New Laptops Beam Your PC Screen onto TV

New laptops beam your PC screen to the TV

May 27, 2010 - 4:05AM Want to get Internet video to your TV? There are lots of options, but here's a pretty elegant one: new laptops that can send whatever is on their screens wirelessly to the TV.
The technology is called Intel Wireless Display,

Mighty handy on a boat. Run the nav program like Opencpn, etc through the boat on small monitors to the helm, cabins etc.

Notes on a Circumnavigation.

I guess wireless is nice, but for about $30 worth of cables and adapters I've been watching the internet on my TV for almost two years now. Mostly I do it at home, because my wife and I spent 15 years living in Colorado, and when we moved to Florida we didn't want to give up watching the Colorado Rockies baseball games. So now we watch Fox Sports Rocky Mountain, via the internet, on our big-screen TV in the living room.
