Not long ago, I asked when the wireless home theater would be available. Well, sooner than I thought. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas this week (one of these years I've GOT to get there somehow--total kid in candy store scenario for me), Belkin demonstrated a nifty $500 gadget that lets you have all your equipment on one side of the room, and the giant TV on the other, with no wires running in between. So that means, maybe in a year or two it will be affordable to the masses!
Also revealed at CES: a new line of navigators from Garmin. These have speech recognition, which means they respond to your voice. No more typing in long addresses!
