Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Hands-On

If you’ve been scoping the market lately for a full fledged tablet computer, then the Pro 3 of the Microsoft Surface Series should be right up your alley. According to the latest technology news, Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the latest installment of their super tablet line, and quite frankly is pretty impressive considering the extra bucks needed to acquire it.

The Design

With a thinner chassis and slick design, the Surface Pro 3 has managed to pull off a unified device to end all other devices, (for the time being). With a larger 12-inch, 2160×1440 high resolution display, and a aspect ratio of 3:2, the difference in the Surface Pro 3 is immediately noticeable, especially while it’s being used in notebook-style (which is more laptop-like than its previous version. The Surface Pro 3 also feature a cool new kickstand which makes it easier to set up and use, and this version is also optimized for a digital pen, which is a nifty additional.

The Hardware

Considering a thin (9.1mm) chassis, the Surface Pro 3 features some serious hardware. Along with having i-series core options of i3 and i7, the Pro 3 still runs on a 15W Haswell ULT SoC. And if you go for the i5 option, you will get a dual-core/4 thread Haswell part along with a 3MB L3 cache. According to the latest technology news regarding the Surface Pro 3, the top speeds of all variations of its CPU cores are 1.9GHz base frequency and 2.9GHz max turbo, which makes it a pretty impressive machine which is able to perform at low thermals for the serious users. Both 64 and 128 GB of storage come with 4 GB of RAM, while those with 256 or 512 GB storage feature 8 GB of RAM.

Since the keyboard is an important component in all laptop/Tablet devices, the Surface Pro 3 type cover is clearly designed for improved precision for both artists and inkers alike.

For the techno geeks out there, the 64 GB version has more than 36 Gs’ of available disk space, and the 128, 256, and 512 GB variations come with the 96, 211, and 450 GB, respectively. In terms of storage, the 64 GB Surface Pro can be compared to a 32 GB iPad. That being said, the Surface is way more powerful. The surface features a full-size USB 3.0 port and a Mini DisplayPort, along with a MicroSD card slot as well, for up 128 GB of additional storage space.

Battery Life
The pen uses a single AAAA battery and two coin cell batteries, while Microsoft claims that the Surface Pro 3 features a battery which allows it to get juiced for the whole day after a single charge.

The Verdict
So, the one question that has been bugging some people is the SATA-based drive and why Microsoft hasn’t switched to PCI-E yet. We think that the reason might be that PCI-E SSDs are a bit longer than the mSATA SSDs.

It seems that Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella has taken the route of Apple Inc., which is that using cutting-edge technology only leads to an increase in prices (and not to mention a reduced profit margin). So, if it’s fast enough already, why push the tempo by adding hardware which will only lead to the device being more expensive than it already is.

Bottom Line
Since the latest, MacBook Pro is around 4.5 pounds, (which is one super heavy tablet) and considering all other Tablets, Android or otherwise cannot be considered as super-computers, which is a serious deal breaker especially for the pros, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 seems like the obvious choice for those who want to enjoy the latency and transfer rate of a high-end Tablet computer with real practical usability.


Linn Kiko a Premium Sound System with Superior Sound

There are plenty of speaker systems out at the moment that offer good sound plenty of options for connections from Bluetooth to Apple’s AirPlay and all come at a nice enough price. These focus mostly on having variety and the streaming, and arguably save money in the audio department where though the sound can be above average, to get the best you have to pay a little more money.

The Linn Kiko is a sound system that looks more to the high end of the price scale and concentrates on the audio aspect and the looks of the system which some would argue is just as important. When these systems are made to fit into your living room you need it to look good, and the Linn Kiko definitely fits that bill.

The Kiko sound system is a high end model in not only sound but also looks. With its elegant and fashionable look, with curves in all the right places you should find no problem in fitting this into your living room if this is the placing of choice. Colours available are silver, champagne, blue (dark and light), white and black so there is plenty of choices to fit your personal needs. One drawback (or could be a positive based on your needs for the system) is there are very little controls visible at all, no high tech touchscreen here. Just a blue LED display and power switch, it’s a minimalistic look to fit the design. For most of the functionality you’ll need your computer, smartphone or tablet though there are a few controls available for skipping songs etc. on a remote that is provided.


The main aim of the Kiki is to be able to play your music easily and quickly without having to spend too long installing anything. This is done through your network, so it’s easy to connect to things like AirPlay, internet radio services and music apps like Spotify. Software is provided by Linn (Kinsky software) this allows connection through tablets, smartphone and your computer. One of the surprising things though is there is no wireless internet for the Kiko, it will have to be wired up to your router by an Ethernet cable. This is quite against the minimalist design in a way. What this does though is improves sound quality and connection speed as you’ll have no problems that Wi-fi can sometimes have.

