Wirefree Office

Monday, February 13 2006

I’ve been considering trading in both my 12" iBook and Dual G5 for a single MacBook Pro in the hopes that the single laptop would be able to replace the two machines. And when I say trade in, I mean sell on eBay, where I’m happy to see that both machines would sell for pretty well, more than enough to cover a new machine with some extras.

At the same time I’ve been thinking about wireless USB pretty heavily. It’d be really neat to be able to have my external hard drives sit on a shelf in my office. The laptop itself could be out of the way as well. With a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, the machine could hide somewhere behind the monitor.

Today I ran across something that I think I could really go for: wireless DVI. With wireless DVI I can have every single computer component, including the computer, sit on a shelf in my office. I’d have a wireless keyboard and mouse on my desk along with my display. The display itself would have a single wire going to going to the power outlet. Getting rid of all but a single wire is pretty enticing, but the availability of the wireless DVI adapter seems a bit foggy.
