6 Features - Your Windows 8 Tablet Must Have

Windows 8 Build for Touchscreen Devices? Yes, but do your new Windows 8 Tablet have these 7 features?

Before going to overview these features, first we talk a little about New Windows 8 Operating System. There are two main version of Windows 8 are available for touchscreen gadgets, "Windows RT and Windows 8". 
Basically Microsoft prepare and organize this new operating system for touchscreen devices, no doubt, and doesn't matter if its RT or 8 version, but Windows RT is slightly different than 8, as it designed to be more friendly with Touchscreen devices, Internet connectivity and as well for a device with longer battery life. Although some tablets makers ( I would say) don't like it, but if we go deep inside, Windows RT is viewed as more of a tablet operating system in the mold of Apple's iOS, while Windows 8 tablets may appeal to PC users looking for backward application compatibility. 
According to PC Advisor (a technology magazine publishers), "The cheapest RT tablet is Microsoft's Surface, which starts at £399." And "Windows 8 tablets will be competitive on price, however.

Lets talk about 6 features your new Windows 8 tablet must have.

1. Application compatibility

With a few exceptions, existing Windows applications will not work on RT. This is partly because ARM processors haven't previously supported major desktop Windows client OSes. But existing applications will work on Windows 8, as previous Windows OSes over the past few decades were written primarily for Intel or AMD processors. Microsoft has adopted a new application model with Windows RT and 8, and users will be able to download apps through the Windows Store.

hp laserjet 1320 Printer Supporter Windows 7
Today Windows 7 is the most popular Operating System using in Homes & Offices all over. In early days due to non-compatibility and support to many Devices (like Printers, Scanners etc.), Windows 7 was not a Primary Operating System according to Professional’s remarks.
Many companies made their devices compatible to this New Operating System with updating their Software and Drivers for Devices like Printer, Scanners etc., some of other companies made brand new Devices for new operating system. But some devices were far behind due to non-compatibility with Windows 7, and users were waiting for new release of drivers.
Hp LaserJet 1320 is also one of the device, we still hoping from Hewlett Packard to launch updated drivers for 1320, to make it compatible with Windows 7.

Top 10 New Features in iOS 5

iOS 5, Apple’ very soon going to liberate Mobile Operating System for the iPhone, iPad and iPad 2, and iPod Touch (third and fourth generation), has more than 200 upgrades and improvements over the previous OS, according to Apple. Some of the changes are significant, even if they do riff on signature features of other platforms.
Developers have had a chance to push around at an appetizer of the new operating system for several weeks, although the public is only just now learning about what they can expect. We've trolled the information that's come directly from Apple and culled out the most exciting pieces—when a company touts 200 changes in a single product, you can bet that not all of them are highlights.
Top 10 New Features in iOS 5
The big picture is this: The iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch will see more integration, both among the apps each device runs and between one another. The number of clicks, taps, and swipes it takes you to achieve a task will be reduced significantly—and maybe even reduce.
From the statements so far, at least one app that will be preinstalled on all new iOS devices is a variation on some other popular app that users formerly had to buy from a third-party developer, and my hunch is we'll see more of this in the future.
iOS 5 will be compatible with: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 3rd Generation, iPod touch 4th Generation, iPad, iPad2, and presumably the iPhone 5.
There's prosperity to be thrilled about. Here are the ten features that stand out the most in iOS 5.

How to Update Drivers in Windows 7?

This is one of the very common question to a PC owner, that “How he update drivers in Windows?”
Answer is that you might need to perform a driver update in Windows for all kinds of reasons. Usually, a driver update is used as a solution to an issue with how Windows works with a piece of Hardware.
Updating a driver can also enable new or updated features for the hardware, which doubles the role of a hardware in a PC.
PC Supporter answering for this question in these words “Drivers are updated in Windows by using a driver update wizard from within Device Manager, which is available under the right click menu by clicking on “Computer” or “My Computer” icon on your Desktop. The driver update wizard walks you through the entire driver update process, making updating drivers a fairly painless task.”
Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP all have slightly different ways and processes to complete driver updates:-
Driver Update in Windows 7:  Updating drivers in all versions of Windows is necessary when a hardware device doesn’t install automatically, as well as in Windows 7.
When the hardware is having some kind of problem, or as part of some other troubleshooting with the hardware. Updating a driver is many times the solution to a Device Manager error code, and also updating drivers for a piece of hardware will also sometimes enable additional features for the hardware.
Follow the steps to update drivers from within Device Manager in Windows 7:
1. Download the latest drivers from the hardware manufacturer’s website. Drivers from the manufacturer will be most current but there are several other driver download options.
As part of this driver update process, you can choose to update drivers from a hardware installation disc or from Windows Update but updating drivers manually (as described below) is usually more effective.
Before going to read the steps below, Note one thing that many drivers come integrated with software that automatically installs the driver. The manufacturer’s website will tell you if the driver download is packaged this way and if so, the steps below aren’t usually necessary.
2. Open Device Manager from the Control Panel or right click on Computer icon in windows 7.
3. With Device Manager open, locate the hardware device that you want to update the drivers for.
4. After finding the hardware you’re updating drivers for, right click on the hardware’s name or icon and choose Properties. In this Properties window, click the Driver tab.
5. Click the Update Driver button.
Note: The Update Driver Software wizard will begin.
6. On the “How do you want to search for driver software?” window, click the Browse my computer for driver software.
7. In the next window labeled Browse for driver software on your computer, click on Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, located at the bottom of the window.
8. Click the Have Disk… button located under the text box.
9. Click the Browse… button on the Install From Disk dialog box that appeared. In the Locate File dialog box that appears next, navigate to the folder that you extracted as part of the driver download in Step 1 above. There may be multiple folders within the extracted folder so be sure to work your way to the one for Windows 7 if it exists. Don’t worry if you don’t find one labeled for Windows 7.
10. Click any INF file that displays in the file list and click the Open button.
Note: INF files are the only files that Device Manager accepts for driver setup information. See the tips at the bottom of the page for some INF file troubleshooting.
11. Click the OK button back on the Install From Disk dialog box.
12. Choose the newly added hardware in the text box and then click the Next> button.
If you are prompted with a message warning you about how the device driver may not be compatible with your hardware, click the Yes button to continue installing the driver. Many drivers are not Windows 7 certified but are still perfectly safe to install and use.
Important: If you are installing a driver obtained from anywhere other than the manufacturer of the hardware, click the No button instead and obtain drivers from the manufacturer directly.
13. The Windows 7 Update Driver Software wizard will now use the instructions provided in the INF file from Step 10 to install the updated drivers for your hardware.
14. Follow any additional instruction on screen to complete the drive update.
15. You may be prompted to restart your computer after the driver update is complete.
Make Sure:- Not all driver update require a restart of your computer. Even if you’re not prompted, I always recommend restarting anyway. The driver update process involves changes to the Windows Registry and other important areas of your computer and restarting is a good way to confirm that updating drivers hasn’t negatively impacted some other area of Windows.
If a driver update causes a problem, you can always roll back the driver.
Tips:
a. Couldn’t find an INF file in a folder from your driver download? Try looking in another folder.
b. Couldn’t find an INF file in any folder from the extracted driver files? The driver download itself may have been damaged. Try downloading and extracting the device drivers again.
c. Find multiple folders with INF files? Try each folder until you find the drivers for your specific hardware.
