Time to stop using the word “air” too describe radio waves

Posted on March 27th, 2014 Dan

Electromagnetic radiation is not made of air and propagates just fine in empty space.  So calling it “airwaves” or calling a network adapter an AirPort is misleading.  Apple should name their Wi-Fi PhotonPort or MicrowavePort instead but who wants a MicrowavePort resting on their lap?
