Glenn Fleishman just completed his most recent book, Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network, Second Edition, and joins us to discuss a variety of Airport matters, including why Apple abandoned that term in OX X 10.7 Lion. Only the base station units retain the “Airport” name, and Glenn covers some of the benefits that the latest versions provide, and what the can mean for you. The discussion also covers how to improve your wireless network performance, AirDrop and what it could mean for the forthcoming iOS 5, and the complexities and simplicities of AirPlay.
