Review: Boxwave True Bamboo Minimus Case for iPad Mini



The bamboo plant grows in single stalks, called culms. An extremely fast growing plant, as much as 39’’ in one day, each culm grows to full height and strength within 2 years. Between years 3-5, a fungus begins to grow along the outside of the stalk, eventually overtaking the bamboo and destroying it from the inside out sometime 5-7 years into its life. 


Harvested, then, during years 2-4, the bamboo plant finds purpose as a food source, a building material, and as a raw product in things like textiles, paper, and musical instruments. 


The True Bamboo Minimus Case features an ultra slim, anti-slip design, fitting like a glove instead of a winter coat: real protection without sacrificing functionality and range of motion. 

A great combination, the Bamboo backing of the True Bamboo is surrounded by either our Jet Black or Winter White Minimus Case shell. This shell is constructed using hard plastic and enhanced with our signature SmoothTexture finish. 


SmoothTexture finish is known for its:
  • Strong resistance to oil, grease, and fingerprints
  • Softer feel
  • Ability to repel surface dust

The True Bamboo Minimus Case: Maximum Protection, Minimal Bulk.






True Bamboo Minimus Case Features:


  • Edge and interior treated with our SmoothTexture finish, making it soft to the touch
  • Beautiful bamboo wood backing
  • Cutout for camera/flash, top buttons, side volume control, charging port
  • Snap-fit attaches easily and securely
  • Lightweight & durable


Conclusion:
This is definitely one of the best and creative iPad mini cases that I have seen. 
The bamboo looks great, especially on the white iPad mini. 

Price: $24.99


Rating: 4/5

Internet On The Go With Your iPad

When you use an iPad you need to consider the ways that you can connect to broadband while on the go.  The ways that you are able to connect will vary depending on the iPad that you have and the mobile broadband package that you choose to use.  It is important that you consider all the options that you have available.  The first step in doing this will be to determine what you can use with the iPad that you have.  You should then look at all the different mobile broadband options that you can get from the different providers. 







The Type of iPad You Have

There are two kinds of iPad on the market and you need to know which one you have.  The type of iPad that you have will determine the type of Internet on the go that you can use.  The first type of iPad that you are able to get is the 3G and 4G enabled iPad.  The second is the Wi-Fi only iPad. 
When you have an enabled iPad you will be able to use a range of different Internet on the go options.  There is one particular option that you can only use with this type of iPad.  These are the iPad Micro SIM deals.  To use these deals you will have to have an iPad that can read the SIM card you are getting. iPad Minis use a nano SIM rather than a micro SIM.
With a Wi-Fi only iPad you can also choose from a range of different options.  However, you might find yourself slightly limited when it comes to connecting on the go.  You should technically consider all of this before you purchase the iPad.



Connecting with Wi-Fi Hotspots

One of the ways that you will be able to get broadband on the go with both types of iPad is through the use of Wi-Fi hotspots.  There are more and more hotspots in the UK and abroad.  When you use this connection you will be connecting your iPad to a Wi-Fi signal that is hosted by someone else.  The wireless signal could be free or part of a subscription network.
Many restaurants and coffee houses will have free Wi-Fi for their customers.  This is the same with a number of hotels and pubs.  In many city centres you will be able to find free and paid for hotspot areas.  The hotspots that you have to pay for will generally be free for certain people.  These people will be existing customers of the company that is hosting the hotspot.  This means that if there is an O2 hotspot, customers with O2 will be able to use this for free while other people may have to pay for this. 
The problem with relying on hotspots is that they are not everywhere.  You have to know where the hotspot is or hope that there is going to be one where you are going.



The Use of Sim Only Deals

One of the most common ways that iPad users are able to connect to the Internet on the go is through SIM only broadband deals.  These deals will only work with the enabled iPad because they are the only ones that are able to use the SIM card on offer.  When you get one of these deals you will have a SIM card that you insert into the iPad.  The iPad will read the SIM card and connect you to the appropriate network. 
The amount of data and the speeds that you are going to be getting are determined by the deal and the provider you are using.  There are two different mobile broadband networks that you can connect to and they are the 3G and 4G networks.  Of course, you have to ensure that the iPad you have will be able to connect to the network you are looking at. 
It is possible to use comparison websites like uSwitch to determine the best SIM only deal for you.  When you look at these deals you have to consider the coverage of the provider and the amount of data that you are going to be getting. 



