I have read several times on some Weblogs "The AtomAPI is finally out" after the release of Mark Pilgrim's article. Mark Pilgrim says clearly in the introduction that the API is not done yet, but for some reasons this article looks like it describes a finished API.
Roland: ElectAura-Net, a 10-Mbit/second Body Network. " NTT Docomo researchers in Japan have created a 10-Mbit/second indoor network by using human bodies as Ethernet cables". Your ethernet cable is broken? Easy fix: take your friend and plug him in!
I tried to update the software of my Airport Base Station to 4.0.8 (i got a message saying there were a new version, so here we go). The problem is that the process hang during the update. 15 minutes later the station was still updating so i had to kill the Admin Airport Utility. The problem is that I could not access or see the base station from my Mac. Ooops. How can i fix that if i cannot see the station wirelessly?! The doc said to do a soft reset, that did not help. Fortunately i managed to connect to the Internet with a wire (So 2000...) and I found this document that explain how to do a hard reset of the base station by connecting directly to it. It's the only small problem I ever got with my WIFI network, and let me tell you the Airport from Apple is very very easy to set up and use.
