009 How to Choose a Good Mobile Tablet – ProductivityCast

If you are looking to purchase your first mobile tablet, or you’re in the market to buy a new one, you’re in luck! In this episode, Ray, Augusto and Francis tackle some of the important questions you should ask yourself about what kind of mobile tablet you should own.

As a quick overview, please take note of the following criteria you can use to make a decision:

  1. Operating System – Choose the operating system that matches your smartphone.
    • If you don’t have a smartphone, compare Android, iOS and Windows operating systems against one another by the features you’re most likely to use, not the marginal features.
  2. Choose the right tablet format factor for your productivity needs.
  3. App parity, or select based on the need of a specific app(s).
  4. Decide on a budget.
  5. Choose a few tablets based on operating system, form factor, app parity, and budget to test in your local electronics store.

0:00:26.490,0:00:32.070
morning how are you today I’m doing

0:00:28.980,0:00:34.079
really well and we are joined again with

0:00:32.070,0:00:36.120
our regular contributor Francis Wade how

0:00:34.079,0:00:37.290
are you doing Francis I’m fine it’s

0:00:36.120,0:00:40.469
great to be with you guys again

0:00:37.290,0:00:42.750
I am sitting in my office and looking at

0:00:40.469,0:00:44.700
the beautiful sunny sky and looking

0:00:42.750,0:00:47.520
forward to this conversation we are

0:00:44.700,0:00:50.460
going to be talking about choosing a

0:00:47.520,0:00:52.680
tablet computer and/or mobile tablet as

0:00:50.460,0:00:54.390
some people call it and I think this is

0:00:52.680,0:00:56.969
a really important topic for a lot of

0:00:54.390,0:01:00.120
people because of the fact that we we

0:00:56.969,0:01:03.899
use screens of different sizes today and

0:01:00.120,0:01:05.880
as we traverse between screens that’s

0:01:03.899,0:01:09.330
really important that the tool we use

0:01:05.880,0:01:11.220
the tool we choose to use is effective

0:01:09.330,0:01:12.689
for us and that comes with a lot of

0:01:11.220,0:01:15.210
different options and a lot of choices

0:01:12.689,0:01:16.770
and I think it’s really good that we

0:01:15.210,0:01:19.200
make that choice that first choice right

0:01:16.770,0:01:21.750
out the gate I want to talk about

0:01:19.200,0:01:25.439
operating system and form factor and

0:01:21.750,0:01:27.119
budget and at parity across ecosystems

0:01:25.439,0:01:29.520
we’re each gonna probably have a

0:01:27.119,0:01:30.600
different opinion on choosing some of

0:01:29.520,0:01:32.579
these pieces and I think that’ll be

0:01:30.600,0:01:34.439
really healthy for us so let’s get

0:01:32.579,0:01:37.310
started with choosing an operating

0:01:34.439,0:01:40.619
system I believe in an operating system

0:01:37.310,0:01:42.180
choices being sort of twofold right you

0:01:40.619,0:01:45.390
have the selection of the operating

0:01:42.180,0:01:47.640
system because it matches your smart

0:01:45.390,0:01:49.140
phone right it so it’s already your

0:01:47.640,0:01:51.540
smart phone operating system why

0:01:49.140,0:01:53.250
shouldn’t it be your tablet operating

0:01:51.540,0:01:55.439
system and then the other side is that

0:01:53.250,0:01:57.240
you’re not particularly wedded to your

0:01:55.439,0:01:59.549
smartphone or you don’t own a smartphone

0:01:57.240,0:02:02.219
and so therefore you should compare it

0:01:59.549,0:02:05.280
against the three major tablet operating

0:02:02.219,0:02:07.799
systems and make a choice based on those

0:02:05.280,0:02:11.310
that comparison that you that you meet

0:02:07.799,0:02:13.250
for me is starred a matter of something

0:02:11.310,0:02:17.300
I’d paid I

0:02:13.250,0:02:20.510
I was on and I think my tablet or my

0:02:17.300,0:02:23.780
original tablet when the first iPad came

0:02:20.510,0:02:27.980
out where tablet still was not something

0:02:23.780,0:02:31.400
that was mainstream I understood the

0:02:27.980,0:02:34.670
power that God doublet May had on my

0:02:31.400,0:02:39.260
work or what I was hoping he was going

0:02:34.670,0:02:41.690
to have on mark worthless and after I

0:02:39.260,0:02:47.000
moved there and have been so many years

0:02:41.690,0:02:52.070
in the iOS ecosystem there certain apps

0:02:47.000,0:02:54.770
that are still only available the iPad

0:02:52.070,0:02:59.090
that I use that make me hard and unmake

0:02:54.770,0:03:00.860
a challenge to for me to leave the iOS

0:02:59.090,0:03:03.860
mostly because then I need to find out

0:03:00.860,0:03:06.320
my replacement and I like them and enjoy

0:03:03.860,0:03:10.070
them and use them almost every day not

0:03:06.320,0:03:12.590
every day multiple times so sorry I’m in

0:03:10.070,0:03:15.050
a certain way of talking iOS there is a

0:03:12.590,0:03:19.340
couple of outside projects I’m doing

0:03:15.050,0:03:23.900
right now where the people is forcing me

0:03:19.340,0:03:27.530
to go to Google Docs and it’s been a

0:03:23.900,0:03:31.220
struggle because Google Docs on the iPad

0:03:27.530,0:03:33.620
it works 80% so you can write and all

0:03:31.220,0:03:37.459
that but you cannot see for example as

0:03:33.620,0:03:40.910
of today the changes that others do or

0:03:37.459,0:03:42.019
have done to that document but then or a

0:03:40.910,0:03:43.850
co-writing

0:03:42.019,0:03:46.489
stakes that is what we’re doing on that

0:03:43.850,0:03:50.030
case in that project it’s a problem

0:03:46.489,0:03:51.680
because I cannot go simply and dump text

0:03:50.030,0:03:55.239
in there and you know what happened and

0:03:51.680,0:03:59.150
what not so that has forced me to

0:03:55.239,0:04:02.570
consider the possibility of adding

0:03:59.150,0:04:04.720
another piece of gear to my arsenal but

0:04:02.570,0:04:07.130
I’m trying to avoid mostly because I

0:04:04.720,0:04:12.140
already carry more gear than what I

0:04:07.130,0:04:14.840
should and on and when then when you

0:04:12.140,0:04:17.780
look into that you discover that the

0:04:14.840,0:04:20.900
gear you know I need it it’s basically

0:04:17.780,0:04:24.590
forcing or going to lock me into a

0:04:20.900,0:04:26.480
Chromebook or Chrome tablets because of

0:04:24.590,0:04:29.870
that that said

0:04:26.480,0:04:31.790
my criteria for laptop or her tablets

0:04:29.870,0:04:35.120
used to be the same one as laughter the

0:04:31.790,0:04:37.310
larger the battery the better that is

0:04:35.120,0:04:40.940
one of the reasons I have used also the

0:04:37.310,0:04:43.610
iPad for so long because in it used to

0:04:40.940,0:04:46.340
last me a whole workday now the

0:04:43.610,0:04:49.130
processor has improved and more speed

0:04:46.340,0:04:50.960
has improved and I use it more it loves

0:04:49.130,0:04:54.890
me the whole workday but then I have no

0:04:50.960,0:04:57.080
use for night so sorry eventually end up

0:04:54.890,0:04:59.510
charging my iPad around the middle of

0:04:57.080,0:05:03.020
the day so that way I have used for the

0:04:59.510,0:05:05.870
night but I believe that the better the

0:05:03.020,0:05:08.990
larger the larger the capacity working

0:05:05.870,0:05:11.960
wise for the battery that is in my

0:05:08.990,0:05:16.400
opinion the most important feature that

0:05:11.960,0:05:18.770
a tablet and a laptop can have well for

0:05:16.400,0:05:21.530
me if you remember the last time we

0:05:18.770,0:05:24.140
talked about this I spoke about the way

0:05:21.530,0:05:26.990
that I use my ecosystem I used my laptop

0:05:24.140,0:05:30.590
for creation my tablet for consumption

0:05:26.990,0:05:32.720
and my phone for mobility no I can’t say

0:05:30.590,0:05:35.720
that I started out thinking that I

0:05:32.720,0:05:39.320
should do it this way it is it’s more of

0:05:35.720,0:05:41.960
an evolution and to be honest I only got

0:05:39.320,0:05:44.480
a tablet because I wanted to watch

0:05:41.960,0:05:46.280
movies on a veranda that’s that’s what

0:05:44.480,0:05:48.260
motivated me I said you know what it’s

0:05:46.280,0:05:50.930
too difficult to drag the laptop all the

0:05:48.260,0:05:53.690
way over there phone is is phone screen

0:05:50.930,0:05:55.370
is too small I finally said ok let me

0:05:53.690,0:05:57.530
get a tablet and see what what what I

0:05:55.370,0:05:59.470
can do with it and it was because I

0:05:57.530,0:06:04.430
wanted to use it for consumption and

0:05:59.470,0:06:06.770
that practice has sort of grown I so I

0:06:04.430,0:06:09.380
would read email in addition to watching

0:06:06.770,0:06:11.830
