  • AVG pre-installed

    Status: Acknowledged

    Dell has pre-installed McAfee for years, and now I think it's high time to end that partnership and partner with AVG to pre-install their software on new Dell systems. AVG offers a free antivirus that never expires, and it's better than Windows 10's built-in Windows Defender (i.e. you can't schedule scans in Defender, but in AVG). When you purchase a Dell system, you can select either the free edition of AVG, or a paid subscription. Most people would want the free edition, but to get more features (such as Firewall), you would have to purchase a subscription. I think pre-installing AVG would be a good option for Dell, because it would be inconvenient for people to uninstall McAfee and install AVG.

  • GE's dual piezo cooling technology for tablets, laptops.

    Status: Acknowledged

    Dell,GE's  dual piezo cooling jets, acts as a miniature pair of bellows: Expanding to intake  cool air, and then contracting to expel hot air. They're just 1mm thick,  high-performance cooler.This technology is better than hyperbaric fan or a regular fan cooling technology that is used in laptop today.The dual piezo cooling jet can move the same amount of air as a comparable axial  cooling fan twice its size while consuming half the amount of electricity and being cheaper to make. It  allows for slimmer designs of laptop, increases battery life and almost silent in operation.This technology is scalable, so can be made smaller or larger to suit the application.The following are images about this product:References:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm5fXj-hUpk  ( fan description)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8WD50bxG_o  ( air flow demo)http://www.ijer.in/ijer/publication/v4s5/IJER_2015_513.pdf  (performance analysis)http://www.geglobalresearch.com/innovation/ges-dual-piezoelectric-cooling-jets-dcj-cool-quiethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFXw2UfzPZY#t=118  ( thermal management )- voxmu

  • Dell-AR Innovation

    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.

    When I received my 32" lcd screen it had an extremely large amount of Styrofoam. Dell is working to be environmentally friendly, maybe they should consider a better packing material at least one that will biodegrade. Status Update:  Dell's latest strategy on better packaging for the environment can be found here and here.
