...Tablet computer iPad (1st generation), a tablet computer A tablet computer, or simply tablet, is a mobile computer, larger than a mobile phone or personal digital assistant, integrated into a flat touch screen and primarily operated by touching the screen and instead of using a physical keyboard it often uses an onscreen virtual keyboard.

Convertible notebook computers have an integrated keyboard that can be hidden by a swivel joint or slide joint, exposing only the screen for touch operation. Hybrids have a detachable keyboard so that the touch screen can be used as a stand-alone tablet. Booklets include dual-touchscreens, and can be used as a notebook by displaying a virtual keyboard in one of them. An early information tablet concept, named the Dynabook, was described by a Xerox scientist Alan C Kay, in his Aug 1972 paper: A Personal Computer for children of all Ages, the paper proposes a touch screen as a possible alternative means of input for the device. The first commercial portable electronic tablets appeared at the end of the 20th century.

To Tablet or Not to Tablet – That Is the Question

...To Tablet Or Not To Tablet – That Is The Question Advances in technological development over the past four decades have created new opportunities and new ways to conduct business and explore the new channels of communication. Over the past several years, the growth in mobile technology and development of new advanced mobile devices such as smart phones and media tablets has increased the potential revenue of some businesses that have embraced the new technology and taken stops to secure a niche in the market. “Earlier this year, choosing the best tablet computer was as simple as knowing one model name: iPad.” (Consumer Reports). As of late August 2011, Apple’s computer tablet iPad and iPad2 represent over 61% of the market for tablets, leaving other companies such as Hewlett Packard laggin behind (Difference Engine: Reality Dawns). Simply put, it doesn’t matter if it’s the iPhone, the Macbook, or most recently iPad, everyone wants one, and if they can’t have it they want something as close to it as possible. It is important then, to explore what the iPad has that makes it the staunch front runner in the tablet industry. Not only has Steve Jobs of Apple Computers offered the world innovative and user friendly technological creations, with the release of each product, Apple’s success has forced its competitors to raise their stakes as well. Innovative, user-friendly, and in-genius are but a few of the many words that have become synonymous with Apple products. One of...

Choosing the Right Computer

...CHOOSING THE RIGHT COMPUTER SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 AMERICAN INTERCONTINENTAL UNIVERSITY ONLINE ABSTRACT Computers are being used for almost everything nowadays.

Tablet Computers

...Paper GS 1140 5 January, 2014 Paradigm Shift INTRODUCTION Tablet computers are small, thin, and convenient computers that will fit in the palm of your hand. They can be used for games, news, or work. They vary in size from the smaller 7 inch to the larger 17 inch models. The definition of a tablet computer from the pc-mag website is a general-purpose computer contained in a single panel. Its distinguishing characteristic is the use of a touch screen as the input device. Modern tablets are operated by fingers, and a stylus is an option, whereas earlier tablets required a stylus. (pcmag, 2013) SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS One impact of tablet technology is the use in education. I feel that information from any school book, dictionary, or encyclopedia at your fingers is a useful tool to have in education. The bulkiness of school books is non-existent with a tablet computer. I think it can be used as a powerful learning tool in and out of the classroom. Another impact of tablet technology would be in the workplace. You could have access to spreadsheets or inventory results at the palm of your hand. Access to these things could make your job a lot easier and more productive. Stopping work to look up information on a desktop would be irrelevant with a tablet on your person. Looking up the information on the fly would be a great time saver. Tablet technology in the medical field is another great way to utilize tablet computers portability. A physician could use it in......

Choosing the Right Platform

...Choosing the Right Platform The platform that I have chosen to publish my reading response on is Facebook. It seems like everyone and their dog has a Facebook account nowadays. Facebook introduced us to a new online world affecting how we use social media, as well as help us expand how we engage with other people. Even though many other social networking sites since Facebook’s debut, it is still one of the most used sites on the web. More and more people are getting their news and updates on what is going on in the public eye from Facebook. While other sites like, Twitter, Instagram, Vine etc, are also used daily from people all over the world, I feel that Facebook does a much better job of conveying good information on a global scale. Despite these other social networking sites helping people reconnect or remain in touch with friends, it appears (in my opinion) that Facebook does a much better job of sending out information that attracts the viewer’s eye. I’m sure that an argument could be made for these other social networking sites but, from a four year long Facebook user, it seems like a good match for this class. Since I will be using a platform for use in the classroom Facebook will suffice in displaying organized information for my classmates. Also, I’m thinking that a lot of people will use Facebook in this class as their platform, making it easier to comment on other people’s posts and interact online. If I was using other social networking sites I think the......