movies I would send the occasional email

0:06:09.380,0:06:14.030
usually I’m just dispensing of email

0:06:11.830,0:06:15.410
dispensing email getting rid of it or

0:06:14.030,0:06:18.650
you know deleting it and they’re reading

0:06:15.410,0:06:21.320
it quickly and scanning it I don’t use

0:06:18.650,0:06:23.030
the productivity apps on my tablet

0:06:21.320,0:06:26.180
because they are underpowered

0:06:23.030,0:06:27.620
and I like to jump between having

0:06:26.180,0:06:30.200
multiple you know I’d like to put in

0:06:27.620,0:06:32.450
pictures I like to do research at the

0:06:30.200,0:06:34.250
same time on a second screen so when I’m

0:06:32.450,0:06:36.950
at my laptop and I’m using a second

0:06:34.250,0:06:39.170
screen usually has a browser up so I can

0:06:36.950,0:06:40.080
jump back and forth between finding bits

0:06:39.170,0:06:43.080
of content and

0:06:40.080,0:06:45.750
creating content so it doesn’t it

0:06:43.080,0:06:48.810
doesn’t help me to create it’s really

0:06:45.750,0:06:50.909
just for leaning back and listening so

0:06:48.810,0:06:54.090
whether it’s an iOS or Windows or

0:06:50.909,0:06:56.280
Android doesn’t matter as much to me

0:06:54.090,0:06:58.259
matter of fact that what I’m using is is

0:06:56.280,0:07:00.840
the Amazon fire which is sort of

0:06:58.259,0:07:03.210
underpowered Android according to the

0:07:00.840,0:07:05.550
purists but it serves my needs perfectly

0:07:03.210,0:07:08.819
because I don’t travel with it very

0:07:05.550,0:07:10.770
often I don’t it doesn’t it goes with me

0:07:08.819,0:07:13.919
but it’s really a backup it really is

0:07:10.770,0:07:17.310
just a consumption device that fits a

0:07:13.919,0:07:19.169
particular niche to me so I think for me

0:07:17.310,0:07:22.020
it’s it’s you might call it the Minimum

0:07:19.169,0:07:27.030
Viable Product because I’m using the the

0:07:22.020,0:07:29.039
least amount of tablet power possible to

0:07:27.030,0:07:30.900
meet my needs so if I figured out my

0:07:29.039,0:07:34.020
needs are very limited in that area and

0:07:30.900,0:07:36.509
I’m using the and a very inexpensive

0:07:34.020,0:07:38.180
tablet just to fill the gap and it’s it

0:07:36.509,0:07:42.180
seems to be filling it perfectly so far

0:07:38.180,0:07:45.210
so it seems to me like the choice for

0:07:42.180,0:07:48.000
gusto yours was battery power obviously

0:07:45.210,0:07:50.190
since you were already using the Apple

0:07:48.000,0:07:53.190
ecosystem it made a lot of sense for you

0:07:50.190,0:07:56.009
to go with iPad for you Francis it seems

0:07:53.190,0:07:58.409
as though you know it’s it’s only

0:07:56.009,0:08:00.539
several functions that you use on the

0:07:58.409,0:08:02.310
tablet and therefore having something

0:08:00.539,0:08:04.020
like the Amazon fire makes a lot of

0:08:02.310,0:08:06.560
sense for you and I would in my sit in

0:08:04.020,0:08:09.960
my situation I chose and have been on

0:08:06.560,0:08:12.690
the Google flagship and Nexus tablets

0:08:09.960,0:08:14.490
for quite some time and only recently

0:08:12.690,0:08:17.490
stepped away from that to go to the

0:08:14.490,0:08:19.889
Samsung Galaxy Tab world I think that

0:08:17.490,0:08:22.500
you know for me again I have a lot more

0:08:19.889,0:08:26.610
technology gear than I probably should

0:08:22.500,0:08:28.830
and I think and it’s it’s it’s a it’s a

0:08:26.610,0:08:30.690
product of the industry right you know

0:08:28.830,0:08:32.969
being being a technology consultant I’m

0:08:30.690,0:08:35.640
doing a lot of work that requires me to

0:08:32.969,0:08:39.000
test software across many different

0:08:35.640,0:08:41.789
platforms and therefore I have the

0:08:39.000,0:08:44.039
devices to be able to do that but my

0:08:41.789,0:08:47.040
go-to right now as as we talked about

0:08:44.039,0:08:50.490
several episodes ago is my samsung

0:08:47.040,0:08:53.160
galaxy tab and it’s an 8 inch screen and

0:08:50.490,0:08:56.370
I chose that because

0:08:53.160,0:08:59.730
I chose it as an I chose Android because

0:08:56.370,0:09:02.100
of my use of of G suite in my business

0:08:59.730,0:09:04.589
so I used the Google Apps ecosystem in

0:09:02.100,0:09:06.600
my business and I use Google across

0:09:04.589,0:09:09.389
pretty much everything in my personal

0:09:06.600,0:09:11.970
life and I needed access to the most

0:09:09.389,0:09:14.220
seamless experience with regard to

0:09:11.970,0:09:15.930
Google and that meant Android it just

0:09:14.220,0:09:18.750
sort of went from there so the Google

0:09:15.930,0:09:21.120
Nexus platforms had had pure Android on

0:09:18.750,0:09:23.870
them and I really enjoyed that let’s

0:09:21.120,0:09:26.730
let’s talk about application parity and

0:09:23.870,0:09:28.259
the need to look at whether or not the

0:09:26.730,0:09:29.759
tablet of choice in this case the

0:09:28.259,0:09:32.519
operating system of choice for your

0:09:29.759,0:09:34.740
tablet has the applications that you

0:09:32.519,0:09:37.379
need now maybe four or five years ago

0:09:34.740,0:09:39.329
this was a much bigger deal than it is

0:09:37.379,0:09:42.360
today and you guys can agree or disagree

0:09:39.329,0:09:45.569
with me here but I feel like today most

0:09:42.360,0:09:48.029
of what you need is available on all of

0:09:45.569,0:09:52.079
the devices except for very few things

0:09:48.029,0:09:54.480
like if you really need iCloud what’s

0:09:52.079,0:09:57.750
within the I works in interface like

0:09:54.480,0:10:00.269
Apple Pages Numbers and so as a forth

0:09:57.750,0:10:02.430
you really will only be able to get that

0:10:00.269,0:10:04.319
on a mobile tablet on an iPad or

0:10:02.430,0:10:06.329
messages or those kinds of things that

0:10:04.319,0:10:08.939
are Apple specific products but

0:10:06.329,0:10:11.130
otherwise you pretty much can do most of

0:10:08.939,0:10:13.350
what you need to do on a mobile tablet

0:10:11.130,0:10:16.980
across any of the ecosystems right

0:10:13.350,0:10:19.380
Windows Android or iOS I agree I mean

0:10:16.980,0:10:21.300
before before I go into into this again

0:10:19.380,0:10:23.579
saying that I agree I may say you may

0:10:21.300,0:10:26.480
not write down that paragraph where to

0:10:23.579,0:10:29.730
justify how to carry that bunch of

0:10:26.480,0:10:31.740
technology with you because some of us

0:10:29.730,0:10:34.019
may need it to seem to say something

0:10:31.740,0:10:39.240
better than what we say what you said

0:10:34.019,0:10:42.120
sounds much better than what I yeah I

0:10:39.240,0:10:45.240
happen I happen to be in a meeting last

0:10:42.120,0:10:47.339
week and the Middle East are ways by

0:10:45.240,0:10:50.129
other and then we need a little bit of

0:10:47.339,0:10:52.980
screen so I open my back and pull a

0:10:50.129,0:10:55.350
second iPad and and we need in another

0:10:52.980,0:10:57.990
screen I pull another device and when we

0:10:55.350,0:11:01.800
end up the minute we have out of my back

0:10:57.990,0:11:04.769
five devices showing different things on

0:11:01.800,0:11:07.110
this medium on that table so I may need

0:11:04.769,0:11:10.500
that excuse that you have there

0:11:07.110,0:11:12.600
like I I always I always call myself I

0:11:10.500,0:11:15.720
call myself the MacGyver productivity

0:11:12.600,0:11:18.240
because I I go to meetings and you know

0:11:15.720,0:11:21.480
I have the I have the dongle for this

0:11:18.240,0:11:24.870
you know this adapter I have the the the

0:11:21.480,0:11:27.990
ethernet to a USB adapter and the other

0:11:24.870,0:11:30.390
pocket of my bag I have different HDMI

0:11:27.990,0:11:32.250
cables for this and that and you know

0:11:30.390,0:11:34.290
it’s just a it’s just a factor of just

0:11:32.250,0:11:35.910
coming to meetings and recognizing that

0:11:34.290,0:11:39.899
you’re going to interface with different

0:11:35.910,0:11:41.640
systems and you know legacy hardware and

0:11:39.899,0:11:43.320
some of the client sites that I go to

0:11:41.640,0:11:46.350
and so you just want to make sure that

0:11:43.320,0:11:47.730
you’re prepared for things ahead and so

0:11:46.350,0:11:49.380
you know you learn to cobble together

0:11:47.730,0:11:51.930
what you need in order to make the

0:11:49.380,0:11:54.690
technology work you choose to carry more

0:11:51.930,0:11:57.120
I think full-size Hardware pieces I

0:11:54.690,0:11:58.980
carry a lot of connectors and adapters

0:11:57.120,0:12:02.610
and all kinds of other fun stuff with me

0:11:58.980,0:12:05.940
