Apple TV has dropped to fourth place in the streaming-media market. Roku, Chromecast and Apple Fire are outselling Apple TV this year. Rumor has it that Apple will be releasing a new Apple TV in the fall. Apple is trying to regain some of the loss market share. Part of the reason for the loss of sales is neglect from Apple. Apple TV hasn’t had a major upgrade in four years. The announcement in a few weeks can’t come soon enough.
Google is in partnership with TP-Link to release a new router called OnHub.
Here are some of it’s features.
Despite the unassuming look, there are 13 antennas inside the OnHub, with the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands getting six each, plus a congestion-sensing antenna to make a baker’s dozen. They’re arranged in a circular pattern to ensure reliable coverage throughout your home. OnHub is an 802.11ac router powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of DDR3L memory. It also has 4GB of eMMC flash and 8MB of NOR flash, a USB 3.0 port, built-in 3W speaker, WPA2-PSK security, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.15.4 conformance. It supports speeds of up 1,900Mbps.
