Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Has Big Plans For The NFL

August 17th, 2015 | Posted by admin in Android | Tablet - (0 Comments)

Did you know that the NFL has been using Surface tablets for over a year now to help assist coaches with the analyzation of plays? In short, coaches used to (and some still) use printers for pictures of plays so coaches, players, and other staff can look over which formations teams use throughout the game taken via cameras in the end zones and high up at midfield. Nowadays Surface 2 tablets are used in order to get the images during plays rather than after, plus the staff doesn’t have to wait for the printers to print.

The NFL is becoming the U.S.’s most high-tech sport! In fact, the partnership is growing in 2015 with new uses enabled by the Surface 3. The weather-ready Surface 3 allows coaches to display more images on-screen, use multiple colors for markups, and even has a whiteboard for jotting down ideas between plays. During the preseason, coaches will even be allowed to use their Surface 3s for video replays! On their tablet, they can zoom and even take down notes using the stylus–which can write during any weather conditions. But coaches will have to hold off until next year (maybe) to use their tablets during the games that actually count.

You might think using tablets on the sidelines is a little over the top for the NFL, but the tech frenzy doesn’t stop there. Microsoft is actually introducing the HoloLens for virtual reality training systems.

But what about the fans? Microsoft is rolling out its new version of its Xbox One NFL app, which is also making its way to Windows 10 later this month. The NFL is launching its Game Pass service, which replaces Game Rewind from last year, for $9.99 per month. Don’t worry, game stats, fantasy stats, and highlights will still be offered for free.

Microsoft Surface Tablets Being Used by NFL CoachesPerhaps the most interesting feature fans will be able to use this season is Next Gen Stats. This application uses the new motion tracker chips embedded in player uniforms for the 2015 season to track distance and speed. This will allow you to actually see the plays that each team runs!

The NFL is truly becoming a next-generation sport thanks to all of the technology that is being introduced. With coaches and teams utilizing things like the Surface Tablet, we are seeing the beginning of the future of both technology and professional sports.

When Square came out with their simple little card reader, it changed the business world. All you had to do was attach it to any smartphone or tablet and you immediate had a very easy, simple, handy and portable way to accept payments with credit cards or debit cards. Since then, the entire industry changed. Many different companies have popped up offering the same type of thing that Square does. And because of that, not only can small business owners expand their business and accept credit cards, but larger businesses can put themselves in different situations and make way more money.

There are also some companies that only put out apps that don’t require any type of hardware to be able to accept payments. One of these apps is called Poynt. This works by just creating an account, and then you can type in the numbers in the card without swiping them. In my opinion, Square is still the best for the job. You can use the hardware for swiping cards, and if something happens to the card reader, you still have the option of doing the job without it at all. You get the best of both worlds.

This technology is really fantastic not only for small or micro business owners. But if you are a part of a larger company who will be attending trade shows, or maybe you’re a convention vender, this is almost a must. You can rent several tablets at a time and send some people out on foot getting business. If your booth at your convention is really busy, then you are sure to have multiple people working with you to get all of your customers taken care of. Making sure each one of your employees has a tablet on hand capable of accepting card payments could literally double or triple your income for the day in about one third of the time.

Surface Pro 3 or iPad Air 2?

December 9th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

The quality of advertisements, especially in today’s technology market, are becoming increasingly bold. Case in point: Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3. In recent ads, the company has made direct comparisons to Apple’s line of highly mobile laptops and tablets, specifically against the MacBook Air. However, as far as business users are concerned a better comparison is between the Surface Pro 3 and the iPad Air 2, especially since the iPad Air 2 now supports a faster processor, a 64-bit architecture and a widespread adoption with business users.

In getting to the meat of things, it is important to understand that there are millions of iPads in user across the world as the tablet saw a 25% market share in Q3 2014 and the fact that the iPad is still a major seller in the tablet market. However, once you realize that the market share of the iPad has been declining since Q1 2014 while Microsoft’s market share increased . Regardless, the iPad is still ahead by a hefty margin and there are definitely pros and cons to each device when it comes to business users.

Surface Pro 3

The Surface Pro 3 comes with a thinner shell than its predecessor along with a 3:2 aspect ratio, allowing business users to run desktop apps without them looking weird when filling the screen. In addition to that, Microsoft also offers 3 different processor configurations with the Intel i3, i5 or i7. This gives business users more flexibility in what they want or need. The Surface Pro 3 also supports DisplayPort for connecting a monitor and a USB 3.0 port for connecting peripherals. A docking station for the Surface Pro 3 (optional) uses the power port to add networking, display and additional USB ports. Another neat feature is the touch pen. Microsoft’s OneNote app allows you to write notes in your own handwriting and then convert that writing into text.

However, there are some downsides to the Surface Pro 3. One of the biggest disadvantages is that the Surface Pro 3 is slightly heavy at 1.76 pounds. It weighs almost as much as two iPad Air 2 tablets. In addition to that, there is also no version that comes with built-in 4G connectivity, meaning you have to be connected to WiFi, though you can add a USB adapter for 4G service. Plus, Microsoft still hasn’t gained enough developers who make touch apps that run in the Metro tile interface. Even a cursory look reveals that there are still very few business apps, like Evernote and Skype, but hardly anything innovative or new.

iPad Air 2

The newest model of the iPad Air 2 improves on the original design without making any drastic changes. The new iPad Air is pretty intuitive, which has always been the main advantage for any business user. In addition to that, the iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than the last model and weighs just under 1 pound. The display is not as big as the Surface Pro 3 but it does have a bright, crisp 2048 x 1536 pixels (the Surface Pro 3 has a 2160 x 1440 pixel screen). The Air 2 has a 64-bit processor, lasts all day and offers improved graphics and video processing. Unfortunately, the specs won’t specifically draw in any business users. The apps is where the iPad really shines. The iPad Air 2 has millions of touch-apps and touch-enabled business apps whereas the Surface Pro 3 only has a handful. Although, the Surface Pro 3 can run millions of Windows desktop apps, which isn’t something the iPad Air 2 is incapable of. The iPad Air 2 also has 4G connectivity and a lower price point.

The Verdict

The iPad is still the dominant force in the tablet market. There are more apps, the user interface is more intuitive and there are tons of third-party accessories, cases, docks and add-ons. Moreover, the iPad Air 2 is designed to keep you connected over email and over the web. On the other hand, for widespread use in the enterprise business market it is clear that the Surface Pro 3 is beginning to take a more solidified spot as a mobile device that people are starting to take seriously in the business market.
