Mobile 4G Overage in Australia
Recently, I went to a road trip from Brisbane to Coffs Harbour, that is about 5 hours driving distance from Brisbane. I found I got the 4G connections in major towns, such as Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour. Also, even the small towns, such as yumba, I got 3G connection and I got a stable 3G connection when I travelled on Pacific Highway. That is not bad, a few years ago, there were a lot of back holes of mobile connections. So, I used the Google Map as a primary navigation system and GPS as the second. Google Map is even better, the Map in my GPS is quite old around 2011. A lot of sections in Pacific Highway have changed, GPS cannot work very well in those sections. I has to use Google Map. Another advantage is Google Map has the live traffic data. It helped us to use a different route in Gold Coast for avoiding traffic.
Laptop to be home use
I got a mobile office, I need to work in different clients' office, that is the reason I need to use a laptop. However, when I work in my work, a laptop is not good enough for me and I cannot always work with a smaller screen. Buy a dock station is the best solution for our kind, I can connect an external disk via USB 3.0, which is the data storage for videos and photo and most of dock stations have video card inside, I can connect with monitors from the display ports from dock stations. Then I can have a better work equipment at home! Alternative, there is a cut-budget option, just using an external usb 3.0 hub, which is the solution I am using. I connected the mouse, keyboard and external disks from USB hub. The only down side is only a monitor can use, because I have to the HDMI from the laptop.
By the way, I wish in future, some one can built a dock station with a CPU and ram, so when I park my laptop to the dock station, I can have a better computer. Currently, Microsoft surface is using a similar approach. When the tablet part connected with keyboard, it can connect with the graphic card in the keyboard side, then it can performance better.
Samsung [email protected] Carindale
A two weeks ago, While I was waking in Westfield Carindale, I found there was a new Samsung Store in front of entrance of Myer at the lower level. There were some new toys from Samsung, such as Galaxy View(18.7″ Giant Tablet)、Galaxy s7、Galaxy TabPro S(A Tablet with keyboard, similar with Microsoft Surface). Also, it had Galaxy VR, yes I know that is a just "advanced" version of Google Cupboard.. I still wish to play it for long time, however, there were so many kids to line up for trying this. That was too bad, finally I gave up.
Edge Error:can't reach this page
After I updated my laptop to Windows 10 about a week, today, I suddenly found out the edge browser cannot connect to the internet. However, my Chrome browser in the same laptop is working fine. Also, I can reach the website by entering IP address in Edge Browser. I did a research on the internet. Some people mentioned that may be the dns server. I checked my laptop by using nslookup, It is working well. Finally, I found some people mentioned on the internet, that may be caused by DNS Client is not running. Then I went to the services setting, I found "DNS Client" is disabled. Then I enabled that and start it. Now, that is working now
Windows 10 Upgrade Errors: Fail to config
This afternoon, I rebuilt a pc with Windows 8. That is not much problems about that, however, after I finished the process of rebuilding and trying to upgrade for Windows 10. I downloaded Windows 10 Upgrade assistant. It helped me to download the windows 10 installation files. However, the 1st attempt is failed after all files are installed, but it said more one of components are failed to configure. And it restored to Windows 7. In 2nd attempt, I unplugged all USB external devices, such as printers and scanners. Then it upgraded successfully. If you faced the similar errors, maybe you can try this method!
