Google’s #OnHub is NOT a wifi #router! it is a complete #IOT hub!
Google have pulled another act fit of it’s reputation of “don’t be evil” …
The Search giant, eager to get into our houses, have used deceit or let’s be nice and call it omitting information and twisting of facts ….
Instead of introducing Google OnHub as an internet of things gadget, like Amazon did for their echo
Google which is putting a lot of weight on iot , decided to outsmart the consumer and call the hub a Wifi router.
Technically, it is, but it is much more than that, a IOT hub has a much much more privacy implications than a simple Wifi router. And that’s what Google is hiding by presenting it as such, especially that Google have an extremely bad privacy reputation, especially due to the high level of cooperation they have with the NSA 1 2 3.
Back to Google OnHub, the device supports IEEE 802.11b/g/n at 2.4GHz and 802.11a/n/ac at 5GHz, has 12 internal WiFi antennas optimized via a congestion sensing radio and antenna technology. It also supports technologies central to home IoT gadgets like Bluetooth 4.0, IEEE 802.15.4 and Android Weave.
