Eero's New Router Doubles as a Bouncer for Your Smart Home

WIRED

Generally speaking, your router has one job: keep those internet juices flowin'. When Eero launched its mesh router, it made waves by stringing multiple devices together so that your Wi-Fi could reach more places in your home and run more quickly. The concept of "mesh networking" took off and soon, everyone else copied the idea. Now even Netgear and Linksys want to sell you a three-part mesh system. Your Wi-Fi options are better and faster than ever, but Eero lost its advantage.

Instead, it's improved even more.

With Amazon Go, Retail Beacons Are Dead

Forbes - Tech

The future of retail for marketers was supposed to be merry and bright: armed with their smartphones, consumers would walk into a store and pass a geofence, which would then alert the consumer of stores offering discounts and coupons for various products via their smartphone. The consumer would buy discounted product and then go home and be happy. Except, this is exactly how no one shops. This isn't to say that in-store shopping isn't already an online experience. It's just that the idea of locally offering deals to consumers based around a particular item or brand is very old school.
