Our guide makes it easy to sift through the marketing hype, confusing speed numbers, and wildly conflicting online customer reviews and select the right wireless router for your needs.

Get ready for your Facebook past to come back with a vengeance; the social network is now rolling out its new profile layout, Timeline , to all users worldwide. Timeline is basically an online scrapbook that displays your Facebook activity in reverse chronological order going back to when you first joined the social network. This means you and your Facebook friends will be able to peruse your social networking history with just a few clicks. Previously, there was no practical way to view your older activity on Facebook. If Timeline's debut has you wondering whether you can hide the embarrassing bits of your Facebook life before your new profile goes live, the good news is you can.

New Zealand was the first to receive the new feature, and now it is being rolled out to everyone. If you haven’t been keeping up with how Timeline will change your Facebook experience , then you are in for one heck of a surprise. As ReadWriteWeb so aptly states, “Timeline turns the profile into an illustrated, browsable history of a user’s entire life, with major milestones and little moments smartly chosen by Facebook’s algorithm.”

When I checked my Time Zone settings, my iPhone was indeed currently using my location to ensure that I had not switched time zones in the past 24 hours. Not good, and certainly a potential battery killer, depending on how often this is happening. To fix this: 1.
