Does it make sense to have a touchscreen on every gadget?

The last few years have seen the rise of touchscreens in our most personal gadgets: smartphones and tablets. This technology seems particularly fit for the two mentioned types of electronics. Before smartphones had big touchscreens we had to deal with small screens and hardware keyboards that took a large area of the front of the phone. At first I didn't believe replacing a good tactile keyboard is going to be worth it in screen real estate, but look at RIM now and its Blackberry phone layout an...

How to update to iOS 6 on the new iPad

As you're probably already used to, Apple launches a new major iOS update each year. Last year we had iOS 5, with the major update being the addition of iCloud, so this year iOS 6 had to add something new. From the 200+ features  added by Apple (see our previous article), the most important addition are the proprietary Apple Maps, which have replaced Google Maps [full list available here]. Youtube is also gone, so you'll have to rely on Safari or the Chrome browser to watch Youtube Videos. B...

What’s the price of a Windows 8 tablet?

With just a few weeks until the official Windows 8 operating system launch a lot of traditional Microsoft partners have already shown their upcoming products based on the new OS (read my IFA coverage). We know pretty much everything there is to know about these products, except a very important detail: how much will they cost. In the tablet market, pricing is very important, especially when we talk about Android slates, that have to overcome somehow the limitations of the OS, namely lack of p...

Why you should clean up your tablet before selling it!

We live in tough times when it comes to personal privacy, data security and financial threats that all come from the Internet. It's so easy to pin point the threats, but many of us don't realize we're going the same mistakes all over again. Knowing that we're doing things the wrong way doesn't justify our actions and surely won't help us when something bad happens. From not backing up our devices to setting passwords like "password", we've read tons of articles about stupid mistakes that cost pe...

How to hard reset an iPad: quick guide

One of the things that impresses people who see for the first time an iPad is its simplicity, the lack of buttons on the front, except the Home button, and the discrete ones on the sides. At first it would seem impossible to control such a device with only one button, but now pretty much every tablet out there has to deal with just a few buttons. This simplicity means you don't get a reset button or reset pin like you do on most electronics, so forcing the reboot of your slate might seem more...

What do Jailbreaking, Unlocking and Rooting Terms Mean?

I'm sure you have heard about these terms a lot, but since most of you don't know what they mean I thought of putting together a small post that will try and define in an easy to understand way the meaning of the terms jailbreaking, unlocking and rooting. But before we begin I think a warning is more than welcome: depending on where you live jailbreaking/rooting/unlocking your phone/tablet might be illegal or subject to copyright or other laws, so be sure to check your local legislation to ma...

How to Keep Data Safe on Your Tablet

Mobile computing is great, you now have at the touch of your fingertips devices that would make old computers freen with envy. But there's a downside to this: you now keep a lot of important data on very small devices that can be lost or stolen easily. And with the ever increasing threats we're facing online and offline it's easy to understand why loosing one of your tablets, smartphones or laptops could easily turn into a nightmare, and not because you have to shell out another couple of hundre...

Guide: How to Print From the iPad

One of the business features the iPad needs to have in order to be considered by the corporate world is the printing ability. Since iOS version 4.2 all iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches can print wirelessly to compatible AirPrint printers. As you can imagine, in classic Apple style this functionality is very easy to use if you have all the necessary devices (iPad, AirPrinter and wireless router), but you won't have access to all the settings and tweaks you're used to from your Mac/PC. In this s...

Guide: How to Speed up Browsing on Android Tablets

If you've read my last week's preview of the Samsung Galaxy TAB 7 Plus you know one of the issues I've found was low Internet performance with pretty much any app that needs an online connection. Browsers were the apps that seem to have the biggest issues with the 7 inch tablet. I first suspected the problem was with my wireless network, as I know the 1st gen iPad had a lot of connection problems with my gear, but now I have two routers to test things out and the browsing speed lag was not gone...

Windows 7 touch optimizations for tablet: a practical guide

We have discussed this many times: Windows 7 is a great OS, but not what you'd expect for a touch tablet, that's why the best slates out there are the ones powered by iOS and Android. That doesn't mean they're perfect, as contrary to them, the complexity of Windows 7 is what some people are looking for, and when that's the only alternative things happen: Justin Campana, a known Windows modder, has posted a tutorial about how you can convert the Windows 7 user interface to make it a lot more fin...
