Intel was not just all about processors during their keynote speech today at the IDF Conference in San Francisco. They also showed off a pretty interesting piece of technology on the tablet front: WiDi. This gives you the ability to wirelessly stream content from a tablet to a properly equipped HDTV.



Now that Intel has Infineon flying under their flag, they can work on iPad connectivity with Linux, Google Chrome OS, Android, OS X, Windows and MeeGo already compatible. This is a pretty fun little announcement that can make tablets capable of anything from remote control function to being a keyboard and mouse replacement if you want to surf from your couch and don't want to have to deal with the tablet's smaller screen when watching video or reading.
