Optimistic Wi-Fi Tidbits

Wi-FiIf you've been intrigued by all of the Wi-Fi wireless network related articles I've been posting here of late, I've come across a few more encouraging Wi-Fi related tidbits to share with you.

First, there's a great source of articles on getting unwired over at Wired Magazine. I especially got a kick out of Palm Pulls the Plugs on Palm, Inc's organic shift to internal Wi-Fi networks.

In other news, Kinko's copy shops and Border's bookstores have both announced Wi-Fi access across the US, in conjunction with T-Mobile's HotSpot service.

Finally, it seems Apple has already shipped more than 150,000 Airport Extreme base networking products, since its launch in January at MacWorld San Francisco. Airport Extreme is Apple's brand name for Wi-Fi 802.11g, which offers up to 5 times the speed of regular Airport (802.11b) while maintaining backward compatibility with older 802.11b equipment.

It's wonderful to see Wi-Fi increasing in popularity! :-)
