Does it have to be a beer can? Can we use a Coca-Cola can? Oh dear, so many questions and so much of rocket science. We are not quite sure whether or not your WiFi prefers beer or cola, but one thing is certain. The material used for cans has a strong boosting impact on your signal strength.
You should have known by now that we are not a traditional know-how tech blog. However, every now and then, we just cannot help ourselves admiring the simplicity and effectiveness of some practical ideas. If you want to know more, just Google Beer-Can-WiFi-Booster.
On the other hand, we can tell you first-hand from our own rich experience that managing your office or home WiFi network can really be quite a challenge. Even if you call for a professional support to the rescue, you will be unpleasantly surprised by the number of things that can limit your WiFi.

Something is definitely going on in the business-cyber-clouds, and it is not the rain. Grandpa Microsoft has generously offered $55 billion for the takeover of the Salesforce. However, the counteroffer was quite an ambitious and a merciless one. The Salesforce wants at least $70 billion.
And, we are where we are right now. We have been so occupied with the Windows 10 story that we failed to notice a wonderful job grandpa Microsoft was able to accomplish with its cloud CRM solutions. This may come as a surprise, but grandpa Microsoft has become a serious player here.
Not so long ago, grandpa Microsoft claimed no more than 5% of the cloud pie. It was forced to stay behind the top players in this field, such as Salesforce, SAP and Oracle. Now, the things have obviously changed, and the business weather is not so cloudy for grandpa Microsoft.
So, what is going to happen with the Salesforce? The business will be as usual. Nevertheless, grandpa Microsoft is going to breathe down Salesforce’s neck. That is for sure. If you do not want me as your best new owner, then you will have me as your worst old competitor. Right?
Have you ever wondered about a continent or a country with the fastest Internet on our planet? Probably you were, more than once. Yet, when it comes to this intriguing field, you just cannot avoid huge surprises. The first one is the global average speed of “only” 5 Mbps.
Now, you should know that there is only one country, which can guarantee an average speed greater than 20 Mbps for its citizens, and that is South Korea. What is even more interesting is a fact that only six countries in the whole world have an average above or very close to 15 Mbps.
Here they are: Ireland, Hong Kong, Sweden, The Netherlands, Japan, and Swiss with “only” 14.9 Mbps. On the other side, the snail Net lives, as you might have expected it, in South America and Africa. So, what are we supposed to think about these statistics? Are they good or bad?
Well, we are missing one invaluable piece of the complex puzzle for our final judgment. What is going on with all those billions of people, who still do not have any kind of the Internet access, in the first place? We are worrying about the top Net speed, despite the dark Internet corners of our planet. Seriously?
