xps 18 with active display

Oct 19, 2014

2 Votes

Status: New

I am a student and I love my XPS 18.  The only thing I would change on it is for it to have an active display so it can use the wacom type pens.   Trying to draw or take notes in a reasonable amount of time with the capacitive stylus is impossible.  With the active display pen I could do all my notes and homework with the computer and go completely paperless.

TactX Peripherals

Oct 19, 2014

2 Votes

Status: New

I think that the TactX peripherals from Alienware should have a few changes. I feel that the mouse and keyboard should have the morph and pulse options in the AlienFX control panel. The keyboard should also have a couple more lighting zones, kind of like the keyboards on the Alienware laptops. I also think it would be awesome it the TactX headset had customizable lighting effects.

Ericsson, Facebook and XL Axiata boost app efficiency

Oct 21, 2014

Developing Telecoms - Facebook and Ericsson claim to have developed a methodology that will improve app performance by as much as 70%.   The companies have cooperated under the internet.org partnership between Facebook and six other firms aimed at driving internet connectivity in emerging markets. It has the stated goal of providing internet access to the two-thirdsa of the world’s population that remains unconnected.   Chris Daniels, Vice President, Internet.org, Facebook says: "We have a model for improving network performance that can be applied globally by mobile network operators. This will help ensure we have more efficient use of existing network capacity and resources, which is the key to delivering on our mission to close the connectivity gap."   The methodology can reportedly measure and optimize network performance, increasing efficiency. The joint project developed a framework for evaluating user key performance indicators (KPI) based on simulated Facebook application use cases using a test agent and correlated these KPIs with network statistics. Through this process, user-impacting issues were identified and addressed throughout the network.   The resultant optimizations improved app coverage significantly – the number of connections completed within three seconds improved up to 70%, with time to content also reduced by 70%. Upload time improved by 50%.   The test project was carried out on the network of Indonesian operator XL Axiata. In Indonesia, 75% of users are on 2G GSM/EDGE networks, yet the country has the fourth-largest Facebook user base in the world. Traffic rose by 142% on XL Axiata’s network in 2013, while more than half of its 62.9 million subscribers are data users.   Hasnul Suhaimi, Chief Executive Officer XL Axiata says: "Recently the use of data services in Indonesia has increased significantly and is expected to continue into the future. We believe app coverage is essential and correlating Facebook application use cases with network-wide statistics has proven to be an innovative and efficient way to detect and address network optimization opportunities."   Facebook and Ericsson are among the founding members of internet.org.

I like your site. I make great use of the favorites page (with respect to hardware ordering). What would be even better is if you would let the customer add their own "standard configurations" to the site. With business trends changing spo rapidly these days it is really a time savere to be able to go to th site and just click on what I need and then just modify the quantity.

BIOS Update

Oct 20, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

Dell Dimension 9200. Support ended. In Spring this year as recommended I updated the BIOS to the  recommended one by Dell : Version 2.53.  I discover now that that BIOS version interdicts any boot up from USB keys and or from CD DVD. Only internal boot is admitted without telling, even if BIOS set-up has been done for USB  for example. This makes a serious downgrade of my PC and exposes it to disaster, since a heavy virus failure has no remedy, with no external access possible.  I cannot utilize my ShadowProtect bootable recovery disk containing the image of the PC for recovering files or the full PC, neither the bootable Norton Recovery key can be used. In case of heavy virus attack, I can just scrap the motherboard. It appears as  a serious error in the 2.5.3 version of BIOS. It seems to me that a patch is needed to the BIOS code to make USB and or CD-DVD fully bootable again , with wide communication to the users for them to change. If you leave things like now it is like killing a large number of PC, Dell being a well appreciated PC maker. there are a number here around in small enterprises etc.. Will, please Dell solve urgently this problem? Thanks in advance.  Giancarlo

New Accessories for Computer

Oct 20, 2014

Status: New

Dell,         The following are few accessories if present will be verymuch useful. These ideas come to my mind recently. 1) People nowadays use many USB memory sticks, memory cards.  If there is a small sliding tray in the cabinet, these things cane placed there.  Myself and many people use the table drawer to keep these things along with other items. Many times these things get mixed up and finding them is time consuming.  A small sliding tray in cabinet will be useful for storing small devices. 2)  A small LED light panel on top of the monitor. This light panel can have the extension, bend capability on a swivel, similar to podium mike.  This light panel be covered with soft light shade to avoid hurting eyes.  This will be verymuch useful during video conferencing where more light will give clear image.  This can also be used as a reading lamp.   This lamp can have brightness control. When not in use this lamp can be slided behind the screen to be not visible. 3)  A clock dial on the computer screen. There is a real time clock running in the computer.  That information can be  fed to the screen even when the Operating system is not running. Then the LCD screen is like digital clock in the home. This may need some hardware changes.   When OS is running a screen saver can also do this job.  This a value addition to the computer. - voxmu.

Improved customer service.

Dell needs to improve internal communications between departments, especially sales and finance. I recentry financed a Dell laptop (May). Initialy the shipping dept. sent it to the wrong address even though I gave explicite instrucktions where to send it. After quite some time I received the laptop but not the mouse and external hard drive I ordered. These 2 items were sent to the same wrong address as the laptop even though they were shipped after I had finally received the lap to at the right address. some time later I did receive the mouse but no hard drive which I have yet to receive, it is now October. In the meanwhile Dell Finance began demanding payment for the entire shipment. I told the my story and they informed me that they had nothing to do with Dell and that they would help me staighten out the mess. I informed them that I had no intentions of paying for somethig I did not receive. So that is, in breif where I am at today. Wish me luck.

Ditch Alienware 14 and make thin n light Alienware 15 to compete with MSI GS60/70 and Razer Blade

Apr 11, 2014

Status: Under Review

Hello, As the title suggests I'll get straight to the point.Because Alienware 14 is so thick and heavy the 14inch screen on it seems pointless. Discontinue Alienware 14 and make a 15.6" thin and lightweight Alienware laptop that has similar portability as the MSI GS60/70, Razer Blade and Mac Book Pros but can match or outperform the MSI GS60/70 because they have GTX860m and GTX870m thus they are the most powerful thin and lightweight out of the 3 mentioned brands.If Alienware pulls this off it would really give them a run for their money.And regarding the design it off course has to look on par or even better than the mentioned 3 competitors above. Don't make it look imature but subtle like the current Alieneare 14, 17 and 18 but maybe even better.Thank you for your consideration.JohnStatus Update: Your Idea is currently Under Review. Please be patient during this process as we will be limited in what information we can share. Thank you for posting.
