    I was looking at the spec. of Airport Extreme. and its say "AirPort Extreme is compliant with the current draft version of the 802.11g specification from the IEEE"? BTW, Linksys is also selling a draft 802.11g spec products too!

    what the heck, is a draft version? is not "final" yet?

    according to Broadband House mag (http://www.bbhmag.com/content/qa1.html)

    Guess, Apple might provide a firmware upgrade when 802.11g becames a standard? what do you think? or wait till 802.11g is finish.

    nothing better to push a standard to certification than major companies putting out products.

    That is how many formats/designs become a standard and completed. Look at Mpeg4. From what I know even now Mpeg4 standard hasn't been completely agreed upon but Apple and others are using it.

    Speaking about Standards, why will apple *Never* adopt Divx?

    I swear (I'm a jew it don't matter) if Divx Doctor crashes one more time decoding this... errrrr.

    Anyway apple moves forward in technologyies that people will probably not jump fore, its a bonus for getting an apple, just not the more important factors. :(
