Intel has released its Remote Keyboard app to let you control any Windows 8.1 PC with your Android device such as a smartphone or tablet. As its name suggests, Intel Remote Keyboard works as a remote controller on Android device to enable wireless controlling of Windows 8.1 running PCs. Intel Remote Keyboard app provides a virtual keyboard in portrait and landscape modes and additionally features a trackpad that comes with some gesture controls such as one-finger tap, two-finger tap and finger slide. You first need to download the app for Android as well as the companion software for PC to start using Intel Remote Keyboard app.
Considering its features, the new Intel app seems to be a decent alternative to some of the third-party Windows remote apps including the one that we mentioned a couple of years ago. Moreover, the chip maker is additionally in development to release its iOS counterpart that will be available in the coming future to provide the same remote controlling functionality on Windows 8.1 through iOS devices.
However, if your phone is completely touchscreen and lacks a physical keyboard, you will see that you cannot bring up the keyboard to type into these apps as and when required.
Wifi keyboard allows you to type into your android phone at any place right from your computer.
Thanks a lot, this works very well on my Galaxy S, and when I need to do some serious typing it makes it so much easier. Just in case this is confusing some people; the ip address listed in this article is very likely NOT the same ip you will use. Can someone explain with more detail what is needed to do this when having the phone plugged into a computer via USB. While there isn't a ton of competition in the Android TV device space, NVIDIA has a clear leader in its Shield Android TV box. The Shield Android TV meets nearly every requirement when it comes to an all-in-one set top box for your entertainment center. Android TV has received a rather tepid response from the public, much like Google TV before it, and unfortunately for Google that hasn't really changed in the year since the television platform was announced. Enter NVIDIA, which in the past couple of years has started to carve out a bit of a foothold in the Android space as an option for those who want high performance, gaming prowess and solid hardware. Nobody is going to think of NVIDIA when it comes to the top-selling Android device manufacturers in the world, but after its initial forays into own-branded hardware with the Shield Portable and Tegra Note 7, the company has really done some nice work with the Shield Tablet and now Shield Android TV.
There's a very clear design language carry-over from the Shield Tablet to the Shield Android TV, with a mixture of plastics and metals, various textures, and of course a very strong color scheme of black with a pop of luminous green coming from LEDs on the side of the box. The power button isn't easy to find at first glance, as it's actually a capacitive touch zone right at the peak of the LED array, marked with a subtle NVIDIA logo. Right out of the box your Shield Android TV will be sitting horizontally in your entertainment center, and while there aren't any rubberized feet on the console its considerable weight (654g) means it won't be sliding around as you plug in various cables to the back of it. The Shield Android TV certainly looks nice propped up vertically for all to see, but the stand is probably at the bottom of the list when it comes to required accessories. I found myself just turning the LED brightness down a notch to "medium," as it's not too bright and I think it just looks darn cool sitting there.
While some may not be immediately drawn to the angular design, sharp edges and bright lights, the fact that it can quickly been toned down and settled in a cabinet means you don't need to be in love with the physical design of the Shield Android TV.
NVIDIA knows how to pick out all of the specs and features its customers want, and the Shield Android TV really reads as a checklist of pain points that people have with other set top boxes. Beyond the broad strokes, there are a few finer points that really set the Shield Android TV apart from the competition. A set top box with tons of power is great, but it's nothing without accessories and peripherals that let you interact with it. The Shield Wireless Controller included here has the same buttons and joysticks, and while it's a bit on the large side it really is one of my favorite controllers. My one complaint from the original Shield Wireless Controller remains here though, and it's the mixed use of capacitive and physical buttons. While it isn't included in the box, NVIDIA also has a new Shield Remote that's made specifically for this set top box. It connects over Bluetooth rather than Wifi Direct to keep battery life long (up to four weeks of basic use), and just like the controller can stream audio directly to the remote for your own headphones.
The beautiful part about the Shield Android TV is that you aren't limited to just the $59 controller (of which you can connect up to four at a time) and $49 remote — you can pair any Bluetooth device or connect any USB peripheral of your choosing.
