Intel Hopes to Encourage a More Stylish Approach to the “SmartWatch”



For the last decade or so, as we have watched the growth of mobile computing, manufacturers have attempted to produce the “smartwatch” which will take the mainstream media by storm. The concept makes perfect sense; most people already use their phone as a watch and a computer, so why not use a watch for all of these functions, while looking stylish? A phone/computer device in watch form allows the user to “wear” the device, rather than carrying it around.

Although this seems like a rather recent concept, the first watch that allowed for data entry and storage was “The Data 2000,” which gained its namesake from the number of characters it was capable of storing. The Data 2000 was released all the way back in 1983. In more recent years, companies including Fossil and Microsoft have attempted to seize the spotlight with their own versions of the SmartWatch. However, there was always something missing. Modern technology is becoming almost as much about style as functionality, and previous SmartWatches were consistently reviewed as clunky and out of place.

Intel’s new miniature 3G modem is small enough to allow the designers and manufacturers this kind of stylistic flexibility. The 3G modem, called the XMM 6255 is about 0.47 square inches in size, but is said to encompass all of the functionality of a traditional 3G modem. If this is a concept that interests you, Wikipedia has an up-to-date list of SmartWatches that are currently in development. It will be interesting to see if the XMM 6255 spawns a new line of similar projects.

As a final thought, remember that as computer technology becomes smaller and smaller, so do the chances of being able to catch students that are cheating on their exams.

New Pepwave AP One AC Mini

Pepwave already has an impressive line of Access Points (AP), featuring multiple SSIDs from a single device, captive portal, bandwidth limiting, WDS, and much more. Keeping up to date with the bleeding edge of technology, Pepwave has just revealed its newest AP, and it doesn't dissapoint.



The AP One AC Mini is a compact, yet very powerful device. This 2x2 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n AP supports SIMULTANEOUS dual-band WiFi. This means you have both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz WiFi from a single device giving you complete flexibility in which devices you are using on your network. Older devices that may not support 5Ghz, or the more powerufl 5Ghz wireless AC standard, will still be able to connect to the standard 2.4Ghz WiFi network. Previously Pepwave APs only supported 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz separately, so to get the maximum benefit of your devies you would have to run two APs.

In terms of power, the AP One AC Mini has a WiFi transmit power of 24dBm on 2.4Ghz and 21dBm on 5Ghz. What does that translate to for real world performance? About 800' of WiFi coverage in all directions! Though this new AP is compact, it is not lacking in power. And it isn't just a long range AP either. It doesn't do any good to cover that much area if you can only support a small number of users. The AP One AC Mini will run a maximum of 60 concurrent users! Now you can have your coverage, and use it too.

Talking about all this 5Ghz and wirless AC seems great, but what does it actually mean? We'll for one, 5Ghz WiFi is less prone to interference from other networks. Say you are installing this AP in a busy office complex or apartment building with a number of other wireless networks. Typical WiFi runs at 2.4Ghz and you'll get a lot of interference from it. That interference translates into reduced WiFi range and speeds, and poor performance from your network. 5Ghz doesn't have this issue and won't be bothered by other WiFi networks. Wireless AC is the new standard for wireless deviecs. As WiFi has evolved over the years, new specs have been released from wirelss a/b/g/n, each providing new benefits like more speed or coverage. AC is the next progression running multiple antennas for greater throughput.

How fast is this AP One AC Mini?  Ready? 1200Mbps while connected with an AC compatible device! Wireless N APs from Pepwave and many other manufacturers could only run at 300Mbps, a few hitting 600Mbps. With this type of throughput you'll be able to have more connected users (up to 60) without one or two devices slowing down the whole network with thier higher usage. Businesses that transfer large files over the LAN normally rely on wired ethernet since it has been traditionally much faster than WiFi, but running cables all over the office can be a burden, expensive, and isn't always pleasing to the eye. With an AC device connected to the AP One AC Mini, large file transferes over WiFi are a breeze. Home owners can take full advantage here as well, with streaming media becoming more common in every home, sending a HD video from PC or phone to a TV will no longer be a strain on your network, and higher definition with less compression is possible!

To round everything out, Peplinks impressive InControl2 cloud management platform now supports thier line of APs. This means you can remotely manage all your APs anywhere in the world from a single login. You can push configuration updates via the cloud, update SSIDs, flash firmware, and monitor usage in real time with a quick glance over your entire network.

The AP One AC Mini is now available at 3Gstore . For more information visit the link below!

Recall Issued for HP and Compaq Laptops

A WARNING to those who may have purchased any HP or Compaq laptop between September 2010 and June 2012: You may have a faulty power cord! This fault is potentially capable of causing skin burns or fires, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. It has resulted in a recall by Hewlett-Packard of approximately six million power leads.

The power lead (pictured below) is the part of the AC Adapter that extends from the power brick to the wall outlet. The recall specifically targets the LS-15 AC power cord, which was distributed globally with HP and Compaq notebooks, mini-notebooks, and certain AC adapter-powered accessories like docking stations. To check yours, look for the “LS-15″ mark branded into the cord itself.




So far, HP indicates that they’ve received “29 separate reports of power cords overheating and melting or charring resulting in two claims of minor burns and 13 claims of minor property damage.” According to the company, this affects 5.5 million power cords in the US, and 446,000 in Canada. They’re urging customers to stop using the laptop and unplug the power cord immediately, and just use them off the battery power for the time being.

