Intel WiDi Wireless Display LogoI missed the release of a whole new acronym  – Widi – which is, broadly speaking, wireless display technology that will see PCs hook up with displays (that have special network adapters connected to them) without the need for any sort of cabling.

This sort of thing has been tried before but thanks to the fact that Intel is backing this particular standard it likely stands a chance where it hasn’t before. Huzzah – anyone with any IT skill who works in an office knows that helping people hook up a laptop to an external display – trivial though it is in theory – is inevitably a cause for some tedium.
