We need a real Business Laptop with a real 16:10 screen

Apr 23, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Dear Dell:I am CEO of a small company and what you would consider a "power user".  We have been buying Dell Latitudes for our company for many years. They were reliable professional no-frills laptops. I am sad to say I am forced to buy legacy 2010 Latitudes from Ebay because Dell NO LONGER MAKES a business version of their flagship business laptop! I'm not kidding.A Real business laptop should have:-a 4:3 or 16:10 screen-Be thin and light. Yes, this is possible now.-Have a real keyboard with real arrow keys and real function keys-Have good battery life/removable battery-Be dockableRead on:1.) Power users need REAL screens with vertical height. 16:9 screens are painfully short and make it hard to do real work. Work = Reading, Scrolling, Coding. Think about the new Microsoft Office that wastes the top 1/5 of the screen with an even bigger space-wasting ribbon. Do we really need LESS vertical space?  This [redacted by moderator] everyone even harder that are using toy laptops with 16:9 screens. Say goodbye to productivity in the American workplace.16:9 screens are a joke and are only being made so manufacturers can save $$ by making a smaller screen.Business users are not buying a laptop to watch movies! We would HAPPILY pay a premium to get a real business laptop with a REAL 16:10 (or 4:3) screen.NO- please don't tell me 16:9 screens are wider and that I should get with the times. A 16:10 screen can do everything a 16:9 screen can do - except that it can do MORE because the top hasn't been chopped off. Why on earth should people think a smaller screen is better? It's not!2.) Business users prefer REAL keyboards. The Latitude is the LAST computer on the planet that has a real keyboard (not these toy chicklet keys). Look at the beautiful keyboard from the Dell Latitude E6500/6400. A real business keyboard also has REAL FULL SIZE arrow keys and practically-sized function keys. Power users are using these keys constantly! Stop making them smaller!!!A new line of Latitudes came out this year (7000 series I think?). I was excited to see if Dell was smart enough to give it a REAL keyboard and a real 16:10 screen. Nope. Fake screen, fake keyboard, fake arrow keys. I guess these laptops are being designed for kids getting their first college dorm laptop. Or for people who play "Farm Ville" all day.Lenovo's new thin/light computers are beautiful.. but they FAIL on the keyboard, FAIL on the screen, and now some models even require a special button to make the F keys function normally. Who is buying these things? Farmville players!Apple, believe it or not, is the only manufacturer smart enough to retain the 16:10 screen on their laptops. Too bad they have the most ridiculously useless keyboards ever made. The F keys and arrow keys are almost non existent. If they were smart enough to include a real latitude-style keyboard, I would buy Macbooks running Windows 7. A no-brainer!Please, Dell, think about it. If you don't start doing it someone else will and you'll lose a considerable base of business customers.  Copying the "trends" of HP, Lenovo, etc is just making your laptops are bad as theirs. The "Average" users won't know the difference one way or another. They will buy whatever's at Best Buy so that Facebook works. BUT... the power users will see that there's ONE CLEAR FLAGSHIP CHOICE and you'll have a monopoly on this market.Please comment on this. We need a movement to bring back the REAL BUSINESS LAPTOP.My company already stopped buying new Latitudes.Dell, I am available for consulting if your Laptop Design teams need some inspiration and guidance.  I also give seminars and speak publicly to thousands of people a year at Fortune 500 companies. I would happily endorse the Latitude to these people if you were making a proper machine.Until then, we will be buying Legacy Latitudes on Ebay and paying engineering firms BIG BUCKS to modify the motherboards if the future requires us to do so.Sincerely,RP.

