2 Apple discontinues its AirPort WiFi routers

The decision is bittersweet for fans, regardless of what Apple does next. Its routers aren't as vital as they used to be, and they haven't been price-competitive for a while (the same $199 can easily buy a modem-and-router combo with faster wireless). At the same time, it's sad to see Apple bow out of a market it helped create. Many users bought AirPorts precisely for their tight integration with the Apple ecosystem (including a design that doesn't look like an alien spaceship ), and that option is going away.

What If You Could Take Your Kid To Work Every Day?

Enter the enlightened coworking space that offers childcare, a category that is on the rise and in demand. At these shared offices, it’s “take your daughters and sons to work” all day, every day. The challenge is making the economics work—childcare, as every parent knows, is wildly expensive. And any economic advantages associated with bundling desk space and childcare are minimal, at best.

Avengers: Infinity War Review - IGN

There’s so much going on in this movie, and perhaps some viewers will walk away from the film frustrated by the cliffhanger. But Infinity War is more The Empire Strikes Back than The Matrix Reloaded in that regard, culminating in a beautifully brilliant, if traumatic, manner. The entire MCU saga could end here and it would be a satisfying, if not necessarily happy, finale. But the film also sets up next year’s Avengers 4 (which was once known as “Infinity War: Part 2”) in such a way that will have audiences pondering the events of Infinity War until then.

Is Wakanda Prepared for Thanos in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR? | Nerdist

“Wakanda is very strong in its tradition and its open to growing and evolving and progressing, but it also has to hold onto its roots at the same time,” Boseman said of Wakanda’s changing politics. “There’s a balance there. Whether or not they’re going to let in refugees, of course that’s insinuated based on the argument between him and Nakia. But it’s going to be on its own terms, and everything it does with the rest of the world is going to be on its own terms because they are a superpower and they have the right to do it however they want to.”

3 reasons why you should give Debian a try

The third reason: Stability, take two. Debian is a mixed rolling release distribution, which means it releases when no Release-Critical bugs remain. Because of this, Debian does not release when there are deal breaking bugs to be found. Not one. Although this means a strict release schedule is nowhere to be found, it does ensure that every release is rock solid. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more stable distribution of Linux. Period. So what are you waiting for? Give Debian a try. You won't look back.

Even after iPhone X, Samsung’s OLED business is seeing 'slow demand'

More supply and the thirst for growth on Samsung’s part may lead to a drop in prices – something the iPhone X desperately needed to not just appeal to the mass market, but to sell to them, too. Though Apple will likely be feeding Samsung more money that it would like to for its OLED displays, releasing a cheaper iPhone with OLED tech could reverse Apple’s fortune by putting equal, if not greater, pressure on Samsung’s own devices.

E-waste recycler gets prison time, $50K fine for selling free Windows software copies

Microsoft has issued a statement to various members of the press regarding the company's cooperation with Federal prosecutors in Lundgren's case, reading in part that "Unlike most e-recyclers, Mr. Lundgren sought out counterfeit software which he disguised as legitimate and sold to other refurbishers," which is at least partially counterfactual, adding "This counterfeit software exposes people who purchase recycled PCs to malware and other forms of cybercrime, which puts their security at risk and ultimately hurts the market for recycled products." This is a very peculiar statement to make, as the report in the Washington Post notes, this issue was never raised in Lundgren's trial.

It won't use any less RAM or become any more suited for modern state of media management, but at least it's there. Now, how about Google Chrome?

Being slowed in these efforts could weaken Amazon's stock, slow its growth and potentially help a competitor outpace the company.
