bleachedsound says:

Thanks for making my Echo record a memo Flo….. sigh.

Robert Young says:

If I used four R8000’s as access points not routing in four large rooms 2000 square feet each hard wired to a very good router would this be the ultimate system or just go Ubiquiti ?

jack black says:

yea leo’s back and also phone calls on set

Rob Luce says:

When do they talk about the mesh networking? Seems like most of the video they didn’t…

Jostein Claudius says:

To Paul’s question, if you don’t want to spend thousands of bucks on a NAS, you can use your computer and set up ownCloud. And with the ownCloud app, you should be able to auto-upload your pictures. You might need to spend some time learning how to set it up, but then you will have your own private cloud solution, hence the name, ownCloud 🙂 Good luck.

I loved my old Linksys router but it couldn’t handle even 60 meg down so I got a ASUS Diamond type.,,..wonderful router.

Keep in mind that EIS does not work in low light.

Lance Zimmerman says:

On Gmail, on the web, you can use a filter to delete all if you want. All on Gmail only does one hundred at a time.

I used to like the idea of OnePlus, but their phones have been gradually getting more expensive, and they shut out OnePlus 2 users from updates after only about a year. At this point I’ll probably stick to Motorola. I’ve been very pleased with my G4 Plus, and the upcoming G5S Plus sounds promising as well.

ITPalGame says:

most people either don’t care about Uber news or have never heard about it.

Uber has finally started to put in the much-asked-for by drivers tipping option in the passenger app. Uber conditioned passengers to think they shouldn’t have to tip their drivers. Tipping your Uber driver can be the difference between a profit or not. Gas and maintenance isn’t free.

Mattias Andersson says:

Could you please review COMFAST CF-AC100 managed gateway together with COMFAST WIFI AP?

Richard Patry says:

Those tribands routers are going for $400 in Canada.
A little expensive for a router.
