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.

Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit
Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which -- regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall -- can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa

Twitter stickers slowly roll out to users
Twitter has introduced "stickers," allowing users to add extra graphical elements to their photos before uploading them to the micro-blogging service. A library of hundreds of accessories, props, and emoji will be available to use as stickers, which can be resized, rotated, and placed anywhere on the photograph.
