When travelling abroad, two crucial things that geeks need the most is internet connectivity and sufficient power on their smartphone. If you’re a frequent traveller, you could solve both concerns with Nommi, a portable MiFi that also doubles up as a power bank. On top of that, it can even charge your phone without using any cables at all.
If you’re a TM UniFi subscriber with the router, as shown above, the much-awaited firmware update has finally arrived.
UPDATE: TIME has issued a security alert for its D-Link DIR-850L Router.
UPDATE 2: D-Link has released its latest firmware for the DIR-850L router.

In typical Xiaomi fashion, they have just announced another
cheap value for money device that’s big on features. Alongside the Redmi Note 2, they have revealed its Mi WiFi nano, a tiny little wireless router that fits on your palm.
Measuring just 91mm x 95.2mm, it is roughly the size of a coaster and it weighs just 100 grams. Best of all, it is priced at only 79 CNY, which is less than RM50.
Xiaomi has just announced a new wireless router that’s simply called the Mi WiFi. While the name sounds simple, this is an epic replacement of its sexy looking Mi Wireless Router that came with 1TB of storage built-in. Design wise, it looks like a simple box with two plastic antennas but it packs a lot more than just a standard router.
You get an enterprise grade router with faster 802.11ac WiFi on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, PCB based antenna array for better reception and a whopping 6TB of storage space using surveillance standard hard drives from Seagate and Toshiba. This allows faster read speeds up to 115MB/s while wireless file transfers boast 58MB/s speeds which are twice as fast as USB 2.0. In terms of ports, it gets 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN at the back and a full sized USB port.
