A Week With Windows 8: Day Four – Getting To Know 8

A Week With Windows 8: Day Four – Getting To Know 8

So I’ve been using Windows 8 constantly now for four days and I’m starting to get used to it. That doesn’t mean however that I am starting to like it. I’m finding myself basically staying away from Metro as much as humanly possible, but here is what I’ve found so far…  The Four Corners Each and every corner of Windows 8 has a different feature, which, so far as... »

A Week With Windows 8: Day Three – A Users Perspective

A Week With Windows 8: Day Three – A Users Perspective

So I’m a techie and somewhat of a Windows expert – so I wanted to get a ‘normal users’ point of view about how well Windows 8 works. Last night I gave this laptop to my girlfriend Jenny to work with. Whilst she was playing around, I went out for a run to ensure that she had some time alone with Windows 8. Around 30 minutes later I come back to find a very unhappy Jenny. I a... »

A Week With Windows 8: Day One – Finding My Feet

Ok, so I’ve been running Windows 8 on my laptop for 24 hours now and so far I am finding it very difficult to use. I would say that my productivity has gone down by at least 50% during the last day. But as the title says – I’m still finding my feet with it, so maybe things will get easier…I hope! So what have I been doing for the last day? Well the main thing I’ve bee... »

A Week With Windows 8

A Week With Windows 8

Windows 8 hasn’t exactly got the best rep at the moment. The general consensus amongst most IT professionals and users alike is that Windows 8 is a disaster waiting to happen. A while back I wrote a review on Windows 8, but when writing a review they tend to be more based on first impressions rather than how a system actually grows on you. So, in the interest of fairness I have decided to gi... »

One Week With Only My Tablet: DAY FOUR

One Week With Only My Tablet: DAY FOUR

I GIVE UP!!!! Today I’ve been working through my mountain of daily emails and in the process I’ve been doing things like manipulating documents in QuickOffice Pro, sending and receiving emails and also general things like checking Google+. With it being Monday today, I have been much busier than on previous days, so I have really felt it today. I’ve just finished posting the Jump... »

One Week With Only My Tablet: DAY THREE

[hr] 22/07/2012 17:45 Ok, so it’s a sunny Sunday afternoon here in England, I’ve been out at the Zoo all afternoon with my lovely girlfriend so I haven’t really had a chance to do much geekery on my tablet. Plus my in box has been quiet due to it being a Sunday. However, I have been doing general things like catching up on Google+, replying to the few emails I have received and a... »

One Week With Only My Tablet: DAY TWO

[hr] 21/07/2015 10:14 So it’s day two and I have to admit, I’m starting to get pretty frustrated now. My Nexus 7 is fine for doing things like sending emails and a little bit of browsing, but now I’m using it for ‘heavier’ things, like long emails, documents and most importantly, managing this site. I’ve only published a handful of articles via my tablet (two of... »

One Week With Only My Tablet: DAY ONE

[hr] 19/07/2012 23:57 Ok, so this is the second post I’ve written on my tablet, the first being the announcement of this week with only my tablet… Unfortunately it’s a case of so far, not so good. The announcement post of around three paragraphs would have ten mere minutes to bash out on my laptop – on my tablet it took over 45 minutes! This is because I couldn’t uplo... »
