Verizon Wireless Jetpack 890L 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Verizon Wireless Jetpack 890L 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Compared to the Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot we just reviewed at the beginning of May, this 890L 4G LTE model isn't all that unique. It connects to Verizon's 4G LTE network just as well as the 4620, has a similar lovely little display for you to monitor how many people are connected, your connection strength, and software updates - and you're working with the same data plan costs as well. The 4620L is made by Novatel Wireless while the 890L is made by ZTE - beyond that, what differences are there?

Have a peek at dive in!

Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot review

Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot review

There's little to be said at this point about how powerful Verizon's 4G LTE network really is - we've found no more comprehensive coverage in the country at this point in history - but how well does this newest Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot harness that power? Verizon has several mobile hotspot devices in their store right this second, this being Novatel Wireless' newest look at pushing this LTE network to your many wonderful devices. You'll be getting fabulous data speeds in a tiny package - and this device has a lovely display, as well - but what's the difference when it comes down to it between this and the rest of the hotspots currently available at Verizon?

Apple Retina iPad advertisements finally cover the United States

Apple Retina iPad advertisements finally cover the United States

You might not have noticed it if your Apple sensor is as normalized as your love for great advertising, but billboards, bus stations, and print ads across the United States have finally switched from iPad 2 to the new iPad for 2012. Have a peek back at our report on when the states were still sticking with iPad 2 advertisements to see the oddity the vast majority of the USA didn't find necessary to notice, then take a peek at a few of the new ads up this week. They've been up for a couple weeks, actually, everywhere from Minneapolis all the way down to San Francisco!

Why iPad 2 still dominates Apple advertising in 2012

Why iPad 2 still dominates Apple advertising in 2012

When the new iPad was released, we wondered how long it would be before Apple switched their billboard and bus stop advertising over to The New iPad - as it turns out, it doesn't appear that they ever will. Why is it that we're still seeing Apple displaying iPad 2 billboards across downtown Minneapolis, London, and San Francisco - aka across the United States and across the ocean to the UK? The answer is actually quite simple.

AT&T toys with premium service

AT&T toys with premium service

AT&T is rolling out a new program called AT&T Plus to select markets in the United States. The company is evaluating the service to see whether or not customers would be willing to pay extra for exclusive benefits. So far, though, the level of benefits is rather paltry. Nevertheless, it is no doubt something that could bring in additional revenue, something AT&T has been trying to do ever since losing iPhone exclusivity.

Stop crying about the iPad naming conventions

Stop crying about the iPad naming conventions

The 3rd generation iPad does not have a new name, but neither does the new MacBook Pro, the Apple TV, or the iMac - go home and cry about it. So called "experts" have been weighing in so heavily over the past 24 hours over the "mistake" made by those responsible for naming the newest iPad that you'd think they were stock owners in the company, all of this saying only one thing to your humble narrator: they're mad that they can't pigeonhole the product as easily as they could before. What I'm contending here is that not only does it make perfect sense that Apple cut out the numbering system from the newest model iPad in this generation, they should have done it right from the start.
