Wireless transceiver

QuickerTek today introduced a new wireless device for Mac laptop owners that allows them to receive wireless internet signals over one mile. The new transceiver requires no extra software or extra steps: "This small Transceiver is not much larger than a antenna, clips onto the PowerBook or iBook case and is easy to travel with and easy to pop on and use, where ever mobile Mac users go. It connects to the 'Book through the AirPort card, already installed on the Mac - just like an antenna. It's ideal when trying to get a full-speed connection at large public areas such as airports, college dorms, expansive offices, hotels, outdooor commons, and can't seem to connect at any tolerably fast speed." The device includes power converter when working near a power outlet, and can also be powered from a FireWire port on the computer. It is available for $200 and supports the 12-inch/14-inch iBooks, 15-inch aluminum/titanium PowerBooks, and 17-inch PowerBooks.
