Hardware, Embedded Systems Asus' success with its Eee line of netbooks might have come as a surprise, but the company is now determined to expand the Eee brand into every possible niche and form factor. Case in point: the insanely cool Eee Keyboard, which will surely bring a smile on the faces of those who remember the glory days of the home computer.

...of wireless display protocols. It would be vastly simpler to stick the computer behind the TV (where its battery won't go flat) and use a nice, low bandwidth wireless keyboard (of which there are plenty on the market), rather than saturating the airwaves in the room trying to punt a high-bandwidth video signal around. I live in fear of my neighbours buying a TV-over-wifi display.

The only wireless display protocol of which I approve is a projector. Now, a computer like this with a (decent-resolution) microprojector in the back, *that* might be interesting.
