Present-day “1/16” Windows tablets turn out to be less capable than circa-2007 Windows UMPCs!
Strange how tech progress “advances.”
See the link above for Chippy’s post and his embedded video.
I used iXpand to watch videos while flying over the weekend: The app’s built-in video player can read more video formats than the iPad’s default video playing app—including the Microsoft-friendly WMV and AVI—and I didn’t have to mess around with copying the videos over to the iPad to get them to play. (It won’t play DRM movies, like the ones you’d buy from iTunes, however.)
This is supposed to be Chinese translated to English:
Google did some kind of change to Translate and now a swath of sites I used to check are no longer readable.
I haven’t tried them in Chrome because, you know, fuck Google if they think they can force their browser on me that way.
Fix Translate so it works for everyone again, Google.
PadNews is reporting that Rockchip has announced Android 5.0 for its partners [Google Translate].
But their testing revealed battery life degradation and WiFi instability, among other issues. So it’ll still be a while before it gets to tablet owners via Rockchip’s partners — some of whom will slather a skin over it and do other mods (such as Five Technology with its iFive Skin).
