[prMac.com] Announcing the new Quicky, perfect for the Ti Book. The new Quicky is a further refinement of an already great product. This powerful USB transceiver maximizes a Titanium PowerBook's wireless connection. The AirPort card found in Ti Books is only 25 milliwatts. The 500mW Quicky increases the signal strength to 500 milliwatts. Quicky also changes the Ti Book from 802.11 B to 802.11 G. Quicky works with all types and clock speeds of Ti Books. This gives the Ti Book the wireless speed that Apple left out!
No more taking apart the Ti Book for more speed, the Quicky simply clips on the display and plugs into the USB port. This way the 500mW Quicky is easily and fully removable. Quicky is powered either by the USB port and/or the supplied AC adaptor. The AC adaptor is provided to increase battery life on the Ti Book. The new Quicky™ also works with any Mac with a USB port. QuickerTek makes wireless enhancements for other Macs too.
As an introductory offer, QuickerTek and Untangled Life are giving a free Titanium PowerBook Handle with the 500mW Quicky (while supplies lasts). Rand Denny from Untangled Life says, "This is a great deal for Ti Book owners to get great wireless and a sweet handle."
QuickerTek products can be purchased online and from authorized dealers.
