MacBook Air in the air?

The kids over at 9to5Mac are making the case macbookair that Apple’s rumored ultra-portable will be dubbed the MacBook Air. Besides all the anecdotal evidence supporting their case, one of their readers discovered a machine identifying itself as a “MacBookAir” in a January 9, 2008 Adium usage log — 3 days before the “There’s something in the air” MacWorld banner was revealed. If true, it’s thought that the name could refer to the ultra-portable’s weight, WWAN capability, or even Wireless USB support. As odd as the name might sound, just remember how strange we all thought “Wii” was back in the day. Ok, Air is still bad.
