475762777For all of you out there that have to wear glasses, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to sit back and read a book or surf the web on your tablet without wearing them? As it turns out, pretty soon you will be able to. With new technology, screens will be able to correct vision problems.

The technology is going to be able to change the way images are displayed on a screen based on your glasses’ prescription. The screens will use different algorithms along with light filters to do this. Each pixel will be changed, and when the light passes through little holes in the screen, it will reach your eyes in a way that makes the image sharper for you as if you were either wearing glasses or had perfect vision. This can also work for people that can’t be helped with glasses. Even those who have physical defects that distort their vision could benefit from this technology, which is incredible.

There have been a few other companies that have attempted to create products like this before, but it has never really worked out to the extent that these new screens are going to. Brian A. Barsky, a computer science professor at Berkely, is working on this along with researchers from MIT and Microsoft. They are going to present a research paper at the International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques that explains the whole project.

The next step is to figure out how to use this technology to create a product that real life people can go out and buy and use on their own. There are still a few obstacles left to overcome, but the team is confident. At the moment, only one person specifically would be able to use the product based on their needs and their needs alone. But they are working on being able to make a product that has settings that can be changed and used by multiple people and shared.

lots of ipads

Click For Video

Technology is expensive, is it not? I know for a fact that I can’t go out and buy a brand new iPad whenever I want to. The more advanced technology gets, the more expensive it seems to get as well. Owning new devices can cost so much these days. Mind you that this isn’t just for personal use either. If you need a lot of iPads for one occasion, you could be looking into quite the price tag depending on the number that you need. Purchasing many devices at one time could definitely break the business budget. I don’t know about you, but I’m not the biggest fan of ultra large price tags (who is though?). This why there are rentals for tech devices like this. That’s right! You can rent iPads for any occasion should you want to!

  • Any type of tech convention
  • Certain classrooms or small time learning classes
  • Business meetings

These are just a few of the many options where a tech rental for iPads could really come in handy.

Tech Conventions

When you go to a convention that caters a lot to technology, you are going to see a lot of devices. One of the main devices you’ll see is the tablet. By now, I’m sure that we are all aware of ever growing tablet trend. Apple has done EXTREMEY well for themselves with the iPad. It’s the tablet that is still on top of the world. If you see someone on top of any type of competition, whether it’s sports, business, or tech, they’re at the top for a reason. If you are going as a vendor to a tech convention, why not rent your iPads to show off whatever service your promoting. It will help you engage more customers at the same time and possibly help make more sales.

Tech In The Classroom

We all dealt with the no CD players, cell phones, GameBoy’s, rules growing up in school, but times are changing. Technology is becoming more and more apparent, even in the classrooms. Ever heard of a smartboard? Since technology is becoming so dominant now, it shouldn’t be out of the question to embrace it with open arms and implement the use of iPads in the classroom. Whether it be in a training class, or a school classroom, iPads could easily help make the learning experience more interactive, fun, and immersive.

Your Business Meeting

The office building is where technology thrives. Computers. Printers. Laptops. Copiers. Projectors. They all have their respective homes in the office. When you get called to a meeting, you may not have those items with you to help you learn and become hands on with the topic at hand. By renting iPads and using them within the business meeting, you could make the meeting much more efficient. You’ve given everyone in the meeting an new rented iPad, so now they can stay on task, keep up with the boss and his speed on the topic, and feel just as important as the boss himself. Who knows! It may even spark some ideas within the meeting to help increase business and work flow if everyone is using an iPad.

The iPad is the most sold and used tablet around the world. There’s clearly a reason for Apple’s success with the iPad. Why not help make your next convention, training class, or business meeting a bit more fun and efficient without the added worry of buying all of the tablets you need. An iPad rental is only a phone call away! Contact www.RentOurTablets.com At 888-736-8301 Today.

I don’t know about you all, but I feel as if everyone in the world owns an iPad these days. They at least own some sort of tablet. That’s just the way that computing and mobile technology have gone. I feel like ever since the smartphone came out and started changing the game, all of the other tech devices followed suit. The smartphone made way for the tablet. Once the iPad came out in 2010, the numbers had skyrocketed from sales and even still today, there are still sales being made. That being said, some of the sales have dropped recently. Some experts think that this is reason for alarm. I think they’re dead wrong.

Death Of A Category?

