O\'Reilly: Mac OS X Unwired
O'Reilly has published "" ($25), a guide to wireless technology and Mac OS X. "Mac users can connect to the Net whenever their iBook or PowerBook is in range of a Wi-Fi network," authors Tom Negrino and Dori Smith explain. But wireless technologies aren't just for Internet access, Negrino and Smith advise. "You can also use your Mac to communicate wirelessly with peripherals such as mice and keyboards, to connect to your cell phone or PDA, or to share files and use iChat with other computers." The book introduces readers to the basics of wireless computing, from the reasons behind it, to setting up a wireless network or accessing wireless services on the road.
