Those USB sockets on your computer are called USB-A. Would it be useful to have a USB-A socket on your smart phone or tablet? You can do that with an On The Go (OTG) cable. One end plugs into the portable device, and the other provides a socket for connecting and using USB peripheral devices such as a keyboard. Your device will need to use an operating system version that includes a USB host capability. It turns out that iOS 12.x and Android 8.x include that capability. This presentation will demonstrate the many USB peripheral devices that the presenter has tested with OTG cables for his Android phone, Android tablet, and iPhone, and what he has learned during the tests. Hint: not all OTG cables are created equal."
John Krout is a former president of the Washington Area Computer User Group (WAC), one of two groups that merged to become the Potomac Area Technology and Computer Society (PATACS). He has been writing about personal computer uses since he joined WAC in the early 1980s. He is a frequent contributor to PATACS Posts, and occasionally provides presentations on tech issues at PATACS meetings. He lives in Arlington VA and is a writer for the Thales Group, a major maker of automated fingerprint identification hardware, supporting the use of that hardware in the computer system of a major federal government agency.
|This 'Learn in 30' presentation will be a short run-through of info and lessons learned gained by Mike Pafford and his wife Kali Collins, as they drove her Tesla Mod 3 Basic from their home in Maryland across the U.S. to their daughter's home in Central California, then back home again. Mike's presentation will emphasize the 'Computer-Assisted' aspects of the car and the trip. Mike Pafford is a long-time PATACS member who can't resist new toys (especially this time of year). He has a BS in Business and Management he completed while stationed around the world in the U.S. Air Force, and an MS in Information Systems he got as a Navy Officer from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Mike retired from the Navy in 1993, retired again in June 2016 from the Engineering staff at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), then retired one last time in December 2018 from the Systems Engineering faculty at JHU. He continues to offer educational workshops on Initial Project Planning (IPP) for engineering projects.|