I carried those two I can’t go to and I

0:12:02.610,0:12:08.070
wonder why my bag is so heavy but but

0:12:05.940,0:12:10.320
that said I think as you said you know

0:12:08.070,0:12:12.930
when all the food when I started into

0:12:10.320,0:12:14.850
the tablet world it was really you were

0:12:12.930,0:12:20.010
stuck with one or the other even at that

0:12:14.850,0:12:22.440
time Google dogs wasn’t powerful at all

0:12:20.010,0:12:26.730
so it wasn’t really an option as it is

0:12:22.440,0:12:28.920
today and Microsoft simply decide for

0:12:26.730,0:12:31.800
the longest time too that they were not

0:12:28.920,0:12:34.440
going to play on that space unless you

0:12:31.800,0:12:37.470
buy their devices that where their

0:12:34.440,0:12:39.420
devices I’m going to to self-censor

0:12:37.470,0:12:42.240
into my opinion of those devices you

0:12:39.420,0:12:44.880
were basically stuck if you wanted to go

0:12:42.240,0:12:47.250
to a tablet are the early days as we

0:12:44.880,0:12:49.560
said your options was you go for quick

0:12:47.250,0:12:52.050
office or one of those options that kind

0:12:49.560,0:12:55.140
or documents to go that is even what I

0:12:52.050,0:12:57.060
had one even before the tablet one when

0:12:55.140,0:12:59.070
I had my spam pile of documents to go

0:12:57.060,0:13:00.930
was a solution because you could open

0:12:59.070,0:13:02.339
work on Word documents and then email

0:13:00.930,0:13:05.250
them and nobody knew that you were

0:13:02.339,0:13:08.880
working on a tablet or in that case a

0:13:05.250,0:13:11.459
PDF and that possible there is still

0:13:08.880,0:13:13.260
some quirks between Google Docs and Word

0:13:11.459,0:13:16.260
and the other way around and even with

0:13:13.260,0:13:18.600
pages but for most cases regardless

0:13:16.260,0:13:21.450
which of the tree you use you will be

0:13:18.600,0:13:23.730
able to to work without anybody

0:13:21.450,0:13:25.860
knowing that you are working on a tablet

0:13:23.730,0:13:27.870
or that you are not working and that

0:13:25.860,0:13:30.660
you’re working remotely the reality is

0:13:27.870,0:13:33.300
the technology where it is right now

0:13:30.660,0:13:36.030
he will make almost no difference did

0:13:33.300,0:13:40.400
you pick an Android or you pick an iOS

0:13:36.030,0:13:43.410
as ask your platform there is specific

0:13:40.400,0:13:46.350
applications I use an application for

0:13:43.410,0:13:49.530
journal that I use multiple times a day

0:13:46.350,0:13:53.130
and I love it that is called car one day

0:13:49.530,0:13:55.620
or day one but it’s only iOS then and I

0:13:53.130,0:13:58.460
like it and I like it a lot and it’s not

0:13:55.620,0:14:01.710
available then the other thing is I use

0:13:58.460,0:14:05.280
OmniFocus that is also micro me or iOS

0:14:01.710,0:14:07.800
unlike an iOS only product so if I would

0:14:05.280,0:14:10.200
like to move I will need to start for

0:14:07.800,0:14:12.600
looking ok I need to change this for

0:14:10.200,0:14:16.950
what I’m going to change it and that’s

0:14:12.600,0:14:19.950
what keeps me uh make myself less

0:14:16.950,0:14:24.360
portable that’s it I carry an Android

0:14:19.950,0:14:26.760
device with me and there are

0:14:24.360,0:14:29.460
applications you know my calendar work

0:14:26.760,0:14:31.410
calendar live in Google so no problem

0:14:29.460,0:14:34.980
but my personal and family calendars

0:14:31.410,0:14:37.950
live in iOS on my cloud there is no

0:14:34.980,0:14:39.870
software that will connect to the iCloud

0:14:37.950,0:14:42.720
and then put it on your calendar

0:14:39.870,0:14:44.610
application on Android because it’s what

0:14:42.720,0:14:47.640
I have on the pocket that’s that’s a

0:14:44.610,0:14:50.430
work phone so I carried for work things

0:14:47.640,0:14:52.410
and at the beginning like a couple of

0:14:50.430,0:14:53.820
times before I’d look to solve the

0:14:52.410,0:14:56.430
problem that’s what happened to me I

0:14:53.820,0:14:58.890
opened the work calendars and because I

0:14:56.430,0:15:00.870
was not looking giving a real view of

0:14:58.890,0:15:02.580
what I was on my world I realized that

0:15:00.870,0:15:04.920
we can do it that time and then when I

0:15:02.580,0:15:07.500
went back to the actual calendar who has

0:15:04.920,0:15:10.590
everything I was like oh no I cannot do

0:15:07.500,0:15:12.510
that and now I just have the ability on

0:15:10.590,0:15:15.180
the Android phone if that’s what I have

0:15:12.510,0:15:18.180
with me to look every calendar that I

0:15:15.180,0:15:21.150
have so I can get the same full view

0:15:18.180,0:15:24.300
that I will get on any of my iOS devices

0:15:21.150,0:15:26.370
so what I’m the reason I bring an

0:15:24.300,0:15:29.250
example of the calendar is because

0:15:26.370,0:15:32.190
that’s what the reaction of most people

0:15:29.250,0:15:33.690
is oh well I have an Android or I start

0:15:32.190,0:15:34.520
with an Android where I start with an

0:15:33.690,0:15:37.670
iOS

0:15:34.520,0:15:41.300
or a Mac PC okay and now I’m it’s

0:15:37.670,0:15:43.460
talking here well if if you figured out

0:15:41.300,0:15:45.950
what are the parts that you you know

0:15:43.460,0:15:48.830
that doesn’t allow you to move you may

0:15:45.950,0:15:50.810
be able to replace one up or two there

0:15:48.830,0:15:54.350
are apps that I understand you’re not

0:15:50.810,0:15:57.650
going to be able to to replace but there

0:15:54.350,0:15:58.280
is many ways to make things work one way

0:15:57.650,0:15:59.960
or the other

0:15:58.280,0:16:01.460
as I said at the beginning of this

0:15:59.960,0:16:03.680
problem on a project where we’re using

0:16:01.460,0:16:05.600
Google Docs and it’s a core writing

0:16:03.680,0:16:08.090
project and it’s important that I check

0:16:05.600,0:16:12.200
what’s happening on the document before

0:16:08.090,0:16:14.480
I go into that okay and then well what

0:16:12.200,0:16:17.060
that has creative I needed to find a way

0:16:14.480,0:16:19.910
to do it from the iPad so I don’t want

0:16:17.060,0:16:24.920
to carry more technology in the back so

0:16:19.910,0:16:26.840
I discover or I decide to install Google

0:16:24.920,0:16:32.810
remote desktop that is a free solution

0:16:26.840,0:16:36.470
and then I can login into my computer at

0:16:32.810,0:16:39.320
home and then open the Google Docs check

0:16:36.470,0:16:41.660
Google Docs on a Mac that then allows me

0:16:39.320,0:16:43.400
to see the changes and as soon as I saw

0:16:41.660,0:16:46.100
the changes and under study where they

0:16:43.400,0:16:48.320
are then I can go back to iCloud on my

0:16:46.100,0:16:50.720
iPad and then add whatever I want to add

0:16:48.320,0:16:54.110
for Aires whatever I want to read it’s

0:16:50.720,0:16:56.300
not perfect no it’s not perfect pretty

0:16:54.110,0:16:59.990
bitch the carrying you know another

0:16:56.300,0:17:03.110
device without any doubt at least for me

0:16:59.990,0:17:05.810
my experience has been that the the apps

0:17:03.110,0:17:10.280
I use there’s no parity across the

0:17:05.810,0:17:14.030
different ecosystems and devices so the

0:17:10.280,0:17:16.610
choice of a particular particular apps

0:17:14.030,0:17:19.339
if if I prefer to use a particular app

0:17:16.610,0:17:21.920
on a particular device or in a system I

0:17:19.339,0:17:24.530
would give that up in favor of a

0:17:21.920,0:17:27.380
different different device if it’s gonna

0:17:24.530,0:17:29.510
simplify my overall system so III think

0:17:27.380,0:17:31.220
that simplicity for me simplicity and

0:17:29.510,0:17:33.290
trying to cut down the number of things

0:17:31.220,0:17:37.250
I have to carry and not having to worry

0:17:33.290,0:17:40.040
about moving documents between different

0:17:37.250,0:17:43.040
kinds of apps and compatibility I would

0:17:40.040,0:17:45.890
give up the app first and then in favor

0:17:43.040,0:17:48.140
of trying to keep things simple and keep

0:17:45.890,0:17:48.380
keep the number of devices in the number

0:17:48.140,0:17:50.690
of

0:17:48.380,0:17:53.330
as few as possible so for example I used

0:17:50.690,0:17:57.220
to keep my calendar on a calendar and

0:17:53.330,0:17:59.929
then it became complicated – or

0:17:57.220,0:18:02.780
impossible at some point to walk with my

0:17:59.929,0:18:04.850
calendar this is before outlook 365 I

0:18:02.780,0:18:06.890
couldn’t couldn’t carry my calendar with

0:18:04.850,0:18:09.590
me which turned out to be a huge problem

0:18:06.890,0:18:12.049
so I said you know what the writing is

