T-Mobile, Verizon take shots at AT&T’s bogus 5G logo

T-Mobile, Verizon take shots at AT&T’s bogus 5G logo

Yesterday, AT&T began rolling out an update to some Android phones that replaced the "LTE" icon users typically see with a new icon that shows "5G E." The problem, of course, is that customers aren't really tapping into AT&T's 5G network - instead, they're simply getting a 4G LTE connection that has been bolstered by things like 4x4 MIMO, three-way carrier aggregation, and 256 QAM.

Puppyoo T10 Home Vacuum Review

Puppyoo T10 Home Vacuum Review

Not least of all because I've had the same pet-aimed vacuum cleaner for the past decade, and it's not as if there's a major calling out there for reviews of vacuum cleaners.

Apparently vacuums have gotten a lot more awesome since I was last in the market for a tool such as this.

It's not as though Beats was ever the biggest brand in earbuds, but still - now Apple sells their own earbuds in the same store as Beats brand audio equipment.

Moodo Review : Smart Scent Diffuser works its magic

Moodo Review : Smart Scent Diffuser works its magic

Over the last few weeks I've been using Moodo, a smart fragrance mixer that allows users to "create their own personalized ambiance." It's gone well, or as well as one might expect such a thing to go. Once I got the hang of creating scent atmospheres in my home, I realized that the device made such activities so simple, I skipped right over the whole "how do I use this device" part of the equation.
