And the prize for absurd gadget of the day goes to Intel, for their computer-in-a-surfboard, appropriately named the Wireless Technology Surfboard. The surfboard accomplishes this amazing feat by having a Centrino-powered tablet PC sealed inside of it (we hope they remembered to waterproof it). Power is provided by a solar panel. Now of what possible use could this be? Do surfers really need to check their email while waiting for the next wave? Of course it was designed for the GoldCoast Oceanfest sports festival, oh wait, sorry, "lifestyle event" (must get our terminology for these over-sponsored events right). What this has to do with wireless internet access is quite beyond us.
