Comparing Apple iPad to other tablets brand.

Here's a short comparison guide I've got from different tech websites. 

Comparing Apple iPad to other brands such as BlackBerry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Dell Streak, and HP Slate.

I don't know about you, but here the basic technical specification I look for a device e.g. Processor, RAM, and Apps. I need at least 16GB internal storage for saving documents, few games, music, and video. I am using cloud storage for emails, pictures, and video.

Everyone knows Apple 100,000+ advantage in apps.

Tablets Comparison | Comments:

Gizmodo – The Apple iPad three major advantages e.g. iOS, App Store, and a huge start. It’s going to take more than a pair of HD cameras to overcome that.
Engadget – the BlackBerry Playbook is promising so far but our known unknowns e.g. price, app support and availability still in the air.
Blackberry blog – demonstrate three things: speed of the PlayBook browser, it supports Adobe Flash content, and open web standard like HTML5.
Blackberry – Out of the box compatibility with BES, seamless pairing for a secure window into your blackberry smartphone

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
