Awesome, new APs!

That Lite one is so cute, and the one with the speaker seems useful for certain installs.
Innovative Antenna Design. The innovative antenna design provides a long-range, symmetrical-link coverage area, and the antenna gain of the UniFi AC LR AP performs better than one-way, high transmit power does for connecting distant clients. UniFi AP AC LR ...

I think the pros outweigh the cons, it'll probably be my next phone, just have to get an invite.

I'm really looking forward to the dual SIMs, I have one carrier that has good coverage but a small data cap and another one that has poor coverage but unlimited data, it'll be awesome to combine them.

The first three I actually do all the time. It just doesn't make sense that they'd cut that corner... NFC jsnt an expensive thing to implement. I'd be willing to wager that a comparable number of people who don't use Bluetooth as people who don't use NFC, but they'd be laughed at if they didn't include Bluetooth

One thing I'll miss if I upgrade phones is the awesome lock screen music visualiser.

If I look hard enough I could probably find an equivalent though.

Wow, I just noticed that there are new cool gauges in the web interface and we FINALLY have a mobile UI! Super excited for the next release, I'll have to check the beta forum to see if it's available yet.

I can't wait to watch the first launch from the historic pads, although it'll be a while before we see one.

Story
Introduction
I enjoy Games, Movies, and TV ranging from SciFi, to Anime, and pretty much anything with a circuit board.

I have a strong technical skill and lifelong passion for networking and technology.

I currently work as a Medical systems technician, I utilized my technical skills to work on cutting-edge system design and installation, computer network administration, and small and medium network design. I also developed experience with fibre optics and helped to design web and software technical code. I travelled throughout Canada and the United States for on-site technical installations and software troubleshooting and developed strong communication skills while interacting with clients on a daily basis. I constantly worked in team-oriented environments and led cross-functional teams to achieve daily performance targets.

In addition I work at Canadian Tire Uxbridge as IT administrator managing all of the systems (over 40 PCs), network, and security cameras and DVRs - fixing any issues that arise. Over the course of the last three years, I successfully converted all of the IBM terminals to a PC based environment and completely overhauled the network backbone to increase organizational system productivity.

I love and work well with all forms computers and technology. I know a bunch on languages including C#, XAML, Actionscript3, javascript, HTML, CSS, etc. and technologies like Android, Windows server, Computer Hardware, and Computer Networks.

I also do graphic design, UI design, Photography, Videography, programming, 3D animation and Rendering.