As well as the connection to your router to connect to your network there are also HDMI ports available as well as phono audio and coaxial digital inputs. This means that you can connect the sound system up to your television and Blu-ray player to use the Kiko’s audio system for output. The one problem with the Kiko as hinted above is that there are going to be wires coming out of the system, the speakers for example have quite a thick wire going to each. Part of getting the look of the Kiko right for your home will obviously be finding a place to hide these wires. Once they are hidden of course they won’t cause many problems at all.

Audio Quality
For an expensive audio system like this you’ll be expecting high end sound and that’s what you’ll get with the Linn Kiko. For a system that uses speakers that are quite small the small amplified drives pack plenty of punch and show why the Kiko is such a special system. Ranging from the quiet listening experience to the loud there is still plenty of punch and high quality sound that shows where your money went.

The big problem you’ll have with the Linn Kiko is finding the excuse to spend £2,500($4,048) on it, but for a premium audio system it’s definitely worth it. The drawback of having to use the Ethernet connection to connect to your router and the internet is a drawback but once the system is up and running and you hear the sound quality it makes it worth it.


Make Your Products Known by A Million People Effective Marketing Strategies

Don’t wait at home for your customers to come and buy your products; remember, they are used to choose which to buy through their experiences and what their friends and family members tell them. Here I have some tips about marketing, hope they are helpful to you.

The recommended marketing strategy we are going to talk about is EDM, Email Direct Marketing. The marketing mails we make usually consist of 3 types. The first one is notification type.

Notification Type

Notification type is usually used to notice the customers your new activity, for instance, upgrades or modifies of your website. This kind of mails contains more words than pictures, and its target is often your registered customers. Sometimes, we use notification mails especially when we have no promotional sales for a long time, and to some extend the notification mails express our voices “You haven’t visit our website since last month, why don’t you come and shop around? I promise you won’t regret.” During my tests, I found out that notification mails with portrait are more believable than those without portraits. The portraits can be your CEOs, chairmen or other senior leaders. Make sure the portraits are friendly and professional.

Invitation Type

The second type of marketing mails is invitation. From the name you can easily guess this kind of emails is for attracting and inviting new users to register as your users. As a result, invitation mails have to be designed with great care. It’s the pioneer who drags the customers’ attentions, thus the importance and significance of invitation mails can be ignored in no way. In invitation mails, you exhibit the best and most competitive products and try your best to make your website more reliable because it’s a totally strange one to the receivers. Nowadays, we often add SNS icon at the bottom of a mail, such as twitter, face book or my space. This is convenient but one thing has to be mentioned here is that adding these SNS icons would increase the possibilities of being judged as a junk mail.

Sales Promotion Type

The third type of mails is mostly used during


. Sales promotion mails are usually designed in order to show the unique products and attractive discounts or prices. When sending sales promotion mails, don’t use words like “free”, “free shipping”, or “low price”, they are not attractive anymore and likely to arouse dislike. Don’t emphasize your prices too much; you know that sometimes low prices give the feelings of low qualities, too. Finally, remember to keep a balance between pictures and words. Too many pictures increase the junk mail risk; meanwhile too many words make readers lose their patient.

Make special screen come, deal with, print printing of one specially

In industrial application, silk screen printing factory can face some non- ordinary requirements frequently, peculiar surface configuration, size, fiber, material make up, and this screen print numerous one fraction test, processing factory face just. Whether the silk can become the first-selected way in industrial application to print, depend on whether it could meet these requirements, this will bring the equivalent profit to the manufacturer too.

Seal a not data plate, oven faceplate or film switch 96223767 produced in batches most difficult to print in industrial application, but control panel and box. But level metal parts, control panel and other the intersection of heavy industry and functionality of assembly than getting ornamental and conspicuous, pattern too relatively simple, 1-2 the intersection of trade mark and structure of color usually, nearly all kinds of product this come polishing or blow the sand, process into through metallize. What is seal one of the really unusual and challenge silk screen printing factory on earth? It should be a print picture on the bolt, insert, trap door, protrusion, first class outstanding surface of socket.

The traditional printing method can’t meet the printing requirements of these products, but the modified silk can well solve these problems to print technology. Generally, there are 3 kinds of main printing ways of warning the slogans in the commercial installation: Pad printing, pasting the ceramic decalcomania paper or screen printing directly. Ink jet printing, computer wash imaging, etches and can also consider, but unwise.

Technology of pad printing

As to the irregular surface, print the association of dealers and consider pad printing at first. However, in most situations, pad printing is not the good solution. Though the suitable curved surface of pad printing is printed, must be a concave and convex face levelled that it demands to bear and print the surface of things, so to the industrial articles that we said, pad printing was not applicable. Moreover, the printing breadth and quantity of pad printing can’t meet the requirement for this kind of printed matter.