Some would think that the tablet market is on its way out. These people are very wrong. At least for the time being, the iPad and the tablet market itself aren’t dying out anytime soon. People think that just because sales might be down a slight margin of a percent that the iPad is going to die. There could be some slight merit to the reasoning behind it but think about this; where are they going to go next? They can only do so much to make technology get more mobile. Unless they somehow develop a floating iPad or invisible personal assistant, the tablet market won’t be going out of style anytime soon.

The Tablet Is A Phone, But It’s Not

If you mean to sit here and tell me that your tablet isn’t a phone, I’d be one of the first people to tell you that you’re lying to yourself. The way that our smartphones are today suggests that our tablets are basically the same way. What I mean by that is that our phones have become so advanced and that we are so demanding of our technology that we want our phones to do everything. Our tablet is essentially our phone without texting and calling features. The best part is that there are still apps for texting and calling, even on the iPad. The way that it isn’t like a phone is because of the “upgrade system”.

Upgrades And Numbers

It’s all about he upgrades these days. Think of this. We upgrade our phones roughly once every year to two years. When is the last time you upgraded your tablet? You have to think about it even if you did, don’t you? Even when we upgrade our phones, we don’t pass them down to family. We get rid of them. We don’t do this for our tablets. This is exactly why the numbers seem to be dwindling for the tablet market. You will pass down a tablet or a computer. You’re not going to pass down a cell phone, and you’re going to upgrade a phone at a quicker pace. The tablets that come out don’t take as much of a daily beating as our phones do, thus making them a bit more resilient. Simply because you have all these factors affecting the numbers, this is why you have experts saying something that is completely false.

The iPad and the tablet market in general are going nowhere any time soon. Apple will still be making more tablets, just like Samsung, Android, and Google. Just because sales numbers look to be down comparatively over the past couple of years doesn’t mean that this is a dead category. Oh no my friends, the tablet and the iPad are still very much alive and well.

thinkpad8Microsoft has been struggling a little bit, especially after having to cut out so many jobs. New news from Lenovo just adds to the pain. Lenovo is the worlds largest PC vendor, and they have said that they are going to some selling one of their small screen Windows tablets in the United States.

On Thursday Lenovo confirmed that the 8.3 inch Thinkpad 8 would not be available on store shelves in the states anymore. On top of that, the 8 inch Miix 2 has already sold out in the states and there has been no word on restocking. This means that Lenovo is going to have zero small screen tablets available in the U.S.

The company has observed that their customers in the U.S. are more interested in Windows tablets with bigger screens, and they are really happy with the response that the ThinkPad 10 has gotten. The ThinkPad 8 has done way better in other markets like China, Brazil, and even Japan. They are pretty much just delivering the goods where they are wanted the most. Smart move for Lenovo, bad news for Microsoft.

The small demand may come from the fact that Microsoft ignored the small screened tablet world for a very long time. The iPad mini was already out and so were a lot of other Android and tablets, including Samsung’s Galaxy tab, before Windows even offered support for tablets of that size. By that time it was too late and the market had already been spoken for. Even Asus, Acer, and Dell has their own smaller tablets out on the market that had been doing pretty well. And even now, some of the apps for Windows are a little wonky on smaller screens. It’s just not working.

Microsoft still has a lot going for them with tablets. They do great with larger ones. They provide a superior computing experience, and tablets like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 have gotten awesome reviews.

Lenovo will probably offer smaller tablets again at some point, but for right now Microsoft is going to have to focus on their bigger tablets and possible start working on a game plan for their next shot at a big release of a smaller tablet. They have said that they will probably still put out another one in the U.S. before the end of the year to see how it does, so Microsoft should start preparing.

487079007Google is currently has a major project in the works, Project Tango. It’s a research project that is focussed on trying to create tablets and smartphones that are 3D-enabled and aims to produce devices that can learn and map the world. Google’s Project Tango lead, Johnny Chung Lee, stated that Google is currently teaming up with LG Electronics to build a 3D tablet that is rumored to go on sale sometime in 2015 and will have the technology to map out surroundings in 3D. The tablet is said to provide a 3D view of the world that will give incredible user experiences.