Using a Mi-Fi Device

Another way that you will be able to connect to the internet using both types of iPad is though the use of a Mi-Fi device.  These devices work as a portable modem and router for mobile broadband.  When you use the Mi-Fi device you are going to be connecting to the mobile broadband signal through a Wi-Fi connection. 
The SIM card that you need to connect to mobile broadband will be placed in the Mi-Fi device.  The device will then read the SIM card and connect to the mobile broadband network.  Once this has been done the device will emit a cloud of wireless signal that allows you to connect to the mobile broadband.  This is often considered to be the best option for people who have an iPad that is Wi-Fi only. 
The reason for this is that people who have an enabled iPad feel that the Mi-Fi device is an unnecessary step between them and the broadband.  It is possible to find a range of different deals for the Mi-Fi device.  There are many providers who offer these devices to their customers.  There are also a number of generic devices that you will be able to get.  When you purchase a generic device you will be able to use a SIM card from any provider in it. 



Tethering Your Smart Phone

The last option that you have to get Internet on the go with an iPad is to tether the iPad to your smart phone.  When you do this you are going to be transforming your smart phone into a mobile hotspot and allowing the iPad to connect to mobile broadband through a wireless signal.  However, this is considered to be a final option for many people. 
The reason for this is that many mobile networks do not allow it, and it also consumes a lot of batter.  It is possible that your battery will be depleted very quickly when you use your phone in this manner.

The Great Debate: Samsung Vs. Apple, Which Tablet Is For You?

Apple really made a leap of faith with the release of the iPad as investors really did not envisage an oversized iPod touch to be the success it is today – but amazingly enough, the iPad broke records by selling 10 million units in its third quarter. Ever since its success Apple competitors have been fast on their heels, with Samsung managing to put up a fight with its recent releases. But is it enough to topple the tablet heavy weight?


We take a look at the two competitors to find out who ultimately comes out on top.



Apple

The iPad was the first tablet and for a very long time remained unchallenged in sales, consumer satisfaction, performance and design. Currently running iOS 7, it’s fast and easy to use. Apple has always been innovative and user-focused, so it’s no surprise that the iPad’s biggest strength is how user-friendly it is.

The iPad is remarkably simple in design and relatively free of lag. Its retina display is also top-notch and its portability has just been increased with the release of the iPad Air, measuring less than 7.5 millimetres thin and 500g in weight. The specs aren’t likely to surprise anyone as they are as good as one would hope to expect: sporting Apple’s new A7 chip and the M7 motion coprocessor, it gains ground in energy consumption and speed, which, according to Apple, has been doubled.

The iPad’s design hasn’t changed much in its four generations. While some might criticise the lack of diversity and variety, these criticisms often fall on deaf ears. There is a reason for keeping this design: it works. People love it; it’s sleek, modern, simple and elegant. Yes, you might only have a choice between two colours and it won’t convey your own individuality, but an Apple product does attract a sense of community. Apple is considered pretty high end, modern and trendy. An iPad might not showcase your individuality, but it’ll still make a statement.
If it has a flaw though, it’s definitely in the price. It is one of, if not the most expensive tablet on the market right now. But even so, people still flock to buy it, favouring its simplicity, reliability and efficiency.







Samsung

Samsung has emerged as a pretty potent contender in the tablet market. Samsung has a lot more to offer in terms of variety, but its most recent masterpiece is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. This tablet runs Android OS and has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (299 PPI), placing it at the top of the market. Its 8MP camera will make capturing high quality photos and video easy, to be enjoyed on a 16:9 display that’s perfect for watching HD videos.
Android tablets like Samsung’s tend to be more developer friendly than user-friendly. This has obvious pros and cons. On the bright side, developers have a lot more freedom to program interesting and innovative apps that are one of the main reasons for the need of a tablet. On the other hand, technical issues inhibit Samsung tablets from running as smoothly as its Apple counterpart, and it is more prone to lag.






