#GPPT Where can I find GP Power Tools Documentation


David Meego - Click for blog homepageGP Power Tools incorporates a feedback survey which it will prompt an administrator user 30 days after a new installation or 2 days after an updated installation.

The history behind the survey goes back to the Support Debugging Tool days. The SDT did not have any registration system and downloads were not being tracked, so it was an attempt to get usage data and product feedback to help justify the continued development of the tool.

Anyhow, one of the questions asks for a score between 1 and 9 for Documentation and a number of respondents have given a low score over the years.

GPD Pocket 2 7″ Mini Laptop Windows 10 PC


David Meego - Click for blog homepageYou might have seen my posts on Twitter and Facebook recently about my new toy mini laptop PC, the crowd funded GPD Pocket 2.

I have been burnt before with crowd funded projects (I supported 3 smartwatches and only one make it to production and it under-delivered 😦 ), so I was wary of getting involved again. However, this was the second generation of the GPD Pocket and demo devices had already been delivered to a number of YouTube reviewers. I felt fairly safe to get involved with crowd funding again, as this would give me a discount and get the device earlier.
