There are lots of great articles, and some really bad ones, on the Internet. Though we link to all of them at MacOS News Around The Web, some of them deserve special mention here. Most of what we will mention within these pages will be among the best, but on occasion we will talk about articles that are so bad or so wrong we just have to say something. Consider them mini-editorials on our part about things we think you might also be interested in.

Best [3:30 PM] Mac OS Planet: - AirPort Works In Mac OS X Public Beta!
Let us first add this disclaimer: We have not yet tried this and do not know if it will actually work or render your computer as useful as a pile of rusty nails. However, it is intriguing to think that the "hooks" for AirPort access are buried deep down inside Beta somewhere. Mac OS Planet gives the low -down on how to go wireless with Beta. Our favorite quote from the article:

While I have been unable to test this setup myself because I don?t have an AirPort, it would be great news to see that Apple has made progress with the AirPort system as it is a key part of their product lineup.

You just know AirPort will eventually work, it would just be more cool if it worked now. Reviewer - Kyle DiAddario
