NYC demands fix for WiFi issues

April 21, 2008 Leave a comment

This story made me chuckle. The New York City Department of Education have suspended delivery of all Macs until WiFi connectivity issues have been resolved. Current suggestions are that the fix will be included in the 10.5.3 update. From the article at AppleInsider, Apple has ‘apologized for the delay both in an email to faculty obtained by AppleInsider, and in a notice on the Apple product catalog on the Dell Managed Systems website’.That’s a lot more than us joe public’s have received so far for a problem that has existed since Leopard first shipped.

The second part is the most ironic given the history of public digs between Apple and Dell. All Apple wireless systems are currently held by Dell Managed Services, who have the DoE contract to handle computer procurement. So Apple has a problem with it’s laptops and Dell won’t release them until it’s fixed. Priceless.
