While there is a debate in the world of technical devices as to whether all-in-one devices are better than those devoted to one main task, that topic is probably going to just naturally be put to rest in the next few years. Right now, there are plenty of single-use devices left and a wide variety of all-in-one devices available. But as older generations get used to newer technology and younger generations grow up extremely tech-savvy, single task electronics will probably slowly fade away.

Even those who are considerably tech-challenged or resistant are unconsciously getting more comfortable with finding their way around more complicated devices. For example, senior citizens often wish for the “good old days” without cell phones and digital cameras, etc. But once they get used to the convenience of carrying a phone around with them, they warm-up to the “new fangled” technology and insist on having one. Then they learn how to take pictures with that same phone and the appreciation of the possibility grows on them.

Move that along to those comfortable with the technology offered in all-in-one devices. Once we get used to being able to do so many different things with cell phones, or tablets or other devices capable of many functions, it is torturous to return to the “old way” of having multiple single-use devices.

Do you think all-in-one technology is here a passing fancy or here to stay? Read the following article and develop your own opinion on the matter… http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203804204577016242173280680.html?mod=e2tw&utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=Buffer&utm_content=buffera6294.

Well, according to this article, the dying Windows 8 just might manage to survive only if Microsoft can take one very courageous step. For many in the tech world and especially fans of Microsoft, Windows 8 has been sorely disappointing at best and extremely annoying at worst. Microsoft seems to have struck a deep nerve of distaste when the removed the very familiar Start menu and button. Such a move has frustrated quite a few loyal Microsoft consumers. Even many of those who are quite comfortable with learning new technology are finding the Windows 8 changes quite irritating and difficult to navigate.

Microsoft will be releasing an update labeled as “Blue” that is supposed to reverse the most unpopular changes to the Windows experience that happened with the new Windows 8. But that is not drastic enough to truly salvage Windows 8 – at least according to this article. No…what Microsoft really needs to do is a complete separation between the desktop Windows 8 version and the tablet version of Windows 8. There are many reasons why this could save the inadequate new product, but is surely would be a huge under-taking and more than a little risky. Would it be worth it?

See how you would answer that question after reading the article at http://www.zdnet.com/the-one-big-fix-that-could-save-windows-8-7000015339/.

More than a few people criticize Apple’s iPad as being something fluffy and only good for pursuing fun and entertainment. But quite often that judgment comes from those who do not own an iPad or who are not very knowledgeable about the one they might own. In truth, that opinion is directed at most if not all tablet devices as they often appear to be just a great tool for social media and as a news source, etc. However, with Apple’s tablet, the iPad, all you have to do is look into the apps that are available for use with it and you will quickly discover just how many apps there are for work-related purposes.

Apple clearly knows what they are doing when it comes to making useful devices, and they have a host of office apps and other work-assisting apps available to use with the iPad that make them just as productive for working purposes as they are for entertainment purposes. Granted, in some ways tablets just are not capable of being as efficient for work-related tasks such as creating large spreadsheets and entering a lot of various kinds of data. Anything that requires extensive use of a keyboard are not served well by the virtual keyboards that are utilized with tablets either…at least for now. Unfortunately Apple doesn’t have anything significantly comparable to Microsoft’s Office Suite – but you can bet they are definitely working on that lacking area of software and apps.

For more information on how truly useful the Apple iPad and other tablets can be for business purposes, follow the link to the article that explains some very useful apps that can be found for work-related tasks. http://allthingsd.com/20130514/apps-raise-the-ipads-aptitude-for-real-work/?mod=fb&utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=Buffer&utm_content=buffer3d735.
