Wi-Fi Priority is a small app that does one particular thing: it lets you decide which Wi-Fi networks your iOS device will join.

Suit seemingly compares Cablevision's public Wi-Fi with private routers

Cablevision Systems Corporation has filed a lawsuit in federal court for the Eastern District of New York against Verizon Communications, seeking an end to what it calls "its false, misleading and deceptive advertising claims about Wi-Fi service" related to Verizon's new 802.11ac Wi-Fi router, which has yet to see wide rollout.

The iRemocon is an Internet-connected device, intended to allow the user to control multiple home electronics from an app on their smartphone.

Chen sees threat to net neutrality from app developers more than carriers

Blackberry CEO John Chen appears to be turning to the US government for help in broadening the app ecosystem for the struggling Canadian handset, as well as railing against a US-centric view of net neutrality and possible Title II regulation at the same time. In a blog post taken in part from a letter the CEO wrote to members of Congress, Chen defines not only what he sees as an ideal path for net neutrality, but also complaining about a "two-tiered wireless broadband ecosystem" where content providers like Apple and Netflix are free to not develop for all wireless platforms.

Review: Thecus N2310 NAS

01/22, 12:03am

Affordable, two-bay setup offers a wealth of features without overwhelming users

For every computer user, there comes a point of critical mass in data storage. When it hits, external hard drives, USB sticks and DVD burning may no longer be feasible for the constant back-and-forth of data transfers that are a part of a daily routine. When it comes to that, what are users left to do? The next jump is to network-attached storage (NAS). But what options are there for computer users that don't know much about setup, but don't want to be stuck with a non-upgradeable solution? Don't worry, because Thecus has an easy-to-use, frustration-free option with the N2310. Find out how it stacks up in our review.

Apple sues Ericsson over demands for LTE royalties

01/14, 9:41am

Insists patents are non-essential and not infringed

Apple has filed a lawsuit against Sweden's Ericsson, claiming that the latter is asking for excessive royalties for certain LTE patents, Reuters reports. The iPhone maker says that it hasn't infringed on any of the patents, and hence doesn't owe royalties for them - but the company says, nevertheless, that the patents aren't essential to cellular standards. Further, Apple claims that any royalties should be based on the value of the chip that includes the technology, rather than as a percentage of a device's total cost. If the court should find that the Ericsson patents are, in fact, standards-essential and have been infringed, Apple asks that the court assign a reasonable FRAND royalty rate.

HomeKit requires Apple TV hub for remote Siri commands

01/12, 10:18am

Direct app controls unrestricted

People wanting to control HomeKit-enabled devices remotely through Apple's Siri must have an Apple TV at home to serve as a hub, according to Verge sources, including two launch partners and a person said to be "close to HomeKit's development." Siri controls will always work while an iPhone or iPad is on the same network as a HomeKit device, but until now it wasn't fully clear how remote operation might work. The Apple TV must also be a third-generation model running at least v7.0 firmware or newer. Notably, remote operation without Siri -- using the vendor app for a HomeKit product directly - cuts out the Apple TV requirement.