Though it's been a full year since Android TV was launched, the software and interface hasn't changed much since we first reviewed the Nexus Player.
The Shield Android TV still has a "recommendations" list up at the top of the screen that shows movies, games, TV shows, apps and music for you based on your usage, and below that you'll see a lineup of installed games and all of your installed apps, sorted by how frequently you use them.
Android TV is easy to understand, simple to navigate and still offers lots of minuscule settings and tweaks if you really want them. The processor and memory on tap in the Shield Android TV is several times more than what you need to navigate the simple Android TV interface and apps, but that's just fine with me. The fact that this just acts like any other Android TV device is great, but that also means this box has inherited many of the platform's issues as well. For the content you can get your hands on, the Shield Android TV is set up to manage anything you can throw at it. The app is available for free download on Google Play Store and requires a companion software that works as a host app on the PC. The app is especially designed for Intel NUC and Compute Stick, but it can be used on any PC that runs on a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8.1 operating system. Once installed, the Android app shows a barcode reader that reads the code from the PC host to make pairing between the two devices. Now, turn on the Wifi on your phone and connect the Wifi to the same network to which you can connect your PC.
Now you can type in anything into the text box that appears and it will appear on your phone as text input at the same time. But it is a necessity in case your phone does not have a physical keyboard and you need to run an emulator like aDosBox or Nesoid. You get 4K video support, surround sound pass-through, HDMI-CEC control, an infrared port, and support for all of the local and streaming games NVIDIA has to offer.
Part of the issue is a lack of entertainment, game and app options that are designed with the living room in mind, while some folks have been happy to stick with their $35 Chromecast instead of buying a full-on set top box. At GDC 2015 the company came completely out of left field and announced the Shield Android TV box, another member of its Shield lineup, to step right over the likes of the Nexus Player, Razer Forge TV and low-powered Smart TVs. The new chip, when paired up with lots of supporting components, has enabled NVIDIA to do quite a lot, including 4K video output and intense gaming, completely leapfrogging the competition.
The box itself, as well as the peripherals, are running the latest available firmware versions from NVIDIA. Funnily enough the Shield Android TV takes up nearly the exact same footprint on a table (when laying horizontally) as the Shield Tablet, though it's about twice as thick at the back. The button is easy to accidentally hit if you're holding the box to manipulate cords in the back, but it's a neat premium touch (pun intended) that puts it in line with the other capacitive touch controls on the Shield Wireless Controller and Shield Remote (more on those later). NVIDIA is hoping you'll want to more prominently display the box with an optional $29 Shield Android TV Stand (that you'll see in various pictures in this review), which holds it upright and keeps it very stable with a nano-suction material on the bottom. The Shield Android TV will likely slot into most entertainment centers more comfortably horizontally instead, and you'll retain full functionality if you do so. I actually kept the Shield Android TV in its vertical stand as well, since I have extra room on the side of my TV stand and it suited the style well.
Unlike most boxes that ship with a basic remote control and then ask you to pony up for a controller, the Shield Android TV does it in reverse. I primarily play with an Xbox controller for my games but have no issues switching to this one. You simply tap the navigation and voice control buttons to activate them, but the volume keys at the bottom are physical switches just like the rest of the controller. It costs a pretty hefty $49 (getting right up there with a $59 controller), but is made considerably well. There's a built-in microphone for voice searches, and it recharges over an included Micro USB cable. That means you can easily connect a USB webcam, external hard drive, Bluetooth headphones, wired keyboard, mouse, flight joystick or anything else you'd normally connect to a computer. One of the great parts about Android TV is that it's relatively similar between devices — you have cards representing different content and apps arranged into groups, and it's all easy to see and navigate with just a few presses of a button on your remote or controller.


