(Japanese link) may have a name only a mother could love, but its goals are lofty. It intends to raise the wireless range on your computer to 170
(that’s over 550 feet for us Yanks). Just plug it into your computer’s USB port and
suction the giant antenna onto the back of your laptop
, and you’re good to go. Okay, so
may not be a watchword on this sucker, but if you need the range, well, you need the range.
It’s coming to Japan first, for a price of about $39, but there’s no word yet on American ship date, or whether it will be compatible with my MacBook. Which gets pretty good wireless reception, so perhaps I can avoid the eyesore.