0:18:09.590,0:18:13.179
on the wall so I stopped using it and I

0:18:12.049,0:18:18.140
switched over to Google Calendar

0:18:13.179,0:18:21.530
exclusively and for me once again it’s a

0:18:18.140,0:18:22.669
the choice of the app is less important

0:18:21.530,0:18:25.220
than the functionality and the

0:18:22.669,0:18:27.880
simplicity that’s sighs I kind of I get

0:18:25.220,0:18:33.049
I guess I am not a fan of anything

0:18:27.880,0:18:34.280
except my own workflow that makes a lot

0:18:33.049,0:18:36.470
of sense that makes a lot of sense I

0:18:34.280,0:18:39.950
just think about my history with apps

0:18:36.470,0:18:44.179
and hearing about new applications when

0:18:39.950,0:18:46.400
they would be only on iOS and they

0:18:44.179,0:18:49.340
wouldn’t go to Android until they were

0:18:46.400,0:18:51.590
you know fairly big enough you know that

0:18:49.340,0:18:54.320
they had grown enough and had a

0:18:51.590,0:18:56.510
supporting developer staff to be able to

0:18:54.320,0:18:58.700
do that on Android and that was back

0:18:56.510,0:19:01.490
when it was much more difficult to code

0:18:58.700,0:19:04.250
on both platforms as easily it is as it

0:19:01.490,0:19:06.590
is today I believe and I think that

0:19:04.250,0:19:08.900
today you now see a switch

0:19:06.590,0:19:11.000
you know since there are so many more

0:19:08.900,0:19:13.400
Android users on the planet than there

0:19:11.000,0:19:16.100
are iOS users and that’s not again it’s

0:19:13.400,0:19:19.880
not a it’s not an issue of one being

0:19:16.100,0:19:21.710
better than the other but the reality

0:19:19.880,0:19:23.900
factor of that I think a lot of

0:19:21.710,0:19:26.990
development now has skewed back toward

0:19:23.900,0:19:29.450
Android in terms of if you if you want

0:19:26.990,0:19:31.880
to see a lot of startups doing new cool

0:19:29.450,0:19:35.030
stuff those that are probably here in

0:19:31.880,0:19:37.610
the United States tend to focus on iOS

0:19:35.030,0:19:39.799
development first because we have you

0:19:37.610,0:19:42.590
know a large concentration of iOS you

0:19:39.799,0:19:45.650
know of iPhone owners but the rest of

0:19:42.590,0:19:47.870
the globe tends to focus on Android

0:19:45.650,0:19:49.789
application development because if you

0:19:47.870,0:19:51.799
look at China if you look at India if

0:19:49.789,0:19:53.809
you look at very large you know

0:19:51.799,0:19:55.580
population countries most of those

0:19:53.809,0:19:58.280
people you know the continent of Africa

0:19:55.580,0:20:00.049
each of those nations within Africa all

0:19:58.280,0:20:01.940
of those nation-states

0:20:00.049,0:20:05.659
and enlarged

0:20:01.940,0:20:08.029
countries their primary user is Android

0:20:05.659,0:20:11.029
you know it’s 80 percent maybe more than

0:20:08.029,0:20:14.120
that now of the phones on the planet so

0:20:11.029,0:20:15.980
with that in mind it’s it’s only natural

0:20:14.120,0:20:19.070
that they would you know go to that

0:20:15.980,0:20:20.929
platform first at least as a building an

0:20:19.070,0:20:24.440
MVP you know seeing the Minimum Viable

0:20:20.929,0:20:26.240
Product but I think again for me when

0:20:24.440,0:20:29.629
you know again I pay attention to a lot

0:20:26.240,0:20:31.490
of startup technology and because of the

0:20:29.629,0:20:33.769
work that I do and watching these tech

0:20:31.490,0:20:37.429
startups launch you know I find it to be

0:20:33.769,0:20:39.830
you know somewhat distasteful when it’s

0:20:37.429,0:20:41.600
only on one platform and I completely

0:20:39.830,0:20:44.059
understand resources are limited and

0:20:41.600,0:20:46.370
they want to build their MVP but it’s a

0:20:44.059,0:20:49.009
little bit distasteful to some community

0:20:46.370,0:20:50.929
when they aren’t able to actually access

0:20:49.009,0:20:54.139
that application and there are even some

0:20:50.929,0:20:56.000
really solid productivity out you know

0:20:54.139,0:20:58.519
tools out there today that still don’t

0:20:56.000,0:21:00.799
have parity on the other platform I’m

0:20:58.519,0:21:02.629
gonna pick on OmniFocus cuz I’m sure the

0:21:00.799,0:21:05.090
omni group is not going to be hurt by my

0:21:02.629,0:21:07.370
statement here but OmniFocus is still

0:21:05.090,0:21:10.519
Apple only they focus only on Apple

0:21:07.370,0:21:12.320
users and I believe that they say their

0:21:10.519,0:21:16.370
opinion there would be that they’re

0:21:12.320,0:21:18.080
focusing on the iOS and Mac OS platforms

0:21:16.370,0:21:20.450
because it allows them to be able to

0:21:18.080,0:21:23.629
create a very tight-knit product that

0:21:20.450,0:21:25.940
looks at the core of their user base and

0:21:23.629,0:21:27.529
I believe that they’re missing the boat

0:21:25.940,0:21:29.509
I believe that they’re not reading their

0:21:27.529,0:21:32.240
audience correctly you know there are

0:21:29.509,0:21:34.789
lots of people who are I wouldn’t say

0:21:32.240,0:21:37.370
stuff but they are obligated to use an

0:21:34.789,0:21:39.289
operating system outside of Apple apples

0:21:37.370,0:21:42.649
you know operating systems and they

0:21:39.289,0:21:44.960
would love to use OmniFocus 2 or Omni

0:21:42.649,0:21:47.149
grapple or Omni outliner or one of those

0:21:44.960,0:21:50.179
other products if they were able to do

0:21:47.149,0:21:52.940
so so I think that I think that for for

0:21:50.179,0:21:54.919
those listening who are developers right

0:21:52.940,0:21:57.769
really think long and hard about the

0:21:54.919,0:21:59.509
choice as to only developing on one

0:21:57.769,0:22:01.519
platform I completely understand if you

0:21:59.509,0:22:03.860
have to launch on one one platform but

0:22:01.519,0:22:06.230
certainly have a plan for being able to

0:22:03.860,0:22:07.700
launch on the others because you know

0:22:06.230,0:22:10.250
those other platforms that seem to have

0:22:07.700,0:22:13.039
a very small number of users well I’m

0:22:10.250,0:22:16.500
not talking about micro populations like

0:22:13.039,0:22:18.419
Symbian or or or black

0:22:16.500,0:22:19.950
but really the three major operating

0:22:18.419,0:22:21.600
systems should be covered in some way

0:22:19.950,0:22:25.530
shape or form even if it’s a and this is

0:22:21.600,0:22:28.860
my number one tip is see if that tool

0:22:25.530,0:22:30.659
has a web app because if you don’t want

0:22:28.860,0:22:33.480
to have an application installed on your

0:22:30.659,0:22:36.419
tablet the best thing you can do is to

0:22:33.480,0:22:38.580
then be able to use the the browser the

0:22:36.419,0:22:40.860
mobile browser based web app and then

0:22:38.580,0:22:44.490
just create a short icon you know

0:22:40.860,0:22:46.530
basically a home icon which is a link to

0:22:44.490,0:22:50.370
that application and with many

0:22:46.530,0:22:52.530
applications I mean Trello you know a

0:22:50.370,0:22:54.539
lot of applications you can just create

0:22:52.530,0:22:56.280
that that home icon and when you go to

0:22:54.539,0:22:58.260
the web app you don’t even kind of you

0:22:56.280,0:23:00.960
don’t really even notice that you’re in

0:22:58.260,0:23:03.600
the in the web app and not on the mobile

0:23:00.960,0:23:05.580
application my good great examples

0:23:03.600,0:23:07.140
Facebook not because I’m against

0:23:05.580,0:23:08.820
Facebook at all I mean I’m you know I

0:23:07.140,0:23:10.919
teach social media all the time

0:23:08.820,0:23:12.960
my my big issue is that it’s a huge

0:23:10.919,0:23:15.990
application you know it’s over a hundred

0:23:12.960,0:23:17.610
megabytes in size and you know there’s

0:23:15.990,0:23:20.280
only a few applications I’m willing to

0:23:17.610,0:23:21.990
install on my you know my my operating

0:23:20.280,0:23:23.880
system my mobile operating systems that

0:23:21.990,0:23:26.730
are gonna be that large Evernote is one

0:23:23.880,0:23:28.679
of those you know and and and Google and

0:23:26.730,0:23:30.750
a couple of others but Facebook is just

0:23:28.679,0:23:33.570
too large and so I use the mobile

0:23:30.750,0:23:35.340
application the web application on on

0:23:33.570,0:23:37.610
the mobile tablet and on my mobile phone

0:23:35.340,0:23:40.860
and it’s great but so it’s a little

0:23:37.610,0:23:42.780
basically a desktop shortcut and it goes

0:23:40.860,0:23:45.270
directly to the browser it opens it up

0:23:42.780,0:23:47.730
and it interacts and engages with with

0:23:45.270,0:23:51.360
what I need it to do for Facebook almost

0:23:47.730,0:23:53.159
