Considering of going WIFI 802.11n (draft)? Take a look at the Netgear WNR854T. It supports 802.11(b/g/n), claims peak 300 mbps (but a review tells us differently). The back side has a four-port gigabit Ethernet switch as well.
I have been telling myself to hold off at home, and I probably still will, for now. But if I had to have a 802.11 N-draft, this would be what I compared everything else in the marketplace up against.
Here I am having to talk about myself again — thanks Martin. When I saw your post, I didn’t think I could find five things. But here it goes…
Today a friend asked me if I was going to upgrade phones anytime soon. Honestly, I’m pretty content with my Sony Ericsson 710a minus a few issues (e.g. sync it up via Bluetooth on Linux).
My buddy was referring to the new BlackJack that I was able to check out just before the holidays. Is it nice? You bet! But tonight Jeremy pointed out the new iPhone released by Apple today at CES.
I am slightly leaning towards the iPhone. I need to get my hands on one and check it out for myself. The iPhone doesn’t appear to have GPS? Not that I need GPS on my phone, but that would be very convenient!
DNS Service Discovery (DNS-SD) is already here, maybe you haven’t heard of it? Apple has their implementation out named Bonjour.
Apple is in one corner with DNS-SD, while Microsoft has their own Universal Plug and Play (UPnP). They both share a few similarities. Microsoft has already began laying other protocols on uPNP like SSDP.
Wondering what in the heck I’m talking about? Take a look at Zeroconf (zero configuration).
Happy New Year to family and friends!
It has been over a week that I have been off work, and I felt like I have accomplished more than I have all year long!
I celebrated one of the most mysterious days in a young child’s mind, Christmas, with both children. They were in awe, and I was rubbing my eyes with one hand and my little girl was holding the two fingers of my other hand gently guiding me down the stairs.