If you’re wondering why this has become such a contender, it’s because of its most unique feature: the S Pen stylus. Running on Wacom technology it allows for easy writing or drawing and amazing sensitivity. The other benefit is its price, which is a lot lower than the iPad without sacrificing too much in terms of specs, design and performance.




The verdict?


Ultimately, it’s up to the consumer to decide which would most benefit them. The iPad is reliable and trendy, fast, simple and beautifully designed. If you’re willing to spend some extra money for it, then it is money well spent as it’ll make for a great tablet. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something that’s almost or just as good as the iPad but aren’t willing to spend too much money, than a Samsung tablet won’t disappoint. Whichever one you decide on buying, both of these brands are top of the market and their tablets will help keep you organised and entertained.

Tips For Buying A Tablet

Tablets have been one of the best recent technological innovations. The portability and convenience of these great machines means that you get to enjoy a great combination of the benefits from a laptop and a smartphone.
When it used to be that you only had one option to go with when you for looking to buy a tablet, i.e. the iPad, there are now a lot more options available. Here are some tips to help you buy the right tablet to enjoy.








Why You Want A Tablet?

The first thing you need to think about when you are looking to buy a tablet is the reason why you are getting it. Depending on the things you want to do with the tablet you will want to focus on different aspects and thus can narrow down your search.
For instance, if you are looking to buy a tablet that completely replaces your home desktop computer you might want to go for a bigger screen size. In the long run it is much better to use a tablet with a near 10-inch display rather than the smaller options. Therefore a tablet like iPad 4 or Nexus 10 might be your pick.
Naturally if you just want a tablet on the go you should opt for a smaller screen to improve the portability. Something like a Nexus 7 or even the Amazon Kindle Fire HD are good options to consider.



The Operating System

The biggest difference in picking out the tablet comes when you are choosing the operating system. Naturally if you want to go with iOS you need to get an iPad for yourself. Android and Windows are the other two big operating systems on the market.
A good rule of thumb is that if you already use either, for instance with your smartphone, it might be the easiest to stick with what you already know. If not then you can freely choose the one you like the most.
There is a good guide into the pros and cons of iPads and Android tablets at Which.co.uk and it is a good idea to read this guide first.
If you are looking to get a tablet with clear focus on the apps then you should know that Apple still has the biggest app availability for larger tablet screens. Android is slowly catching up and Windows is still quite far behind when it comes to the availability of apps.



Price Range

Generally the Android operating system tablets come with the cheapest price tag. This doesn’t mean that they are any inferior so if you are looking for a good first-time tablet Android might be a good idea.

But investing into an Apple tablet isn’t a bad idea either, especially if you are already an Apple user. Windows tablets are still a little bit expensive, compared to Android at least, but again worth an investment if you are looking for a tablet for purely business use.

How to print from your tablet


Tablet printing means you no longer need to use a desktop or laptop to get hard copies of those all-important documents. Rather than using a local printer network you can now print directly via your tablet to any compatible wireless printer, whether in your nearby vicinity or to an external location via the cloud.  









Printing from your iPad


Printing from your iPad is easy, Airprint capability means all you need is an Airprint compatible, wireless enabled printer:

1. Select the print command access from the ‘Share’ button on your tablet.
2. In the ‘Printer Options’, press ‘Select Printer’.
3. Your iPad will search for wireless printers nearby; select your chosen printer.
4. To adjust the number of copies, return to ‘Printer Options’ use toggle the + or – keys in the ‘Copies’ field.
5. Press ‘Print’


This is the easiest way to print, but you limit yourself to printing directly to local printers, and cannot adjust settings other than total copy numbers.
Third-party apps provide greater flexibility, allowing you to print from a greater variety of sources and file formats, allowing you to adjust printer settings to suit your requirements.




