Taptic Engine – Apple Watch (iWatch)

The taptic engine is apple’s feedback ‘vibrator’ that provides a new dimension to the apple watch.
It allows you to be notified by your apple watch or even send subtle taps to someone you’d like to contact. Not limiting the new watch to just visible notifications. It seems the intention of this element in the Apple Watch is to provide a feeling as if your friend is ‘tapping’ you on the wrist to get your attention.
Share heartbeat via Apple Watch
This “iWatch” features includes amazing possibilities such as sharing your heartbeat with your significant other.

What great things can you envision this feedback provider to do for apple devices?
I’m excited to no longer have to keep my iphone in my pocket 🙂

Nighthawk Router Antenna Upgrade Experience

Upgraded my DD-WRT Nighthawk router with these antennas: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HMRJ8WK/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0

Here’s some stats on stock vs these antennas with my upgrade.

Wireless strength with these antennas:

Device ending in A6 is running on the 5Ghz band and is about 20 feet from the router. Device ending in B0 is on the 2.4Ghz band and is across the street in another building 150+ feet away. Although the results are not amazing, do remember that these percentages are on a logarithmic scale. So 4 or 5% is actually a decent increase. Additionally, although I don’t have exact statistics for it, throughput with these antennas did create a noticeable increase (using it as a 5Ghz router with a client on the 2.4Ghz band to bridge the network connections).

Additionally, I could likely increase TX broadcast strength of this router (currently running it at 251mW) and have some further gain.

8/10 do recommend the upgrade on the Nighthawk running DD-WRT.