How is this going to work?
Google’s Project Tango uses a variety of sensors to see and map out the world around it in 3D technology, and now Google is trying to shape all that technology and information into a functional tablet. It’s rumored that the tablet will be sold as a $1,024 development kit later this year, so Google is building thousands of them. The biggest addition to this tablet is its camera and depth sensor, which lets the tablet take measurements of its surroundings, and then allows it to map out indoor locations. The tablet itself will feature a 7-inch screen, infrared depth sensors, two cameras, and advanced software that will be able to capture precise three-dimensional images of objects. The 7-inch tablet runs on a NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, Wi-Fi, BTLE and 4G LTE. A lot of different ideas have been tossed around about what this function can be used for, but the primary focus appears to be creating maps of the interiors of public buildings and to give its users a better idea of what’s around them. But still, everything is still being developed and tested for improvements and new ideas. Developers can be notified by signing up when the unit goes on sale later this year for $1,024.

lenovo-tablet-a8-50-blue-back-detail-8It’s almost inevitable nowadays to know that whenever you see new tech, you’re also going to see your wallet get really empty really fast. The price tags on all of the newest tech devices are just getting consistently higher it seems. I’m not one to think that EVERY device is that way, but I will say that there are certain products that seem to stay high in price. Tablets are one such device. Now as with everything though, you get what you pay for. If you want to get the best tablet on the market with all of the added bells and whistles, then that’s fine. You just need to be ready to pay for it. Lucky for us with pockets not as deep, there are much cheaper “budget” tablets.

Lenovo is a company that isn’t exactly known to offer the most incredible tablets, but they offer excellent entry level products that can help someone get accustomed to the tablet generation. Sometimes you don’t need a lot. Lenovo knows and understands that. That is why they’ve gone ahead and introduced another new budget tablet, their A8 tablet.

The Lenovo A8 is working with some decent hardware in terms of what is comparable to other 8 inch budget tablets out there. Mind you it might not be anything spectacular, it will still get the job done. The A8 houses a 1.3GHz MediaTek 8121 quad-core processor and comes with 16GB of stock storage space. You will only be working with 1 GB of RAM however unfortunately. Because of this, don’t expect to play any ridiculous video games. The levels and everything else may load properly, but expect to see long load times if you do decide to load them onto the tablet. The tablet also comes stock with a Mali 400 MP GPU. Definitely not bad. Again, it will get the job done. What really does help this tablet (as it would any tablet) is the MicroSD slot. This way, you’ll be able to expand the storage space on the tablet, should you need it.

The display of the tablet is on pretty common standards with other 8 inch tablet competitors as well. The A8 comes with a 1,280×800 pixel resolution display. With 189 pixels per inch, its definitely no iPad Mini With Retina Display, but it won’t distract you from browsing the web and operating your tablet as you would any other high end tablet. If you decide to watch HD video, it will still look very sharp as well, despite the smaller pixel resolution size.

lenovo-a8

Where this tablet sticks out a bit from the others is the addition of Dolby Digital app. This tablet unfortunately only comes with one speaker, meaning you’ll be dealing with mono sound instead of stereo. This app is still able to turn that one speaking into something that is able to make your sound shine a bit more. At a moderate volume, your sound will still shine through very nicely without it being distorted or distracting. Don’t be mistaken however. You will still need to work with the Dobly Digital app in order to make the sound fit perfectly for what you need.

This is, by no means, the best tablet on the market, but if you need something to perform basic functions, then this tablet may be what you need. For only $179, the Lenovo A8 is not a bad tablet to get for yourself or someone else who is just now getting into the tablet lifestyle.

tangoI’m the type of tech nerd that is all about embracing the future of technology. I look at new ideas with hope and wonderment, wishing that they will do something that has not been done before. Some may call this wishful thinking, and to an extent, I’d have to agree with them. There has to be something really crazy created in order to change the mobile technology game, especially in the tablet market. Every tablet has the “latest processor” or microSD storage on top of their 128GB of storage. There’s not been too much to add… until now. Google has decided to come in and stir things up a bit.

So what is it that Google has decided to do to shake up the pot? Four words that have me pretty excited: 3D and motion sensing.

Now I know this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this. The Leap Motion Controller is a device that is able to track depth and user hand motion, basically a way to control your computer without the need of a mouse. This is a cool concept if done correctly with adequate responsiveness. Google has decided to add their own version of motion sensing and 3D-sensing technology into a brand new tablet that they have in development.

