Good to know. One more evidence to prove Steve's visionary status. I love to hear more of this story and more about Steve Jobs. Thanks Cees.

I think even Steve would be nauseated by all this postmortem fabulization. Airport appeared in 1999 as a straightforward PCMCIA option. not exactly news to the non-Apple PC world where it came from.

How did we survive without wireless Internet? Steve Jobs had the vision and the power to turn promising technology into a new paradigm: ubiquitous access to information. Great to be witnessing the breakthrough of this technology, thanks Cees and team.

It is a little sad to see that every technological advancement now is being attributed to steve Jobs. It is obvious that some engineer that worked for Lucent came up with the idea of WIFI. It wasnt Steve Jobs that created anything. He just stole other people's ideas.

Steve Jobs is rightly recognized as a peerless salesman and designer. He may not have invented the mouse interface, the wireless LAN, or multi-font personal computers - but without him, these now essential capabilities would have been a long time getting into our hands. Thanks for telling another of the many stories that deserve wider distribution.

Story is good. However, some attributes are over emphasized. But I like the gist of story.
