A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

Hello,

Recently our internet bandwidth has been slowing down drastically. We are suspecting certain staff are streaming music or video during the working hours either on smart devices, tablets or possibly company computer within the network. We would like to know if there are any recommended solution or network bandwidth monitoring tool out there that we can use to perform a test on our network.

Thanks,

I accessed iFixit website, formymobile.co.uk, repairuniverse.com, and techrepublic.com and can't find any complete guide.  My objective is to replace the charging port in an A1822 iPad.  I have the part, but no guide.   Thanks.

I would like to have an app developed for a home classroom.
The Master will set the questions on the main tablet, this will sent out questions to the kids tablet such as maths questions with multiple choice answers, when the answered, the result should go back to the master tablet so the person can see who answered first and who got it right or wrong.
This should keep all stats until end of day or end of session, then the final results displayed with all stats .

I am sure this is possible, but if I were to look for an app developer, what type of skills am I looking for ? also how much should I be looking to pay ?  (approx cost).

Thanks

Question regarding an enterprise wifi GPO policy.  I have created a policy and it has successfully pushed down to 25+ Windows 10 tablets.  Only one of those tablets shows that "Some settings are managed by your system administrator" when checking the WiFi config which is good.  However, the other tablets do not show this and thus allow the user to tinker with the settings if they feel led to.  I have confirmed that via gpresult that all tablets have successfully received the GPO.  Any idea why these tablets are not locking down the settings like the one I mentioned is?  Thanks!

On my iPad, I asked for the IOS11 update. Its has been 2 days now and I still get the Install button grayed because "You can install this update when your iPad is finished restoring from the iCloud backup".
I don't need my iPad to be restored and 2 days is much too long anyway. So I conclude it will never end.
What can I do to finally install the update?
Thanks

Wonder how many IT engineers using MS Surface as a primary device instead of a traditional laptop.  Any pros/cons?
Easy to connect to dual screen displays via the docking stations, etc.  Network port throughput?  Memory, CPU?  

Any suggestions input appreciated.

Hi Friends.
I need some advice, but please do if you have any experience.
I need to install Driver E-Log on 10 tablets and handle it to my company drivers.
My boss request is to lock any other apps, preventing drivers to use internet
I went to Google PlayStore and I've found a lot of apps and I've tested 10
The problem is that any of this apps not locking itself (except Perfect Applock) so anyone can go to settings, or if settings are locked too, they can put finger on this applock app and uninstall will shows up. So bottom line anyone can uninstall app, so they can go to internet finally.

Perfect Applock has option to self lock to prevent shot down but this setting can be disable in Settings and settings is not protected, so bottom line useless.

So maybe someone of you using some AppLock app on Android and can suggest me one, that is going to lock apps I select and is going to lock itself and without password no one will be able to uninstall it.
 

Thank You in Advance.

I cannot get the Windows Surface Pro to turn on.  It did yesterday once for 3 seconds but it turned back off.  I have had it plugged in overnight but still cannot get the unit to turn on.  I have held down the button for 30 Seconds.  I have held down the volume and power for 30 seconds.

I'm not sure how it should act, but when I plug in the power connector, the light flashes, then turns solid (it stays white).  Suggestions?

I currently use Apple Magic Trackpad with a Lenovo 8" tablet (Android 5.1) for a customized field Astronomy setup. I'm looking for a very specific size and resolution (7.75" to 8",  1024x768 ) to replace the current tablet, but have found that Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility is spotty at best. Compatibility varies not just within versions of Android but also within point versions and also manufacturers. I'm trying to find a method to predict Bluetooth Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility within a certain device without having to actually have the device in my possession to test it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I've just bought one of the above in the Amazon UK black friday sale to give me to my elderly father to look at some photos and videos etc.

Amazon have told me that because I bought a version that came with an offer, it comes with a light version of bloatware that shows offers etc.

Anyone know I can remove it without having to pay Amazon?

Hi
I have a surface, not sure if it's a pro 2 or pro 3 or what.
However, it's being a huge pain cause I can't get the cover keyboard to work on the surface.

At one point, it wasn't working, I uninstalled the HID kybd device, restarted, did update and security and it found updates and started to work. Now after the weekend. It's not working again. I tried the same, with no luck.

Looking under device manager, hidden devices, I see a
"Surface type cover filter"  indicating error code 45, device not connected. But it is and was working.. also tried other cover kybds.

Was hoping someone has some expert advice on this matter.

I have also tried the holding the pwr and vol up to get into firmware.

I this it's mis reading my surface cover as a regular kybd and seeing the surface kybd as not connected

This is probably non IT sort of question. My ThinkPad Lenovo Yoga P40 laptop screen is too glossy and therefore
everytime I am working on it, no matter any background color or windows, I can see strong reflection like a mirror on this laptop screen. Meaning I can see myself which is very distracting to me.

I was wondering if any one know of any screen protector or matt sort of sheet that I can use to reduce this reflection. Making the screen brighter makes a little bit difference but still pretty annoying to me for constantly seeing my own image like a mirror.

Screen res is set to 2560 X1440 which is recommend.

Screen specs:   14.0" (355mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, IPS,
250 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 700:1 contrast ratio

My Dell Latitude laptop E5570 had no issues.

