CardBus vs. PCMCIA ..what's the difference?

    I just bought a wireless adapter from TigerDirect for $4.99 that was
    advertised as "PCMCIA Cardbus".

    I tried to plug it into my PCMCIA slot and it won't fit.

    The box doesn't mention PCMCIA anywhere and I suspect the wireless
    adapter was improperly described.

    Now that you've educated me perhaps you can give Tigerdirect a call
    and have them change their online catalog listings!

    Does the association itself still exist, I wonder?
