FreeBSD is an extremely stable OS. OpenBSD is an an extremely secure OS. DELL should offer it a synthesis of these two OS's as an optional install. Security will be the most important criteria in the acquisition of technological goods. The greater the diversity of OS's the greater the chances of being able to minimise the spread of malware contagions. DELL, invest in FreeBSD! You will not regret it. Best wishes zeke
Idea: I have idea a technology that non uses PC. only the monitor as a display device and a keyboard might be smartfon or other device …all performance will be in the cloud (EMC). Security: Login can be by using the BAR code + password and the smartphone that the user authorizes for the private cloud. Devices: Monitor with wifi, smartphone with android 4.0 +, EMC cloud
Hi Michael, mi name is Marco Venegas, I am system director of the construction group, I have followed important trajectories such as yours Michael and from a very young age admire your determination, innovation and work. Today it even hurts to see Dell losing my soul, I'll tell you straight away, DELL has stopped being DELL, today I see it and it seems to me a company so distant that I met as a young man, looking for agreements with other companies to survive and not fall A lot, this makes me sad from a certain point of view, DELL is successful and is recovering, but what good is it if it is not DELL anymore. If you allow me as user friend you have seen your trajectory from start to finish. Allow me to dare to tell you as a crazy idea how to save the real DELL (since nowadays I see a cheap copy of the original DELL that captivates many users). I have had success in my measure in every thing I undertake (here among us I tell you to help create cornpop as an idea) and I am also a friend of several interesting people with whom I share opinions like google exCEO in Mexico, and he is Director of developments of Ofice365 of Microsoft, etc. For Dell to recover the soul, it needs 4 things that must be followed to the letter, and the order is very important, I do not describe each factor in detail, but I will try to explain a brief summary: A) Remember that it is a massive market for people rather than business. For such generate disruptive campaigns that are needed in the market, if DELL in massive only makes PC, wasting time will only be a slower death. Just as Steve Jobs reinvented his computers and cannibalized Mac sales to save the company with Ipod, iPad, etc. DELL should start disruption with Multi-Purpose Tablets easy to convert to a PC or an Android, and without adapters! If you need more information you can ask me I will not charge for anything, I will do it to see a star born again. Dream again! B) Dell already has a change in processes from its factories, operation, etc, but they are nobody without I could not make improvements in the equipment that are worthwhile and reach the end user with improvements that surprise, not only that they are expected, but Which truly surprise, an example is a PC / Tablet that is born designed for "augmented reality" and "Virtual reality" this really would be exciting for everyone. Details of the idea can consult me. Be artist! C) Create more than a hardware system that allows the real compatibility between the multiple platforms of unified mobile phones in a single system within the Dell hardware either in PC or Tablet, this although it is easy to do, I do not know why nobody Has done?!, Everyone needs it but nobody does it, it is very depressing. D) In LinkedIn all the entrepreneurs learned a great lesson, that the offices are only material like cement and rod, but the real company is made of people, and all the people we look for in the work a trait of sociability, and there are even surveys that Says that there are people who like what is most in their office is the social environment, and is valued every effort that is directed at them. That's why LinkedIn is famous, it's a niche, a necessity !, for such you have to do teams based on sociability (I'm not talking about social networks), like ... every PC is a network, not a single user, Systems must naturally be made to create societies based on business sectors such as construction, medicine, accounting, and so on. This is really better !, not only to buy companies, the truth is to be disruptive, to be the soul of Dell again, to be better, to be ahead, to see the improvements beyond, if they like what I say, can contact me with pleasure I will support. Otherwise I will only pass the idea to a company detail that if you are interested in being great, I just want to see that angel who lost Dell live again in the spirit of Dell and see how surprising the competition and the whole world a phoenix. Regards Marco Venegas
Bought and with deep regrets, returned the 9560: - Arrived formatted in legacy boot, took an hour to realize BIOS were wrong and reconfigure- Service tag was unkown to Dell Support on day of delivery and first call- Basic web browsing was extremely laggy, apparently was a driver bugAs far as feature request: - more emphasis on quality control at the factory- no bloatware, pure Windows install- Intel Iris Graphics for those seeking power efficient option in CPU-bound workloads- 4K USB-C monitor, 27-32 inch size with 5 port USB hub to remove need to docking station and power cable- Better keyboard on par with Lenovo T and P series- Non-fingerprint magnet chassis- Keep up the excellent 4K display in the 9560. It is/was fantasticIf I get the XPS15 9570 it will be used as desktop replacement for video editing. Thanks!
My idea is to create a 3D printer using paper. There are two type of papers involved... thin and thick.The thin paper is to print items like origami. You can print a 3D folding plane to a 3D Japanese dinosaurs origami. I'm sure all kids would love this.Using thicker paper an architect or engineer can print parts of building with ease. These prnted parts can then be attached together. It is much cheaper than using the current printer technology.This is my dream. Every house will have this soon.
