Several of my friends have asked “what is a tablet and what does it do for me”? I think I had better answer this question first before I get into the listing of Tablet manufacturers and the recent products they have released.

The tablet device has been a long-time inspiration for computer enthusiasts. The thought of having a powerful device that can handle everyday tasks expected of a desktop computer was first attempted by the IBM 5100 laptop. My uncle was an IBM for engineer and I remember the dinosaur monochrome laptop he had as if it was yesterday. This device was portable had tons of storage and could be connected to a 300 baud modem!! Ok, sorry for that little remembrance of yesteryear regarding ms-dos and 0s/2 but you have to give props to the originals of which you stand on.

Back to the tablets. For non-puter-types this device will allow you to accomplish the same things you do at home on your PC such as; viewing HD video on demand, viewing and editing high resolution photos, rip through hundred of emails in no-time, and last but not least connect with family and friends in ways you never knew possible through Facebook and other social sites.

But you say, “I have a laptop that can do this”. Can you just pull up a laptop and swipe through a recent birthday party video mash-up? Can you just pull up a laptop and share your favorite chapter of the current book/magazine you are reading and share with a friend? Can you just pull up recent reviews of your product online to a customer to show real-time feedback of what your product can do for them? No, only a Tablet can do this.

Bitcoin and Bitcoin Mining on Tablets

•April 19, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Bitcoin has become a valuable asset for mobile users because of dependable, inexpensive, and fast transactions. Apple, Google, & Windows have found their app stores filled with bitcoin utilities to ensure users can protect their bitcoin, transfer bitcoin, and securely store bitcoin. There are currently 200+ bitcoin related apps on the google play app store alone. A great starting point for beginners to learn about bitcoin and bitcoin mining can be found on www.DOSHost.net. Bitcoins are a high risk investment and bitcoin mining has even higher risks because of expensive hardware costs and complex software configuration. The value of bitcoin has significantly dropped from the beginning of the year because Mt. Gox, the Tokyo bitcoin exchange, filed for bankruptcy. The Chinese government is also strongly against the anonymous features of bitcoin. Investors will have to decide if these recent market disruptions are an opportunity to buy low or if these are signals for more problems in the future.
