    HDMI can be found on a few netbooks right now, but it’s set to become standard next year when Intel’s Cedar Trail-M platform hits the tiny lappies.

    I’m a sucker for products that make installing A/V equipment easier and these cables from Atlona do just that. The ends swivel to allow for tighter mounting against the wall. You see, some cables feature large, cool looking ends that don’t like to bend against a wall, which then pushes the flat screen out a bit or forcing the installer to cut into the wall.
