What is the deal here? What is WiFi? How does this compare to cable or DSL on a desktop as far as the technology is concerned?

its a wireless lan technology
Its called WiFi because it is wideband as apposed to "highband" (HiFi).
Basically means you can set up a lan without wires which is pretty nifty, also you can get an adapter for your laptop (bit like a NiC) so that it can receive these signals... wonder into a coffee shop and presto wireless lan :)