Voice search is really the best way to interact with the device and can tap into all of your installed apps, but you can of course do keyboard input via the Android TV Remote app on your phone or tablet, or send content directly to the big screen via Google Cast. Chances are if you're looking to pick up a new TV this year it's going to be 4K, and whether you've made the purchase yet or not you'll like to know the Shield Android TV is ready to go. He owns an HTC Legend as his first Android device and at Androidedge, he will explore the endless possibilities of the Android OS. The box has far more power than you'll need now, keeping you poised for future software and games, and with a variety of ports there are tons of possibilities when it comes to extending your experience. But for those who were interested in Android TV, having the Nexus Player as your primary hardware option has been an issue. But of course that also means it's one of the most expensive boxes of this type out there, starting at $199 before optional accessories.
The much more powerful internals require a dedicated fan that pulls in from the front and exhausts out the rear, next to the nice array of ports that also require additional thickness. You can also turn off the external green LEDs in the settings for completely stealth operation if you wish.
The box's slim profile when viewed front-on keeps it from standing out too much when you're just trying to focus on a movie or game.
There's a gigabit ethernet jack if you happen to have wired internet behind your TV, and on the front you'll see an infrared port that supports control from universal remotes — there's even a pre-made setup for the Logitech Harmony series.
It confuses your hands when you're just trying to play a game and you're switching between touch and physical presses, and it makes it very easy to accidentally tap "home" or the voice search key in the middle of a game. The remote is a smooth brushed metal with black plastic accents, and is super comfortable to hold and manipulate.
It's still a pretty big ask at $49 for "just" a remote, but if you want something to hand to your kids or a less-gaming-focused spouse, you'll be better off giving them a Shield Remote than a Shield Wireless Controller. And of course if you happen to have and older Shield Wireless Controller already, it'll pair up to the new Shield just fine.
Where you really get into tapping the performance of this device is in gaming, which I'll get to soon.
A new app from Google called "Live Channels" is now available on Android TV as a built-in aggregator and guide for live TV content, but it requires you to have an IP TV tuner or HD antenna setup to actually use it — it's clunky, and just isn't going to replace a cable subscription for many people. Images,snapshots,and pics often capture a sentiment,a mood,a feeling,or even an idea of a person who's at the center of attention.
You can install older versions of Windows using the aDosBox app and also play old DOS based games like Prince of Persia. You'll have to spend a little more than most set top boxes for the Shield Android TV, but you're getting something worth the money and more if you choose to.
And if you don't want to plug anything in, you can always get the $299 "Pro" model with a 500GB hybrid drive inside. The controller connects over Wifi direct to your console for super low latency, and it can also stream audio from the console directly to your controller and out of the headphone jack when you want to keep quiet. There are voice search, back and home keys, as well as a D-pad with an interesting capacitive touch selector button. Perhaps NVIDIA would've been wise to offer your choice of either a controller or remote with purchase. The box is HDCP 2.2 compliant for all of these features, and the included HDMI cable is also ready for the higher resolution.
Throughout the years,pictures has become one of the most popular ways to capture memorable moments. Bring up the writing area and long press into it to get the input selection option as shown.
The volume control is also capacitive touch — you just swipe up or down along the middle of the remote to adjust volume. And certainly,for a tantamount of consumer and shoppers you cant put a price tag on family and holiday pics. Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion.
Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics. From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers. Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera. Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera.
The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics. Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod.
Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod.
Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA  been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home. Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency. AA  few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA  wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception. As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget. In doing so, I foundA  the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+. Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA  the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen.
Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA  with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet). A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains.
After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget. Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment. Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year.
Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget. Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover.
As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover. Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment. With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September. Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile. To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident. Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month. For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents.


Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet.
Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work.
Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets.
So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment.
Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases.
Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning. Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory.
From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment. Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it.
Unlike sooo manyA  items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt.
A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item. In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA  actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back. It goes without saying ,I readA  the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA  in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection. Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA  while away from my place of residency. Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile. Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home.
Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily.
Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle. Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag.
Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote. A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff. Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags. However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once. In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping. Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily. From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit. In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget.
For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop. As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget.
Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping. Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card.
And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie). A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card.
Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute. Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function. Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun.
As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip. Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores. Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time. Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores.
Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before. On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress.
Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day.
What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients? Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper .
