Using Miracast from a Nexus 5 to a Netgear PTV-3000 is really seamless. Microsoft and Intel should take note re: WiDi user experience.

I just logged into LinkedIn and it suggested that I might be interested in what some "thought leaders" had to say. I can handle most of the suggestions that the one highlighted in this picture gave me a WTF moment.

+Richard Lucas you're right. I loath Toopak Chopra even more than Oprah and was rendered inchoate. Forgive me.

If anyone is looking for a business grade convertible ultrabook then you should definitely check out the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix.
Last week I picked up a new laptop to replace the two devices that I lugged around, one for mobility (a Samsung Series 7 Slate) and one for power (Lenovo ThinkPad X220T). Both devices had served me...

Nice write-up. I'm a little envious of your new toy, but can't justify the price-point. I appreciate that you pay for mobility, yet (and I've noticed this with my 2-year-old Transformer) if you're always carrying the dock around anyway, it isn't actually that much more portable than than a 13" Laptop of much higher specs.

In the case of my transformer, I detach the screen for meetings and leave it docked the rest of the time. I happen to know you're in a lot more meetings in a day than I am, so I can see how you can reconcile the price.

This is clearly the benchmark of Windows tablets at the moment.
