But word has reached us via arstechnica that the second draft of wireless N was approved yesterday, putting us all a little closer to a final draft, expected in 2008.Wireless N has been a bit of a headache for the technology industry because of repeated delays in approving the final draft of the new standard for Wi Fi chips and routers. Companies that wanted to crank out faster and more robust Wi Fi technology jumped on the first draft of standards, which in some cases led to potential communication problems between different versions of the pre N technology.But in January heavy hitters like Intel and Apple finally got tired of waiting for the final draft and announced they were coming out with their own wireless N tech.

It really slows me down.”Posted: 2007/04/27 at 6:27 PMNothing quite like formatting a fresh hard drive and doing a clean OS installation, only to have to spend a good half hour removing all the trial software, ISP adverts, and such that came inconveniently bundled in the software CDs of my laptop.Personally, I’m thinking buying a full box version of Windows would be better than these cheaper ad filled OEM versions. Too bad I don’t have hundreds of dollars to cough up.
