Wake On Demand in Snow Leopard

Putting your Mac to sleep saves power, but it also disrupts using your Mac as a file server, among other purposes. Wake on Demand in Snow Leopard works in conjunction with an Apple base station to continue announcing Bonjour services that the sleeping computer offers.

While the requirements for this feature are complex, eligible users can toggle this feature in the Energy Saver preference pane. It's labeled Wake on Network Access for computers that can be roused either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet; Wake on Ethernet Network Access or Wake on AirPort Network Access for wired- or wireless-only machines, respectively. Uncheck the box to disable this feature.

Macworld’s Dan Moren tracks down the picky details surrounding T-Mobile’s announcement that it will start selling the iPhone (the 4, 4S, and 5) in the United States on 12 April 2013. Notable facts about T-Mobile’s move include unsubsidized hardware for down payments plus monthly charges, a $50 per month unlimited plan (for talk, text, and data, with a 500 MB cap on 4G data, which includes tethering), and simultaneous voice and data (offered by AT&T currently, but not Verizon or Sprint).favicon follow link

A little confused by your last statement. Do you really mean simultaneous voice/data offer by AT&T, but NOT Verizon or Sprint?

Sorry, missing NOT, now added... You're correct. AT&T allows simultaneous voice and data, but Verizon and Sprint do not. Apparently T-Mobile will (which isn't surprising, given that they're using GSM).

Just verified with T-Mobile that the iPhone 5 will not support T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling feature, which is a bit of a bummer. Other sites are suggesting that it might eventually appear for the iPhone.