exactly like the mobile application so I

0:23:51.360,0:23:55.740
saved myself having to have all of that

0:23:53.159,0:23:57.799
storage and data sitting on my phone so

0:23:55.740,0:24:01.370
I like that all right let’s move on to

0:23:57.799,0:24:04.320
form factor I think one of the most

0:24:01.370,0:24:06.450
overlooked things about a mobile tablet

0:24:04.320,0:24:08.460
is that there are so many different form

0:24:06.450,0:24:12.030
factors right you know you have the

0:24:08.460,0:24:13.980
Chromebook flip which is a a hybrid

0:24:12.030,0:24:17.809
right you have them the tablet that

0:24:13.980,0:24:20.250
flips over and becomes a laptop device

0:24:17.809,0:24:21.840
the same thing with I would I would

0:24:20.250,0:24:24.149
imagine the surface fits into that

0:24:21.840,0:24:26.039
hybrid category although that that

0:24:24.149,0:24:27.780
keyboard really fully detaches whereas

0:24:26.039,0:24:29.340
the Chromebook flip it doesn’t you have

0:24:27.780,0:24:31.950
the Lenovo yoga

0:24:29.340,0:24:34.370
yoga books which are kind of a another

0:24:31.950,0:24:36.360
hybrid because they have handwriting

0:24:34.370,0:24:38.370
component to them you know where you can

0:24:36.360,0:24:41.190
draw and and really use the Wacom

0:24:38.370,0:24:44.430
technology built into it to fully be

0:24:41.190,0:24:46.890
creative with the stylus on not just the

0:24:44.430,0:24:49.530
screen but on this Wacom board that’s

0:24:46.890,0:24:52.290
attached to it that acts as a keyboard

0:24:49.530,0:24:54.270
with haptic response and all these other

0:24:52.290,0:24:55.830
things but then you know you flip the

0:24:54.270,0:24:58.380
keyboard behind it and it becomes a

0:24:55.830,0:25:01.770
normal tablet with either Android or

0:24:58.380,0:25:04.530
Windows RT on it so what do you guys

0:25:01.770,0:25:07.590
think about form factor how much and how

0:25:04.530,0:25:12.720
important is form factor for you I think

0:25:07.590,0:25:16.260
that the companies the design companies

0:25:12.720,0:25:19.410
the you know the apples the the Amazons

0:25:16.260,0:25:22.050
and the Lenovo’s and so forth the

0:25:19.410,0:25:25.560
impression I keep getting is that they

0:25:22.050,0:25:27.240
they don’t start with the actual use

0:25:25.560,0:25:31.080
case they may start with the software

0:25:27.240,0:25:33.090
use case or the the sort of the user use

0:25:31.080,0:25:36.030
case but not the not the user in the

0:25:33.090,0:25:39.480
biggest sense like for example where is

0:25:36.030,0:25:43.140
the where is the the tablet going to be

0:25:39.480,0:25:45.690
used in what circumstances what physical

0:25:43.140,0:25:48.360
form should it take I find those

0:25:45.690,0:25:51.360
questions to be solo add-on and after

0:25:48.360,0:25:55.230
the fact as opposed to thought about

0:25:51.360,0:25:58.500
ahead of time and sort of woven into the

0:25:55.230,0:26:00.330
design from the very beginning it’s just

0:25:58.500,0:26:02.160
my physical sense it’s more of a

0:26:00.330,0:26:03.750
visceral feeling that when I’m

0:26:02.160,0:26:06.210
interacting with my tablet or when I

0:26:03.750,0:26:11.130
borrow someone’s iPad I feel myself

0:26:06.210,0:26:12.990
fumbling around with the the package

0:26:11.130,0:26:17.000
it’s in which is usually some kind of

0:26:12.990,0:26:20.130
case the stand that comes with it the

0:26:17.000,0:26:21.720
way that the buttons are placed the

0:26:20.130,0:26:24.030
whole thing just seems to be an

0:26:21.720,0:26:26.250
afterthought and then the case that is

0:26:24.030,0:26:28.470
developed is sort of fulfills a function

0:26:26.250,0:26:30.600
of a stand and it fulfills all the

0:26:28.470,0:26:32.600
functions it protects it but it all

0:26:30.600,0:26:35.310
seems to be after the fact as opposed to

0:26:32.600,0:26:37.410
saying let me design

0:26:35.310,0:26:40.680
why don’t we design the product so that

0:26:37.410,0:26:42.900
say for my case so that this person was

0:26:40.680,0:26:47.100
going to consume that heart the content

0:26:42.900,0:26:49.920
sitting in an easy-chair has the easiest

0:26:47.100,0:26:56.130
and best possible total experience of

0:26:49.920,0:26:58.680
the entire physical sort of way it’s put

0:26:56.130,0:27:00.900
together as opposed to just the device

0:26:58.680,0:27:02.760
itself I find it it’s all and after the

0:27:00.900,0:27:05.580
fact that thought feel like there should

0:27:02.760,0:27:08.460
be human trials for this these

0:27:05.580,0:27:10.620
technologies especially when it comes to

0:27:08.460,0:27:12.480
form factor very similar to the way that

0:27:10.620,0:27:14.970
I see software developers sometimes not

0:27:12.480,0:27:16.320
have their users best interest in mind

0:27:14.970,0:27:17.460
when they’re developing a piece of

0:27:16.320,0:27:19.980
software right they’re trying to get a

0:27:17.460,0:27:22.200
job done and so they try to try to make

0:27:19.980,0:27:24.980
the software just do the job instead of

0:27:22.200,0:27:28.230
thinking how how would someone without

0:27:24.980,0:27:31.650
experience with this software be able to

0:27:28.230,0:27:33.750
have the ux guide them to getting that

0:27:31.650,0:27:36.600
work done as opposed to the opposite way

0:27:33.750,0:27:39.090
around and and i think that’s the same

0:27:36.600,0:27:40.920
way like form-factor it’s not most

0:27:39.090,0:27:44.400
technology I believe especially in the

0:27:40.920,0:27:46.920
mobile tablet world is not you know

0:27:44.400,0:27:49.110
actually economic you know it’s it’s a

0:27:46.920,0:27:52.770
uni of tiny keyboards that have been

0:27:49.110,0:27:54.960
compressed to force features right so

0:27:52.770,0:27:56.670
you can say it has a full keyboard and

0:27:54.960,0:27:58.440
it has all of these other things you

0:27:56.670,0:27:59.640
know and it has haptic feedback and it

0:27:58.440,0:28:01.800
has all these other things and it’s like

0:27:59.640,0:28:05.400
well that’s really great

0:28:01.800,0:28:07.890
however haptic keyboard is not really

0:28:05.400,0:28:10.140
great if the keyboard I can’t really

0:28:07.890,0:28:12.200
type on it well my fingers are so

0:28:10.140,0:28:14.940
squeezed together

0:28:12.200,0:28:17.760
touch them or that when I’m holding my

0:28:14.940,0:28:19.200
tablet for example it’s imbalanced right

0:28:17.760,0:28:21.900
I come with a martial arts background

0:28:19.200,0:28:24.210
and so when I think about swords and and

0:28:21.900,0:28:26.460
fighting we talk about balance right and

0:28:24.210,0:28:29.070
and you should be able to place a sword

0:28:26.460,0:28:31.890
on its on its hilt in your hand and feel

0:28:29.070,0:28:34.350
the balance of the of the handle and the

0:28:31.890,0:28:36.180
blade in in unison they should they

0:28:34.350,0:28:39.030
should be fully balanced so that you

0:28:36.180,0:28:42.600
have this this experience with the sword

0:28:39.030,0:28:44.340
that is an extension of you and so I

0:28:42.600,0:28:47.460
tend to think about that sense of

0:28:44.340,0:28:49.710
balance of anything in my hand and I put

0:28:47.460,0:28:52.080
a tablet in my hand and frequently you

0:28:49.710,0:28:54.330
know the first thing that comes to mind

0:28:52.080,0:28:55.470
is its weight is important and and of

0:28:54.330,0:28:56.400
course you know most of that is battery

0:28:55.470,0:28:57.900
and it’s

0:28:56.400,0:28:59.850
to have a larger battery it means it’s

0:28:57.900,0:29:01.920
going to be heavier I get that but most

0:28:59.850,0:29:03.900
often than not the weighting of tablets

0:29:01.920,0:29:06.810
is very awkward with the eight of the

0:29:03.900,0:29:09.300
weight being attempting to be evenly

0:29:06.810,0:29:11.040
distributed across the surface of the of

0:29:09.300,0:29:12.540
the tablet and that’s really actually

0:29:11.040,0:29:14.820
quite foolish right you would want the

0:29:12.540,0:29:17.610
tablet to be something that you can hold

0:29:14.820,0:29:19.400
easily in your hand as well as sit in a

0:29:17.610,0:29:21.990
stand easily as well and I’ve

0:29:19.400,0:29:23.880
infrequently seen a tablet that does

0:29:21.990,0:29:25.920
that the feeling of some of the tablets

0:29:23.880,0:29:29.490
as well you know sometimes they’re their

0:29:25.920,0:29:31.740
sharp edges like a clear 90-degree

0:29:29.490,0:29:37.850
corner and it’s like have you seen a

0:29:31.740,0:29:40.500
human hand before they designed that way

0:29:37.850,0:29:41.700
so so holding it for a long period of

0:29:40.500,0:29:43.620
