I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.


Broadening The Range

The scenario is, you are using your iPad in the lounge streaming your favourite movie or on a FaceTime call with a friend, then you head to the kitchen and then all of a sudden, you are in a wifi no-spot.
What do you do?
The solution is a wireless extender or signal booster. Like other wireless technology, wireless range extenders use radio frequencies to transmit data. Your wireless router transmits data to a network-connected device, such as a laptop or network-ready printer, over radio signals. These signals have a maximum distance they can travel and if the device is far from the router, may never reach the device. Wireless range extenders sit between the router and the device to capture the signals. The captured signals are amplified and retransmitted to the network. This process allows for a greater network area without physical wiring.
Today the BT dual band wifi extender arrived and the set up was really simple, it was simply just plug it into any power socket within your existing wi-fi range and it’ll connect wirelessly with your router, giving you the improved reliability and speed of dual-band and helping to make dead spots a thing of the past.


Look No Wires

How times change, remember the days when you could only print in dots and only in one colour?
Now all that has changed and you can now print in all manner of colours, you even get the option to add a bit of extra oomph with a touch of photo cyan or magenta. Now that has all changed again and printing has gone full tech with the ability to print with no wires, they call it wireless printing. Hey you do not even need a computer to print from these days.
Of course you know that I would not leave it there. I would be finding the solution for the next leap in printing tech. Well, I have done it now as I am the proud owner of an ‘AirPrinter’.
I dare say you are wondering what is an ‘AirPrinter’?
Simply put, it is Apple’s next-generation Wi-Fi print architecture that dramatically simplifies printing by completely eliminating printer drivers and letting you print directly from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and of course your Mac.
If you were thinking that because you may not own any Apple products that you would be somewhat left out, well, Apple has changed that too as they are for evermore being the company that do not leave anyone out; you too can join the party. If you are on the same network then you too can print via ‘AirPrint’ as easy as that.
Here is that very ‘proof in the pudding’.
