Airport Express

In the course of 24 hours, the news of the upcoming Airport Express has absolutely lit up my RSS reader. There must be 10 different blogs that have written about it since yesterday. I’m still a little shaky on what all it can do, such as whether it can be used entirely as a base station. It sounds like it can, since it apparently will look for whatever connections it has on every interface. If it is plugged into an Ethernet network by the wired interface then it is supposed to automatically configure itself and then open the outbound wireless network. I sure would like to have one to play with and figure out exactly what it can do. I do like the notion of Apple reusing the form factor of the charger. There are so many things about the modern Apple products that are just nice and sexy
