It’s been a year since the AirPort Express was refreshed. The first time such a device came on the scene was the year 2004. Since then twice at four year intervals, it has been renewed in an act of generational fine-tuning. The latest featured a renovated design and dual-band 802.11n parity.
However, with the MacBook Airs coming to stores in the hot month of June, Apple Incorporated made room for supporting 802.11ac, which was a notch above 802.11n. In order to accommodate and facilitate the Wi-Fi standard procedure, AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule models were also produced. The entire Mac series is expected to feature 802.11ac. These include within their purview Haswell-based MacBook Pro models and a special Mac Pro that will arrive by the end of this year.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are purported to come on the scene sometime in the middle of September. The AirPort Express will have no part in this event whatever the rumor mill may say.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
