None of these worked good enough for me to get rid of my note book.I think has changed with the latest Apple pencil that works on a 2018 iPad Pro. The updated pencil solved a few annoyances when compared to the previous one:It snaps to your device (but still falls of in your bag)When snapped, it charges, no mor...

The LibreRouter project aims to make mesh networks simple and affordable

In the city, we’re constantly saturated with the radio waves from 10 or 20 different routers, cell towers and other wireless infrastructure.
