Have you ever wondered what the world would look like if invisible radio signals — such as those from Wi-Fi antennas — could actually be seen? Apparently, someone else did, and the results are somewhat creepy.
Docks are a great way to use bare 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch internal hard drives without requiring costly enclosures, and Vantec is about to make them friendly with mobile gadgets thanks to the power of Wi-Fi.
In a WWDC keynote address packed with new MacBooks and previews of both OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6, Apple had little time to talk about a refresh to its $99 AirPort Express, which is now available for sale.
Apple users know what it’s like to buy a product for its potential rather than its current value. New Mac owners waited nearly a year to see a significant number of products make use of the speedy Thunderbolt ports built into their hardware. Now the waiting game has begun with next-generation wireless networking.
Apple quietly refreshed the AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule base stations earlier this summer, and a new report claims they’ll soon cap off the move with an update to the 802.11n model of the AirPort Express, presumably ahead of this fall’s launch of the iCloud service.
WWDC 2011 is now just a memory, but iOS device owners have a lot to look forward to this fall with iCloud and the new iOS 5. More importantly, these offerings may offer clues as to what we can expect from the next iPhone, which is widely rumored to debut with the new mobile operating system in September.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you: Apple appears to planning the imminent release of new AirPort Extreme Base Station and Time Capsule models, with confirmation coming from none other than the FCC. Anyone in the market for some new networking products?
