D-Link launches new routers, kit to make home networks faster, smarter

Long gone are the days when a household had one lone computer connected to the Internet. Today a single home would have at least 3 smartphones, a tablet, and a laptop. Most have even more. That complicates home networking needs well beyond the capabilities of simple routers.

Firefox OS will live on in tablets, keyboards, routers

Firefox OS is dead. Long live Firefox OS! Or something to that extent. Mozilla might have pulled the plug on a Firefox OS smartphone, but it technically hasn't killed the platform yet.

But if you are one of the few to get Google's and TP-LINK's new cylindrical OnHub router, then that might soon become a way of life.

Google OnHub has Chrome OS inside

Google OnHub has Chrome OS inside

A group of developers opens up the Google OnHub smart router's software to find that it runs Chrome OS. That means the device is a Chromebook - or a Chrome... Hub... as it were. While it doesn't mean you're going to be connecting the machine to a display and using it as a Chromebox any time soon, it does mean that there's far more potential for this OnHub device than Google is letting on initially. This all points to smart home control.
