  • Split Display

    Status: Acknowledged

    Hi,I work in the Logistics side of an I.t. company and i like getting involved with all the aspects, we were busy setting up for a client where we were using VGA Splitters to divide the display from one screen to 3 others then back to another splitter and so on and so forth. Honestly it caused a lot of loose cabling and looked extremely untidy.Is it not possible to install a Mini Splitter with one IN and one Out VGA or HDMI port? that way, we would just be able to run one cable in and another out, Eliminatiing the normal splitter, and making life more easier.

  • NFC in Laptops

    Status: Acknowledged

    Hi GuysThis was a topic about 2 years ago, I just wanted to know if there has been any advances made within the technology itself (specifically the transfer rate).Keeping in mind that I am from South Africa, data is very expensive and proper bandwidth is hard to come by. I myself currently have a 4MB ADSL line but only getting 2MB download speed.  Moving North in africa the situation is a lot worse.If it could be as fast as bluetooth then software distribution can change forever, specifically for laptops that do not have cd ROMs.  There is almost no human intervention as the customer will buy a card (the size of any Master Card or Visa that is NFC enabled) and place it on the designated area.  Imediatly the software will start installing and only needs to be activated by the user.The magstripe is used by retailers for billing purposes etc. and it could double up as a loyalty membership card or something...

  • Alienware luminescent

    Status: Acknowledged

    So I was using my alienware 17 in the dark, just to see the what it looked like gaming with nothing but the lights. I also remember trying to connect a mouse or a usb to one of the ports, and in pitch dark it was a little tricky, I use the word tricky lightly.... But since Alienware love to inject morsals of functionality encapsulated in what some would consider over-the-top fashion, I thought about adding luminescent lighting for certain areas on the laptop. I'm not talking about replacing the lights with luminescent lighting....not a good idea, but rather...you know the ports on the side, the usb, the hdmi, etc etc etc, how about making the text that said "HDMI OUT" or "USB 3.0" luminescent. What do I mean by luminescent? well ...glow in the dark.... like you find on watches... I was thinking about making those texts light up...but that's over kill, luminescent is probably the best way to go.Considering the new line up of Alienware laptops don't have light strips on the sides, I think this would come in handy. These texts aren't lit up all the time, because in daylight it's not necessary, but when things get a little too dark; you won't find it difficult to find/locate the port you want...cos they (the text) glow! perhaps maybe instead of just the lettering , you could have a luminescent ring around certain ports or make a glowing usb connector. it's not glaring like a light would be, but its functional...that's the idea....love to hear what you think : ) image credits: http://cdn2.expertreviews.co.uk/sites/expertreviews/files/1/23/alienware_13_d_0926_0.jpg?itok=kRpn-TCv
