Apple charge less for 802.11n faster Wi Fi

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

There is rumor that apple will charge 5 dollars for downloading software enabler patch to activate 802.11n Wi-fi chip that has already planted inside the system. Apple representative, Lyn Fox gave her statement to Cnet that it will cost only 1.99 dollars and available at Apple’s official website.

802.11n chip come with every Mac that has Intel Core 2 Duo or Xeon processor, except the one with the 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo chip. But as mentioned above, to enable the Wi Fi chip you have to spend another 1.99 dollars. However the good news is, for you who has purchased the new Airport Extreme Base Station (179$) can get the software for free as it is included in package.

Why does Apple charge instead of giving it for free? Apple mentioned that the charge is necessary, generally because under the accounting principle circumstances. Is there any other purpose behind the scene? Yes it sounds weird, what do you think?

Be patient, all things come to those who are patient.
