QuickerTek's acNano wireless transceiver provides fast wireless to PowerBooks
QuickTek, a producer of antennas and RF products for Macs, has announced the release of a 802.11ac wireless transceiver, the acNano. Its size is comparable to an average flash memory stick, and plugs into a USB port. Upon installing the supplied driver, the acNano provides older Apple PowerBooks with 802.11ac high-speed wireless networking speeds.
Users of the acNano retain all of the wireless security offered by wireless networks running 64/128-bit WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPS and IEEE802.1x encryption technology. Compatible with OS X 10.4.x or later, the QuickTek acNano is priced at $60.
Next-Numbers for iOS is now available in App Store
Vito Technology has announced the release of Next-Numbers, a new educational game for iOS that aims to challenge and improve one's attention skills. Next-Numbers is a game of speed, concentration and visual memory based on an old classic exercise of finding details in a complex field. Users tap numbers in order, one by one, as fast as possible.
Next-Numbers has two game options -- Blitz and Zen -- in the former, the game ends in either 60 seconds with the result being how many numbers can be found, and the latter an unlimited time to find all the numbers, with the result being one's time score. Available for iPhone and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, Next-Numbers is available for download on iTunes for $2.