Printing with other apps



Xerox PrintBack is a particularly effective free application that works with Android and Apple iOS tablets. PrintBack supports any print technology or manufacturer, can print all Microsoft Office and PDF file formats, and is ideal for business and personal use.
PrintBack has the advantage of allowing you to print documents via your mobile device to a default printer in another location. For example, you might be away from the office and want to print a set of hand-outs for your colleagues back at HQ.

Simply:
- register for a web-based email service or cloud solution, like Dropbox.com;
- install the free Printback print agent onto your computer.

Your tablet will send the print job to the cloud from your remote location, where it will then connect with your home/office computer and print from your associated printer.  Using PrintBack you can save documents or photos from your device to your computer’s ‘Downloads’ folder, or alternatively to your Dropbox account.



PrinterShare

PrinterShare will allow you to send print jobs to your chosen local network device, without the requirement of going to the cloud first. The app can also allow you to access your GMail, Calendar, Contact and Documents, allowing it to print to local or remote cloud printers.
Other apps like PrintCentral Pro, Print n Share for Advanced Printing and Print Magic are also excellent solutions, each offering varying levels of flexibility, allowing you to print a variety of formats including Microsoft Office documents, PDF files, web pages and photos.




Printing from Android devices

While you can use a variety of apps for Android printing, the easiest way is via Google Cloud Print. This will allow you to make your home and work printers available to anyone you wish, printing from any location with an internet connection. Much like Xerox Printback, the print job will initially be sent to the cloud before the printer.

Download the Cloud Print app to your device, ensuring that you have Google Chrome installed tool. Sign into your Chrome account using the same log-in as your tablet, scroll down to the ‘advanced’ settings, then set up Cloud Print on your system.
Tablet printing is an easy and effective way to print on the move; download one of these useful apps now and get started.

Tablets Devices In Education

Tablet computing as we know it has taken on new functionality. The technology supplied via the tablet is the perfect learning aid. The touch screen interaction provides a clear educational advantage to children of all ages because it offers better engagement, enhanced knowledge retention, increased stimulation, and decreased “time-to-learn”. Tablet technology is a preferred change to fixed computers or laptops because the size and transportability enables students to include it in a myriad of learning activities.





What are tablet devices being used for in the classroom?


Tablets offer a portable learning experience reflected in their long battery life which outlasts traditional mobile computing solutions. As a result, it lends itself to a better use of technology within the classroom. Learning can now be enhanced in a multitude of manners including the ability to quickly access reference material in the middle of a lesson to enhance learning. Tablets can be used on field trips, during physical education lessons, or in workshops to instantly gather evidence and present research. By bringing these devices into the classroom students have access to video resources, reference books, internet research, and document preparation, document reviewing and audio resources. Tablets are now a versatile learning tool.
Touch tablets dispense with the burden of carrying around a handful of books. Now it seems 27% of middle school students and 35% of high school students are turning to digital textbooks. An additional 58% of college students actually prefer a digital format to traditional textbooks and tablets are the ideal window for said content.




What are the most popular apps?


In terms of reading apps for young children some of the most popular apps include:


- The Rescue of Ginger (for Android and iPad)
- LOL Libs (for Android)
- Mystic Maggie (for Android)
- Brain Pop (for Android and iPad)
- iWrite Words


For older students some of the best apps include:

Evernote
- Polaris Office
- DropBox
- Studious
- Skedule
- My Gradebook
- Write
- iAnnotate PDF
- Dictionary
- Lecture Notes
- OfficeSuite Pro 7


What technology are schools using?


The iPad was the first tablet device launched in 2012 using the iOS mobile operating system from Apple but has since been followed by tablets from such industry leaders as Acer, Samsung, and Toshiba each of which utilizes the mobile OS from Google, the Android.
Given the vast array of available technologies one must question which device is best suited for learning in schools.


