Samsung Galaxy Tab vs iPad Differences

samsung galaxy tab

So which to buy, the 7″ Galaxy Tab running Android, or the 10″ iPad, here is a quick guide to the differences:-samsung galaxy tab

Size, Weight and Display:

iPad 242x189x13.4mm and 680g – Screen 10″ and 768*1024

Galaxy Tab 190x120x11.9mm x 380g – Screen 7″ and 600*1024

Verdict:-

If you are traveliing, then the smaller and lighter (half the weight!) Smasung Galaxy Tab has to be the winner, if you need a larger screen, go for the iPad.

Connectivity:

Most people go for the standard WiFi only iPad, the 3g ones are just too expensive, here is a list of the extra connectivity things the Samsung does that the iPad doesn’t, makes phone calls, sends SMS and MMS, has Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity and HSDPA (7.2mbps internet via a SIM card) oh and finally a GPS receiver.

Verdict:-

No competiton here, the Samsung Galaxy has everything missing from the iPad (plus a camera)

Storage:-

The iPad has no expansion slots so you have to choose 16,32 or 64gb when you purchase one, the Galaxy tab allows you to add a Micro SD Card, so you can add cards of upto 32gb as you need, making the standard model have 48gb of space with a card.

Verdict:-

Again the iPad loosing out offering no options or flexibility.

Battery Life

iPad 10hours, Samsung 7hours.

Verdict:-

the iPad wins here, but that isnt surprising as it is twice the weight, a much beefier battery lurks under the cover.

Camera

Simple, the iPad doesnt have one, the Galaxy has 2 (front and rear for vidoe calling), and a flash.

Performance and Useability

In terms of processor the 2 machines are very similar with 1ghz processors, the Samsung has double the RAM at 512mb vs 256mb on the iPad.

Operating systems are similar in design and features, the App store for apple is way ahead with 250,000 apps although nothing like this number are for the iPad, most are for the iPhone. The android market place is currently running at around 70,000 apps and also crucially supports Flash Player 10.1, again lacking in the iPad.

Verdict:-

Difficult one here, think this one is a draw.

Overall Thoughts:

I have now owned both, and for me the Galaxy Tab is a clear winner, it does everything and more the iPad did, after owning an iPad for 3 months, i made a list of the things i needed in a new tablet, a built in sim card for data roaming, sms features, gps postioning, flash player support, memory card support, a bit smaller (i found the iPad a bit big to carry around on the train) and finally a camera. The Samsung Galaxy Tab does all that.

I ruled out the Galaxy tab as I could not find one for less that £450, having found one for £330, for me there really is only 1 machine to have!

iPad / iTunes Required file cannot be found when syncing

I recently came accross this error when trying to sync photos to my ipad.  After some research I found that the problem is to do with the ipod photo cache.

The following fixed the error;

PC
Close iTunes
Go to your My Pictures or Pictures folder
Delete the folder called “ipod photo cache”
Repen itunes and sync your iPad
The ipod photo cache should then rebuild.

MAC
Close iTunes
Go to your home folder in finder.
Open your pictures folder.
Right click on iphoto library and click on show package contents.
Find “ipod photo cache” file and delete it.
Close finder.
Reopen itunes and you sync iPad
The ipod photo cache should then rebuild.

Backup to a network share with Time Machine

time-machine-icon

Time machine is a new feature in Leopard that backs up your data but by default it only supports backing up to another physically attached hard drive.  There is however a work around to get it to backup to network shares;

  • Go into Applications / Utilities and open terminal
  • Type in defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1 and then press enter
  • Mount the network share (cmd + k)
  • Go to System Preferences, open Time Machine and select change disk
  • Then select the share that you want to backup to and Time Machine should then backup to it

Find the Microsoft Outlook Temporary folder

We often get calls from customers saying that they have worked on an attachment in Outlook and saved it but are not able to find it again.  This is because Outlook saves attachments to a temporary folder on your computer which is hidden.

We also get calls saying that Outlook is running very slowly or that they are unable to open certain attachments within Outlook.  This is normally down to the fact that the Outlook temporary folder has a lot of files within in and needs clearing out.

