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.

Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Hardy Heron

It is possible to install the free recent version of Ubuntu Linux,8.04 Hardy Heron on the Clamshell iBook. The PowerPC Desktop version needs at least 256MB RAM, i've installed it without problems on a 300MHZ Clamshell. This LTS (long time support- 3 years) version comes as a Live CD, that means that you can test it before you install it on your harddisk.
