TP-Link now shipping Wireless Range Extender Kit PowerLine Edition

Networking products company TP-Link is now shipping its TL-WPA4220KIT, a wireless range extender kit which uses Powerline and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi technology. Capable of providing network coverage anywhere up to 1000 feet measured by electrical circuitry, the new wireless extender is ideal for multi-level home and large offices. The kit includes two Powerline adapters, of which one connects to the router and feeds network connection through existing electrical circuitry at 500Mbps, and the latter broadcasts that connection as a 300Mbps Wi-Fi signal while providing two fast Ethernet ports for concurrent wired connectivity. The TL-WPA4220KIT is priced at $60, and is available for purchase online.



Volvo announces new tablet-like centre console

Officially debuting at next week's Geneva Motor Show, Volvo has announced its latest "human machine interface" that incorporates a tablet-like centre console into the vehicle. Its screen is divided into tiles, featuring navigation, media and vehicle info, and a secondary features area that includes phone and climate controls. The new interface aims to reduce visual distraction, and prioritizes frequently-used controls so as to make them easy to reach. The new tablet interface will be available in Volvo's XC90 crossover SUVs this upcoming fall.