time ends up being something that’s

0:29:41.700,0:29:45.750
quite painful I feel that way about the

0:29:43.620,0:29:48.990
Microsoft Surface you know the surface

0:29:45.750,0:29:50.730
is not designed for being held and and

0:29:48.990,0:29:52.860
if they had just smooths out the corners

0:29:50.730,0:29:55.320
and put some kind of rubberized coating

0:29:52.860,0:29:57.870
on on on the device it’ll be a much

0:29:55.320,0:30:00.810
nicer form factor and a little bit more

0:29:57.870,0:30:02.730
friendly to the hand and to being held

0:30:00.810,0:30:04.860
and that would make someone experience

0:30:02.730,0:30:07.350
the surface experience it would be

0:30:04.860,0:30:09.090
greatly enhanced by doing so so I think

0:30:07.350,0:30:11.220
I think form factor is really important

0:30:09.090,0:30:13.470
and I consider form factor to be also

0:30:11.220,0:30:16.560
screen size and screen resolution

0:30:13.470,0:30:18.060
because you know that that experience in

0:30:16.560,0:30:20.310
terms of how much real estate you have

0:30:18.060,0:30:23.040
in front of you it’s actually a very

0:30:20.310,0:30:24.900
very important factor in terms of making

0:30:23.040,0:30:26.280
sure you keeping your eyes healthy and

0:30:24.900,0:30:28.320
you’re not squinting and that you’re

0:30:26.280,0:30:29.880
able to increase and decrease things

0:30:28.320,0:30:31.710
like brightness and other things but

0:30:29.880,0:30:34.290
really this real estate equates to the

0:30:31.710,0:30:36.390
size of the text that you can have on

0:30:34.290,0:30:38.280
the screen I make my text a little bit

0:30:36.390,0:30:40.830
bigger then I think the average person

0:30:38.280,0:30:42.960
and that’s not because I’m having

0:30:40.830,0:30:45.290
trouble with seeing it’s because I don’t

0:30:42.960,0:30:48.180
want to have trouble as I age and so I

0:30:45.290,0:30:50.190
always recommend to people that you

0:30:48.180,0:30:52.140
increase the size by about 10 to 20

0:30:50.190,0:30:54.390
percent larger than you think is

0:30:52.140,0:30:56.550
comfortable that way you’re not

0:30:54.390,0:30:58.620
straining your eyes when you’re looking

0:30:56.550,0:31:01.230
at text on on a mobile screen because we

0:30:58.620,0:31:02.940
tend to keep our text smaller we’re

0:31:01.230,0:31:05.040
working our eyes especially if you use

0:31:02.940,0:31:06.810
it a lot you know if you’re on your as

0:31:05.040,0:31:09.510
as I am I’m looking at technology

0:31:06.810,0:31:09.870
screens every day all day by increasing

0:31:09.510,0:31:12.270
that

0:31:09.870,0:31:14.850
you’re actually decreasing the work your

0:31:12.270,0:31:16.470
eyes have to do to try to resolve and I

0:31:14.850,0:31:19.740
don’t mean if you’re if you’re already

0:31:16.470,0:31:21.419
using 20 point font all day then you’re

0:31:19.740,0:31:22.710
not having a problem but if you’re using

0:31:21.419,0:31:24.299
10 point font

0:31:22.710,0:31:26.580
you should have probably the screen

0:31:24.299,0:31:28.350
resolved at about 20% larger that’s

0:31:26.580,0:31:30.480
going to help reduce the strain on your

0:31:28.350,0:31:32.760
eyes you’re right and there is nothing

0:31:30.480,0:31:34.799
that will come and solve they said on

0:31:32.760,0:31:37.620
what you said the problem is with the

0:31:34.799,0:31:40.200
tablet came and the first tablet to

0:31:37.620,0:31:43.260
start showing up and people start

0:31:40.200,0:31:46.049
considering oh well I may be able to do

0:31:43.260,0:31:49.140
my job in this topic so what was the

0:31:46.049,0:31:51.270
first thing people did let’s attach a

0:31:49.140,0:31:53.640
keyboard to the bottom of the tablet in

0:31:51.270,0:31:55.679
other words let’s make it as close as

0:31:53.640,0:31:57.210
possible as what we understand a

0:31:55.679,0:32:02.149
computer is aka

0:31:57.210,0:32:06.360
I love them okay if you look images of

0:32:02.149,0:32:09.059
tablets and people using tablets most

0:32:06.360,0:32:11.220
people want to use the tablet as a

0:32:09.059,0:32:14.520
laptop and that doesn’t work because the

0:32:11.220,0:32:16.770
reason a lot of work is the weight is on

0:32:14.520,0:32:19.470
the bottom and the screen doesn’t weight

0:32:16.770,0:32:22.169
in that’s what make a department so in

0:32:19.470,0:32:24.720
order to make a tablet work that way

0:32:22.169,0:32:28.110
since the mask of the weight is on the

0:32:24.720,0:32:30.870
tablet side then manufacturers need to

0:32:28.110,0:32:33.419
make the keyboards super heavy so that

0:32:30.870,0:32:35.700
way the balance otherwise the tablet

0:32:33.419,0:32:39.419
will always fell down that problem one

0:32:35.700,0:32:41.970
problem too is as the evolution of the

0:32:39.419,0:32:45.210
tablet begin to King okay

0:32:41.970,0:32:47.700
people and the devices begin getting

0:32:45.210,0:32:50.010
powerful I’m talking about 710 years ago

0:32:47.700,0:32:52.649
what happened was what you described

0:32:50.010,0:32:56.279
early on when we said well Android I

0:32:52.649,0:32:59.070
start giving a big part of the world the

0:32:56.279,0:33:01.620
chance to have the first computer I’m

0:32:59.070,0:33:04.760
sorry the first computer for most of the

0:33:01.620,0:33:08.580
world have not been a Windows machine

0:33:04.760,0:33:12.659
obviously not a Mac qhorin is the first

0:33:08.580,0:33:15.360
machine for most people what an Android

0:33:12.659,0:33:18.899
device an Android phone that’s where the

0:33:15.360,0:33:21.090
biggest number of the population begin

0:33:18.899,0:33:23.610
gearing their first experience to have a

0:33:21.090,0:33:27.270
whole computer and that experience

0:33:23.610,0:33:30.270
new computer was really on the form of a

0:33:27.270,0:33:34.880
mobile phone not on the form of a tablet

0:33:30.270,0:33:38.100
a lot of users from the user perspective

0:33:34.880,0:33:40.679
they leave or they have access to a full

0:33:38.100,0:33:43.620
blown computer will be a work or their

0:33:40.679,0:33:46.110
main machine the main device it comes to

0:33:43.620,0:33:49.170
be a mobile phone in many cases an

0:33:46.110,0:33:51.299
Android mobile phone when you come to

0:33:49.170,0:33:53.970
the ergonomics and you come on how to

0:33:51.299,0:33:56.760
use it and you think on tablet a lot of

0:33:53.970,0:33:59.840
people think ok the tablet may give me a

0:33:56.760,0:34:03.809
better more portable laptop experience

0:33:59.840,0:34:07.220
but we still the first iPad came out in

0:34:03.809,0:34:12.540
2010 7 years 7 years later

0:34:07.220,0:34:15.840
ok we are still trying to make it as a

0:34:12.540,0:34:18.179
lot – ok and doesn’t matter which one

0:34:15.840,0:34:20.399
you pick go and pick something go and

0:34:18.179,0:34:23.040
pick you can pick even the Chromebooks

0:34:20.399,0:34:25.139
with the dual think everybody has tried

0:34:23.040,0:34:28.200
to make let me see how we make this a

0:34:25.139,0:34:31.919
lot – like or look like a lot – because

0:34:28.200,0:34:34.649
what we understand as productive is

0:34:31.919,0:34:37.619
allowed to perform I’m not saying it’s

0:34:34.649,0:34:40.260
not this going to change or not change I

0:34:37.619,0:34:42.379
don’t know ok they’re very obvious yeah

0:34:40.260,0:34:45.510
I have a keyboard in front of mine but

0:34:42.379,0:34:49.379
what people haven’t understand

0:34:45.510,0:34:51.830
GEB for a tablet to be productive or to

0:34:49.379,0:34:55.919
how to produce a productive experience

0:34:51.830,0:35:00.330
the laptop it’s optional when you had

0:34:55.919,0:35:03.180
your all PC your PC keyboard and mouse

0:35:00.330,0:35:06.240
was a requirement when you move to the

0:35:03.180,0:35:09.180
laptop keyboard and mouse still was a

0:35:06.240,0:35:11.670
requirement we should touch interface

0:35:09.180,0:35:14.940
and not for everything but for a lot of

0:35:11.670,0:35:17.790
things the keyboard and obviously the

0:35:14.940,0:35:20.700
mounds are optional and in many cases

0:35:17.790,0:35:23.609
not required but on to people

0:35:20.700,0:35:27.000
internalize that those two elements are

0:35:23.609,0:35:29.490
optional and you may not need the

0:35:27.000,0:35:32.010
evolution that we need it’s going to

0:35:29.490,0:35:35.310
continue fading when I tell people

0:35:32.010,0:35:36.869
moving to iPad owned and coach them to

0:35:35.310,0:35:39.749
go iPad home

0:35:36.869,0:35:42.450
look at the workbook and all that the

0:35:39.749,0:35:45.569
first frustration people have if they

0:35:42.450,0:35:48.329
the lack of mouth it’s not the power on