The plate change cost of pad printing is another question, the silk screen can be kept for a long time and utilized again, but pad printing printing plate life time is only probably 12 months. Generally speaking, pad printing is only suitable for printing the embossed surface levelled, and unsuitable to print form, button, switch,etc., so, the industrial application discussing as to here is unsuitable.

Ceramic decalcomania paper

Printing trader’s regular meeting chooses the making that the ceramic decalcomania paper finishes some printed matters without very good solution. As to bear, print thing is can until the ceramic decalcomania paper male mold cut out the opening together often while being external while being special, in order to abdicate the special external position, or use many small-scale ceramic decalcomania paper in order to avoid the special surface.

The silk is printed, the mould is cut and the high-quality decalcomania paper to such small products which print quantity, it is a kind of cost that is wasted. Even if adopt the number to print, the model cuts the apparatus, the cost is still considerable, and unable to ensure the quality of products. In addition, it is not usually takedown once ceramic decalcomania paper is applied to the Console or instrument and equipment, make the ceramic decalcomania paper limited on adjustability like this. Because while using the ceramic decalcomania paper, no matter which kind of adhesive you use must use the fixed equipment of the rivet. In another aspect, there is not this worry in the direct printing label.

Screen print

Screen print, seem not to be fit for this kind of job. Because the screen will be born on the protruding surface which print the thing and exposed, even the protruding surface is not sharp, the screen will present the screen and relax or draw and deform picture and text too when exposed to with it. The problem lies in how to overcome this question.

It is the key to solving this problem to make appropriate screen. Method to reserve cavity, with bearing and printing things and fully keeping in touch during printing screen of enabling in the intersection of screen and corresponding place. But such revision will make the printing course become and produce manually, quality and size resulting in printing the picture are apt to change, so, the printing quantity of these products require less than 1000, even is lower than 100.

Printing equipment

Just as above-mentioned, when screen printing the ornamental craft used for products manually, need to standardize the printing equipment, mainly follow some following requirements:

1. Accurate positioning;

2. Guarantee it is fixed on screen system that the screen is stable;

3. Guarantee it is accurate that the lifting gear of the screen hoists or lower the position;

4. Printing a system can accept the device of different rules is allocated.

In most printing factories, these parameters of the printer are according to being used to the self-defining ink eraser.

Install one or more of ink erasers in a printing unit. These chasings demand to have appropriate tool-holder, M moderate hardness and chasing blade. If need to use the soft chasing (such as the surface of printing wrinkle, it is crooked and too big to choose the rigid work bar soon in order to avoid the blade.

Logitech V450 Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse Review

I recently got to try the Logitech V450 Cordless Laser Notebook mouse due to my work letting me order a few in for my PC workbench. I was trying to cut down on cable clutter, as I can have several laptops on the bench at one time and I have enough cords (power, ethernet) that are already in the way.

I decided on this mouse over several other notebook mice for a few reasons.

First of all, this mouse is the only wireless notebook mouse Logitech makes at the time of this writing that is Laser.

Secondly, it is a standard RF mouse and has infinite compatibility with any kind of computer (Mac, Linux, Windows) without the need for special drivers or Bluetooth.

The benefits also don’t stop there. Since this is an RF mouse, the battery life (on the included 2xAA batteries) is claimed to be “up to one year”. I haven’t had this model long enough to test that claim, but it hasn’t ran out of batteries yet. Laser mice tend to draw less power than optical in general, though. The unit automatically shuts itself off if you store the receiver in the mouse, it also has a power button on the underside.

The mouse is small, almost too small for comfortable use for prolonged periods of time, but it works great for what I use it for. If you ever need to travel with a mouse, you want it to be as small as possible, and this one succeeds at that. It comes with an extremely small receiver (pictured) that slides into the underside of the mouse for easy storage. The USB receiver does stick out the side of your laptop, though, albeit a very small amount. It is very easy to lose it.

Additionally, the benefit of laser mice in this form factor is versatility in handling the variety of weird surfaces (glass, glossy wood, etc) you might encounter while traveling that throw off the sensor on even the best optical mice. Laser mice don’t have nearly the amount of tracking issues on these surfaces.

Overall, I’m quite pleased with the unit, other than a few small complaints. I am eager to see if Logitech releases a Bluetooth version of this mouse at some point.