Google has recently come up with a tech project called Project Tango that is slated to bring us new mobile technology with the addition of motion and depth tracking/sensing capabilities. Currently, the new tablet is in the prototype stage, so there isn’t much that can be determined. What can be confirmed is that it will come with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a decent number of cameras. The cameras are where this new tablet starts to take flight. If you take a look at the new promotional video for the tablet, you’ll see that there are three cameras and an integrated depth sensor. The two cameras on the back work with the integrated depth sensor to allow for applications that can implement full 3D motion tracking directly on the tablet. In terms of processing power, this new “Project Tango” tablet will have the latest NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.

Since the tablet is still in the prototype phase, it’s being distributed to a select developers with a software development kit just to see what can be created. There will be some 4,000 (rumored) prototypes delivered before the Google I/O conference later this month. Hopefully during that conference, the developers will have come up with something to show us. Needless to say, I’m a bit excited for this.

The price tag just for the prototype of this tablet is $1,024, so if developers are interested in working with this new tech and putting the software development kit to good use, then they’d better be ready to spend a pretty penny to make it all work. Even still, it would be a small price to pay if something incredible were to blossom from it.

Motion tracking technology is just an all-around cool concept. Who doesn’t want the ability to feel like their device is more an extension of their body rather than just a…. device. We will be able to see what this new tablet could be all about and how the software could work (hopefully) later this month at this year’s Google I/O.

galaxy tab sAs the tablet wars continue to rage on, we, as the consumers, have front row seats to everything. We and our wallets are the main goals for all of the tablet companies out there. Each one of them is trying to make the absolute best tablet they can in order to gain our loyalty. It’s almost sweet if you think about it. It’s not news to anyone, however, where most of the mass market consumer loyalty lies. Apple has the biggest share of that pie without a doubt. While I’m constantly stating that it is due to Apple’s popularity and the fact that they can be viewed as a fashion statement, I also know that their products are actually very good (I have a MacBook Pro and iPhone). Their biggest competitor, Samsung, may have just thrown the biggest blow towards them that any company has ever thrown yet; a tablet that can actually stand up to the iPad Air and iPad Mini With Retina Display.

In case you’ve yet to see, Samsung recently stepped up their game with the reveal of their new flagship tablet; The Galaxy Tab S.  This new tablet is Samsung’s answer to the iPad Air and iPad Mini. I guess you could say it’s their answer to Apple’s iPad, period. They’ve put just about everything they have into this new tablet. One thing that Samsung had to say about their new product was that they didn’t want to make another tablet that offered things that the iPad didn’t offer. They knew that people were buying the iPad still for a reason. Instead of utilizing ideals that Apple can’t offer, they’ve decided to offer some of the same things that the iPad Air and iPad Mini With Retina offer. To be quite honest with you, some of the specs are actually better than Apple’s. Some of Samsung’s software features even outshine Apple’s.

The Tab S is actually thinner than both the iPad Mini With Retina Display and the iPad Air. The Tab S comes in an 8.4 inch version, and a 10.5 inch version. Both of these versions of the Tab S offer the same inner workings and are actually slightly bigger than the iPad Air and iPad Mini. Both the rear-facing and front-facing cameras offer more megapixels on the Tab S than they do with either the iPad Air or iPad Mini as well. While the camera might not be a big deal, consider this; the displays on the Tab S are better the Air and the Mini as well, so you might be able to tell! The Tab S offers a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel display where as the Air and Mini With Retina only offer a 2,048 x 1,536 display. The other one-up that Samsung has over Apple with their new tablet is the fact that they support microSD storage, where as the Mini With Retina and Air don’t. Samsung has made sure to not hold anything back with this new release.

This is where the consumer ultimately gains the advantage no matter what. While there may be a few Apple heads out there (present, and accounted for), Samsung is offering a very nice alternative, priced to match Apple. So while these two giants are at war with each other, we still reap the spoils.

excite-7c-marquee-heroOur whole lives, we have been taught that you get what you pay for. Generally when we see a high tech gadget that is priced well below its competitors, we automatically assume that it is no good, and we should just save up for the upgrade instead of giving in to the good price and ending up disappointed. This new budget priced tablet from Toshiba, though, may just change the way we think about budget priced devices.

The 7 inch Toshiba Excite Go runs Android 4.4 KitKat and is priced at a mere $99.

