WankerWeasel writes "The latest version of Apple's operating system, OS X 10.7 Lion, has a hidden Wi-Fi Diagnostics application that allows the user to view information about their wireless network performance, record performance and also capture raw frames. Hidden away in the System folder the application is meant for Apple tech diagnostic use but is also very useful for any user interested in diagnosing wi-fi problems or checking network performance."

    Most of the users would not understand the signal / noise graph and data anyway ;

    After all, it should just work, ain't it? (except when you keep your Mac in your hand the wrong way).

    WOW stands for Windows-On-Windows. It's the layer for running Windows apps on a newer version of Windows. So, the name does make sense, it's the system directory for WOW64, which is an application for running Windows on Windows64.

    Sounds kinky. No wonder it's hidden away.

The bigger the theory the better.
