TP-Link RE650 AC2600 Range Extender

We have just posted our review of the TP-Link RE650 AC2600 range extender. Unlike many range extenders that build their own separate network, the RE650 seamlessly integrates with your existing network and creates a one-node "mesh" that works very well. Take a look at our full review to see why this should be on your short list when it comes to extending your network.

Installing the RE650 is as simple as plugging it in. Setting it up is almost as easy. For basic setup, press the WPS button on your router and then on the RE650. Once it connects to the 2.4GHz band, press the WPS on your router again, and then once more on the RE650. This time it will connect to your 5GHz band and you're done. If that doesn't work for you, you can head over to either the Google Play Store or the App Store and download the Tether App.

Dual-Screen Axom M Available Now

The ZTE Axon M dual-screen foldable phone was only announced a few short weeks ago. ZTE does things properly though. Once they announce a product, they make sure it's in the hands of the consumer very soon. In fact, you can now order it from AT&T in the USA and it will ship in about a week from this posting. That's pretty awesome. If you want some hands-on in store, you'll have to wait until mid-November to see one, but if it's like any other Axon product from ZTE, it will be solid.

To recap, the ZTE Axon M features two 5.2-inch 1080p displays, a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, dual speakers with Dolby Audio, and a single 20 MP camera. The device has a full screen on the front and back, but can be folded out to extend or mirror your screen to the second display. You can purchase a device for $725 all at once, or use AT&T’s payment plan to pay $24.17 a month over 30 months.

Fun Fact: 40% of Microsoft Azure VMs Run on Linux

Microsoft is a weird company. They bail out Apple during tough times and they run the competition's OS on their machines instead of their own. That is partly what makes them awesome as well. They support other initiatives if it helps the overall customer experience. Microsoft has said they want to increase their support and use of Open Source projects - such as Linux - so this is just them keeping their word. Nicely done.

In addition to the Linux share among VMs, there is also the sixty percent share of Linux-based services on Azure and the availability of many open-source technologies for developers to use on the cloud platform. These numbers are definitely encouraging to see for open-source developers and enthusiasts, and it will be interesting to see what else the company has in store for the community in the future.

PUBG Coming to Xbox One December 12

If you're strictly a console gamer and you've been reading about the madness that is PUBG on PC (2 Million Players and growing), you may want to make sure your Xbox Live Gold subscription is paid up by December. That is when the game expands to console and at this time, it looks like it won't be available on PS4 - at all. 

What separates the pair is the development cycle. PUBG has been playable on PC since March, and as such it has a nine month (at least) lead time in terms of features. "We want the same game on both platforms, but the Xbox version is obviously lagging a little bit behind when it comes to the PC version," Greene said.

Lots of New Streaming Media Coming

November is here and if you've been binge-watching on your favorite streaming media outlet and are bemoaning "nothing to watch", there is more stuff coming this November. There is some great content coming to Amazon Prime, Netflix and HBO Now. Take a look and start planning for those cold days and wet, windy and snowy weekends.

Amazon Prime Video will add critical favorite The Big Sick to its lineup on November 24th. But the service will continue to improve its legacy movie library selection as well. Nearly all the (pre-Daniel Craig) James Bond franchise is coming to the service, and if you’re interested in holding onto that gothy, Halloween spirit just a little longer, the service will also have Bram Stoker’s Dracula available starting November 1st.

GameStop Launches Rental Service

GameStop just turned themselves into BlockBuster with their game rental service. If you have a GameStop close by - and don't want to use other services like EA Access - their latest announcement may be worth checking out. They have just launched PowerPass. You get unlimited game rentals for $60 for a 6-month go and you can swap games anytime you want at no additional cost. If you're into single-player games - or are easily discouraged from competing online, this makes a lot of sense.

PowerPass may be a good thing for the company, but that's the message between the lines: GameStop is looking for new ways to monetize its assuredly massive overstock of secondhand games. A program like this — which, at this point, has the feel of a public beta test — could help to shrink that stock while creating a new subscription-based source of income.

ZenFone 4 Arrives in North America

ASUS is not the first name you think of when it comes to mobile phones, but they have had some pretty solid success with their ZenFone line. We are now up to the fourth generation of these devices and what once started with a single model has turned into a whole family. There is something for every budget and need. The ZenFone 4 Pro is a flagship device with 6GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 835 processor and a solid display. If you need something a little more affordable, the ZenFone 4 Max is your best bet at $169.

The three phones all have dual rear cameras and run on Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. The ZenFone 4 Pro, the most high-end option of the three, costs $599 and boasts 6GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and a bigger battery capacity than the other two phones. It also has a 1920 x 1080 OLED display.

Nintendo Expects Switch Will Outsell Wii U in a Year

The Nintendo Switch is doing very well. How well? Nintendo expects that it will beat out the lifetime sales of the Wii U - and do it in less than a year. That is great news for Nintendo and it shows just how dismal sales of the Wii U actually were. All that said, Nintendo does very well with their own IP as they have the top 5 rated games in the world.

According to a Reuters report, the company is now endeavoring to meet customer demand -- it's still not easy to buy a Switch in stores. "We've boosted Switch production in order to meet strong demand from our customers as it was difficult for customers to buy the consoles at retail stores," said Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima.

Samsung Steps Up Mobile Browser Game

Samsung is taking their mobile security seriously and have upped their game when it comes to security. Not only have they stepped up their basic security on "Samsung Internet", they have also added a built-in ad-tracking blocker. This is a nice feature in some ways, but then again you won't get "targeted" ads on a website, you'll get random ads. I'm not sure which is more irritating.

The browser’s new extension blocks invisible trackers, allowing you to browse privately. You can toggle on the tracking blocker, or if you’re in Secret Mode, the blocker will already be enabled by default. The extension is powered by Disconnect, a privacy protection company, which already makes a similar ad-blocking extension for Samsung Internet.

Super Mario Odyssey is the Best Game Ever

The Nintendo Switch may not have a ton of titles, but they have been pushing some pretty high-quality titles to the digital-only platform. The latest game to hit their platform is Super Mario Odyssey and it has the highest rating of any game - ever - at least according to GameRankings.com. It's interesting to see that the top five games are all Nintendo titles. I guess that's why they are still around after the Wii U flop.
