By any chance have you found a laptop or tablet which you can use in full sun? I have tried a few different ones and also used those sun screen/shields and non work in full sun for me.

    What your looking for simply doesn't exist. I'm sure that some sun/screen shields are better then others, so just keep trying one that works best. But in the end, there is only so much that can be done.

    You will end up frustrated and with eye problem by the end of this research.
    But this is the very first step of bringing the chance in technology.
    You are the hero...!

    I had a hard time trying to figure out the reason why you are looking for between a laptop or a tablet that you can read in full sun, since most of us here will not attempt to use laptops or tablets in full sun. I agree with what fellow warrior Jade here had stated if you are in a desert or something like that since you are searching for that device that you can view in full sun. Most of us here would prefer to work and use these devices inside our room, far away from the sun so we could work better.
    I think that to really answer your question is for you to look for an area wherein you are not under the full sun so you could read what is on the screen of your laptop or tablet even when you are outdoors. There are sun screens, as what Tcalp had said, but it's difficult to really point on to a product since we don't have any idea what really is your intention on looking for that kind of device.
    I have a question by the way, what are you trying to do and use laptop or tablet in full sun?

    That is what I thought.

    There's nothing that can be perfect under the full sun.

    No laptop or tablet exist yet. Even if these devices are advertised as having the brightest screens in the market, it would still be difficult to work with them under the sun. Check the review sites to find out.

    I live in Marbella where we have about 300 days a year of sun. Best thing is to work inside to avoid the glare and skin cancer

    There is a tablet for you, it's called Adam (google it). it uses a technology called Pixel Qi (don't remember if it's written that way). You can turn light off, and use it with the sun (I believe without colors, but the quality of image is good).

    I can't say that I have ever heard of a laptop or tablet that you can read in full sun. I know that there are some anti sun glare protectors that you can put over your laptop screens but I don't know how well they work.

    I use an Acer laptop with an LED screen (not LCD) and I also have an anti-glare screen shield (can't remember where it came from).

    It's ok for working outside, although I usually try to stay in the shade. It's usable in the sun, although I can't work on it for long periods.

    Don't know why you find it so hard to understand why someone wants a tablet or laptop to work in the sun.

    One of the great advantages of laptops and tablets especially is the portability. The ability to get around and be able to attend to your important tasks witout having to be stuck in the office.

    I spend a lot of my time in Greece and it's pretty much (full) sunny here all the time. I'm sure many IMrs live in countries with extremes of sun.

    I have tried a few smartphones, notepads, tablets, netbooks of differing sizes and yet to find one that works well in the sun here.

    (In the UK generally not a problem but in places where the sun is generally more severe it's an issue)

    Even the shade is not that good for most unless you actually shade the screen heavily. Just sitting under canopy or similar means the ambient light in strong sun (reflection from ground/walls etc) is still very bright.

    So if you don't have the answer that's fine but don't knock the guy for asking the question.

    EXACTLY Tony. Glad someone gets it

    I usually work outside if it isn't too hot and enjoy going to the beach as often as possible.

    For all those who say they work at home I am surprised by the number of people in this thread that don't understand why you wouldn't like to work at the beach. Common sense to me.

    BTW I will be going to Greece for a few weeks this winter and I wanted to bring something along which I can use in the sun.

    I have seen that a company is coming out with a tablet which used E-ink, the same technology that makes reading a Nook in full sunlight very easy.

    I've used different laptops and found that in a very sunny situation
    it is always hard to read the text.
    I don't think there's any way around that limitation.

    Unfortunately I agree.

    Sort of strange how you see those videos or pics of the wealthy doing their business on a laptop out on the beach in full sunlight lol

    Actually that is why I want it. I, like many here, can work anywhere there is a 3G signal. With the cooler weather right around the corner I would really like to go to the beach and work.

    ...This is why some people get paid to work remotely... because they think, develop then test solutions....

    Any laptop will do, but specifically DELL Latitude E6430. Go to to your desktop and personalize the theme. Go to HIGH RES White. Now while you are there change your pointer to the Black Large pointer. Now go into your control panel and update the fonts to medium. Put some polarized shades on and baseball hat.
    Limit the glare with a neutral shirt... tan body.

    Lastly Crank up your Contrast...

    If you do UNIX like me just go same theme in PUTTY. Now... All you need is noise canceling jawbone for those conference calls.

    Have fun at the beach.

    Significant Changes to the Facebook Newsfeed Algorithm

    Facebooks just announced substantial changes to the news feed algorithm with changes to the types of content that will be given preference in the news feed. As has been expected for a while Facebook is tending more and more towards killing organic page traffic. Probably motivated to increase ad revenue. Also sounds particularly tailored towards taking down url only style posts.

    What to do with your Content?

    Imagine that you have just finished writing a blog or a piece that checks all the boxes. It has great value, is well designed, interactive and can be a hit with the audience. Now, you are sitting there and wondering what to do next. That is a situation which most bloggers and content writers, especially beginners, encounter on a frequent basis. Most people do not know where to go next and what to do with their content, once they are finished with everything. Well, the answer to those questions is fairly simple. When you are done writing a blog or content page and are satisfied with end product, the logical next step is distribution and publishing. The top content marketers and bloggers today, are of the opinion that while content may be king; it's the distribution which matters. Jonathan Perelman went on record to say that content is king and distribution the queen.