Choosing a Friend

...Choosing A Friend – October 2K10 WTLB CHOOSING A FRIEND I have found Jesus to be my true friend, and I can always depend on Him to guide me. Sometimes when the road gets rough, and the storms are raging in my life, He’s stands true. Sometimes God allows us to go through storms so we truly understand who He is.  It is then that we realize that He controls both the storms of nature, and the storms of the troubled heart. Jesus’ power can calm any storm, and help us deal with the problems we face. He is willing to help if we only ask Him. We should not discount His power even in terrible trials. He keeps making a way for me, and bringing me out without a doubt. In the darkest moments, He shows me there’s light at the end of the tunnel.   WHAT A FRIEND I HAVE IN JESUS. God will never forsake you; just put your trust in Him and not man. There are times when man will let you down, they change like the weather; but God is the same today, tomorrow and forever more. There were times in my life when friends changed like turn coats, and started throwing darts, persecuting me. But if I love God as my friend, I must have a forgiving heart. Even If you find it hard to forgive someone who has hurt you, forgive anyway. If appropriate, tell this person you would like to heal your relationship. Many times you will discover that the right action leads to the right feeling. Romans 12:18 reminds us that, “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceable with all men.”  I thank God......

Choosing the Right Pet for My Child

...Choosing the Right Pet for My Child ENG121 Composition I 6 August 2010 Choosing the Right Pet for My Child Choosing a pet can be a very challenging and difficult process. There are many things to consider before you can really choose the perfect pet. Pet type would be my first consideration. Other things to think about include how frequently the animal will have to visit the vet, whether there is a family member or friends that have pet allergies, and whether you want an animal that is a house pet, or if you want a pet that will stay in a cage or outside. Pet types to be considered are dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles and small animals like gerbils and hamsters. The most popular pet types are dogs and cats. In any case, choosing a pet should never be taken lightly. When considering a pet type, safety should be a major factor in that decision making process. A dog or a cat would be a perfect pet for my family. Either could easily fit my family’s life-style. Dogs have always been considered man’s best friend. Cats on the other hand are very playful; they are not demanding, they are affectionate and they can be your best friend too. Family interaction with a pet is very important. Dogs have to be walked daily. Many people love to walk their dog. It gives the owner the opportunity to exercise and enjoy it. Cats do not have to be walked. They are self sustaining. That is great for the very busy owner. Dogs come in different sizes. A dog’s size can range...

Tablets

...end up calling these things is tablets. The only reason we even consider calling them "mobile devices" is that the iPhone preceded the iPad. If the iPad had come first, we wouldn't think of the iPhone as a phone; we'd think of it as a tablet small enough to hold up to your ear. The iPhone isn't so much a phone as a replacement for a phone. That's an important distinction, because it's an early instance of what will become a common pattern. Many if not most of the special-purpose objects around us are going to be replaced by apps running on tablets. This is already clear in cases like GPSes, music players, and cameras. But I think it will surprise people how many things are going to get replaced. We funded one startup that's replacing keys. The fact that you can change font sizes easily means the iPad effectively replaces reading glasses. I wouldn't be surprised if by playing some clever tricks with the accelerometer you could even replace the bathroom scale. The advantages of doing things in software on a single device are so great that everything that can get turned into software will. So for the next couple years, a good recipe for startups will be to look around you for things that people haven't realized yet can be made unnecessary by a tablet app. In 1938 Buckminster Fuller coined the term ephemeralization to describe the increasing tendency of physical machinery to be replaced by what we would now call software.

The Tablet

...THE TABLET With two hands grasping a thin stone tablet, Priam struggled to leap into the tree in complete silence. The branch swayed under his weight and rustled its leaves. Priam froze. Too much noise! Too much! He drew himself rigid. He refused to breathe. His heart hammered within his chest. He was close now, the tall gray mass peeking from the breaks in the leaves. His senses heightened as if he were hunting, but his knees trembled, his breaths shortened and grew louder against his will, and his instincts told him to flee. But Priam battled his instinct and sprang into the final tree. Priam perched upon a branch near the edge of the forest, eyes wide. Priam would not release his tablet, he never wished to abandon it from his strong grip, so he lowered himself onto the branch with one foot and swung the other over the branch until he sat with his legs dangling below him. The wall had not fled. And he could watch it. It was an enormous gray mass, climbing high into the sky so Priam could only see it through the canopy if he ventured to the thinnest edge of the forest. The wall never darted into its land of the Others, those that had driven his people into the forest long ago. Yet it threatened Priam, to flee, to disappear, to leave him alone. So Priam skulked toward it every time as not to awake it from its slumber. He had been successful today, and he could breathe again. As he stared at the wall, he lifted the tablet before him, his tongue wagging from the side of his......
