Google’s OnHub router was met with decent reception (heh), but a new report by Android Police indicates the company is looking to announce a new router alongside its upcoming probably-called-Pixel phones on October 4. It will simply be called Google Wi-Fi. The router will almost certainly include some of the OnhHub’s ‘smart’ features for simplifying connections and optimizing reception (although whether the OnHub really performed any better than similarly prices routers is questionable). But one big advantage over OnHub is that you will be able link multiple routers to create a larger, stronger Wi-Fi network. Android Police also suggests it will…

Large companies were usually the only ones who had access to top talent, resources, and the best tools to get the job done. However, with cloud computing and globalization we can see that smaller companies can not only be up and running with the latest and greatest technologies but they can also tap into top talent around the world. My business would definitely be considered “small” by any measurement, yet I work with amazing designers, developers, and community managers from Serbia, the Philippines, France, and the USA. This is true for any small company today. Now combine this with the fact that smaller companies are also usually more nimble, adaptable, agile, and deal with less bureaucracy, and you start to see why I’m so bullish on small businesses. Sure, larger organizations may have access to more in terms of cash and the things that cash can buy (which admittedly, depending on the industry can be quite a lot) but for the most part I think the smaller guys have a very real shot at disrupting many of the established players.
