Farallon Sponsoring TidBITS

Farallon Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're pleased to welcome our latest sponsor, Farallon Communications. Farallon started out in 1986 and quickly made the PhoneNet LocalTalk connector one of the most ubiquitous networking products for the Macintosh. From there, Farallon branched out into Ethernet, LAN, and Internet products before changing its name to Netopia, Inc. in 1997. But in August of last year, Farallon spun out of Netopia again as a separate company focusing on Ethernet and LAN networking, including Mac-specific items such as EtherMac iPrint adapters, LocalTalk products, and (of course) a variety of Ethernet networking hardware for a wide range of past and present Macintosh models. Perhaps more importantly, however, Farallon focuses on making networking technology simple and easy to understand, in part by publishing "Ask Dr. Farallon" guides to common networking topics, and recently opening a new Home Network Web site covering basic home and small office networking. Farallon's re-emergence is great for the Macintosh industry, and we're happy to have them on board. [ACE]