To find the location of the Outlook Temporary folder you need to do the following;

Open the Windows registry using regedit.exe and then browse to the following location depending on the version of office you have;

Outlook 2000 HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office9.0 Outlook Security
Outlook 2002/XP HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office10.0 Outlook Security
Outlook 2003 HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office11.0 Outlook Security
Outlook 2007 HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office12.0 Outlook Security
Outlook 2010 HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office14.0 Outlook Security

Once there you need to open the value called OutlookSecureTempFolder to find the folder location.

The easiest way to browse to this folder is to simply copy this path and paste it into either into start and run (in Windows XP) or start and search (in Vista or Windows 7.)

Now that you can access this folder you can either get the attachments your need or delete the content to clear out the folder.

  • iPad Harbour Master Angry Birds Alternative Best Game

    harbour master

    harbour masterWhilst everyone is raving about the Angry Birds game on the iPad, the lesser known Harbour Master seems to have been left by the wayside.  This simple, intuitive game is highly addictive and a fanstatic way to de-stress after a hectic day.  The aim of the game is to dock ships that enter the harbour carrying cargo.  There is purple cargo that must unload at specified docks and orange cargo that is destined for different docks within the harbour.  At first this seems an easy, agreeable task but as more ships enter the fray, docking the vessels becomes more of an ordeal.  As the player becomes more accomplished, the boats move faster and more of them cruise on to the screen.  For those who feel in the mood for an even greater challenge, there is the option to speed them up even more by pressing an icon on the top, right-hand side of the screen! Even by mastering the dock which unloads cargo more quickly than the others, it is still imperative to re-route ships to avoid the deadly collision which will promply end the game.

    Whats The Difference Between iPad and iPad 2

    Size and Weight:

    the iPad 2 is around 2/3 rds of the thickness of the iPad, and 88 percent of its weight  You’ll notice the difference right away. This is a thinner, lighter device.

    Robert asks…

    Access denied on Windows 7 command prompt remote shutdown?

    Ok so i have two laptops. And i just got them for my birthday and im trying ti figure out all the cool little things i can do with them and im pretty intrigued by the command prompt and what it can do. One of the things im trying to figure out is the remote shutdown. So with one laptop i went to the command prompt and put in… shutdown /r /m computername.
    And instead of computername i put both the acutall written computers name and i tried the ip address. When i had finished and pressed enter it said access is denied .
    I dont know what this means and how do i get past it?
    nooonoo its not for malicious or bad intent. Its just to connect both my laptops to their full potential whether thats from remote shutdowns when its upstairs and im downstairs with the other or file sharing. I did what you said and had it run under administrator but it still said access denied. is there anything i have to do with the other computer or this one?

    Matt NJ answers:

    Most computer firewalls will block a remote shutdown because it can indeed be malicious! If you don’t have the firewalls set to accept such commands they simply will respond with “access denied” messages. Basically the other machine is telling you it will not do what you ask.

    Is Quicken software (money management) compatible with the iPad?

    Can the iPad run any programs that work on a mac?

    Matt NJ answers:

    No, the iPad can only run apps made for iPad (or iPhone/iPod Touch). So unless a Mac app was re-done as an iPad app, it won’t work.

    Quicken is not available for iPad, but here’s a list of some other finance apps that do work:

    Helen asks…

    Is an iPad worth buying?

    Hi 🙂
    I am a college student and am thinking about buying an iPad recently. However, I am not sure if it is a good idea. I already have a laptop (that works..technically) and can definitely survive without an iPad. But I like it a lot and think that it may be easier to carry around (I move around quite a bit) and store/retrieve information from. (Plus, it will help save the environment if I use it instead of paper 😛 (joking)).
    Another issue is that I am guessing that the apps will probably cost more than the device itself if I want it to efficiently replace my laptop (with the need to write essays, time management, etc.).
    I would truly appreciate your feedback (especially if you had bought the device,etc) and thank you for your time. 🙂

    Matt NJ answers:

    Its a giant ipod touch.

    It cant really be used like a regular laptop, they are different things, ready my 5 minute review here:-