Hello Experts,
We need a tablet that will only do one thing.  Use the internet browser... and will only browse to one site.
This will mainly be for providing information to those near the device, but want the ability to ask the user a multiple choice question also.

In a perfect world, each time the unit powered on, it would open up the browser and would go automatically to a pre-determined site (And would not be able to go to any other site)

Is it possible to force ANDROID or IPAD to start the browser as soon as it's turned on?  Based on what I've read on EE, it is possible on a windows machine... but assuming that a decent Windows Tablet is going to be a substancially higher price than say an ANDROID tablet.   Having it work on a cheaper unit would be preferable.

Plus with Windows 10 seems like the OS is going to be a lot more.... "overhead" (for lack of a better word) than is needed.   This website will literally be the ONLY thing this device will ever do.

Is it possible to pair  Mac keyboards with other devices, such as Android tablets or Windows computers or are they exclusively set to be pair with Apple devices?  

My co-worker said that they only work with Apple devices ... ... but wasn't the idea of Bluetooth that they should work with any device, especially mice and keyboards?

I need to set up pc, laptop, and tablets to project wirelessly to a 70" monitor/hdtv in a classroom.  What's the best way to do this? Will chromecast mirror desktop send everything to the monitor, not just chrome compatible apps?

Hi Experts

I'm starting a small data application, and in order to keep it simple, I decided to use only 2 breakpoints:

  • Mobile:
  • Portrait tablets and lower (cell phones)
  • Desktop:
  • Landscape tablets and higher (laptops, desktops)

Based on this, how do I write my media queries?

Thank you.

Hello Experts,
I recently took over maintaining and developing VBA applications at my company.  The original developer is not available. One program I have taken over is an Access 2007 system for entering data on 8 different tablets. The code works everyday, however the process of completely understanding just how it is working is quite challenging (and also generally considered a lower priority project, compared to development).    Each tablet has it's own local db, with forms and a 'main' table.  There is a Master db on the network that has vba in it to pull data from the 8 tablets.  This is not a true front/back split situation, as most of the data truly lives independently on the tablets.

The tablets have forms which pop up on timers for users to enter values -- some every 10 minutes and another every 2 hours.  After interacting with the form, the values are stored in the underlying 'main' table.  

We have recently become aware of some gaps in the main table -- the program is running, the forms are popping up, and the users are interacting with them as usual.  No error messages pop up.  However, when one views the main table, you can see the values are not recorded.  In the past week this has occurred on 3 different tablets.  Closing and reopening the Access program seems to fix the problem, however, there is no good way currently to become aware of this problem to know to 'fix it'.

My colleague and I plan to attempt a compact and repair on the programs this …

A colleague indicated that he prefers iPhone over android phone because the iPhone is entirely encrypted and all apps download from the Apple store passes thru rigorous process prior being placed on the store.  On the other hand, android phone are not encrypted and you can download apps from anywhere, besides the store; in other words there is little control as to the google store apps as to security.  Finally all who developed apps for iPhone have to pay an anual fee to Apple where as to android no fee - insinuating at one point that a hacker can create an apps load it to google store and all can download it; thus being able to reach millions with ease.

Is there any accuracy to this persons comment? Please advice.

I found one at a store, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, that seemed impressive. Could write notes on it just like with an ordinary pen on paper. Is this the best there is on the market, or is there any other note-taking smartphone that is much better?

Except the function to take notes just like with an ordinary pen on paper but instead on the smartphone with an electronic pen, I also want to be able to easily and quickly find any small note. So there should be possible to save each note and label each note so I can find it later using any of several search criteria.

Also useful would be to easily be able to cut parts of a note and paste somewhere else to other notes (move parts of notes to other notes).

Or would a tablet like Samsung Tab J be even better than a note-taking smartphone?

Hi Experts,

I'm looking for recommendations on a decent Windows laptop that would support the full versions of Word, Excel and Outlook... maybe Access. I am also looking for a sim card slot so I can connect with my provider like my iPad.

The reason why I  want Windows is because Outlook Calendar and tasks do not support RTF on iPad especially tasks, which are very important for me.

I am also seeing flash drives and emc(?), how different are they from regular harddrives like SATA? How big of a harddrive do I need, RAM, and is there a Windows tablet, which has SIM card slot.

Thank you,

Hi,

I've been building a website from a tutorial I'd followed. The tutorial was initially for bs v4 alpha but since bs beta was launched I've made changes so it now seems to work for v4 beta.

The tutorial, as I understood it, was creating a website for larger screens and using the code
 @media(max-width:768px)

Open in new window

to specify any changes to the divs or sections IDs to be applied on screens smaller than 768  - i.e. phones and smaller tablets.

However, I've tried to make some more changes to my divs using the
@media(max-width:768px

Open in new window

command line but they appear not to be working when I minimize my browser to phone size. I wonder if this is because, as I read, small size resolution - i.e. for phones is the default, so the max width query is perhaps being over-written?

If I am using bootstrap v4 beta do I have to redo the site so the @media(max-width:768px is effectively the default and I'd need to make changes using (min-width: 576px / 768px) so things look different on the medium larger screens? ALternatively is there a way at the beginning to tell bootstrap that the 'default' is 768px and upwards....Hope this makes sense...Bit confused...Thanks
