The Xiao Mi 10400 Power Bank is a kind of gadget myth, it's said to be cheap yet well built, and performs EXCEPTIONALLY well in contradiction to it's price tag. When Xiao Mi finally starting having a distribution presence in Malaysia I decided to pick one up and see if it is truly worthy of all the praise the Internet has given it.

I'm refering to the Asus Vivotab Note 8 of course. What makes it the ULTIMATE meeting Windows Tablet?

  • Small portable 8" Form Factor
  • Intel Atom Baytrail for long battery life and great relative performance
  • Wacom Digitizer Technology!!!
  • A BLOODY SILO TO KEEP THE DIGITIZER IN THE TABLET!!!

It's amazing how many people trip up on that ONE LAST damn item! Don't they know that if you don't keep the pen IN the device then no one will use it because everyone will be afraid of losing the expensive pen and thus take it with them sparingly (glares at Microsoft for Surface Pro digitizer mount solution)

So now we have here what could be the BEST Meeting Windows Tablet, and yet... as usual... the ball is dropped somewhere find out where in the review.

Here's my collection of facepalm videos that oh so accurately depict what happens when you're an ISV.

This is what happens when you go through the developement process.

This is what you go through when negotiating with your clients on payment.

And if you're ever brought into a brain storming meeting, you have a high chance of finding yourself in this situation.

Due to size or cost constraints, there're quite a few 8" Windows Tablets which don't posses a video out port, the only video out solution then is to either use a USB to video dongle, or to use Miracast to transmit to a receiver, here's what happened when I tried to test these two methods out.

First I try out a USB 3.0 to HDMI Dongle.

Then I try out using Miracast.

And here's what happened when I tried to use the USB 3.0 to HDMI Dongle on the Dell Venue Pro which didn't seem to be able to supply enough power!
