SPOTLIGHT: You can look it up

WiFi is now an official word (not that anyone was waiting for this designation to use it). It is included in the new edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary. Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the Wi-Fi Alliance, said, "You know you've truly made it when you're in Webster's dictionary. Webster's is a highly respected source for word definitions, so appearing in the dictionary lends real credibility to everything the Wi-Fi Alliance has been working toward." Story
