Dave Keiser notes that Apple recently posted a feature on Agence France-Presse's use of Airport, Apple's version of wireless Ethernet, to move photos from the floor of the Republican convention. Bob Pearson, AFP's chief photographer for North America, is interviewed about how the wire service handled the transmission of DCS 520, D2000 and D1 photos during last week's selection of George W. Bush as the Republican candidate for US president.
