Airport Express redesign

Apple has released a redesigned model of its Airport Express base station. The new model looks very similar to the Apple TV, except that it's white. The new model sports a couple of features that the previous one didn't: dual Ethernet ports (compared to just one on the last one,) and simultaneous dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. The Airport Express is $99, available today from the Apple Store.

Buffalo 802.11ac wzr-d1800h

Buffalo has just released the very first 802.11ac router in the $179.99 WZR-D1800H, alongside the WLI-HD-D1300 wireless media bridge. With speeds of up to 1.3Gbps, the new 802.11ac standard is three times faster than 802.11n, but the only problem is that there aren't any 802.11ac chips installed in any computers yet, so buying the router right now would just mean you are preparing for the future. Luckily, it's backwards compatable with 802.11a/b/g/n standards, so you're good there. The AirStation AC1300 media bridge allows you to connect up to four wired devices to your new 802.11ac network. You can grab both products now.