If this has affected you, OR you’re unsure, HP is offering a free replacement. Whether you’re positive or not, you can contact them 1 of 2 ways: Go to: , navigate to the bottom of the page and click “Recalls” followed by “Power Cord Recall,” -OR- call their customer service line at (877) 219-6676 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT.

Verizon Says VoLTE is On Its Way!

Verizon Wireless recently announced that it would be launching the much talked about VoLTE (Voice-over-LTE) service in the coming weeks. This means customers will soon experience clearer phone calls and even a FaceTime/Skype-like video chat service.

VoLTE is like HD voice service, so it’s like comparing a vinyl record to an MP3. Even the video service has evolved a bit - you’ll be able to make or accept video calls right from the phone section, no having to open a separate app to do so. Even better yet, Verizon doesn’t plan on charging anything extra for these services - your device just has to be capable of supporting it. While video chats will count towards your data usage, HD phone calls will still count as regular calls, just as they do now over the CDMA network.

Until VoLTE, Verizon and other cellular carriers have used circuit-switched networks to transmit voice calls over and customers use the newer IP-based 4G LTE network to access the Internet and other data services. VoLTE service enables wireless operators to use the data network to transmit voice services in the same way they transmit data. In doing so, they are able to offer high quality voice calls, and overall, a more efficient operation because once the old spectrum is freed up, it allows the companies to use it to deploy more high-speed data services.

Naturally, there are some limitations. Both services will only work when calls are placed between two Verizon customers - as long as each one has a VoLTE-capable phone, AND they are within Verizon's LTE coverage area. Users who do have VoLTE capable devices will also have the option to turn this feature ON or OFF. You would think all users would want to try the service if possible, but because it’s so new and may be prone to issues, Verizon wants to give customers the choice.

Unfortunately, no actual date has been released for the launch of the service, nor the devices that will initially support it - BUT, a couple representatives from Verizon did demonstrate the services on an LG G2.

With this update, it’s no surprise that AT&T and T-Mobile have already announced their own VoLTE services. Both Verizon and T-Mobile are planning nationwide launches, but AT&T's service will only be available in a few select markets.

Peplink High Availability Mode



Peplink routers have an impressive track record for long up time and reliability. Did you know that certain routers from Peplink offer a High Availability (HA) mode as well? HA mode is built on VRRP, or Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol. This is essentially hardware failover. You run two identical Peplink routers where you would normally install just one. In the event of a power outage or catastrophic failure, the second router will take over the responsibility of running your network and keeping your business online.


The diagram above shows a basic HA configuration. The internet connection comes into a switch, which is then split between the first WAN port on each router. The LAN side is then separated into another switch, where the VRRP packets are handed off. If the Slave router detects the Master router is not functioning, it wil take over the job of running the network until it is replaced or comes back online.

We have created a video below demonstrating a HA setup, and showing a Master to Slave handoff taking place.

High Availability mode is available on select Peplink routers at no additonal charge. Keep your business online no matter the situation with a pair of Peplink routers and HA mode.

Sprint, It’s a new day for unlimited data


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), August 21, 2014 - It's a new day for unlimited data in the wireless industry as Sprint (NYSE: S) announces the best unlimited wireless plan available from a national carrier with the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan. This plan provides consumers unlimited talk, text and data while on America’s Newest Network for just $60 per month, a $20 savings compared to T-Mobile's $80 per month unlimited plan. Simple, easy, affordable – the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan is available to both new and existing Sprint customers starting tomorrow, August 22. To qualify for the plan, customers must purchase their device through Sprint Easy Pay, pay full retail price or bring their own compatible device.

Whether communicating via email or text, socializing via picture-sharing or tweeting, or navigating with GPS, consumers rely on their smartphones for all of their daily needs. Last year U.S. wireless consumers devoured 3.23 trillion MB of data, according to CTIA’s annual survey1, which equates to watching more than 153 billion five minute cat videos on YouTube, or streaming more than 53.8 billion hours of music on Spotify. Meanwhile, millions of American consumers restrict their usage, fearful of data limits with overage charges. With the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, consumers no longer have to worry about high bills based on how much data they are using. Enjoying daily life with the unlimited support of a smartphone has never been so easy.

“People know Sprint for Unlimited,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “We have long been the leader in offering customers unlimited data and that leadership continues today with our new $60 unlimited plan. Unlimited talk, text and data for $60 is the best unlimited postpaid plan available. And, we’ve listened to our loyal customers; we’re making the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan available to both new and existing customers.”

Sprint’s new everyday price of $60 a month for unlimited saves customers $480 over two years against T-Mobile’s $80 everyday pricing. And, customers can save $120 over two years versus T-Mobile’s promotional price…and they don’t have to jump through T-Mobile’s hoops and recruit their friends.

Just days ago, Sprint declared a new day for data and announced the Sprint Family Share Pack – a new shared-data plan that can give customers double the high-speed data at a lower price than AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Whether consumers prefer to share or have unlimited data, with Sprint, they can find just the plan they need to get the most out of their smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices.

“With the new Sprint Family Share pack and now the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, Sprint is giving consumers what they want: choice, simplicity and value,” Claure said.

The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan also is an ideal fit for small businesses, enabling their employees to be more productive in more places and providing the ability to stay on top of what matters most.
