Computers and More for Wooters and Who-! Wait.

Go ahead. Try and live your life without a computer. I mean, you could probably LIVE without it, like in the sense that you would continue to breathe and exist, but you wouldn't really accomplish much in terms of being a member of society.

How do these laptops compare?

I'm just hanging out, really.

How does the Philips HD Net Connect box compare to the Roku boxes? It seems like it only streams media from devices on the local network. Does it support Netflix? Does anyone know if Roku boxes support the same features as the Philips? I'm currently leaning towards a Roku box.

Anyone have advice re: the refurb Asus? I have a Dell laptop that is approaching doorstop status (or window breaker if it tees me off again as bad as it did last night).

Does anyone know if the Asus 15.6" Dual Core laptop is a manufacturer refurb or someone else's refurb?

I don't know for sure but it does carry a 90-day Asus warranty.

Hi Dear Wootmaster TT and the Inks,
I own the xoom, this mouse (I close mine all the way though), and the Motorola keyboard with trackpad. I've been really good this year, and seeing as most every other retailer thinks it's Christmas once again... I'd love a case for my Xoom. A nice cushy one that closes, with a stand, or an otterbox, or really anything that'll save it from a premature death due to concrete/tile/anger due to breaking my toe again.
Thank you.

I have the mouse, and I am not mega fond of it. The thing is very prone to going into powersave mode if it goes without being touched for more than a few seconds, which means that whe I use it on my Macbook Pro I see that damn notification thirty or so times every couple minutes. The response time after it sleeps is noticeably slower than normal, too.

I bought the AUSA last week for one penny less.

It freezes when it wakes from sleep mode,I've yet to try shutting off sleep mode, or flashing the latest bios and stuff. The little woman just uses it for flash games and classmates.com and for 280 it was a great way to keep spyware off my computer. Maybe she sould just shut it down when she's done using it.

I don't know about on Macs, but another Wooter posted in the product discussion that there was a setting in Device Manager on Windows to turn off auto disconnect. You might hunt around for that.

Here's the post.

Does anyone else think that those speakers kind of look like adorable tiny Daleks?

The Philips HD Connect is an entirely different type of device. The Roku is a self-contained media streaming and playing device, while the HD Connect is a wireless HDMI cable. The two are in no way competing products. Trying to compare them is like saying "How does this USB BlueTooth adapter compare to an iPhone?"

The HD Connect allows you to use your TV as a second monitor for your laptop wirelessly, at up to a ten-foot range using a small USB-powered HDMI dongle. You would use it if you wanted to send a picture from your laptop to your TV without getting up. You would not use it to stream Netflix without having a laptop to stream from.

Understood. Could it also function as a wireless connection between a BlueRay player and an HD projector with an HDMI input?

Compatibility
Works with Motorola Smartphones and computers featuring Bluetooth 2.1 with HID Profile
In the box:

Motorola Bluetooth Mouse
(2) AAA Alkaline Batteries

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but will this mouse work with an iPhone 4 and a Acer computer?

Yep, just tested it with my PS3.

There is a very small amount of lag(1/20 of a second, I estimate) which is not an issue with video or presentations. I personally wouldn't use it as a permanent solution where a normal HDMI cable would work just as well, but in, say, a meeting room situation, it's fantastic.

Never says its HDCP compliant but I guess it must be or it would be useless. The specs say the range is 23 feet (not 10) but that hardly means "anywhere in my house" as the writeup suggests in naive hopefulness.
