There's something in the air = Apple WiMax support?

Ah. Our first hints to MW. [www.appleinsider.com]


Valleywag says the "There's something in the air" phrase is a reference to WiMax, which will have a card built into the new MBPs. How cool would it be if each new MBP came with a "free" 2 year sub to Sprint's WiMax service. That could actually get it off the ground. Sprint is going national (national meaning major cities) in the spring. I wonder if ATT would be nervous seeing Apple play w/ another CellCo, even for a different product.

Heh! You beat me to it! I was just now posting that link!

BTW, what is on that huge iPhone display? A finder window?

Ummm..... I cannot imagine Apple embracing any wireless standard that won't be supported on the iPhone. It would be unlike Apple to try to satisfy end-users at the cost of internal ideological consistency.

I think that is just a mistake, in which the iPhone demo is running in Quicktime from a Mac lower than it is supposed to be, revealing the Mac's desktop underneath.

there are only 2 Wimax companies: Clearwire amd Sprint

Unless 1 them is getting into business with Apple I doubt the WiMax theory

"something in the air" = "we shouldn't have served that 3-bean chili last night"
