Know your Tablet and who it is for!!

galazy-tab-sKnow your tablet and who it is for! All Tablets are similar but not equal.

When it’s about gifting children a piece of technology, parents become insecure. For young ones, phones seem to be a distraction and laptops are just too much for them all at once. So the mixture of a phone, iPod and a laptop speed processor gave us the tablet. Most of the companies call it a tab or tablet where as apple keeping its cool seems to enjoy using the name iPad for its version of the tablet. Multiple choices are available today in the market for buyers. Almost every company that has advanceIpadd in the technology of displays has at some point introduced a tablet but success has not favored all.

The major stake holders of the market seem to be Apple and Samsung whereas the rest share part of the market. A person who wants to buy the latest tablet must know a few things about a tab and must compare these aspects with others he has as an option. The screen resolution, the density of pixels, the screen size, the weight as well as most importantly the processing speed. Newer tabs not only connect to Wi-Fi but also to LTE networks at a little extra fee.

Tsurface pro 3he new Apple products like the Apple iPad mini 3 as well as the Apple iPad Air 2 already have a lot of consumers waiting to get their hands on them because of the massive Apple following. However, great competitors like Samsung have introduced multiple devices; proper tablets and phone/tablets that can work as a phone too are all out in the market. Samsung has also introduced the Note series, Note 1, 2 and 3 that have a great processing speed and can perform the tasks of both a tablet as well as a phone. Other companies like Toshiba, Ainol, Google, Xtouch, Acer and windows tablets all are somewhat on the same level and improvements take place every now and then.

Is Microsoft Windows 10 Better that Windows 8? YES!!!, Windows 9 skipped?

windows10-logoIs Microsoft Windows 10 Better that Windows 8? We think so!, Windows 9 skipped? Yes and there might be a good reason.

Microsoft officially announced that Windows 10 will be the next official Windows OS. Windows 9 has been skipped but the way Microsoft sees it Windows 8.1 took its place. Microsoft Windows 8 was a disappointment to many, mostly because there was so much difference from Windows 7. Windows 8 has a great concept but with lots of bugs and glitches it was not appalling to consumers. Windows 8.1 update was a huge improvement but still a lot of bugs and glitches remained.

So what happened to Windows 9? There are few rumors floating around as to why Microsoft skipped 9. One reason is that some believe Windows 8.1 was more like Windows 9 since Microsoft never added extension to the OS.  Second was that Windows 9 would have made a possible comp ability with third party software.  For a programmer that writes the code the (win9) could be mistaken for Win95 and Win98 when verifying a compatibility check and that could create issues. There is no official word why, but we believe that it has to do with compatibly check.

Microsoft Windows 10 Desktop View

The New Microsoft Windows 10 looks similar to Windows 8 but whit whole lot of improvements. The whole overall in Windows 10 is that it will look more like windows 8 but will work as Windows 7. Windows 7 is currently the most popular Widows on desktops. Microsoft continues to push Touch as forward thinking, but want desktop users to have same experience as they have had in the past few Windows generations.

Microsoft Windows 10 Desktop

Microsoft has launched its Windows 10 Insider Program that will allow beta testers to provide input and sniff out bugs before Win10 hits the general public sometime in fall of 2015

Microsoft knows that they screwed up with Windows 8 and I am sure that Windows 10 will Finally be a hit. From previous Windows releases its seems that its Microsoft trend to release one bad OS and follow up with a great one after that.

Using Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5.2 or VDI Controller Advantages

Firewall system. Computer Network.What is Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5.2?

Citrix VDI-in-a-box functions as a VDI controller. It sits as a VM appliance, in your data center, and tosses sessions between a breathtaking number of devices; Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2, VMware 5.0 update 1+, Citric XenCenter 6.1 hypervisor, and many others. Citrix uses an enhancement of RDP protocols by Microsoft, HDX protocol. With Citrix VDI-in-a-box you cannot virtualize hot sessions for non-Windows operating systems, and you will need a Microsoft volume licensing agreement to have Windows virtual licensed desktops available to you, a DHCP server, data store, and a naming convention for hosted Virtual Machines.

Although both companies, Citrix and VMware, have extra products, VMware native instance image considerations still lead a bit. Once you get the images correctly installed, you will have to license these; has a different licensing constraint. To prevent resource drainage during peak events, like a remote meeting time or morning start up time, Citrix allows VDI-in-a-box to be configured. For Citrix running Citrix VDI, Citrix recommended server infrastructure descriptions are less detailed than VMware. This might be due to the fact that Citrix runs as a connection broker over various different flexible hypervisor families, Whereas VMware Horizon View is run in a more controlled environment.

Images are delivered to remote based and local desktops without a hitch, and the draft images allow you to choose either Citrix HDX protocol or Microsoft’s RDP protocol. For a dramatic effect, high latency connections or low speed, you can also limit colour depth. You can also choose between hosted VMs use of network or device disks, smart cards, printers, or USB devices.

Security concerns are outside the scope of this product and should be buttoned down before the installation; Citrix VDI-in-a-box facilitates multiple hypervisor family platforms. Chances of misuse seem to be very limited as most organizations use the best security practices.
