1/6

WiFi Booster Meets Smart Speaker

The Networking firm NetGear Orbi voice has finally come up with something we had been dreaming about for so long, a smart speaker and wireless mesh router in the same device. This device packs a 3.5 inch front-facing woofer and one-inch tweeters on the top. It offers a tri-band WiFi network which extends up to 4500 square feet. It surely is more expensive than other smart speakers out there but it prevents you from investing in a WiFi booster and smart speaker separately. (Imagie: www.netgear.com)

18 Times Stronger

Loss of a memory card hurts, especially when you accidentally end up breaking them. Memory cards are notoriously easy to break. If only a company contributed to making them stronger…At IFA 2018, Sony introduced super strong SD cards which are 18 times stronger than a regular SD card. With no write-protection switch, these are free of unnecessary nuisances and allow you to store as much as 128 GB data.(Image: www.sony.net)
