For those of you who have not seen this before, this is a pretty interesting WiFi router.
The idea of being about to upload/download without having your computer on, for some, is probably a very appealing thing! If it performs as well as they say it does, then its a great buy for just 49.95 €!
Here are some of the highlighted features:
Open wireless networks can be risky, but wireless networks that are suppose to be secure, are dangerous.
There’s nothing worse than false security. You may be thinking, “I have a password on my router, isn’t that enough?”
Maybe is not the answer you should be looking for. “Maybe” is fine when you’re asking about going out for dinner, but “maybe” is not good when referring to whether you know where your keys are.
So, think of all the wireless networks you are responsible for, and make sure you know where the keys are!
Wifi, for sure!
This was a sign at the Drive Conference that’s happening this week.
Smartphone’s are making a splash on Wi-Fi networks, and it’s going to change how we think about wireless access.
Take this, for example:
Westmont College, a liberal arts college campus in Santa Barbara, Calif., showed in a study that nearly 3137 distinct clients connected to the Meraki wireless network in February 2011, and about 10.12 terabytes of data were transferred.
A year ago, the data transferred was about 5.06 TB and a total of 2458 distinct clients used the network in the month. Why? Because there was a sharp increase in the number of iPhones, iPod touches and yes, there were a few iPads too.
Color me impressed. Nice job. I hope he didn’t get in too much trouble.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo in Japan have designed a new paint that can absorb frequencies as high as 100GHz.
That’s the question that Ben Sinclair is taking a look at with his new eBook [download here].
Any thoughts? Is Ben right?
China is toying with the idea of converting public telephone booths into Wi-Fi hotspots.
The smartphone boom in China has left behind phone booth use in its wake, with most phone booths only being used once per day.
This turns into an economic loss, since these phone booths are regularly maintained. Converting these to Wi-Fit hotspots will help bolster the current patchy and slow 3G network, boosting user experience and creating more headroom for new users.
