Taking the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 for a spin 1

Taking the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 for a spin

Before I even talk about this device, I have to say something about its name. I know many journalists were bitching about model names being reduced to something like “GT-I9500” or “SM-P600” as being very confusing.

iPad vs Windows Pad (Dell XT2)

We’re trying to standardize onto Ubuntu at work and we need hardware that works really, really well.  One thing that I thought might be nice to have in the office was the Dell XT2 tablets.  Not that I expect everyone to have one, but I thought there might be at least a handful of users that would appreciate them.  Especially those at the office that use iPads (albeit there are...
