Intel Wireless Display
Now: Intel Wireless Display has made its way into a number of laptops, but certainly not the majority. One continued annoyance: it requires a $99 box to display the AV signal on a TV, and that accessory still hasn't dropped in price--nor has the technology been built into any TVs, Blu-ray players, or Roku-style boxes. Meanwhile, a number of competing technologies have stolen Wi-Di's thunder a bit, including game consoles with Netflix and Hulu, TVs with Internet widgets, and a variety of set-top boxes and Blu-ray players. Still, Wi-Di remains the most versatile and self-contained way of streaming your laptop's video to a TV--and unlike the browsers built into Google TV and Boxee, the content can't be blocked.
