Apple Confirms $1.99 Price for 802.11n Updater

Glenn Fleishman:

A spokesperson with Apple provided me with a response that explains that the updater will be available for purchase from their online store at a “nominal fee” in order “to comply with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for revenue recognition, which generally require that we charge for significant feature enhancements, such as 802.11n, when added to previously purchased products.”
