Wi-Fi Alliance ditches 802.11 spec codes for consumer-friendly naming scheme

"This noob-friendly generational naming convention is being applied retroactively, so no longer will you refer to 802.11ac or 802.11n. Instead, say Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 4 when conversing with members of the general public."

Well, that should clear things up for this new generation of Reg readers.