Great battery life

Works on many surfaces optical mice can’t

Great compatibility



No Bluetooth – Receiver takes up a USB port and sticks out

People with adult-sized hands may find it to be too small

No carrying case


Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse Review

This review of the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless was born out of necessity… a need for a new mouse due to me going insane from the last one. My trusty Logitech MX1000, after about a million left-clicks, started having issues with the left mouse button randomly dropping out while I was in the middle of a drag operation in Windows, and was losing me files and email in the process into who-knows-which folder. It was time for something new before I ended up throwing it against a wall. It had a good run and will receive a proper burial.

Since Logitech no longer makes the MX1000, I had to find a newer mouse, my only real requirements were that it was wireless, laser (not optical) based, not insanely expensive, and that it had a rechargeable battery. I ended my search with the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse (, ~$79 retail).

As far as design is concerned, the Logitech G7 is less like the MX1000 and more like the G5 and MX900 series, which are more form-fitting for larger hands. I have long fingers, so it seems to work pretty well for me. It’s black with a sort of pseudo-carbon fiber checkered pattern on the top. There is a battery door underneath with a quick-release eject button (more on why this is used a lot later).

The Logitech G7 has a few buttons more than a standard mouse, the scroll wheel, which can rock left or right to click things, and a side button that activates the “Back” button in most browsers (I’m unsure why there isn’t a “forward” button next to it like on most of these mice, but I’m sure a reason exists somewhere… Logitech?). Additionally, there are two buttons below the scroll wheel marked + and -. These adjust the DPI sensitivity of the mouse. The highest setting is 2000DPI, and a LED that doubles as a battery meter on the mouse shows you when you adjust it by denoting a little running man with a meter next to him. The other settings are 400DPI and 800DPI. I found leaving the mouse on the middle setting (800 DPI) was good enough for me. Not too fast, not too slow. I suppose if I were gaming a lot, I’d like the higher DPI setting.

The mouse also includes a very small USB RF receiver. The battery charger is separate, and takes up another USB port. You can plug the charger in via USB and plug the RF receiver into the on board USB port on the charger if you wish, also. Two batteries are included.

On to the battery itself: This mouse eats batteries for breakfast, lunch and a light snack before dinner. On average, my Logitech MX1000 lasted around a week on a single charge. I’m lucky if I get two days worth of average computer use out of the battery in the Logitech G7 Laser. Normally I’d be pretty ticked about this, but they include two batteries with the device just for this reason, I think. When the battery dies, you can swap the dead battery into the charger and be back up and running in a few seconds. It takes about 3 hours to charge properly, there’s also a “burst charge mode” on the charger if you want quicker charging for immediate use, which I’ve never tried.

Overall, this is a pretty darn good mouse that I’d recommend for anyone looking for a better-than-average mouse with great tracking, especially for a wireless model. It works on many different types of surfaces due to the laser sensor, even glossier stuff that optical mice can’t track on. Don’t hesitate to buy one if you’re looking for a mouse in this price range.


Making the Most of Press Releases

As a business you often have to release press releases to inform news sites and bloggers of your latest news. This can be announcements of new products for sale, changes in important people within the company or even awards that have been won. They can be comments on news that have been put out, but in short they are a way to get your statement out into the world of the internet and have news about your company not only potentially on the news websites but actually in print.

This is of course good for advertising and done right it will get more attention for the news you are trying to propagate. One thing it must also do though is be used for SEO, back linking and exposure of your company. Press releases are more important than just the information that they are providing they also provide the press/blogger with keywords and connections to your company and your desired pages on your own site.

The use of Press Releases
The first thing to do is of course to get the content right. This is important as it not only has to be good quality but presented in a way that entices the press and potential readers to actually take notice. Keywords must be added to this for SEO purposes, to get the attention of the search spiders that will be crawling over the internet to find important pages. These important pages will of course be the “news items” that have been created by using your press release, and if the keywords that you have placed within the release are being used this will of course find their attention.

Remember that this press release will no doubt be on your site too, so be sure to use media that will entice the reader to visit the page for the information. Use SEO friendly images and videos to add to the statement and above all make sure that everything that is included is done to a professional standard. Press releases are above all some of the most important announcements that you can make and all eyes will be on these so that information can be pulled out of them. This is of course why the information must be there. Remember also that after the main announcement you must provide details for the editors with information about your company and any other company/product that has been mentioned within. These areas are also good to provide the excuse to add keywords too remember, which will be keywords connected to the subject at hand.

Press releases have one important goal in the end and that is to share news that will be propagated by many people of both the press and the blogger world, and never forget the use of social media to share the news. Catch the readers interest and sell yourself in it, be sure to not oversell though, there is of course a balance. The people you are aiming the information at read these things every day and often go over the information with a fine-toothed comb, so be sure to make it truthful. The important factors are, just like with any other SEO friendly piece of content, make it quality, to the point, do not stray off topic and be sure to catch the eye of your audience.
