I’ve been using my Linksys E4200 router for about eight years and was quite happy with its very robust operation. However, any hardware is destined to get outdated over time.
Firstly, as soon as we’d moved from our former apartment into a three-storey house it became evident the Wi-Fi coverage was suboptimal. In some remote corner you’d sometimes hardly get any connection at all. Secondly, it didn’t support modern IEEE standards such as 802.11ac, which was also hurting the bandwidth.
Thus eventually I’ve decided to go for a mesh Wi-Fi system.
TGIF — time for wine (and a review)!
I’ve been using the electric corkscrew Xiaomi Mijia for more than a year now and I’m pretty happy with it.
It features a rechargeable battery, which means there’s one more gadget to charge. However, I dare say you won’t need to charge it frequently unless you drink wine a crate a day.
Recently I’ve come across a couple of USB cables of Chinese origin (what else).
Cables that are a real innovation in my view. Carrying just regular USB Type A or Micro USB connectors, they can be plugged in both ways!
There was a moment when my smoke detector, which is as old as the house it’s in, had to be replaced.
And I did that with pleasure, because at that moment it started chirping regularly in a very annoying way. First once every five minutes, a bit later once a minute. And that would not be a big issue had this not been happening at 5:00 AM. And, of course, the chirping was so loud that no human being could ignore it. Just like in that scene from “Friends”.
This TV can be either attached to the stand or mounted on the wall.
The first option seems arguable to me: because of its huge size (and the related windage), the panel will sway at any breath. And it won’t survive its falling down (neither will its owner).
