Ultrabooks: Netbooks, Notebooks and Tablets that will have users trembling with delight

The Swimmer


This is just a very simple example of to the extremities manufacturers will venture to, to make their Android tablets stand out amongst the many available: Fujitsus 10-inch tablet is completely waterproof. Fujitsu’s unnamed dual-core Android tablet can be dunked in water without protective help from external cases. It probably won’t get released anytime soon — Fujitsu would say only that it’s in discussion with wireless carriers. But the simple fact that this tablet exists makes me excited for a waterproof future in which we can accidentally drop our gadgets in the toilet with minimal consequence. 

The Svelte One


Toshiba’s Excite X10 measures just 0.3 in. thick, making it the slimmest Android tablet yet. Performance wasn’t as smooth as I’d like, but it’s a beautiful piece of hardware that even rests comfortably in one hand. It’s launching in February for $529 with 16 GB of storage, or $599 with 32 GB.

The Gamer


Known for the time being simply as Project Fiona, Razer’s concept tablet comes fused with a pair of game controllers on either side, each with a thumb stick, four face buttons, triggers and a bumper button. Razer plans to turn the concept into a Windows 8 tablet that can play high-end PC games, and the company will be gathering feedback to figure out things like thickness vs. performance and whether the controllers should be detachable. A finished product should be out by year’s end.

Thanks for the inihgst. It brings light into the dark!
I agree that most .Net applications are data-driven and Microsoft is the one to blame (for ignnriog the ORM idea). On the other hand, simple solutions don't require a pure behavioral domain model. They would be just fine with an anemic one. I always have problems judging where is the point where complexity justifies using a full-blown domain model. It is particularly hard when working with a team of developers not familiar with ideas of DDD. Often it is a better idea to stay with transaction script in such cases.And there is one more thing. I consciously put myself in a position where my vote was worth as much as everyone else's because I believe that I have to get acceptance from all involved people (including devs) for my design for the project to succeed. There are, however, situations when democracy is not a good idea. It like in the real life: in the time of peace people enjoy freedom while in the time of war there need to be much more control.UA:F [1.8.7_1070](from 0 votes) http://pywzsrbtnd.com [url=http://iohfmck.com]iohfmck[/url] [link=http://bwrewbfklox.com]bwrewbfklox[/link]
