WalknBook IRulu w1002 Drivers [Windows Tablet/PC]

review-irulu-windows-tablet-w1002-20050

This is a quick post, and it’s really inspired by the trouble it takes to find drivers for Windows devices. From PCs to tablets, Windows requires drivers and without them stuff just doesn’t work right. Right? Right.

So this brings us to the post of today for the IRulu w1002 WalknBook Windows tablet PC. It’s a great tablet PC, but in some cases they might need to be wiped, reformatted and reloaded. This brings us back to requiring drivers.

Review: VidOn Media Service – Very Disappointing

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted about doing a review on a new media server software called VidOn. Most people have heard of Plex and Kodi/XBMC for streaming content for mobile devices and home theater systems. The VidOn media server is right in the same category, but VidOn, like Plex, can transcode media on-the-fly to make it available on pretty much any device [in theory].

Unfortunately, my experience with the VidOn media server and the various VidOn media applications and services have been less than impressive. In fact, I haven’t been able to get a lot of the VidOn applications to work properly, thus I wasn’t able to accurately review the product/service.

Review: Urban Armor Gear Smartphone Cases

Recently, I updated my smartphone to a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The process of looking for that perfect phone cover is always important because what you’re looking for is something to protect your phone, be convenient, be compatible and be economical.

I’ve done a lot of product reviews on software and hardware, but I’ve never done a review on a phone cover/case. I was approached by Urban Armor Gear to do a review on their phone cases. I’m always interested to do reviews on new products, devices and gadgets; and this falls in that category. And luckily I had a compatible phone for evaluation.

Urban Armor Gear has an array of cases for smartphones and tablets, focusing around Apple, Samsung, Google, HTC, LG and Microsoft. The cases come in array of various different colors; enough to appease just about anyone. In my case, I chose standard white.

Why More Facebook Users Are Using Aliases

Since October 2014, Facebook has officially allowed the use of aliases on its social media website. Facebook is no longer just a social media exchange between family and friends, it’s now considered a resource for law enforcement, current and future employers. In some cases people are being asked for their Facebook accounts so that potential employers can use the social media website to find out what kind of person you are in your free time.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been noticing a trend of more and more people using aliases with Facebook. more people have become fearful of using Facebook because all the information on it can be used against you; it just depends on who is looking at your information. Facebook’s previous policy said that you had to use your real name for identification.

Now that Facebook’s appearance to the public is changed and have been numerous reports that Facebook has privacy problems, they leak your information and they give law enforcement and employers back doors to search for your profile information, people don’t want to be found [unless they want to].

IRulu’s V1C Genius or Insanity: Rotating Smartphone Camera

I was just checking out iRulu’s website today and I noticed that they have a new smartphone listed. The new smartphone, the iRulu V1C, is one of their latest releases. I’ve done reviews on previous smartphones that they offer and they performed very well, but this one struck me with great curiosity. It also seems to be at a high level of debate inside my household whether or not it’s genius or insanity.

iRulu’s V1C smartphone has a camera that can be flipped to the front or the back. The V1C smartphone comes with a 13 megapixel camera. Most normal smartphones only have a front and rear camera. So by having this singular high-resolution camera on the smartphone that can be flipped to the front and back, is a good idea or a bad one?

You can help me decide…
