We've known for a while that Telstra was planning a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot to compliment its existing USB 4G device and the HTC Velocity 4G. It's just poked its head up in Telstra's business catalog, revealing itself (rather predictably) to be a rebadged Sierra Wireless device. No word as yet as to pricing or exact availability -- I'm waiting to hear back from Telstra on this score -- but an image scanned by Whirlpool user MR. Coconuts shows the 4G Hotspot. It's pretty clearly the Sierra Wireless AirCard 803S (or a very close relative thereof, reworked to Telstra's 1800 LTE frequency), and presumably the successor to the Ultimate WiFi Hotspot Telstra released last year. I wonder if this year's model will chirp like a Game & Watch the way last year's did? (Thanks to Mike for the tip!) [Whirlpool & Sierra Wireless]

Within a matter of minutes after Ron Howard announced the name of his upcoming Han Solo prequel film, Star Wars fans flocked to Twitter to express their distaste for the (admittedly) straightforward title. Solo. A Star Wars Story. Here's the thing, though, the name is perfectly fine.
We're five episodes into the latest instalment of the Star Trek television canon. Despite some weirdness about the Klingons appearance and the way they speak, I think Star Trek. Discovery has the potential to be the best Star Trek series put to air. Some, perhaps many, will disagree but after just five episodes, I've seen enough to make me think this could take the franchise into places Gene Roddenberry never went before.
