Not all Wifi connections are created equal. Some are free; others are relatively expensive. Some are fast, and some are painfully slow. But what if you could combine all of your connections into one super-fast, super-reliable connection?
That’s what the Connectify folks — the same ones who are using software to turn your PC into a hotspot — are doing with Dispatch, their new Kickstarter project. The idea is simple (despite the fact that the technology surely is not).
WiFi is everywhere. It’s in the coffee shop, in the airport, and likely in your pocket (in the form of either a 3G/4G hotspot or a tether-friendly smartphone). Yet anywhere outside of your home or work connection, things tend to be a bit slower and less reliable. Connectify Dispatch is a software solution that lets you combine a public WiFi connection (at the airport, for example) with another network (like your 4G hotspot).
This allows you to do things that wouldn’t normally be possible on a slow, crowded, yet free network, while not running up a crazy bill on your expensive hotspot. Dispatch lets you set different priorities for certain networks, so you can set the airport WiFi or an Ethernet connection to “primary,” and your hotspot to “secondary.”
Connectify has already had some incredible success, including funding from IQT and a staggering amount of usage on its WiFi Hotspot app. The company tells us that 233,000 active users have started a Connectify Hotspot connection in the last 24 hours. That’s nearly 10,000 users every hour.
The same type of success is only sure to follow with Dispatch (Kickstarter link).

Another new feature coming in iOS 6 will be limited to devices running Apple’s custom A5 chip or later, as FaceTime over 3G will only be capable on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or third-generation iPad.
Whether you have an unlimited data plan or you’re interested in carefully monitoring the mobile data you use, Android users have plenty of options when it comes to tools that keep track of their mobile data usage. Some carriers pre-load their own apps, but if you’re looking for a better one, you can’t go wrong with Onavo Count. Its widgets, support for 3G and 4G devices, and per-app display makes it the most useful app in the category. More »
Samsung is fighting Apple’s requests for a preliminary injunction against its Galaxy Tab with the argument that the 4G capability of its tablet means it does not directly compete with Apple’s 3G-equipped iPad 2.

If you’re looking to get a new iPad and happen to have an old one (and by old, I mean the iPad 2), Apple just made it that much easier.
Apple’s Reuse and Recycling Program has been updated today to reflect the values for various models of the iPad 2. The program offers Apple gift cards in exchange for your old gadgetry, which will hopefully entice you to trade-in instead of lopping your perfectly good components into a land fill. Not only are you saving a few bucks, but you’re being green.
And more importantly, the savings you’ll get by trading in your iPad 2 for a new one are pretty great. According to TNW, these are the trade-in values of all iPad 2 editions:
- iPad 2 Wifi (16GB) – $205
- iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (16GB) – $250
- iPad 2 Wifi (32GB) – $245
- iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (32GB) – $280
- iPad 2 Wifi (64GB) – $275
- iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (64GB) – $320
The worst part about being an Apple fan is that it’s almost impossible to not have the new, new thing. Apple’s Reuse and Recycling program makes that issue a bit easier, as do other services like eBay Instant Sale. The point is: it’s much better to get some cash and reuse components than it is to throw this stuff in the trash, so if you’re ready to trade the old in for the new, head on over to Apple’s trade-in page by clicking here.
