The Indian Ocean island of Mauritius is still reeling from the devastating oil spill caused by the Panama-flagged, Japanese-owned vessel, The Wakashio. More questions are now being asked about the cause of the incident as the original claims start to unravel.
The first day that the Panama Maritime Authorities landed in Mauritius on September 8, they claimed that the captain had ordered a change of course to “find internet or a telephone signal.”
While this captured many headlines, most in Mauritius were doubtful about this account, given that internet connectivity was easily available even 12 nautical miles off shore, where most vessels on the busy
Accessory maker Arlo today introduced the Pro 4, a new version of its security camera that connects directly to Wi-Fi for easier setup as a standalone security solution, eliminating the need for a separate base station.
Like its Pro 3 predecessor, the Pro 4 features 2K video resolution with HDR, a 160-degree viewing angle, an integrated spotlight and siren, color night vision, two-way audio, and a wire-free, weather-resistant design. A removable, rechargeable battery continues to provide up to six months of battery life per charge.
Unfortunately, the Pro 4 is not compatible with HomeKit at launch, according to the Arlo website. The Pro 3 gained HomeKit support five months after it launched, so it is possible that the Pro 4 will receive HomeKit in a future software update. We’ve reached out to Arlo for comment on their HomeKit plans and we’ll update this story if we hear back.

Rob La Gesse’s resume reads like a Hollywood script.
Navy veteran. Mayor. Wi-Fi development team member. Author.
A man of many talents, La Gesse credits his accomplishments to working with great leaders and innovators of technology. That, and caring about others around him.
“My life, from being a medic to a vice president in a publicly-traded company, has been about how I can empower other people,” La Gesse, 59, said. “I call it compassionate leadership. Everything that happened to me happened because I was nice to someone.”
He grew up in Papineau, Illinois, one of six boys. At 16, his family moved to Corpus Christi. He said it was a memorable trip because they drove through traffic-jammed streets of Memphis on the day of Elvis Presley’s funeral.
College wasn’t a financial option. In 1979, after La Gesse graduated from Mary Carroll High School, he enlisted in the Navy.

Roku just announced a new Streambar, and its other new piece of hardware for 2020 is an updated Roku Ultra player, which will cost $100. Improvements to the company’s top-of-the-line streaming device include a better Wi-Fi range and compatibility with Dolby Vision video — which is available from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus — just in time for The Mandalorian Season 2.
While many Roku players, including the $50 Roku Streaming Stick Plus, offer 4K resolution, Dolby Atmos audio and standard high dynamic range video, the 2020 Roku Ultra is the first to include Dolby Vision HDR. In CNET’s tests Dolby Vision can look a bit better than standard HDR in some cases, but the difference is largely dependent on the TV and the video source. Even so, many owners
Wi-Fi 6 feels like it’s coming of age. Most newly released laptops and smartphones now have Wi-Fi 6 built in, although it’s likely that the majority of devices in your home will be on older, slower Wi-Fi standards for a good while yet. All of which begs the question: is it worth investing in a Wi-Fi 6 mesh router system such as the Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 AX4200 (RBK752) now?
The good news – performance
Let’s start with the reasons to get excited. This thing is seriously fast – but only if you’ve got Wi-Fi 6 laptops/phones to take advantage of it.
I call it a thing, but it’s actually two things. A router and a satellite device that you can place in another part of the house, extending the home’s Wi-Fi coverage. The two units are near identical and look elegant,
Like many low-income families across the city, Brice didn’t have the budget for a high-speed internet connection, which can range anywhere from $30 to $100 a month depending on the quality.
“These are the things that make the difference between clean clothes and food,” Brice said. “Having cell phone access was more important.”
Brice was fortunate. Her employer wound up covering the cost of the family’s internet connection, and many schools provided students with a laptop or tablet to take home.
But as the lack of a reliable internet connection moves rapidly from being an inconvenience to a threat to one’s livelihood, momentum is growing in cities around the country to offer affordable – or free – Wi-Fi to residents.
In Providence, the first organization to step up with a plan was ONE Neighborhood Builders, a community development organization known primarily for building affordable housing, which is hoping to launch