The XPS15 I have has only one USB-C port on the left side of the laptop. Currently I would like to use a Displayport, network (RJ45) and some extra USB ports. With this I do not want to take my docking station with me and I was looking for a portable solution. Now I have a few USB-C extentions for DP en network but I cannot use them at the same time because the laptop has only one USB-C port.My suggestion is to put another USB-C port on the right side of the laptop. It does not have to be a loading port.

Google translate (french ---> english) Hello, I am giving you some ideas to improve the Alienware range To start one of the big problems of the Alienware with gpu series 10, it is the lack of USB 3.0. Adding 2 more on the sides would make the product easier to use, because having to use a USB HUB is really not pratical to plug in (blu-ray player, sd card reader, keyboard-mouse, usb headset, external hdd, smartphone, audio dac, etc...). To continue on the defects, there is that of the temperatures of the components and the distribution of the heat. Initially, the use of a vapor chamber will transmit the heat equally to the heatsink. Next, add small heatsink (copper or aluminum) to the PCH and a third fan 'small and fine) aspire fresh air in front of the alienware beside the speakers, to cool the ssd m.2 nvme that heat up so throttles. This will allow to cool all the pc (motherboard, battery, ram, keyboard, etc...). And in a third time make a larger grid under the pc and use an insulating material as some competitor model do. Then improve the idea of the graphics amplifier which is a great idea by the way, with 8x or16x pci-e cabling, or using the proprietary port and the thunderbolt 3 usb simultaneously or improve the proprietary port so that it support 8x. The wiring in 4x current is not futurproof because with the test one finds that the 4x bridles the performances of the new GPU. Otherwise I congratulate the engineers from Alienware for the speakers part because frankly they sound good, but at the electonics this is not right. I suggest the use of a high-end DAC 24 or 32 bits with audiophile capacitors (Wima for example) then one amp for the right channel and another for the left, allon a pcb mechanically insulated (plate in aluminum to limit interference). For audio outputs it would be necessary to separate microphone and audio then propose 2 outputs jack 3.5mm (gold plated) with the function "balanced" but also a spdif output. If not for the software, keep thet of Nahimic audio, it is well thought out. It is a shame to have to buy an external USB DAC (that one can not connect because more usb free) which makes us lose the binaural sound of Nahimic. To continue the Alienware they always have unique designs with hyper premium materials BUT it would be great to change the disign of the power supply as the competition (evga or razer) would reinforce the unusual character of the Alienware whth a unique charger in his genre !!! Finally, with the evolution of the technology, it would be claver to make your screens evolve towards Quantums Dots and HDR 10, whether for IPS or even TN It would be good if the model 17 is eqipped with an OLED slab like the 13, with in addition a screen refreshing top and a latency adapted to the competiton. Thank you for listening to me. Iknow this message will never be taken seriously by DELL and Alienware. But if you can at least put more usb this would already by great. We like this brand but we have the impression that it loses in innovation against the competition for 2years, reenter you I beg you and deployed the flag at the head of Alien ;) !!!
Three years ago I began to suffer from RSI caused by prolonged and intense mouse use as part of my work as an environmental modeller. My office (an engineering firm) generously offered to pay for whatever equipment I needed, so was able to test several ergonomic mice in the market. None of them well enough to completely relieve my symptoms. I then decided to build my own mouse.I started my design from the fact that I can play fingerstyle guitar (plucking) for hours without issues, yet 15 minutes of working with a conventional mouse will bring on my symptoms. This suggested that instead of pushing down to click on mouse buttons, pulling in my fingers to click (the way I do when I pluck a guitar string) was the ergonomic way to do this.The other differences between clicking a mouse button and plucking a guitar string involve the range of motion (ROM) and the force applied. A mouse button has an ROM of a couple of millimeters, but plucking a guitar string involves at least 20 mm. In theory the small ROM in a mouse should be a good thing, but it is not because it takes more force to click the button than to pluck a string. Most ergonomic mice use the same buttons as conventional ones. Some ergonomic mice had buttons are lighter than others (including touch mice), but they pose a problem of accidental clicks that required me to lift my fingers while using them. I realized that the solution was to use the principle of a lever: increase the ROM to click the button, thus requiring less force to do so while avoiding accidental clicks. To achieve this leverage, the point where the finger clicks the mouse should be farther forward of the mouse button. This revises a feature found in all mice, conventional or ergonomic, where the finger is right over the buttons.I have attached a picture of my mouse. It is actually built of two travel mice, one piggybacked on the other. The one on top has no electronics but has the buttons, the other on the bottom has the electronics. The levers used to click the buttons are caps from a medicine bottle. The body is a piece of foam.One the left side is a padded button for the thumb, which is the middle