I watch TV my laptop regularly. The shoX speaker is a fantastic device for getting sound out of a laptop – much deeper than the built in speakers.
If you are travelling on Air Canada these dates you will see the PowerMat ads. I just acquired one and will be playing with. I love the fact that there are no cords, not unlike the Palm Pre’s wireless charger (you just drop it onto the base and it charges). This technology has been around for a while, nice to see that it is finally becoming commercially viable. I definitely need less cords ….
