    and if so what does it do?

    Can it stream content from a laptop to your HDTV?

    Howard related because he was quoted $9 K to hang a tv.

    I have an LG smart TV. Basically its a TV that is internet enabled(can pick up WiFi or hooked up with Ethernet cable). Then you can use apps directly on the TV like Netflix, Hulu, etc.
    I can put stuff from my phone onto the screen using the YouTube app on my phone, but I don't know about doing that with a laptop. I can hook my laptop to my TV with a HDMI cable though.

    Thanks, yeah I can hook mine up too and it's not smart.

    They have this new thing called WiDi which is a wireless HDTV connection by Intel, but you need a USB type stick for your TV still.

    or you can spend $9.00 and get an HDMI cable. For about 9k you can get a 100'' tv. Of course the wig is dumb enough to spend that kinda money without doing abit of research.

    I have a semi-smart TV. Purchased a 60' Sharp 3D back in the summer of 11. Only a few apps and Sharp never adds any with software updates, so I use Amazon Prime via my Blu-Ray playa

    Yeah, I don't use it often, only if I want to play a movie from my PC on it.