SWOT Analysis on Telecommunications

Mar 26, 2015

1 Vote

Status: New

In the modern times, technology is simultaneous to growth and development. These developments do not only reach western countries America and Europe. Even in Asia where developing countries are on the run to compete with westerners, technology is prevalent especially in Jakarta, Indonesia, Beijing, China, Tokyo, Japan and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. XL Axiata, a subsidiary of Axis Capital Group has released their SWOT analysis on the prevalence of telecommunications and technology in people’s lifestyle.                                                                   Strengths A telecommunications should identify the internal structures within the industry or company that are performing well or better than expected. The internal structures could highlight human resources, physical capital or elements within the company’s control. For example, the telecommunications strengths may highlight economies of scale, an engaged and active management team, high staff morale, a strong brand name, first-rate field equipment and sustainable business modeling.    With the fast pace of the modern world, telecommunications also find its strength in the continuous growth of technology, which in most reviews by experts will never go timid  and dull but will further develop as times go by.     Weaknesses Telecommunications weaknesses may highlight an ineffective Board of Directors, low broadcast frequencies, poor customer service, low signal strengths or a high overhead cost structure.   In other reviews, corroded cable lines, slow service and lackluster sales are three weaknesses that can hurt a telecommunications company. Company weaknesses are competitive deficiencies that place the company at a disadvantage in the marketplace. If corroded cable lines aren't replaced and slow service continues, for example, angry customers will switch to a rival telecommunications company that offers better services.   Opportunities Telecommunication opportunities may highlight a decline in competitors, a decrease in the cost of broadcast signals, technological advances, an increase in communication networks and channels, or new tax incentives. New technologies, increasing consumer interest and a decrease in competition are just a few external opportunities that can really help a telecommunications company in the long run. Opportunities are beneficial, outside events that a company can use to boost its existing strengths. A telecommunication company keen on rapidly adopting new technologies, for example, would highly benefit from immediately investing in new fiber optics the moment they're introduced in the marketplace, especially if they speed up service.   Threats Threats may highlight a shrinking economy, less demand for telecommunications services, an increase in health care costs, increased regulation or changes in the population.   As we all noticed, only a few telecommunications companies dominate individual countries. In most developed and developing countries, the maximum number of Telkom is 2-4 as it is very hard to compete with other companies who already planted their foundation in the industry.   Fraud companies which also produce counterfeited telecommunications products also pose as threat to the growth of telecompanies which offer legit and quality assured services. This issue is rampant mostly in Asian countries.   To learn more about us, please see this link: http://www.yelp.com/topic/la-crescenta-montrose-the-jakarta-globe-axis-capital-group-telecom-purchase-xl-axiata

The Koyal Group Info Mag Review på Forskerne i stand til at styre flyvningen af 'cyborg biller' for første gang

