Networking hardware producer, TrendNet, is now shipping its new Extreme Performance AC1900 (TEW-818DRU) wireless router. Powered by a 1GHz processor, high-power radio amplifiers for extended wireless coverage, and Gigabit Wireless AC networking speeds, the unit is designed to optimize wireless connections within the home. The TEW-818DRU is pre-encrypted, to help with mitigating the threat of hacking based on using unchanged default login credentials. The unit is priced at $260, and is available from retailers now.
Network vendor Trendnet today announced from the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, the AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router model TEW-818DRU. The unit is based on a 1 GHz processor, high-power radio amplifiers for extended wireless coverage, and Gigabit Wireless 802.11ac networking speeds. The TEW-818DRU is designed to provide the best possible wireless experience in a connected home or small office environment.
TrendNet has announced the release of its newest Dual Wireless N band routers, the TEW-812DRU. The successor of the AC1750, the latest router offers an upgraded USB 3.0 port, supporting up to 5Gbps speeds and preventing bottleneck transfer speeds from the client. Pre-encrypted, the TEW-812DRU's unique default passwords eliminate the opportunity for hackers to access the device with a default login. The TEW-812DRU offers up to 1.3 Gbps Wireless AC band, and 450 Mbps per second Wireless N band, with a signal range of 50 feet. Priced at $230, the TEW-812DRU will ship later this quarter.
Today Jackery -- a provider of rechargeable battery products for mobile devices -- announced the launch of their latest product, the Jackery Giant+. An upgraded release of the Giant, which is a battery which offers up to 220 hours of charging time for electronic devices, the Giant+ features up to 260 hours extra operational time for one's electronic device. Easily portable, the battery weighs 10.4 ounces and measures 4.3 x 3.1 x 0.8 inches. The Giant+ can charge two devices simultaneously, and retain a charge for up to six months in standby mode. Alongside the rest of the Jackery lineup, the Jackery Giant+ is available through Amazon, and is priced at $50.
Networking hardware vendor TrendNet today announced the availability of the dual-bay TN-200 NAS Media Server Enclosure, aimed at being a digital media and file storage hub for the home or small office. The TN-200 accepts two 3.5-inch user-supplied SATA hard drives for a total potential storage capacity of up to 8TB (terabytes).
Trendnet on Friday made two key pre-CES unveilings, including two wireless products based on the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. Trendnet's first devices include the TEW-811DR AC router and Dual Band Media Bridge, the TEW-800MB. At their best, they can reach 802.11ac's peak transfer speed of 1.3Gbps, roughly three times faster than 802.11n.
TrendNET had the distinction late Monday of putting out the first wireless-only access point to top 450Mbps. The TEW-690AP is a simplified version of the TEW-691GR we reviewed and is intended for those who want the 50 percent boost in 802.11n speeds but either don't need wired connections or who need a wireless repeater on a local network. A lone gigabit Ethernet port helps it get online either direct from the source or to add wireless to a wired network.
TRENDnet on Thursday launched the TEW-640MB 300Mbps Wireless N Media Bridge. The device will connect networked media center devices wirelessly and provide fast transfer speeds. The conduit is targeted at Ethernet-ready gaming consoles, networked TVs, receivers, DVRs and networked media hubs like the Apple TV.
TrendNET let us explore what it calls the world's first 450Mbps router. At up to 50 percent faster, it may have tremendous appeal for those who transfer large amounts of data between computers on their own network. The device did provide solid performance, but we'll find out in our TEW-691GR review if everything else is in line.
TRENDnet has launched its TEW-691GR Wireless N Gigabit router on Tuesday. The product is said to be the first in the industry with a 450Mbps theoretical throughput. Each of the three antennas has three spatial streams and they operate over the 2.4GHz spectrum.

Apple rolls out Arabic version of Apple.com
Apple has rolled out a new version of its Apple.com website for Arabic language users in the United Arab Emirates. The site utilizes a right-to-left reading format where it has been updated, although the upgrade is still in progress with a number of page links still in the original English language left-to-right format. Of particular note is that the site debuts an all-new custom Arabic font created by the Tarek Atrissi Design agency, giving it a highly contemporary look and feel. The new support for Arabic on its host website follows the introduction of full support for right-to-left languages in iOS 9, and the addition of Arabic support to Siri late last year. http://apple.co/20JHGIM
Adobe previews Photoshop content-aware crop
Adobe has previewed a new 'content-aware crop' feature from the next version of its Photoshop CC. The new feature is similar to its 'content-aware fill' from the current version of Photoshop CC, and potentially saves users time when cropping photos in a way that might otherwise leave blank white space in the frame. Adobe's 'content-aware' tech automatically assesses the blank space and seamlessly fills the blank space with the nearest related content in the space when a photo is expanded or rotated without the need to manually clone that part of the image. The feature allows users to move a horizon by adding more sky or ground, change the aspect ratio by adding content around the edges of the image and fill in the corners of an image when rotated during a crop. Adobe says the feature is coming soon and will be automatically available to Creative Cloud subscribers. http://adobe.ly/20JDFEu
