In case you haven’t noticed, people love Airport and wireless networking. This is a good thing. If you are ever in a strange (or normal for that matter) metropolitan city in the U.S. with your Airport-equipped PowerBook and need a quick fix of bandwidth, simply click on your Airport control strip and probe around for available base stations.
