Air Fryer

Apr 21, 2018

1 Vote

Status: New

Cooking comes about extended from satisfactory to average. When we cooked 28 ounces of solidified french fries at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the Philips HD9641/96 for 25 minutes, most turned out equally cooked, yet a modest bunch of fries were as yet underdone. Be that as it may, the Philips air fryer fared superior to anything others we tried, for example, the GoWISE USA GW22621 and Avalon Cove Advanced Air Fryer 220SS, which consumed the fries nearest to the warming component and left the ones on the base of the container totally crude. The hand-cut fries we cooked in the Philips HD9641/96 utilizing ½ tablespoon of oil were equally carmelized, yet they had a shriveled, got dried out surface. A portion of the fish sticks and breaded chicken fingers were soaked in places and not as fresh as we had trusted, even after we expanded the cooking time. What's more, however the pork slashes we cooked in the Philips HD9641/96 had decent shading around the edges, the focuses were pale and unappetizing. The edges of the meat were seared, yet the surface was totally pale, and the outcome didn't compare to the shimmering, equally sautéed pork hack you can get from cooking in a skillet. Is a gadget that cooks sustenance so ineffectively worth $250? Nope, it isn't.  Of all the air fryers we tried, the Philips HD9641/96 had the littlest impression, estimating around 14¼ by 10½ by 11 inches,best air fryer consumer reports length by width by tallness. All things considered, it's as yet massive, and it consumes up adequate room on a kitchen counter. In any case, it has the slightest hostile outline, dissimilar to the colossal T-fal air fryer we tried, which at around 17 by 12½ by 8 inches looked like something out of a '80s science fiction motion picture.

Desktop that follows you

Status: Acknowledged

How annoying is it when you're browsing on your desktop for recipes, find one you want to try, and then you have to email yourself the link so you can pull it up on your laptop, smartphone or tablet in order to make it "mobile"!?!  There needs to be a way for the basic home user to have a desktop or browser that's available to follow them in it's state between devices.

"Tele" Kinetic

Mar 23, 2018

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I was wondering if there was a way to use kinetic energy to power our devices. I was thinking maybe a ring the stored kinetic energy for the movement of your finger could provide a charge for your phone. I understand the capcity would not be very large but this could be incorperated into bracelets necklaces and or watches. The power could even be swapped through Qi charging so no wires would be needed.

Natural Disaster Triage Teams - Retrieving Memories and E-Waste Collection

Sep 29, 2017

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

These are 2 ideas are inspired by Hurricane Harvey and other natural disasters. What if Dell engineers traveled to communities (globally) that have been hit by natural disasters and helped people:1) Recover seemingly lost data from their devices e.g. the "cake eating" photos from their child's first birthday party  2) Provide dumpsters for clean up crews to dispose of electronic waste responsiblity.Details of ensuring someone "owns" the device they are seeking to retrieve data from would need to be addressed, as well as other logistics to ensure the materials could be reused by Dell Corp.  I believe this is a great "feel good" effort to kickstart. It is a great way to get e-materials are routed to Dell for reuse/purpose. I welcome your thoughts. And, I'd love to help. Please let me know! Thanks!

Pure Air PC

Dec 5, 2016

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I would like to present to you interesting idea to make the cases for desktops better home and office equipment.   Every desktop collects inside the dust. At the same time, it moves more than 1.000 CF of the air every hour, 2-4 times the volume of the air in small room or individual office space.   When the interior of the desktop is coated with FNNANO and illuminated by UVA LED, the desktop will efficiently purify all the passing air, it will eliminate the contamination in the room and it will reduce the inside dust, keeping the fast rate of processing data.   We can achieve three concepts at once: help clean the environment, share the pure room concept and make the PC run faster.   If you are interested to develop this option with us we would be happy to provide more details.

Dell-AR Innovation

May 31, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Augmented reality is current in "beta" phase as far as technology and application goes.  A lot of groundwork has been done by Microsoft and Google with the Holo-lens and Glass respectively.  I propose that dell takes advantage of the existing interest of AR technologies, and expands them into large scale environments. Some of the environments that would be good to see are Zoos, Aquariums and Planetariums where instead of just seeing a docile elephant in a pen, or a limited number of small fish in bowls, and immersive experience where one can stand inches away from a life size Gorilla or Lion.  Or enter into a massive water tank and "swim" with life size whales, sharks, and creatures iof the deep that cannot be housed in current aquariums due to varius circumstances (enviornmental/habitat restrictions etc.)  The educational applications are limitless, and if the technologies are implimented into a self contained environment, can lead to an ever changing experience for end users.  Every week/month a new "exhibit" could be launched to bring back patrons, leading to a year round income source with drastically reduced overhead expenses vs traditional zoos/aquariums.  Other applications include, but are not limited to: AR-Gaming, AR-Educational programs, AR-Enterprise support applications, AR-client support applications.

No more plastic wrap, please

May 22, 2008

1010 Votes

Status: Implemented

In the last shipment of computers I received I was shocked by the amount of plastic wrap used for items like power cords, USB cables, VGA/DVI cables. Do these items really need to be individually wrapped in a plastic bag. I can just imagine the tons of plastic used by Dell annually... Something to think about Status Update Dell Adds Renewable Bamboo to its Packaging Portfolio

Produce Good Value "Green" Desktops & Laptops

Jan 22, 2008

0 Vote

Status: Partially Implemented

There are many suggestions here for various changes that could make a PC "greener". As part of the companies green credentials, I believe that not only should as many of these as possible be a "default" option, but there should be specific "greener" models of desktops and laptops. These would have lower power usage and should be created and shipped in a more environmentally friendly way. Components, too, could be kept to a minimum - onboard graphics and sound and a removal in "legacy" ports. The desktop version of this could use laptop components to better embrace this idea. The vast majority of PC users require one for emails, internet browsing and office applications - a low powered (but not under-powered) PC and laptop that are more than sufficient for this should be easy to produce.
