The briefcase story: part 5: men in sky mask

Mr. Job used his wireless device in hand and informed his staff to enquire about anyone named ‘Rash’. With in next 2 hours it became evident that there was someone named Rash, a female trainee student of Dr. Rasley. Rasley used to visit Rash at her home frequently and he called on there two days before his assassination too. That day Rasley worked till late night on Rash’s computer. Although it proved the origin computer of those printouts but police couldn’t get much meaningful information from Rash to swipe away the cloud of puzzle condensed around the death of Dr. Rasley.

Time seemed to roll on too fast that day and it was evening, when I boarded the aircraft to be back home. Mr. Job came to see of me and thanked me for my cooperation. Although the mystery of Rasley’s death remained unsolved, I was feeling quite light because I had handed over the briefcase to Mr. Job for his investigations and got rid of the gift from a murdered victim. Although the seats in economy class of flights are not that reclinable how much it should be, I attempted to adapt with it and tried to relax.

After using Chromebook it feels like rest of the leading pc selling companies are doing a scam!

Chromebook Photo: Alex Washburn / WiredI was a traditional windows user who finally shifted to chromebook, in search for some relief from some of its negative usage experiences like slowness in all respects, poor battery running hours and cost. Although in recent times a wide range of prices of windows pcs are seen but none of them felt satisfactory to me due to its overall protracted working time and less hours of battery provided energy. So I was almost determined not to let the another windows pc to enter my house again and was exploring the option for buying a mac.

I have seen mac and was quite overwhelmed with its sleek look and long battery life. We have almost 6 pcs at home all running on windows with no gross satisfaction. If all these money could have been saved probably we could have bought 2 mac laptops. So this time I was quite cautious about grabbing my next laptop. However, mac’s price always makes me feel to sob.

So thought of giving a try to chromebook. After reading its features and seeing its cheap price I thought to bet my pc buying luck for chromebooks too. Obviously I checked various features of google like docs, sheets etc and also had the long battery life back in my head. So finally I invested about 180 dollars and tried my pc luck with chromebooks.

After about almost a year of its use, I feel rest of the pcs that are sold is doing scam. If google can provide in such low price a superfast pc with excellent battery life, why others can’t do so. Chromebooks don’t need antivirus, google takes care of everything. What more a customer can want for. Its light weight and super fast nature with long battery hours have made it an ideal pc for me.  Hope chromebooks will inspire the pc world for a revolution low price, long battery life and superfast pcs.

Demerits of touch screen laptops

Touch screen laptop

Now a days lot of companies are launching screen touch function enabled laptops. These laptops  truly look nice and seems to be user friendly but I found few negative points, which I am sharing below-
  1. First, is cost. At the current time such touch screen laptops are expensive.
  2. Next,  in the list is screen marks. Sweat from our fingers can keep ugly looking marks on the screen, similar to finger sweep marks on tablets.
  3. According to some users, it consumes more battery than normal LAPTOPs. Therefore, your laptop’s battery life also effected inadvertently. This may also make your laptop a bad choice at places where there is no easy way to recharge.
  4. While cleaning the sweat spots of your finger you may need to add excessive pressure and might risk your laptop’s screen from getting scratch marks. Scratch marks shouldn’t be a problem if you are comfortable, using ugly scratchy laptop screens.

So what are the solutions:

  1. The laptop producing companies need to think of decreasing the price of their laptops.
  2. They might provide a screen cover/guard (a transparent plastic sheet sort of stuff) which can protect the screen from direct trauma by the users while swiping fingers on the screen or cleaning.
  3. Finally, a laptop with compromised battery life is probably the worst laptop. So some sort of tech upgrade is required, so that the touch screen laptop’s can be used for longer hours.

Hope this experiences prove useful.