One of the reasons that we may associate low price with low quality is that generally, top notch companies like Toshiba wouldn’t be putting out cheaper products. Most budget priced electronics are made by knock off brands that no one has ever heard of, or well known companies that are well known for being terrible. They generally leave much to be desired and feature bottom of the barrel components and specs. Would a bigger name like Toshiba let themselves put out such a cheesy product, even if it was cheap in price?

So far, it is looking like the answer to that last question is “no, they wouldn’t”. The Toshiba Excite Go is actually looking like it is going to be a pretty solid tablet. It has a 7 inch display, a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, and it is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor. The internal storage is pretty impressive for a budget priced tablet as well. It has 16GB of internal storage, and it also has a MicroSD card slot so that you can upgrade your memory by up to 128GB extra. Looking at all the specs, it doesn’t seem like this would be a very low priced tablet at all. It seems like it could actually be a pretty competitive device. It also offers up to 8 hours of battery life with normal use and up to 6 hours of watching videos.

It looks like Toshiba may be able to change the way we think about budget priced electronics with the launch of this new tablet. For just $99 maybe they will actually be able to deliver the performance and features that we all want for a price that we can all afford. I guess we will all be able to find out in June with the Toshiba Excite Go officially launches.

samsungtabIn all my years, I can’t deny that I’ve been mislead by different products and their hype. It’s like hearing how funny or scary that new movie at the theaters is. You get excited, and when you see it, it’s not nearly what you thought it would be because of all of the hype surrounding it. The same thing happens with new tech that comes out. You read the previews. You see how the company releasing the device paints the prettiest picture of their new product. They put it in the best light. You get so excited for it. You may justify some type of need that would deem it necessary to get the new device, and then it happens. You get your new device and you’re less than impressed. Unfortunately this is the way of the new Tab Pro 8.4 from Samsung.It’s not like the companies that create these different technologies intend on their products failing or not living up to the standards of their customers. The sad truth is though, is that as soon as you buy a new device, it’s obsolete. That’s just how quickly technology develops these days. There is always something better coming out or already out that you may be unaware of.The new Tab Pro 8.4 is as big as the number in its name; 8.4 inches. It’s part of the mid-size tablet family, and is lacking some of the design specs that came with the other tablets in the Samsung family, like the 8 inch Galaxy Note 3. One such example is the lack of the S pen stylus that comes with the Galaxy Note 3. Normally that might be a small inconvenience, but the fact that both of these tablets are priced at the same price makes it slightly more annoying out of sheer principle. That annoyance noted though, the screen resolution is better on the Tab Pro 8.4. The Tab Pro comes with a 1,600 x 2,560 pixel screen, with 359 pixels per inch. Thats much better than the 800 x 1,280 pixel resolution screen and 189 pixels per inch on the Note 3.

A tablet is much more than just screen size and resolution however. The software and apps of a tablet mean a lot as well. The software of the new Tab Pro 8.4 isn’t necessarily BAD, but some of the features that it COULD have come with didn’t show up, and I’m not exactly sure why. The Tab Pro allows for multi-window and multi-tasking features. This means that you can have certain apps going side by side the same time and go in between them. Only issue being that the side by side apps can’t work in conjunction with each other. If you have your email open and some type of “Word” document open next to it, and try to drag it over to attach it into the email, it won’t attach that way. That can be annoying along with the fact that it doesn’t come with any type of “Office” programs. The ones that come recommended feel like simplified versions once you download them.

Some other downfalls of the device include the camera and the advertised battery life. The camera itself is better than the Note 3 on the back. 8MP on the Tab Pro pitted against the 5MP of the Note 3. Even with the higher megapixels, the camera on the Tab Pro still takes about 4 seconds or so for the flash and image to fully process into an image, which seems a bit longer than it should be for a tablet. The battery SAYS 12 hours of video playback, but don’t expect to get that. While this 4800 mAh battery is better than the 3200 mAh batter of the Note 3, it’s still subject to the availability of Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G LTE. This means that it might have to try harder for certain program functions. That being said, you should still be able to get roughly 6 to 8 hours of constant use out of it before needing a recharge, and that’s not that bad I suppose.

All in all, the new Tab Pro isn’t BAD by any means, but its just not as “Pro” as the name makes it out to be. Then again, some people’s standards may be higher than others. If interested in this particular model, I highly suggest renting it before you buy so you can be sure that this tablet is the one you want.
