The 2019 Mercedes G-Class looks vintage but has a killer voice assistant

Mercedes-Benz has redefined the G-Wagen. On Sunday, it revealed the 2019 G550 during the Detroit Auto Show. While the exterior looks much the same as the big, boxy icon, it’s finally a remade vehicle with modern technology. Like your remodeled Palm Springs midcentury house, its up-to-date inside.

D-Link is the latest company to get an early start on 802.11ax routers

802.11ax is the next big jump in Wi-Fi, designed to be faster and better at coping with handling large numbers of devices connected at one time, as is increasingly common in our houses and offices. It’s also not actually quite finished, with the Wi-Fi Alliance not actually planning on product certification for the new standard until next year.