Apple iPads

Apple’s iPad is already seeing large demand and has readily been adopted in schools due in part to its intuitive user interface and in larger part to the wide array of applications. The main advantages to the iPad tablet is that it is simple to use, offers high quality, great performance, long battery life, and a range of applications. The main limitation associated with the iPad is that the single source hardware does not support any existing connectivity resources, network resources, or content resources. The limited configurability means that it is costly to manage content for multiple devices and difficult at best to secure.


Android Tablets

Using the Google open source OS many leading manufacturers have released tablets which run the Android OS. The key advantages to this operating system are that with so many hardware manufacturers schools have varied price points. These devices support external USB devices as well as Adobe Flash content. The Android systems offer greater connectivity support and network resources which make it easier to manage and control. The main limitation to the Android tablets is that the content is more limited.


LearnPad 

The LearnPad is one of the most cost effective and flexible platforms available. It has a secure web browsing feature which can be limited to an approved white-list of websites. Teachers can create profiles for each student or each subject area which can then be accessed via the management portal. In addition this tablet is pre-installed with a range of eLearning applications which are aligned to the current curriculum. You can add eLearning activities through the online activity store.


Windows Tablet

These tablets have greater support for existing network infrastructure and content. They also support external devices. The main limitations associated with the Windows tablet is that they are most expensive than alternatives and they applications are not suited for other tablet forms.
Amazon has already taken advantage of the growth of tablets in education by selling Kindle devices at bulk discounts for schools. Trials for the Amazon Kindle have taken place in over 100 schools in Texas and Florida. Barnes and Noble’s Nook have been seen in Chicago Public Schools and a Colorado high school so far. Barnes and Noble is offering discounts for accessorizes and services that are tailored to education and the classroom. 



What are the advantages/disadvantages of using tablet technology on-campus?


By deploying a significant number of tablets, schools will need to create a system for managing, maintaining, and controlling them the same as they would for computers or laptops. One concern is monitoring and controlling access to applications and marketplaces that are not appropriate for children under a certain age. As of now tablets have the power to alter the way in which eLearning resources are accessed by students. Tablet deployments are expected to grow quickly and in large numbers due to their flexibility and versatility. Nonetheless it is imperative that the educational environment makes appropriate changes, ensuring that external ICT Support specialists are available to assist existing internal IT experts who do not have experience in deploying tablet hardware.

There is an increased demand for mobile connectivity. While schools may have wireless networks, there is now a need for wireless connectivity available to a greater number of devices across a wider geographic area. This means an existing wi-fi infrastructure needs to be increased in order to support the additional bandwidth. Many schools are located in buildings made from older construction materials with unusual layouts. There may be remote classrooms that do not have wireless connectivity. Combine this with a large campus which has distant buildings and you are faced with a costly and challenging adaptation.

The total cost of tablet ownership, management, and maintenance can be quite expensive especially if the devices are damaged or broken. Certain tablets are limited to proprietary content which means the overall cost will increase each time a new activity is loaded which the tablet does not currently support. The positive results of tablet implementation school-wide rest in the increased battery life which reduces overall costs.

While the costs may be high at the moment, there is a trend growing among the business world and some of the academic world: bring-your-own-tablet. Some educational establishments are providing a voucher system which enables students to purchase their own device and reduce the overall burden. Some potential measures to offset the costs of these tablets is to ask students to bring their own, and those who cannot afford them could be equipped from a smaller school-owned collection.

A case study completed by Learning Untethered stated that the cost of equipping an average 5th grade class with 7-inch Samsung tablets cost $200 per student and in spite of some technical issues, student engagement was overwhelmingly positive.

Tablets which are compatible with existing eLearning resources like localized online platforms or online testing and assessment activities take higher priority when comparing the available hardware. 




Conclusion.

Tablet technology will only continue to grow. As new applications become available and costs are lowered this technology can become widely implemented in schools. While deploying tablets in schools offers clear benefits, there are also issues which must be overcome first in order to unlock the true potential of the tablet. Once this is done we can truly begin to bridge the digital gap.

