Apple patents RFID approach to home networking

Using RFID to simplify wireless networking is yet another example of elegant design from Apple.

"From a user stand point - you just bring [your] Macbook within a feet of your Airport Express and the network is set up.

You don’t even have to have [the] Macbook on at the time. RFID info to the tag can be read/written without [any] additional power source.

Then you turn your laptop on and it’s already on the network." |Unwired|
