Macs With 3G — More Connectivity, More Problems

narramissic writes “In a recent blog post, Josh Fruhlinger muses on the possibility of 3G radio receivers turning up in future Mac notebooks (as foretold by Apple job postings and the mention of WWAN hardware in Snow Leopard beta releases). ‘At first glance,’ says Fruhlinger, ‘this seems like a reasonably awesome idea.’ But will the target market be willing to take on the additional telecom charge? ‘And, more to the point,’ he says, ‘most of us have gotten accustomed to the idea of one Internet connection per household, shared with a wireless router. The latter idea could be covered by a router that connects to the Internet over a 3G connection — something like the MiFi hotspot. It wouldn’t surprise me if Apple had such a thing in the pipeline, an Airport station (Airport Mobility?) that didn’t need to be plugged into the wall. That would explain the search for 3G experts, anyway.'”
