Microsoft Surface Laptop and Windows 10 S - Episode 138

2017-05-21

This week, Avram Piltch discusses one of the topics we have missed over the past few weeks: Microsoft announcements. First is the Surface Laptop, not to be confused with the Surface Book. The new Laptop is not a convertible, but instead a traditional laptop. It comes in a variety of configurations, including color choices, something new in the Surface family. Next up is Windows 10 S, the new edition of Windows intended for schools. This edition is essentially a full version of Windows 10, with the limitation of not being able to install software from outside of the Windows Store. This allows for a greater sense of security for school officials, without any issues from students. Microsoft will use Windows 10 S to compete with Chromebooks, which have recently begun to infest schools because of perceived security.

Best and Worst Laptop Brands 2017 - Episode 136

2017-04-09

This week, Avram Piltch discusses LAPTOP Magazine's 2017 [url=http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/laptop-brand-ratings]Best and Worst Laptop Brands[/url] results. While he is not able to discuss who took the top few spots, he was able to talk about one company who fell from grace this year: Apple. In the past 7 years, Apple has always taken the top spot. This year, the company fell not one place, but to a tie for 5th place. Considering in 2016 only 10 brands were rated, falling to a tie for 5th is beyond collapse. Avram discusses how their rankings work, what went wrong for Apple this year, and what went right for some of the others.

FIRST Looks

The RoboShow @ Orlando Regional 2017

2017-04-05

[FIRST] competitions are complicated, multi-faceted events. Because of that, multiple broadcasts are possible from the same event. While we spend time highlighting team members, coaches, mentors, staff and sponsors, [url=https://robovisionod.com]RoboVisionOD[/url] and [url=http://theroboshow.net]The RoboShow[/url] focus more on the matches themselves. Dan Swando spoke with us about the net work and program and how they work in the community. RoboVisionOD maintains a focus on broadcasting and publishing individual matches through YouTube, while The RoboShow features SportsCenter-style coverage of the elimination rounds of competition. These platforms allow people outside of Orlando to feel like they are at the competition. This is great for kids whose friends and family live out of town, as well as teams that are competing later in the season at another competition to get an idea of what other teams are working on. Both of these services are offered, just like [FIRST] events in person, for free online. [FLOrlando2017Sponsor]

FIRST Looks

FIRST, Central Florida @ Orlando Regional 2017

2017-04-02

The team at PLuGHiTz Live is very proud of [FIRSTLooks]. Since its inception, even before its name, we have worked hard to bring awareness to the [FIRST] brand. This series was inspired by one person, Terri Willingham, Regional Director for [FIRST] in Central Florida. She has been our representative at [FIRST] for years and, more importantly, a great friend. [FIRST] STEAMWORKS is her last season with the organization and we will definitely miss her. We do, however, look forward to working with her on her new project, of bringing a robotics center to the Tampa Bay area. She and the Eureka! Factory are currently working with a few local organizations on finding a location for a permanent [FRC] field, two [FTC] fields and [FLL] setups as well. This will also help to bring brand recognition and student participation within the Tampa Bay market. [FLOrlando2017Sponsor]

FIRST Looks

The People of Manufacturing @ Orlando Regional 2017

2017-04-02

Not everyone at a [FIRST] competition is involved with a team. Some come to see how they, or their companies, can get involved with the organization. Some want to be sponsors, some want to be mentors and some see their companies as the next step after [FIRST]. Greg Serio, who founded The People of Manufacturing, sees himself in a couple of these roles. His organization focuses on adult education in the manufacturing space, including matching apprentices with professionals in their field of interest. Greg discusses how [FIRST] students, after graduating, could find themselves additional on-the-job training in manufacturing and fabrication through this company. He also talks about his initial impressions of the event and his interests for the future. [FLOrlando2017Sponsor]

FIRST Looks

FIRST Headquarters @ Orlando Regional 2017

2017-04-02

We've gotten a lot of interesting viewpoints about competitions over the years. [FRC], [FTC] and [FLL] team members, coaches and sponsors, volunteers, Affiliate Partners, Regional Directors and organizers, but we have never seen all the way behind the curtain: a view from Headquarters. We had the opportunity to speak with Gabrielle Golden, Manager of Field Operations for [FIRST]. She travels each weekend to various events to see how they are run and collects tips and tricks for other events. She tries to appear at new events, as well as events celebrating anniversaries, and can be at 2 different events in the same weekend. She talked about HQ's focus on Alumni and building loyalty after graduation, with a focus on what Barry Bohnsack has done in Florida. She also talked about our mutual goal of increasing [FIRST]'s brand awareness. [FLOrlando2017Sponsor]
