    Next-gen Wi-Fi technologies on the way

    Life, James Hein, Published on 07/11/2018

    » The fixed line versus Wi-Fi debate continues to be a popular one. And with technologies like Wi-Gig and Wi-Fi 6 in the pipeline, the debate will only intensify. Current Wi-Fi technologies work inside the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands; they also have user-friendly version numbers now. Wi-Fi 4 came out in 2009 under the name 802.11n, Wi-Fi 5 arrived in 2014 as 802.11ac and Wi-Fi 6 is due in 2019 as 802.11.ax. In the near future, you'll see these numbers start to appear on your devices, but not every manufacturer will bother to use the new designations. Wi-Fi numbers 1-3 represent even older, now mostly unused versions.

Even the name Freddie gave the band laid it all bare.

    » 'A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic," cosmologist Carl Sagan once said. "It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles.