click. Due to the placement of the wheel, I could not build a lever for this button. Using the thumb made sense, since it is the strongest digit on the hand, but does nothing on a conventional mouse.My travel mouse had a large wheel, which I retained because I found it to be easier to use. But the big change I adopted was to move the wheel farther to the front of the mouse, which I achieved by cutting off as much of the PCB as possible. The advantage of this placement is that it prevents my fingers from curling or bending back to turn the wheel. I also wanted to place the wheel even lower but I could not do so without radically modifying the mouse. Again, this goes against the convention of placing the wheel on top of the mouse.The other innovation I wanted to put in was to place the mouse wheel over the pointing finger rather than the middle. This is after all the finger I use to turn the wheel, and often the one I use to click it. An informal survey of my co-workers showed that they do the same thing. But like the QWERTYY keyboard, there is really no strong reason for the mouse wheel to be between the two buttons other than symmetry and tradition. Others might prefer to use their middle fingers to operate the wheel, but still use their stronger index finger to click it. The remarkable thing was that after I came up with my mouse with the idea to click a button by pulling in my fingers, Microsoft came up with the Sculpt mouse that had this feature. I tried it, but I went back to my homebuilt mouse. The Sculpt was too big for my hand, and it did not have the leverage (as well as the other features of my mouse).My mouse completely stopped my RSI. I enjoyed it for about a year until the buttons started to fail, and I did not have the energy to rebuild it. Fortunately I found your Dell WM 311 which I believe helped my symptoms though its lightness and low profile. It did not completely eliminate my RSI but if I took enough breaks I was able to avoid the pain. A week ago the middle button on this mouse stopped working, and I learned that it is no longer in production. This morning I received what is supposed to be closest model to it available, the WM514, but it is larger and heavier. I am concerned that I will soon need to resume my search for the perfect mouse. I therefore hope that you consider my suggested design elements so that I won’t have to.

In the past, Dell offered a service where you could pay extra to have a design added to certain XPS laptops when you were configuring them for order. Of course, if you're getting it as a gift for someone, or it gets damaged, the design you chose/created is really expensive to fix.What I propose is a pilot program where facades are created for different Dell/Alienware laptop models. Facades would be like the faceplates made for the PS4; a pair of covers that clip onto the back of a laptop's display and the base, rather than a permanent customisation of its chassis.Since these are removeable at any time, they could be made of a thin, dense material that protects the laptop from scuffs and denting, but have designs from partnered artists, celebrate games, TV shows and movies, or just change the laptop's chassis colour. More than that, if they got damaged, you could simply replace them instead of replacing the whole laptop.
I noticed that Dell is attempting to foray into the Digital Artist field; the stylus for the Dell Canvas sporting Wacom tech, says to me that they're serious. What these Interactive Pen Displays lack - particularly the larger ones that take up more space - is a comfortable, efficient means of accessing a vast array tools and functions within a program. The Dell Canvas ships with the "totem" radial dial, but it doesn't strike me as ideal, and isn't viable on a vertically-mounted display. Even Wacom hasn't managed to release an outstanding solution; most professionals are partial to using keyboards, and neither the Wacom ExpressKey Remote, nor the buttons on the side of their Intuos & Cintiq tablets are effective at increasing workflow. I used a 27QHD cintiq for a year, with my keyboard awkwardly on my lap (lack of space), and used the ExpressKey Remote for the first two days before never touching it again. What Digital Artists need is a specially-designed "Gaming Pad". I've been using a Logitech G13 for the past year, and it's such an amazing difference; I'm 85% confident that it would be a roaring success, and if I had the skills to design a prototype and the necessary drivers myself, then I'd be on Kickstarter right now. While I'm content to go on using the G13, with the knowledge that it could be so much better, I'd love to see the concept pushed to the next level. If the G13 had two analog sticks (one customizable, and one that instantly snaps to the directional Hue), and a touch strip (similar to those on the Cintiq 24HD), it would be incredibly efficient, and drastically improve workflow. The overall position of the upper keys on the G13 is very comfortable, so I'd take that layout into consideration and adapt it to be more suitable. Here's a quick example of what I mean And here's how I have mine configured: (I'm about 2 buttons short; 4 at the bottom right would've been perfect). It's targetted at gamers, but accidentally caters extremely well to professional creators. Someone definitely needs to capitalize on that. tl;dr - build a custom Gaming Pad accessory, designed for professional artists. Set the drivers up to support changing of Hue & Brightness using an Analog Stick & Touch Strip. Give it 30+ customizable buttons and TWO analog sticks(or an up-left/down-right facing toggle fin - important to have something more than just 1 analog). Succeed at something that every other company has failed to address for over a decade.
