1. Tempur introduces Serena Williams as its new global brand ambassador.

Because she embodies power on and off the court, tennis superstar Serena Williams is the new “storyteller” for Tempur. In the brand’s new campaign, Power is fueled by night after night of deep, restorative sleep on a Tempur mattress.

“I require consistent, restful sleep in order to be at my best. And for the past 10 years, my Tempur bed and pillows have delivered that,” says Serena, who’s more than willing to share her Tempur story. “Over the years, my routine off the court—eating well, staying positive, and getting quality sleep—has paid dividends. Now as I start a new journey into motherhood, sleep will continue to be a top priority for my family—powered by Tempur.”

4. Linksys adds new features to its Linksys App to enhance the whole home Wi-Fi experience:

Bridge Mode for Velop™ and parental control scheduler to Velop and all Linksys App Enabled Routers (formally known as Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers) from its Max-Stream™ and WRT™ product lines.

“These two new App features have been among those most requested by our customers”, said Dan Albertson, senior product manager for Linksys software. “Many Velop customers need the ability to configure Velop in Bridge Mode to allow them to keep their existing router or gateway from their service provider in place for other services such as voice or IPTV while leveraging Velop’s whole home Wi-Fi coverage and performance. Parental controls scheduling has been a feature in the Linksys browser-based interface but our users have told us they need the flexibility to manage internet access schedules for their kids’ devices from the Linksys App. These are just two features among many we’ll be rolling out to the Linksys App in the coming months.” Users can visit the Linksys support site to learn more about Automatic Firmware updates.
