Belkin AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router unboxed

The next generation of Wi-Fi connectivity is 802.11ac, and routers are on sale now to provide the signal. The main problem? There are, literally, no laptops, tablets, or smartphones right now that sell with 802.11ac support built-in. Still, you have the opportunity to future-proof your wireless setup in anticipation for the arrival of the super-fast standard, and the Belkin AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router is one of the first available. We got one in for review, and we are in the process of putting it through its paces. In the meantime, while you wait for the AC1200 review, check out our Belkin AC1200 DB unboxing gallery, showing off the spaceship-like curves of the router. You can pick one up now on Amazon.

Apple, Nokia, and Google Map security brouhaha: fact or hype?

Apple Maps Hanscom Air Force Base

In the latest Apple Maps saga, The Verge is reporting some security concerns regarding sensitive military installations that appear on mapping solutions by Apple. as compared to Google Maps and Nokia Maps. The picture being portrayed is that Apple is showing more information than the other companies. While it may appear accurate on the surface, it lacks transparency and fairness. Case in point, we all can agree that Area 51 is one of the most secretive government military installations in the world. Coincidentally, or ironically, The Verge failed to report that Google's map offering shows a much more pristine image of Area 51 than Apple's map of that particular base, nor is it pixelated for security. I went out of my way to tweet the author of the post to get an explanation for the discrepancy. There are definitely more examples of similar discrepancies, this isn't limited to just Area 51.

iPhone 5: White & SIlver or Black & Slate? (gallery)

Black & White iPhone 5 standing next to each other

The iPhone 5 is the most beautiful iPhone that Apple has released to date (seriously - check our iPhone 5 review!) Since our review features both the white & silver model and the black & slate model, we've been getting questions about which is "better." The thing is, it's all a matter of opinion, although the black model is a bit more susceptible to scratches and scuffs. Since some people don't have an Apple Store nearby where they can check out the two color options for themselves, we've put together an iPhone 5 White vs. Black photo gallery. Check it out, as we have a bunch of comparison shots for your perousal. Let us know what you decide!

iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S rear panels

Earlier today we gave you a look at our iPhone 5 black & slate unboxing gallery, as well as our iPhone 5 white & silver unboxing gallery. Since then, we've received a few questions about how the new iPhone 5 compares to the iPhone 4S from a hardware design perspective, so we figured we would put together a third gallery for you. In our iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S vs. iPhone Original gallery, we give you a look at the new hardware as compared to the last model, and we also throw the orignal iPhone into the mix for added measure. Head on over and take a look, and be ready for our exhaustive iPhone 5 review to drop later this  evening!
