Should You Integrate Tablets into your Office?


Could your office benefit from tablets?

Well, that depends on what you want to get out of them. Tablets can unlock an amazing world of connectivity and mobility, but do you need it? Another question to answer is which tablet you think is going to work for your purposes. Today we’re talking about the possibilities a tablet can bring in your office. Are you ready to learn more? Ok, let’s do it! [Read more…]

In The Future Will Tablets Be As Powerful As Computers?

Currently, the Intel Ivy Bridge processors used in PCs and Macs require a lot more power and run a lot hotter than the processors used in tablets. Because of this, they need a lot more cooling infrastructure to go along with them. They also require bigger batteries to be competitive in battery life.

As you can imagine, the current Ivy Bridge is not suitable for use in tablets.

But what if Intel found a way to cut the power demands of its processors? What if your tablet could use the same processor as your desktop? Sound crazy? Well, the future of tablet processors is looking pretty bright. According to a CNET report, Intel is planning to cut the power demands of its current line of processors. So what does this mean for the future of tablets?

Before Intel’s announcement, tablet manufacturers had three general chip options:

  1. Intel Core (or AMD) Processor
  2. Intel Atom Processor
  3. ARM-based Processor

With decreased power demand, the newest version of Ivy Bridge is more suitable for use in tablets. And Intel’s next generation of processors, code named “Haswell,” which is rumored to be scheduled for release in mid-2013, could cut power demands even further.

If Intel truly can reduce power consumption, that changes everything. This could lead to new tablets with better battery life, less heat, and the ability to run the full version of Windows 8 (along with all the legacy apps). Newer tablets would basically have the functionality as PCs.

Now wouldn’t that change the face of the computer industry?

“If it comes out that way and works that way, that could be a game-changer,” said Workings Nets’ own David Spigelman. “But don’t count on it happening in the next few months. I’m betting it’ll be AT LEAST Q3 before anything like that could become available – possibly 2014.”

Windows 8 is set to be released next Week. What is the Public saying?

The release of Windows 8 is right around the corner. But why does no one seem excited? According to Microsoft, Windows 8 is “Windows reimagined and reinvented from a solid core of Windows 7 speed and reliability.” But what does the public think?

Unfortunately for Microsoft, public opinion has not been in favor of Windows 8. In fact, the closer Microsoft gets to unveiling its newest operating system and the more the public learns about Windows 8, the less likely they are to implement it.

Windows 8 Reviews


  1. “We really don’t think Windows 8 will get significant traction as a PC OS in a corporate environment,” said Gartner analyst Steve Kleynhans. “Why? Because Windows 8 is a “plumbing” upgrade. This is an upgrade that drastically changes the technology without adding significant improvements.”
  2. According to ZDNet.com, even hard-core Windows 8 fans prefer Windows 7 by a two to one margin.
  3. “An SMB is unlikely to decide ‘Windows 7 is no longer good enough, I must have Windows 8!’,” said Analysys Mason analyst Patrick Rusby. “Windows 7 is proven and popular.”
  4. “[Windows 8] really seems to be designed for tablets and phones,” said Working Nets own David Spigelman. “While you can install and run it on a desktop or notebook, it’s really not designed for that.”
