It’s that time of day again, when I like to kick back on my bed and watch the latest episode of “The Big Bang Theory” on Hulu. The only source of illumination now is the glow of the monitor sitting on my desk across the room. It is all quite nice until the neighbor’s dog starts barking and I need to get up and out of bed, walk over to the computer and turn up the volume.
My first solution to this dilemma is the obvious one- bring my bluetooth mouse and keyboard to bed with me. This is fine, but without a surface for the mouse it can be cumbersome to manage and the keyboard seems superfluous when all I need to control is the volume. If only there were some way I could control the mouse, the volume, the play/pause functions and when the show ends, put my computer to sleep… What!?! TouchPad for the iPhone/iPad can do all of that and so much more!?! That’s great!
