The best thing about WiFi is exactly what it was created for; reaching areas that cables just can’t. Unfortunately, in many cases, to manage that wireless connection you still need to be physically connected to it. And although many wireless routers do allow access via the web that isn’t much help if your router isn’t allowing internet access or you just don’t use it for that purpose. But, if you own one of Apple’s wireless routers and an iOS device your worries could be significantly lowered since you can perform some basic functions right from your couch. In fact, you can even setup any Apple AirPort Extreme BaseStation or AirPort Express and have it fully running all without slaving over at your desktop computer.
Well, I don’t know about you but today March 17, 2009, Apple brought us some major awesomeness all in one fell swoop named iPhone OS 3.0. Apple has been on a roll from day one by living up to their word that all updates will work on all devices and they will continue to update and improve the OS. To date Apple has successfully issued a total of 12 iPhone OS updates, which includes one major OS upgrade going from v1.0 to v2.0. That’s an average of 6 updates within a 12 month period since the iPhone was released pending no minor update release before the 3.0 released. That alone is 10 points in my book for Apple.