0:35:45.569,0:35:50.789
the machine if not the battery is not

0:35:48.329,0:35:53.190
the way it’s not the software is the

0:35:50.789,0:35:55.619
fact that the iPad will not have about

0:35:53.190,0:35:57.779
how I’m going to do the clip oh you have

0:35:55.619,0:36:00.690
13 inches of touchscreen what else you

0:35:57.779,0:36:03.690
want but for most people is but I want

0:36:00.690,0:36:07.170
to have that little mouse and to move a

0:36:03.690,0:36:11.279
cursor around the screen until we break

0:36:07.170,0:36:13.680
those it’s not going to happen and the

0:36:11.279,0:36:17.279
reality is with mobile phones getting

0:36:13.680,0:36:19.229
more and more and more powerful I don’t

0:36:17.279,0:36:22.920
think it’s going to have Palm Pilot

0:36:19.229,0:36:23.670
before it went bankruptcy the founder of

0:36:22.920,0:36:26.430
Palm Pilot

0:36:23.670,0:36:30.749
he came with a concept that was called a

0:36:26.430,0:36:33.989
palm folio okay and people at that time

0:36:30.749,0:36:36.809
laugh I found for that basically what it

0:36:33.989,0:36:39.150
was was a keyboard on a screen that will

0:36:36.809,0:36:41.130
have connect to your mobile phone use

0:36:39.150,0:36:43.170
the power of your mobile phone and just

0:36:41.130,0:36:46.140
give you a 10 inch screen with a

0:36:43.170,0:36:48.029
full-size keyboard okay and when I saw

0:36:46.140,0:36:50.609
that concept I said that’s the future

0:36:48.029,0:36:53.460
the problem was he who came ahead of

0:36:50.609,0:36:57.329
time it was way too early on the rage

0:36:53.460,0:37:01.559
for people to see it but I guarantee you

0:36:57.329,0:37:04.680
that if HP who wants the patent for that

0:37:01.559,0:37:07.140
come up with a device where you can now

0:37:04.680,0:37:08.670
get your mobile phone and just carry a

0:37:07.140,0:37:11.009
dumb terminal that will connect

0:37:08.670,0:37:13.049
bluetooth with your phone give you now a

0:37:11.009,0:37:14.969
10 inch of screen on a keyboard to work

0:37:13.049,0:37:18.239
and then when you close it everything

0:37:14.969,0:37:21.900
gets back to your mobile device they

0:37:18.239,0:37:24.329
will sell more devices than the number

0:37:21.900,0:37:27.479
of tablets we have been clean salt in

0:37:24.329,0:37:31.349
the market because I think for most

0:37:27.479,0:37:33.930
people their main device it’s not a

0:37:31.349,0:37:37.650
laptop not even the tablet if their

0:37:33.930,0:37:39.329
mobile phone I think you were talking

0:37:37.650,0:37:41.219
about Jeff Hawkins right the founder of

0:37:39.329,0:37:43.200
Pompadour appalling that’s what I’m

0:37:41.219,0:37:44.969
talking about this yeah yeah it’s

0:37:43.200,0:37:47.069
actually really remarkable I want I want

0:37:44.969,0:37:50.039
to cover a couple of other things one is

0:37:47.069,0:37:50.580
that when you think about input output

0:37:50.039,0:37:52.890
as

0:37:50.580,0:37:54.900
technology engineers are want to do we

0:37:52.890,0:37:57.180
have these ways of inputting into a

0:37:54.900,0:37:58.770
device whether that be touching the

0:37:57.180,0:38:01.320
device whether it be a physical keyboard

0:37:58.770,0:38:04.010
or a touchscreen display we can speak

0:38:01.320,0:38:06.930
into the microphone by using audible and

0:38:04.010,0:38:09.510
voice-activated operations including

0:38:06.930,0:38:10.950
software for recognizing what we’re

0:38:09.510,0:38:13.020
saying so that we can have it

0:38:10.950,0:38:15.630
interpreted to text or commands we can

0:38:13.020,0:38:17.880
gesture to cameras right so the the

0:38:15.630,0:38:21.210
cameras in our laptops and computers and

0:38:17.880,0:38:23.640
and and other devices can interpret our

0:38:21.210,0:38:25.230
movements as something and of course

0:38:23.640,0:38:26.880
there’s our accelerometers inside of our

0:38:25.230,0:38:30.090
devices there’s a lot of ways in which

0:38:26.880,0:38:32.580
we can control a device but it’s still

0:38:30.090,0:38:33.780
very limited and I think that’s really I

0:38:32.580,0:38:36.500
think that’s really something that we

0:38:33.780,0:38:39.360
have to overcome over over time as

0:38:36.500,0:38:40.890
technologists Society technologists

0:38:39.360,0:38:42.810
within that need to figure that out

0:38:40.890,0:38:44.820
whether that be I know this sounds very

0:38:42.810,0:38:46.620
sci-fi but whether the devices actually

0:38:44.820,0:38:49.440
are connected in some way shape or form

0:38:46.620,0:38:51.330
to our brain functions so that you would

0:38:49.440,0:38:54.690
have something that’s interpreting your

0:38:51.330,0:38:56.640
brain output so that it can actually be

0:38:54.690,0:38:58.620
communicated directly to the computing

0:38:56.640,0:39:00.900
device that you have I think that’s the

0:38:58.620,0:39:02.640
optimal way I think that using my voice

0:39:00.900,0:39:05.220
or typing on a keyboard is very

0:39:02.640,0:39:08.940
inefficient my brain processes at

0:39:05.220,0:39:12.180
magnitudes greater than and faster than

0:39:08.940,0:39:14.820
the that I could ever physically type or

0:39:12.180,0:39:15.900
that I could ever physically speak and I

0:39:14.820,0:39:18.690
think there’s there’s going to be a

0:39:15.900,0:39:21.540
there’s gonna have to be a huge leap

0:39:18.690,0:39:24.330
from from where we are today in putting

0:39:21.540,0:39:26.340
into devices to where we go and and

0:39:24.330,0:39:28.860
that’s just really just a reality factor

0:39:26.340,0:39:30.870
there I would like to talk about budget

0:39:28.860,0:39:32.760
just a little bit which is that you know

0:39:30.870,0:39:35.040
choosing a tablet one of the primary

0:39:32.760,0:39:38.520
functions that’s going to increase or

0:39:35.040,0:39:41.310
decrease the screen resolution your

0:39:38.520,0:39:43.980
processor speed battery life memory

0:39:41.310,0:39:46.110
whether that be ROM or Ram onboard

0:39:43.980,0:39:47.460
temporary memory as well as as the

0:39:46.110,0:39:49.290
memory that’s holding your operating

0:39:47.460,0:39:51.930
system and long-term storage of things

0:39:49.290,0:39:55.080
and whether or not you have cellular

0:39:51.930,0:39:57.540
access or only Wi-Fi access to the

0:39:55.080,0:39:59.670
Internet through that device right so if

0:39:57.540,0:40:01.200
you need cellular access so making sure

0:39:59.670,0:40:03.180
that your tablet has that connectivity

0:40:01.200,0:40:04.170
is also important and those are all

0:40:03.180,0:40:06.630
going to be priced

0:40:04.170,0:40:09.299
Duras right so you know you really need

0:40:06.630,0:40:10.950
to think about that as as Francis was

0:40:09.299,0:40:14.099
talking about earlier the Amazon fire

0:40:10.950,0:40:16.680
ends up being probably on the least

0:40:14.099,0:40:18.210
inexpensive the least expensive version

0:40:16.680,0:40:20.339
of versions of that I think at the time

0:40:18.210,0:40:22.829
of this recording you can get an Amazon

0:40:20.339,0:40:26.010
fire tablet on the 7-inch I think for

0:40:22.829,0:40:28.410
like 50 bucks the next level up yeah

0:40:26.010,0:40:30.690
yeah and that that’s that’s great

0:40:28.410,0:40:33.119
and the next tier up the 8 inch version

0:40:30.690,0:40:35.130
of that the 7 inch version is the $49

0:40:33.119,0:40:37.980
one I think and then the 8 inch version

0:40:35.130,0:40:39.900
is 80 $80 I think is something like that

0:40:37.980,0:40:42.690
and while we’re talking about the Amazon

0:40:39.900,0:40:44.220
fire that wants something that I have

0:40:42.690,0:40:46.530
been frequently recommending to people

0:40:44.220,0:40:49.170
is that if you have a kid if you have

0:40:46.530,0:40:51.599
children and you are looking to get just

0:40:49.170,0:40:53.609
a tablet that can beat up you know can

0:40:51.599,0:40:56.160
be beat up and and tossed around and

0:40:53.609,0:40:59.430
really not worry about it is actually

0:40:56.160,0:41:01.920
the Amazon fire kids edition and so the

0:40:59.430,0:41:06.329
kids edition is this is this great

0:41:01.920,0:41:09.000
little device it is designed with a like

0:41:06.329,0:41:12.569
a sheath like a foam sheath so that you

0:41:09.000,0:41:15.599
can just round and such and and it can

0:41:12.569,0:41:16.740
be beat up kind of but what but but

0:41:15.599,0:41:18.660
that’s besides the point because it’s

0:41:16.740,0:41:21.510
just a basically an Amazon fire tablet

0:41:18.660,0:41:23.010
that has been converted it’s the

0:41:21.510,0:41:24.869
operating system is actually the same we

0:41:23.010,0:41:27.119
just turn it on or off but basically it