Choosing Between the Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and iPad Mini


At the End of Indecision, Your Next Tablet or Smartphone Sidekick Awaits

With all the smartphones and tablets available today, it’s difficult to choose which one is best for you. You look at one and it seems great. Then you look at another one and it seems better. After letting the different specifications stew in your head, you finally decide the first one you looked at is the best, even though you thought differently hours ago under the store’s buzzing fluorescent lights.

And then you wonder … Why am I leaving out that third device I looked at? Actually, now that I think of it, I liked that one too!

It’s a neverending cycle that goes on and on. To make a solid choice, you need counsel. When deciding between the hottest devices on the smartphone-table market – the Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and iPad Mini – there’s a definite choice that’s right for you. We’re going to help you find out which one it is, starting with the two hottest smartphones available.







Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone: Advanced Functionality and BIG Screen

Main Features:
- 13 Mega pixel cameraWith panoramic picture-taking abilities, quick auto-focus, Dual Shot, and a host of other options that ensure you always get the best picture, this smartphone camera is simply amazing. There’s also a convenient “face-time” camera on the front of the phone for self-portraits and applications like Skype.
- Jelly Bean Operating System: This operating system has many more capabilities than the iPhone 5. The Jelly Bean OS makes it easy for you to customize and personalize your phone to your specifications. Compared to the iPhone, you have complete control over which widgets and icons appear on the different screens of your phone. With this OS, you can have weather, sports updates and important news available to you without opening any apps at all. You can place what you want where you want, anywhere on the home and secondary screens.
Display: 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display
Reparability: Compared to the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy S4 has a stronger shell and source of protection against accidental drops and misplacements. Through drop tests, it’s been shown that the iPhone is stronger, but this causes no need for worry. There are affordable and reliable places for 
Samsung Galaxy S4 repair like XpressFix.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a smartphone with a larger screen that encourages customization, the Galaxy S4 is for you.







Apple iPhone 5 Smartphone: Easy to Use, Ultraportable and Attractive

Main Features:
- Slim Design: Compared to the iPhone 4s, the iPhone 5 is 18% thinner, 20% lighter and has 12% less volume. Basically, it’s more compact, but has new and improved features that outweigh those of the iPhone 4s. Holding true to Job’s minimalistic philosophy, you get more with less.
- iSight Camera: Like the Galaxy S4, the iPhone 5 has panoramic capabilities and a range of options for optimal picture and video capturing. However, what it has that the S4 doesn’t is a supreme “face-time” camera. It allows for crystal clear video chat sessions with friends and family and has the ability to capture 720p HD video.
Display: 4-inch Retina display
Reparability: Since the durability of the iPhone 5 is proven, the need for repair is lessened. But when it hits the ground hard, don’t worry. Quick, foolproof 
iPhone 5 repair is available through XpressFix.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for your first smartphone or like the iPhone 4s and want a small upgrade, go with the iPhone 5.







Apple iPad Mini Tablet: The Perfect Complement to Your Smartphone and Computer

Main Features:
- New Design: Compared to the standard iPad, the Mini is 23% thinner and 53% lighter. It has the same great features as the standard iPad, but sports a slimmer, sleeker package. This is one of the only tablets that can claim it’s literally pencil thin. Put a pencil next to it and test it for yourself!
- 300,000 Apps: There’s no denying that Apple is king of apps. Whenever a company comes out with a new smartphone or tablet application, Apple is first on the list. Since apps are the building blocks of modern devices, it’s important to have a wide variety at your fingertips. With the iPad Mini, you have access to the newest apps and conveniences they offer.

Display: 7.9-inch LED-backlit display
Reparability: Given its size, the iPad is a little more susceptible to harm than smartphones. To prevent screen cracks and other damage, invest in a strong case. And when your case isn’t enough, don’t worry – you won’t have to buy a new iPad. XpressFix offers affordable 
iPad Mini repair and quick turnaround times.
Bottom Line: If you already have a smartphone you love, get the iPad Mini. If you don’t, go with one of the smartphones mentioned above.
XpressFix specializes in cell phone repair Orlando services, tablet, and computer repair.
