Extending Xfinity Gigabit Internet Wi-Fi with Netgear Orbi

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:12:00 +0000

I just installed Xfinity Gigabit Internet at home. Disclosure: Upgrade cost for me is $17/month, difference between Blast! and Gigabit Internet today, covered by Xfinity for one year trial.

Reportedly they will come out with products that will be easily adopted by the market which do not require large and powerful PC’s to run like current VR products.

There will be options to slip your NEW iPhone into a headset, and also use some type of eyeglass/headset that will be inexpensive and be powered by a connected iPhone.

In the group I was in, everyone said they would buy all the new products.

No one has market share in AR/VR and it is a BIG opportunity for Apple.

On the other hand, many features of these new apps are also found in current phones so there’s always the chance that adoption will be smaller and slower.

But, if Apple brings out AR/VR products for THE REST OF US, it could be huge.

Time will tell…..(image)
