first_imgCES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. Here’s what to expect. Walmart TP-Link TP-Link is expanding its wireless networking offerings with a fleet of WiFi 6/802.11ax hardware in both standard and mesh wireless varieties. The Deco X10 mesh wireless system is similar to Netgear Orbi, Eero and Google WiFi. It launches in Q3 2019, and will retail for $350 for a kit that includes two mesh Wi-Fi nodes you can link together to blanket a large area with wireless coverage. That’s a typical price for a multi-unit mesh set up you’d purchase today, but when it launches this fall, the Deco X10 will support the new Wi-Fi 6 standard, among other competitive specs. I would expect plenty of additional Wi-Fi 6 mesh systems available when the Deco X10 launches in Q3 2019, so don’t preorder until we get a better sense of the field.The RE300 is TP-Link’s other mesh product. Rather than working as a standalone mesh networking device, the RE300 is an extender that will add mesh capabilities to existing TP-Link Archer C7 and Archer A7 wireless routers (pending a firmware update).Read more: Wi-Fi 6: Better, faster internet is coming this year — here’s everything you need to know  TP-Link says the RE300 is the first product in its new OneMesh line of Mesh accessories, so expect additional hardware down the line. The RE300 launches in April 2019, for a reasonable $50. archer-ax11000-1 TP-Link On the standard wireless networking front, TP-Link has four new Wi-Fi 6 routers at different but aggressive price points that indicate a hefty premium for the new wireless standard. The Archer AX11000 is a tri-band gaming router that goes on sale this month for a staggering $450. The Archer AX6000 is a dual-band router that will sell for $350 in April, and the Archer AX1800 launches in Q3 2019 for a more down-to-earth $130. An Archer AX1500 model will follow, for an unspecified price.

first_imgWest Bank settlement. Photo: AFPIsrael on Wednesday approved construction of 1,958 new settler homes in the occupied West Bank, Israeli settlement watchdog Peace Now told AFP.It was fewer than the 2,500 for which defence minister Avigdor Lieberman said last week he intended to seek approval.It was the first tranche of settlement approvals since the controversial US embassy transfer to Jerusalem on 14 May, a move that infuriated Palestinians and intensified protests on the Gaza border, with at least 61 Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces that day.Peace Now said that in Wednesday’s batch, around 700 units got final approval while the remainder passed the first approval stage in the planning process.It said that the majority were in isolated settlements outside the major “blocs” which the government will seek to retain in any future peace agreement with the Palestinians.Israel’s West Bank settlements are considered illegal under international law and are bitterly opposed by Palestinians.Peace Now said in a statement that there had been a leap in settlement-building during US President Donald Trump’s term so far, with about 14,000 approvals.That, it added, “is more than three times the amount that was approved in the year and a half before his inauguration (4,476 units).”last_img read more

first_img Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 2 min read The Army is indeed currently at work building a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit or TALOS.  The suit is meant for Special Operations Forces, and while it can’t fly, it does repel flames and ammunition. In addition to protecting soldiers, the Army said in an announcement this fall that it hopes the technology that is being developed for the suit can be used to create even better prosthetics for soldiers wounded in the line of duty. Prototypes are expected to be ready for testing in June.       Last month, Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 cult classic RoboCop was rebooted with The Killing’s Joel Kinnamen in the title role. The most recent episode of Community had Abed (Danny Pudi) highly anticipating/dreading the remake of his favorite robot vigilante movie “Kickpuncher.” Related: Entrepreneurs on the Moon? NASA Takes a Step in That Direction.And in Robert Downey Jr.’s third outing as Iron Man last summer, he defeated Guy Pearce’s revenge-driven mad scientist (but aren’t they all?) alongside his friend James Rhodes (Don Cheadle). To lend a hand, the Colonel was decked out in an uber-patriotic, government-sponsored super suit to become: War Machine.You can’t say that TALOS isn’t on trend.What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately? Let us know by emailing us at FarOutTech@entrepreneur.com or by telling us in the comments below. Coming soon to a top-secret government lab near you…Iron Man?Sort of. Last week, in a case of life imitating art — or least the demands of the domestic box office — President Obama made mention of an Army project called TALOS during remarks at a White House event announcing the development of Manufacturing Innovation Institutes in Detroit and Chicago.Related: What If EVERYTHING In Your Life Was Connected to the Internet?Obama jokingly said of the undertaking, “Basically I’m here to announce that we’re building Iron Man…This has been a secret project we’ve been working on for a long time. Not really. Maybe. It’s classified.” Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. March 5, 2014last_img read more
