The Apple Beat: 5 Technologies Apple pioneered that became tech standards  

……
WiFi - Apple called it AirPort and it debuted with the original clamshell iBooks and the AirPort Base Station which was a hotspot that resembled a spaceship. A magical technology, AirPort made it possible to untether from an Ethernet connection in order to get true wireless Internet. WiFi has evolved, it is a standard feature on most portable devices and everyone from Starbucks to McDonald’s offers free connections to entice users.

iBook AirPort Card - AirMac Card

Sometimes you will find AirMac Cards that come in the same design as the original Airport Card. They are indeed identical wireless cards , which Apple sold in Japan.
The japanese company I-O Data owned the rights for Airport, so Apple used the slightly different AirMac.
