hopefully these batteries could snap onto the bottom of the laptops or ultrabooks and could power them and be easily interchanged if need be. adding a port to maybe charge smart phones from the batteries would be a plus. weight for us wouldnt be much of an issue since the computers are only carried a short distance.

Dell Sonicwall Specs

Nov 6, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Problem:  It took me over 1.5hrs to find out what TZ Series SonicWall supports Geo-IP filtering.Following sites do not show this security service and/or talk about it:1) finally found it at: the GEO-IP filter service option isn't shown link #3 is beyond me. All the documents I've read imply that SonicOS 5.8.1 has it included. Not true. It's only in the TZ210 series or NSA/NSA-E series.   IDEA:  Add GEO-IP Filtering Option on the COMPARE list.
