Mobile Week In Review

We got new Macs and more importantly, there were some developments in wireless Internet that we brought to your attention.

The new Macbooks embodied new designs, new chipsets, and generated a lot of excitement among Mac users that was long overdue.  We didn't see the $800 Macbook that was a single rumor that did not have an ounce of support whatsoever.  Nevertheless, there was a lot of value added to the new line.
