For Apple fanistas, Christmas—as in Macworld—is just around the corner. The annual Mac lovefest in San Francisco opens with a Steve Jobs keynote that usually reveals Apple’s latest and greatest, such as last year’s show-stopping iPhone. What’s in store next week? It could be the Mac helping WiMAX technology hit the mainstream, reports All Things Digital.
WiMAX technology is supposed to afford users high-speed Internet access even in moving vehicles, but adoption of it has been slow. A number of PCs already offer WiMAX cards, but networks are few, with Sprint the only big carrier to make it a major focus. Speculation that Apple could join the WiMax push has been fueled by the hoisting of banners reading “There is Something in the Air" during Macworld setup.