Mar 26, 2015

1 Vote

Status: New

  Forskere har kontrolleret luften bevægelser af frit-flyvende insekter ved hjælp af en radiosender og en miniature rygsæk af elektronik båret af "cyborg biller".   Biller blev gjort at tage ud og lander, flyver til højre eller venstre, og endda at hover i midten flyvning afhængigt af radio kommandoer, siger forskerne.   Hvis teknologien kan være yderligere raffineret, det ville være muligt i fremtiden at bruge flyvende insekter som miniature drones fyldt med bittesmå elektroniske sensorer for flyver over og søge vanskeligt terræn, de sagde.   Selv om elektronik tidligere har været anvendt til at kontrollere bevægelser af insekter, siger det menes at være den første videnskabelige demonstration af bruger radioen kommandoer til at styre de fine antenne bevægelser af frit-flyvende biller, forskerne.   "Biller er ideel undersøgelse fag, fordi de kan bære forholdsvis tunge nyttelast," sagde Hirotaka Sato af Nanyang Technological University i Singapore, der forskede med kolleger på University of California, Berkeley.   "Vi kunne nemt tilføje en lille mikrofon og termisk sensorer til applikationer i eftersøgnings-og redningsaktioner missioner. Med denne teknologi, kunne vi sikkert udforske områder ikke tilgængelige før, som små kroge og sprækker i en sammenstyrtet bygning,"Dr. Sato sagde.     Den undersøgelse, offentliggjort i tidsskriftet aktuelle biologi, involveret udlæg i en lille mikroprocessor og en indbygget trådløs modtager og sender til bagsiden af kæmpe blomst Bille, som er seks centimeter lange og vejer otte gram-næsten det samme som et pund-mønt.   Den komplette indretning er drevet af en 3,9 volt lithium batteri og er forbundet til seks mikro-elektroder implanteret i insekt wing-foldning coleopteran muskler, som i to århundreder blev anset for at være irrelevant for flyvning, men som nu synes at være involveret i navigation, videnskabsmændene opdagede.   "Siden 1800-tallet mente dette coleopteran muskel funktion udelukkende i wing folde. Vores trådløse system tillader os at optage neuromuskulære bevægelser i naturlige, free flight, så vi se nu, denne muskel er også brugt til drejning,"sagde Dr. Sato.   Test i et laboratorium og indendørs flyvning har vist, at blomsten biller kan gøres til at sno sig til højre eller venstre samt foretage en nøje kontrolleret, retvinklet drej som følge af radio kommandoer sendt fra en menneskelige operatør, forskerne rapport.   Signaler, der sendes til beetle hver tusindedel af et sekund stimuleret den for at tage ud, drej til venstre eller højre, hover i midten flyvning og lander igen. Kæmpe blomst biller var løsgående og kunne flyve helt gratis, sagde de.   "I vores tidligere arbejde ved hjælp af biller i fjernstyrede fly, vi viste fremragende kontrol af fly indledning og ophør, men forholdsvis rå kontrol af styretøj under fri flyvning," sagde Michel Maharbiz af University of California og principal investigator på undersøgelsen.   "Vores resultater om flyvning muskel tillader os at vise for første gang et højere niveau af kontrol med frit-flyvende biller. Det er et storartet partnerskab mellem teknik og videnskab,"sagde Dr Maharbiz.   "Dette er en demonstration af hvordan bittesmå elektroder kan besvare interessant, grundlæggende spørgsmål for de større videnskabelige samfund. Biologer forsøger at registrere og studere flyvende insekter typisk havde at gøre med emnet tøjret. Det har været uklart, om tøjring blandede sig med insekt naturlige flyvning bevægelser,"sagde han.     Tidligere undersøgelser har vist, at det er muligt at kontrollere bevægelser af walking insekter, så det kan være muligt at kombinere både at ingeniør cyborg biller kan flyve over vanskeligt terræn og derefter landing til at gøre en mere grundig søgning af mindre rum.

Cell phone / mouse for computer

Status: New

For business or personal trip, I always carry a laptop and a cell phone.  I have had several wireless mouse(s), but I have broken the small USB connector several times.  BUT, if you had an app that would link your cell phone to your laptop/computer and use your cell as a mouse, you would never need a traditional mouse again.  For travel this would be perfect.  I use the mouse pad on my Dell laptop all the time, I am so used to using a mouse at work, its a hard transition.

Alienware graphics amplifier proper desktop gaming edition

Same as normal amplifier expect it supports flagship desktop GPU in 2-way SLI/CrossFireX (single chip cards only so no double Titan Z or R9 295X2, alienware is meant for regular gaming not setting world records), desktop Intel K or X CPU (AMD equivalent) and a 1000 watt 80 Plus Gold PSU (to give you plenty of overvolting and future upgrade headroom).

Status: Acknowledged

This desk look like a normal desk but can be used for everyday school activity. All the students in the classroom will have their own desk and the teacher will have one big desk. Keep in mind all these desk are touch screen so it will make it much more enjoyable for everyone. On his desk the teacher is able to send work to the students so no paper will be used. The student will also be able to type on here and able to take test. Whatever is on the students desk can be shown on the projected screen. Not only will this make learning easier and fun but it will also make it cheaper for the schools due to not having to pay for paper because everything can be done online.
