    Smart ass.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    They're still gonna have a power cable so they may as well put the signal on the power cable (like they do with Ethernet over power cables). One crowd got rid of the power cable by using fancy magnets to transmit power, but the distance was very small and the power was quite low (they charged something like a mobile phone simply by placing onto a special magnetic pad).
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    My teethbrush has done that for years. The new Palm phone charges the same way as well. The trick to this is make it work over distances of more than an inch or two.

    Plus it isn't very efficient way to transfer the power needed to run larger devices.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I suspect that "Devices without wires" will be right up there with "the paperless office" as a big lie of electronics.
    They "started" doing this, at least in the Air Force, about two years ago. Still not 100% but they've done away with at least 4 career fields because of it.

    Which? The "paperless office"? It's about time, since it's been talked about for over 50 years. I've been hearing it since I was a kid, and it was 'supposed' to be in place circa 1970. The truth of the matter is that most offices will take never get rid of or replace all the paper. Part of the reason is that paper is dirt cheap as opposed to magnetic media. The price of paper in an office is physical storage space. It's also a powerless technology. You can read a book (or field manual) by candlelight if you have to, but even the cheapest PDA requires a charged battery to run it.

    Going back to the wireless HDMI, the economics of the situation can't be overlooked either. A $50 chip isn't cheap, it's hugely expensive. Most mass produced chips are well in the $1-$2 range. It's a hell of a lot cheaper to put a $0.10 connector on a device and sell the consumer a $5 cable. Even when the price of these chips drops, I still don't see it being used for things like HDMI.

    Yes, going paperless. You are right about the risks of relying on technology but from the .mil perspective personnel costs of 150 -vs- 10 (airmen) outweighs the cost of a new battery every now and then.
