AndroidTV USB Ethernet AdapterThese days, streaming is all the rage.

Whether you have a smart TV, a streaming stick, Blu-Ray player, soundbar, or even some projectors, many of these gizmos come with Android TV built in.

Too many of them also only have WiFi – no Ethernet jack to be found! This is particularly irritating for those of us who want to go wired and avoid the Wireless Wonderland.

So, how to get Ethernet? Well, you just buy a USB-Ethernet adapter, right?

Yes – sort of…

Why phone SAR ratings are silly

SAR ratings are useless!The Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR, of a phone shows how much energy from radio frequency waves is absorbed by body parts – head, torso, whole body, etc.

If you’re wondering if a particular phone actually HAS mmWave, good luck figuring it out.

Even worse, in most areas it’s darn near impossible to find out what flavor of 5G is being used: Is it mmWave, or not?!

Good luck with that one, too.

And to top it all off, it doesn’t really matter anyway because even official government bodies are really looking at 5G and EXISTING wireless tech, and starting to get worried…
