Startup of the week: SOLD

soldandroid[1]“I have an APP” seem to be common words to exchange these days. Seems like every good idea we have  can be translated into an APP , it’s like hitting a jackpot. Maybe even better, because you indeed reap the rewards you sow when you invest your time and money in a startup.

Ironic because the idea of being an entrepreneur kinda sounds like you are done working for “The Man” and you are now your own man! That may just be the biggest misconception ever. Well yes you are done working for you boss, but there is still  “A Man” and that man just so happens to be yourself. Who also happens to be…Your BIGGEST critic. You will never work as hard as when you are in charge of creating and producing the results of your own company.

This is why we have decided to highlight and shout out a different startup every week. You deserve the exposure for all of your hard work, and as tech company that also began as a startup, we want you to be in the spot light and get the exposure that you deserve for all of your hard work.

Amped Wireless REC10 Extender Review

Amped Wireless is a company built on over-delivery.. They create hardware that is better than the “average” wireless products out there. The REC10 Compact Wireless Extender is no exception. We all have those areas in our home or office which for some reason have a much tougher time connecting to the primary Wi-Fi Network. These are generally referred to as “dead zones” and they stink.

Amped Wireless REC10 ExtenderAmped Wireless has several repeaters, but one of the best features of the REC10 is it’s small form factor. You can plug this into an outlet and still use the other socket. It’s small and packs not one, but two wifi transmitters, allowing it to increase your wifi network range by up to 6500 feet.

A product can tout its features, but with me, for a long time now, I have to see it work in action. So, I got one of these bad-boys to demo with and plugged it in inside the house on the opposite site of the home.
