Review: Amped Wireless ALLY Whole Home Smart Wi-Fi System

Jesse Hollington August 4, 2017

As a rule, wireless routers are a well-established product category, and there traditionally hasn’t been a lot of consumer-facing innovation in this space — advances found in the latest Wi-Fi routers each year are usually confined to the realm of technical specs such as new wireless standards, better antennas, and increased range, and few companies have ever paid a great deal of attention to the actual user experience. As a result, we were a bit intrigued by Amped Wireless’ new ALLY Wi-Fi System, which makes not only the usual promises of fast Wi-Fi speeds and extended range, but is also set up and managed through an iOS app and adds features like malware protection via AVG and parental controls. {/exp:char_limit}

Review: Anki Cozmo

Jesse Hollington August 1, 2017

We found Anki’s debut product, Anki Drive, to be a bit underwhelming when it appeared back in 2013 — the iOS-driven racing car game was extremely innovative from a pure technology standpoint, but lacked enough staying power to hold our interest, especially for the price. However, with Anki Drive the company proved it was a contender in this product space, and Anki Drive definitely whet our appetites in anticipation of what the company would come up with next, and Anki didn’t disappoint: following a couple of years of research and development, Anki unveiled a new robotic pet, Cozmo, in the U.S. last fall, with a wider international rollout beginning this week with Cozmo’s Canadian debut. From a practical standpoint, Cozmo is a fundamentally different product from Anki Drive, although it’s obvious that both products build on the company’s core expertise in artificial intelligence. {/exp:char_limit}