0:41:24.869,0:41:29.329
comes with the kids version enabled but

0:41:27.119,0:41:33.410
what’s cool about it is it comes with a

0:41:29.329,0:41:35.520
free one-year amazon free time

0:41:33.410,0:41:39.210
subscription so you basically have

0:41:35.520,0:41:43.650
access to all of the kids content on

0:41:39.210,0:41:45.510
Amazon Prime and a warranty so that if

0:41:43.650,0:41:47.940
the kid breaks it in that time frame

0:41:45.510,0:41:49.890
they will replace the tablet through

0:41:47.940,0:41:52.650
whatever warranty program that they have

0:41:49.890,0:41:55.670
so for whatever it costs I think it’s

0:41:52.650,0:41:58.020
like 130 bucks you get this child proof

0:41:55.670,0:42:00.059
tablet that they can that you can have

0:41:58.020,0:42:02.520
replaced several times in the course of

0:42:00.059,0:42:04.890
a year and then you can replace it with

0:42:02.520,0:42:06.510
a lot of content built right into it you

0:42:04.890,0:42:08.190
know because of access through Amazon

0:42:06.510,0:42:10.559
free time so just something to consider

0:42:08.190,0:42:12.390
and so I think that’s really quite

0:42:10.559,0:42:15.089
important for you to think about but you

0:42:12.390,0:42:17.680
can then get up into the thousand to to

0:42:15.089,0:42:19.270
probably $1,500 range with

0:42:17.680,0:42:22.089
with a tablet very easily and quickly

0:42:19.270,0:42:23.890
and and then you can even go further

0:42:22.089,0:42:26.559
beyond that with with some really high

0:42:23.890,0:42:29.140
end you know tablets that cover a whole

0:42:26.559,0:42:31.690
wide variety of of manufacturers I think

0:42:29.140,0:42:33.819
of all the major major tech companies

0:42:31.690,0:42:37.270
have a tablet probably in the in the

0:42:33.819,0:42:39.819
near $2,000 range once you start to put

0:42:37.270,0:42:42.010
all the bells and whistles plus think

0:42:39.819,0:42:43.660
about how you’re gonna budget in getting

0:42:42.010,0:42:45.549
the keyboard attachment or if you’re

0:42:43.660,0:42:49.150
going to get a case or a screen

0:42:45.549,0:42:51.220
protector or a stylus and how those

0:42:49.150,0:42:53.980
accessories actually bundle into the

0:42:51.220,0:42:57.279
into the price of the overall cost of

0:42:53.980,0:43:00.609
acquisition for your tablet okay so it’s

0:42:57.279,0:43:04.000
always important to consider it took

0:43:00.609,0:43:06.190
your advice about doing I think you said

0:43:04.000,0:43:08.349
focus groups or giving the use of

0:43:06.190,0:43:10.720
testing with the kids but I didn’t do it

0:43:08.349,0:43:14.170
with the adults yeah I think I think

0:43:10.720,0:43:16.690
they did human trials with children and

0:43:14.170,0:43:19.390
they and I think it’s the problem I see

0:43:16.690,0:43:21.549
with with apps and software and devices

0:43:19.390,0:43:24.549
and everything productivity related

0:43:21.549,0:43:26.529
certainly is that the the the those who

0:43:24.549,0:43:29.770
are doing the developing are so close to

0:43:26.529,0:43:32.230
the product that they can’t see they

0:43:29.770,0:43:35.079
don’t get the the world view or the

0:43:32.230,0:43:38.500
habits the behaviors of the first time

0:43:35.079,0:43:41.500
user so they did they lose a grasp of

0:43:38.500,0:43:45.880
what their real customer is going to be

0:43:41.500,0:43:47.500
using the program or the device for and

0:43:45.880,0:43:48.730
that produces these gaps that we’ve

0:43:47.500,0:43:51.010
talked about today

0:43:48.730,0:43:53.410
I remember hearing about this one piece

0:43:51.010,0:43:55.329
of software that I I don’t think it was

0:43:53.410,0:43:59.319
Microsoft but it was a company that

0:43:55.329,0:44:02.440
produces software and the the developers

0:43:59.319,0:44:04.809
had the wherewithal that’s called its

0:44:02.440,0:44:08.500
brilliance to make sure that the

0:44:04.809,0:44:09.789
programmers used slow computers rather

0:44:08.500,0:44:12.520
than give them the latest equipment

0:44:09.789,0:44:14.230
which they of course would love and they

0:44:12.520,0:44:16.660
would prefer to design and and they

0:44:14.230,0:44:19.420
would do their testing on and it would

0:44:16.660,0:44:21.940
give them this warp to reality but not

0:44:19.420,0:44:23.799
the average reality that their customers

0:44:21.940,0:44:26.710
will experience because their customers

0:44:23.799,0:44:28.990
are typically out slow computers so that

0:44:26.710,0:44:30.770
is that’s one way to fill a gap but I

0:44:28.990,0:44:31.760
think there are other ways

0:44:30.770,0:44:34.400
sample of orcas groups that you

0:44:31.760,0:44:36.740
mentioned because we as customers we

0:44:34.400,0:44:38.420
bring we bring behaviors to every

0:44:36.740,0:44:40.850
product that we’re about to use we bring

0:44:38.420,0:44:43.970
a worldview and if that’s not taken into

0:44:40.850,0:44:46.820
account then we could easily reject the

0:44:43.970,0:44:48.890
product or the service or the device for

0:44:46.820,0:44:51.020
the wrong reasons yeah I think I think

0:44:48.890,0:44:54.500
one great example of this is how

0:44:51.020,0:44:56.240
Facebook out you know after a while Mark

0:44:54.500,0:45:00.200
Zuckerberg required all of his

0:44:56.240,0:45:01.880
developers to use Android phones because

0:45:00.200,0:45:04.370
they had they had heard enough that the

0:45:01.880,0:45:06.980
Facebook experience on Android was was

0:45:04.370,0:45:09.140
abysmal and that and so he just

0:45:06.980,0:45:11.300
basically said okay well your nobody

0:45:09.140,0:45:14.300
gets an iPhone you all have to use

0:45:11.300,0:45:15.980
Android on the you know I’m guessing on

0:45:14.300,0:45:20.480
the mobile team that was developing it

0:45:15.980,0:45:23.030
and that you know that pushed them to to

0:45:20.480,0:45:25.760
bring Facebook’s mobile app to parity

0:45:23.030,0:45:26.930
with with the iOS version and I think

0:45:25.760,0:45:29.240
that’s appropriate I think it’s

0:45:26.930,0:45:32.180
important for there to be a good user

0:45:29.240,0:45:35.270
experience a cross-platform across

0:45:32.180,0:45:37.340
different platforms and and and and I

0:45:35.270,0:45:39.290
think there’s a responsibility I mean I

0:45:37.340,0:45:41.600
really do believe that there is a strong

0:45:39.290,0:45:44.780
responsibility for technologists to

0:45:41.600,0:45:47.180
steward the development of society

0:45:44.780,0:45:49.610
through the creation of good software I

0:45:47.180,0:45:51.290
see this all the time with with all

0:45:49.610,0:45:53.540
kinds of application development where

0:45:51.290,0:45:55.970
they aren’t taking it as consideration

0:45:53.540,0:45:58.520
that there are human hearts and minds on

0:45:55.970,0:46:00.830
the other side of the code and when you

0:45:58.520,0:46:03.650
put that into the world that’s affecting

0:46:00.830,0:46:05.270
people in in very real ways I think the

0:46:03.650,0:46:06.800
Google Maps team you know they

0:46:05.270,0:46:09.350
understand that when you put that

0:46:06.800,0:46:12.410
software you know on a mobile device

0:46:09.350,0:46:15.170
you’re truly affecting people in the

0:46:12.410,0:46:17.930
real world but I think other developers

0:46:15.170,0:46:19.790
don’t get that sense of responsibility

0:46:17.930,0:46:21.350
that you know like not a car crashing

0:46:19.790,0:46:28.700
because you’re following Google Maps off

0:46:21.350,0:46:31.220
a cliff you know but that’s that’s where

0:46:28.700,0:46:34.310
that’s why that team has such a rigorous

0:46:31.220,0:46:36.830
testing you know QA policy you know but

0:46:34.310,0:46:38.870
the but I think all software is it

0:46:36.830,0:46:41.210
should be required for that because you

0:46:38.870,0:46:43.430
know if your productivity software and I

0:46:41.210,0:46:44.390
mean from your basic task manager right

0:46:43.430,0:46:46.910
on up to something

0:46:44.390,0:46:50.750
like Google Maps everything in between

0:46:46.910,0:46:53.630
it is truly making some kind of effect

0:46:50.750,0:46:55.819
on your ability to get things done and

0:46:53.630,0:46:58.039
and when that happens or doesn’t happen

0:46:55.819,0:46:59.420
it really is it’s it’s not just

0:46:58.039,0:47:01.849
frustrating for the user but it’s

0:46:59.420,0:47:03.700
potentially threatening to all of us

0:47:01.849,0:47:07.369
because it creates ripples of

0:47:03.700,0:47:09.980
unproductive input or output and/or

0:47:07.369,0:47:12.500
really great productive output when done

0:47:09.980,0:47:15.619
when done correctly well this has been
