Correction: Apple has been offering AirPort (their name for 802.11b wireless networking) in their laptops since the summer of 1999 -- that's slightly over three years, not just one. AirPort was first included in the original "P1" iBooks, which were released in July of that year. Today, AirPort is available as an option in every computer Apple sells, including both their iBook and PowerBook G4 laptops and also the iMac, eMac, and Power Macintosh desktop systems. This story pretty seriously misrepresented Apple's market position in wireless computing.
