Prisons are finally getting a high-tech upgrade to whatever wherever.
The only hitch: everything comes at a cost, including emails, which require a paid virtual “stamp” to go through to recipients. Stamp pricing varies depending on the prison, but each one goes for about the same cost as a physical stamp.
The company’s various services are now offered at over 1,200 facilities in 34 states, ranging from low-security outfits to supermax prisons. In 2014, inmates sent over 14.2 million emails and 650,000 mobile payments through JPay’s systems. Over 40,000 JP4 Android tablets — the most up-to-date JPay tablet at the time — were purchased.

Forget receipt surveys or email surveys, which only collect feedback well after the customer has left your store, and consider for a moment the advantages of capturing customer sentiment in the moment. Not only are customers more likely to remember the details of their experience, but you don’t have to rely on them to head home and plug in a survey URL.
Overall, the reasons to ditch receipt and email surveys and adopt kiosk surveys are plentiful. Kiosk surveys offer a more visually pleasing experience for the customer, and survey incentives like coupons or free gifts can be prominently promoted on the main screen.
It’s time to say goodbye to ugly web survey forms, and hello to beautiful iPad surveys. Your customers will thank you for it.
Thanks to current developments from Android-x86 and Remix OS, your hybrid tablet can now run Android. How does this affect the tablet landscape?
Because of this, Microsoft inadvertently built the best Android tablet hardware, in part because there is no such thing as “Android-only Hardware”. Android-x86 and Remix are bringing the Android experience to all sorts of computers, including full tower-desktops, laptops, ultrabooks, and of course, hybrid tablets. This last point is the most interesting one, I think, because of the hardware involved. If we look at tablet hybrids, they typically pack substantially more RAM than Android tablets do, and some flavors come with very-powerful x86 processors. I personally own a Surface Pro 3 with an i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, which is more than enough for a semi-desktop experience on-the-go and the things I bought this for (work and school). But when I boot into Android, the device feels even more versatile.
