  • Not just a Printer but a pretty Central HUB

    Status: New

    Looking around most workstation setups, it’s curious to see how in this day and age things remain still so scattered. Then you realize that of all peripherals, the printers are omnipresent and most-importantly – always connected. And when you consider the size of average printer, it’s amazing nobody yet thought of integrating greater multifunctionality within all that estate. Thus - instead of mostly unatractive bland space-grabbing boxes, why not make a well-designed USB 3 device which connects to a computer via a single cable and serves not only as a printer & scanner but... ... as an attractive central connection point, which can also display important references and alerts? Image above conceptualises All-In-One: • Printer/ scanner • Appointments Display (with data pulled from Google or system calendar) • Powered stereo speakers (USB or BT) • Clock with Internet weather • Display for SD card content • Printer touchscreen commands • Notifications display • USB hub with 3-4 powered slots • SD/ multicard reader • MP3 player Considering the number of hardware pieces such device would replace, it could sell at several times the price of an average printer, thus hopefully justifying its production/ support costs. Just a thought – but I'd certainly jump to buy one or three:)

  • A Software may be developed to broadcast information to all colleagues with some options. It will be done in an intrusive method during network connectivity, broadcasting mails or tray-popups (agents)? An administrator choose the method and fill some required information whcih will be broadcasted.This software will be pluggable and flexible?

  • Developing P2P Applications framework on Smartphones

    Status: Acknowledged

    Is developing P2P applications on smartphones, a good idea? The hard concept of information security, client-server approach will be deprecated. And some p2p application will be overcome. So this p2p application will be trend against to information security policies. At that time zero-trust will be performed and all p2p applications will be communicate with each other in a white list and via some protocols whether protocol will be encrypted or not. So developing a framework which will provide a development environment of an compact software to communicate several application on smartphones.Is this a good idea?

    The Alienware 17 (and I believe the 18) have a well-documented problem with heat, especially the NVidia 880M GPU. The main problem these laptops have is a locked down fan table, meaning we cannot set the fan speeds higher than the laptop allows. Normally this would not be a problem but for some reason the fans are locked to a lower RPM than they are capable of; 4600 RPMs for the CPU and 3400 RPMs for the GPU. Both fans are capable of ~5000+ RPMs. It is also interesting that the fan CFM has been lowered as well to ~1.66 for the CPU and ~1.7 for the GPU, down from ~3 for the CPU and up to ~11.7 for the GPU in the Alienware M17X R4. The built in fan table is also sluggish to respond and only allows a few set RPMs instead of a smooth curve. For example the GPU can be 0, 1700, or 3400 RPMS. This means that the GPU will become very hot, 85+ degrees Celsius, before the laptop compensates. It is not uncommon to see 90+C on either the CPU or GPU in these laptops. There is also a point when the fans cannot blow enough air to keep the heatsink cool and will either cause the temperatures to become very hot and/or the laptop will shut off. This is especially noticeable for people that have a high end unlocked i7 CPU or a hot GPU like the 880M. At the very least we need the fans to spin at full RPM to allow for max heat dissipation. It would be even better if we could set our own fan speeds/curves through software like the Aurora has or with a key combination like Clevo has implemented (FN+1=100% fan speed) that runs the fans at full speed. A BIOS based option would also work so that we could choose a fan profile, use the default fan table we have now for a quiet option or something but at least allow users to pick a higher performance, more aggressive option. Ideally a fan control software option would be into the Alienware TactX software which would allow users to customize their fans to what they want, similar to what the Auroras have (http://i.imgur.com/ZYX5RCb.png). I would also like to address the overclocking options these machines are lacking but without better thermal dissipation it is a moot point. These machines can barely run stock much less overclocked. In summary, the fan tables and fan spin up temperatures should be variable and/or more aggressive instead of arbitrarily limited. There is no reason to limit the thermal dissipation potential of a laptop. Not only would it benefit customers but I'm sure there would be less complaints and service requests which would save Dell/Alienware money. Besides the fan control and CPU overclocking options these are outstanding laptops. It is odd that machines known for their extreme performance and desktop-esque features would suffer from basic problems no previous generation did. I can only speak for myself, but I think a lot of people would agree with me that these are major flaws. I will not be purchasing or recommending another Alienware product if this is not addressed. Thanks for your time.

  • HiDell Request for an unlock Bios with corrected fan tables, cpu control and CPU advanced features such as VT-d for Alienware 18 instead of crippled Bios and future support for Windows 10.Raised support call with Dell they need more people to see this happening so I'm starting this crowdfunding.Please post if you require this in the Bios release for Alienware 18.The excuse I'm getting is Alienware 18 is discontinued.Thanks for your support
