    Fast.com: Check Your Internet Speed With Netflix-Powered Site

    I don’t have any hard stats in front of me at the moment, but if I had to guess I would say that at least 80 percent of people who are worried about their internet speed feel that way due to Netflix (or some other less polite video streaming service). So the fact that Netflix […]

    New Light-Based “Li-Fi” is 100 Times Faster Than WiFi

    The future, especially in these troubled times, can be a scary place. Visions of overpopulation and natural disasters fight for room with images of nuclear annihilation and World War III.
