Laptop Screen Just Too Small?

Laptop Repair

For all you Road Warriors who get tired of everyone being crowded around your laptop,
I have just the thing for you.

This 16-inch portable monitor is a must-have laptop accessory and receives both power
and signal via a single USB cable. Powered solely by USB, the monitor does not require
a power cord or VGA cable. A built-in Smart Stand pivots out when needed and stores
flush against the back of the monitor when not in use.

 

It is compatible with both PC and Mac using the DisplayLink driver. Perfect display for
business presentations, and dual monitor setups on the go.

Watch Web Videos From Any Website On Your TV or Smartphone

Flingo

 

The problem with the new Smart TVs, DVD players and Set top boxes is that most of them lock you into using a few online services like Netflix that you have to pay a monthly fee and can not watch content that is on any other websites.

Now there is an open source software called Flingo that will let you go to a website on your computer and click a button on your browser toolbar to send the video on that page to their website. Then you can go to your Smartphone or TV and watch the video on either of them.

You just install the app on your phone, or get a TV, DVD player or set top box like Roku, making sure that it has the Flingo apps installed on it. Then go to your TV and to the Flingo app, and there is your list of videos waiting for you to view them. Works like your list of videos in Netflix, but you can watch videos from any site on the Internet.
